MARKET DRIVERS

The growing prevalence of cancer, increasing number of R&D activities and technological developments in treatment options are majorly fuelling the global cancer immunotherapy market.

Cancer has now become one of the leading causes of death worldwide. According to the statistics published by the World Health Organization (WHO), an estimated 9.6 million died of cancer in 2018 and found tobacco was the leading risk factor for cancer and recorded 22% of the responsibility for cancer deaths in 2018. The noticed increasing prevalence of cancer is estimated to favor the growth of the global cancer immunotherapy market.

Additionally, global cancer immunotherapy is fuelled by the high efficacy of immunotherapy compared to other treatments, fewer side effects associated with cancer immunotherapy, and reduced chance of cancer recurrence. Other notable drivers expanding the market size are technological advances in clinical therapies, increased R&D for cancer treatment, and the specificity and efficacy of cancer immunotherapy to treat a wide range of cancers. The rising adoption of advanced therapeutics for cancer and growing implementation in the healthcare sector to treat cancer diseases is also supporting the growth of the global cancer immunotherapy market. Also, public organizations are focusing on investment in Research and development activities to develop new cancer immunotherapy. CAR–T cell therapy development is also propelling the market growth.

MARKET RESTRAINTS

High costs associated with immunotherapy drugs are difficult for some cancer patients to afford, which is limiting the adoption and hampering the market growth.

The side effects of cancer immunotherapy such as inflammation, fatigue, and skin reactions, are another notable attribute hindering the market growth. The stringent regulatory environment for immunotherapy drugs and limited access to cancer immunotherapy in low-income countries are diluting the overall growth rate of the market. The presence of alternative cancer treatments such as chemotherapy, radiation therapy, and targeted therapy is limiting the adoption of cancer immunotherapy and affecting the market’s growth rate. Lack of awareness among patients and healthcare providers in some countries as it is a new treatment approach is further impeding the market growth.
