    What is cancer?

    Cancer is a type of disease associated with abnormal cell growth with the potential to spread to other parts of the body. The common type of cancers includes carcinomas, lymphomas, sarcomas, and leukemia. Anticancer drugs are designed to treat malignancies. Cancer is characterized by the rapid explosion of abnormal cells beyond their boundaries and invading adjoining organs resulting ultimately in death.

    Market Dynamics

    The growth of the anticancer drug market is primarily driven by the rising incidence of different types of cancers, strong technological advancements, and rising concern over high death rates due to cancer. In addition to this, the introduction of new therapies and drugs for cancer and government support to enhance the healthcare facilities are likely to drive the market growth at a significant rate during the review period. However, strict government regulations and the high cost of cancer treatments are likely to hinder the industry's growth.

    COVID-19 Impact on Anticancer Drug Market

    The COVID-19 outbreak adversely affected the market growth of the anticancer drugs industry due to the shift of medical treatment from cancer to rising coronavirus-affected patients. Patients suffering from cancer were asked to postpone their surgery due to a rapid surge in COVID-19 cases across the globe. Additionally, people having chronic cancers such as blood and lung cancer were at risk of becoming severely ill.
