Report Description

Cancer is a large group of diseases that can occur in almost any tissue or organ due to an abnormal division of cells. As per WHO, Cancer is the second leading cause of death worldwide, responsible for approximately 9.6 million deaths in 2018. The major risk factors associated with cancer are alcohol, tobacco, unhealthy diet, air pollution, and physical inactivity. Around 30-50% of cancer cases can be prevented by avoiding tobacco, having a healthy lifestyle, and adopting public health measures such as immunization against cancer-causing infections. A proper diagnosis is required for effective treatment because every cancer involves a specific treatment regimen. Treatment usually includes chemotherapy, radiotherapy, and surgery.

The demand for Oncology Therapeutics is increasing on account of the rise in initiatives taken by the Government, the high use of Oncology Therapeutics for anesthesia during surgery, the advancements in Artificial intelligence, increase in mobile-based platforms, increase in the use of wearable devices, advancements in the microprocessor technology, advancement in the photoelectric sensors, rise in the number of product launches. Moreover, the wide application of Oncology Therapeutics in various diseases such as cardiovascular disease, sickle cell anemia, and other chronic respiratory diseases also propels the market growth.

Value Chain of Oncology Therapeutics Market

Insights Presented in the Report

“Amongst Therapy Type, Targeted Therapy segment holds the major share.”

Based on Therapy Type, the market is fragmented into Chemotherapy, Targeted Therapy, Immunotherapy, and Hormonal Therapy. The Targeted Therapy segment is expected to record the highest growth in the upcoming years owing to reduced toxicity, enhanced stability of the drug, and potential to deliver multiple drugs at the targeted site. The targeted therapy is a type of cancer treatment that targets the specific cancer cells in the body and does not affect the functioning of normal healthy cells which leads to the minimum adverse effects. Small-molecule drugs and monoclonal antibodies are mainly used to target specific cancer cells. For instance, FDA in 2019, approved a small-molecule drug Gefitinib to target the Estimated Glomerular Filtration Rate in the case of Non-small Cell Lung Cancer.

“Amongst Cancer Type, Lung Cancer is anticipated to grow at the highest CAGR during the analyzed period.”

Based on Cancer Type, the market is fragmented into Blood Cancer, Lung Cancer, Colorectal Cancer, Prostate Cancer, Breast Cancer, Cervical Cancer, and Others. Lung cancer is expected to record the highest growth in the upcoming years owing to its high prevalence in both the developed as well as developing countries. According to the American Society of Clinical Oncology, lung cancer is the second most common cancer and approximately 235,760 adults (119,100 men and 116,660 women) in the United States will be diagnosed with lung cancer by the end of 2021.

Amongst Route of Administration, the Parenteral segment holds the major share”

Based on the Route of Administration, the market is fragmented into Oral, Parenteral, and Others. The parenteral segment is expected to record the highest growth in the upcoming years owing to bypassing of first-pass metabolism, quick action, and high efficacy.
