Chemotherapy Market

Chemotherapy Market: by Drugs (Alkylating Agents, Antimetabolites, Anti-Tumor Antibiotics), Indication (Leukemia, Lymphoma, Breast Cancer, Ovarian Cancer), Route of Drug Administration (Oral, Intravenous), End-User (Hospitals, Research Institutes) - Global Forecast till 2025

Market Synopsis:
Chemotherapy is a type of cancer treatment which consists of the use of one or more chemotherapeutic agents including anti-cancer drugs. The treatment mainly prevents the cancer cells division and growth of cancer cells by killing the dividing cells. Moreover, it is used in the treatment of different types of cancer such as lung cancer, breast cancer, leukemia, myeloma, sarcoma, lymphoma, ovarian cancer, and others. The chemotherapy drugs can be managed directly into the bloodstream or can be targeted to exact cancer sites. However, this treatment also includes several side effects such as nausea & vomiting, alopecia, hair loss, fatigue, hearing impairment, mucositis, loss of appetite, and many more.

According to the America Cancer Society, lung cancer is estimated to be the second most common cancer in both male and female. In males, prostate cancer is more common, while in female breast cancer is more common. Additionally, about 14% of all new cancers are lung cancers. Moreover, the American Cancer Society’s evaluations for lung cancer in the United States for 2018 are:
• About 234,030 new cases of lung cancer (121,680 in men and 112,350 in women)
• About 154,050 deaths occur from lung cancer (83,550 in men and 70,500 in women)
According to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, around every 3 minutes, one person in the United States (US) is diagnosed with a blood cancer. Moreover, an estimated combined total of 172,910 people in the US were diagnosed with leukemia, lymphoma or myeloma in 2017.

Factors Influencing the Market Scenario:
The market is driven by several factors including growing prevalence of different types of cancers such as lung cancer, sarcoma, lymphoma, breast cancer, myeloma, and others.

Additionally, it is estimated that about 2,550 new cases of invasive breast cancer are predicted to be diagnosed in men in 2018. A man’s lifetime risk of breast cancer is about 1 in 1,000.

Moreover, the technological advancements and rising emphasis on research and development in the field of oncology may propel the growth of the market. 
However, the huge cost of treatment and poor reimbursement policies in the developing regions are some of the restraining factors of the market.
