MEA Pancreatic Cancer Market Size (2022 to 2027)

The size of the Pancreatic Cancer Market in the Middle East and Africa was worth USD 0.21 billion in 2022 and is estimated to be growing at a CAGR of 6.865 %, to reach USD 0.30 billion by 2027.

Pancreatic cancer is one of the most common cancers in males leading to death due to aggressive metastatic growth and complications. The presence of several risk factors with co-morbidities increases the incidence rate of pancreatic cancer. The overall pancreatic cancer death rate in Egypt was reported at 1.48 / 100,000 population, and analysis of the regional distribution showed significant variations in rates between provinces, with the northern provinces having higher rates than those in the southern. The cancer prevalence in Saudi Arabia is recorded at 2.25/100,000, with an annual death rate of 1.64/100,000. Based on these same reports, the majority in males is at 2.75/100,000 and 1.69/100,000 in women.

Advances in technology and medicine are opening up new opportunities for physicians and other healthcare providers to treat pancreatic cancer better. Early diagnosis and intervention are seen to have better results. According to one report, only 13% to 16% of patients are diagnosed early enough to be treated with surgery, drugs, and chemotherapy. Latest diagnostic tests and therapeutics modalities are helping to fight this cancer with fewer side effects. Increased alcohol use, obesity, drug addiction, and smoking, and the growing rate of the geriatric population will increase the rate of pancreatic cancer in the Middle East and African region.

However, several factors are responsible for hampering the market's growth rate. Factors such as the lack of healthcare facilities, limited treatment options, absence of whole coverage insurance policies, and low success rates in clinical trials of cancer drugs will be responsible for restraining the market in the years to come. Moreover, the poor economic status of developing and developing regions in the MEA region challenges the growth of the MEA pancreatic cancer market.
