    Market Insights

    The cancer treatment market was estimated at US$ 169 billion in 2021 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 10.04% during 2022-2028 to reach US$ 240 billion in 2028.

    Want to know more about the market scope: 

    The cancer treatment market is very competitive, with a number of large companies. In terms of market share, the market is currently dominated by a few significant competitors. The cancer therapy market is dominated by Amgen Inc., AstraZeneca plc, Bayer AG, Bristol-Myers Squibb Company, Pfizer Inc, Novartis AG, and Johnson & Johnson. Strategic collaborations and increased investment in oncology research by significant firms aid in securing their position and presence globally. For example:

    • In September 2021, Intas Pharmaceuticals will launch Oral Azacitidine for Acute Myeloid Leukemia under the brand name Azadine-O in India. It is approved for use in adult patients on maintenance therapy for acute myeloid leukaemia.
    • In February 2021, Biocon Biologics Ltd. and the Clinton Health Access Initiative (CHAI) signed a contract as part of the Cancer Access Partnership to enhance access to potentially life-saving cancer biosimilars in over 30 African and Asian nations (CAP). The agreement is a critical step in providing cutting-edge cancer treatments to patients in need and ensuring equitable access to high-quality biosimilars in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs). Through this collaboration, the company will make Trastuzumab and Pegfilgrastim available throughout Africa and Asia.
    • In June 2020, Pfizer's NYVEPRIA, a biosimilar to Amgen's NEULASTA, was authorised.
    • Gilead Sciences, Inc. received expedited approval for Trodelvy (sacituzumab govitecan-hziy) in April 2020 from the US Food and Drug Administration.
    • GlaxoSmithKline PLC purchased TESARO Inc., an oncology-focused biopharmaceutical business, in January 2019, expanding GSK's pipeline and commercial competence in oncology.

    • Bristol-Myers Squibb Company AbbVie, Inc.
    • Johnson & Johnson
    • Celgene Corporation
    • AstellasPharma, Inc.
    • Pfizer, Inc.
    • Novartis AG
    • Merck KGaA
    • Eli Lilly and Company

    Market Dynamics

    Factors driving market growth include increased patient assistance programmes (PAPs), increased government initiatives for cancer awareness, rising cancer prevalence globally, and strong R&D investments from key companies, as well as rising demand for personalised treatment.

    According to the Globocan 2020 information sheet, an estimate of 19,292,789 new cancer cases were diagnosed globally, with almost 9,958,133 cancer-related deaths. Furthermore, according to the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), the global cancer burden is anticipated to rise to 27.5 million new cancer cases and 16.3 million deaths by 2040.

    The rising frequency of cancer cases is predicted to increase the demand for sophisticated cancer medicines for better patient treatment. As a result of the foregoing, the market is expected to grow exponentially.

    The development of biosimilars, as well as the approval and use of targeted treatments with fewer side effects than standard chemotherapy medications, are expected to limit market growth. The market is being driven by the ageing population, increased cancer incidence, and extensive use of chemotherapy in low- and middle-income countries. The global COVID-19 epidemic has had a profound impact on cancer therapy. According to the American Society of Clinical Oncology, there was a significant decline in visits, cancer testing, operations, and therapy throughout the epidemic.

    Furthermore, the overall number of hospital outpatient evaluation and management (E&M) visits (74%), new patient E&M visits (70%), and current patient E&M visits (60%) decreased significantly. However, in the majority of regions, the general condition of affairs began to normalise during the second quarter of 2021.

    The growing geriatric population and rising cancer prevalence are two major factors driving market growth. According to Globocan, there will be 28.4 million new cases of cancer during the next twenty years, a 47% increase from 2020. Furthermore, older people are more prone to cancer; the average lifespan in developing countries now exceeds 80 years.

    Numerous research studies on the use of NSAIDs (nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory medications) in the treatment of cancer have been published. For example, a February 2021 research study titled "Non-Steroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drugs in Colorectal Cancer Chemoprevention" stated that there is growing evidence from epidemiologic, preclinical, and clinical studies that non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) have a positive impact on colorectal cancer chemoprevention.

    They reduce the risk of colorectal polyps primarily by decreasing cyclooxygenase-2. According to a research study published in November 2021 titled "Nonsteroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drugs Reduce Second Cancer Risk in Patients with Breast Cancer: A Nationwide Study," using COX-2 along with non-COX-2 medications during the follow-up could reduce the risk of second cancer, as could taking more than one NSAID.

    Several investments/guidelines in the industry have been directed in recent years, which would boost the overall market:

    Targeted therapy is a fast expanding field of cancer research, with researchers investigating numerous new targets. Human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 protein (HER-2) is expressed at high quantities on the surface of some cancer cells, for example. Several targeted medicines are available for HER-2 overexpression, including trastuzumab (Herceptin), which is licenced to treat certain breast and stomach cancers.

    Trodelvy (sacituzumab govitecan-hziy) was approved by the US Food and Drug Administration in April 2020 for the treatment of adult patients with triple-negative breast cancer. Trodelvy is a drug combination of a Trop-2-directed antibody and a topoisomerase inhibitor that targets the Trop-2 receptor, which aids cancer growth, division, and dissemination.

    Furthermore, the US FDA approved Tabrecta (capmatinib) in May 2020 for the treatment of adult patients with non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC), making it the first FDA-approved targeted medication for NSCLC with particular mutations. As a result of growing product approvals and increased research activity related to targeted therapeutics for cancer, the studied segment is predicted to grow throughout the forecast period.

    Segment Analysis

    On the basis of therapy, the market has been segmented into chemotherapy, targeted therapy, immunotherapy, hormonal therapy, and others. Targeted therapy is a type of cancer treatment in which medications function by targeting certain genes or proteins found in cancer cells. Targeted therapy for cancer include hormone therapies, gene expression modulators, apoptosis inducers, angiogenesis inhibitors, signal transduction inhibitors, and many others.

    According to a research article published in the JCO Global Oncology 2020, nearly 88% of cancer care centres faced challenges in providing standard cancer care during the COVID-19 era for a variety of reasons, including precautionary measures, a lack of personal protective equipment, and a staff shortage. Furthermore, this effect was particularly pronounced in low-income countries. As a result, COVID-19 is projected to reduce the number of cancer therapies available to cancer patients.

    Based on application, the cancer treatment market has been divided into breast cancer, lung cancer, colorectal cancer, prostate cancer, liver cancer, stomach cancer, and others.

    On the basis of end user, the market is segmented into hospitals, specialty clinics, cancer and radiation therapy centers, and others.

    The cancer treatment market is broken down geographically into areas like North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and the Rest of the World (RoW).
