The Cancer Drugs Market: 2016 – 2030 – Opportunities, Challenges, Strategies & Forecasts

Release Date: April 2016

Number of Pages: 223

Number of Tables and Figures: 52

Synopsis: Often cited as one of the leading causes of death worldwide, cancer refers to a group of diseases that are characterized by unrestrained or unregulated growth of cells leading to the formation of malignant tumors that can invade other parts of the body and eventually impair normal functions.

The prevalence of cancer is continuing to grow, with approximately 15 Million new cases globally each year. However, several immunotherapy and targeted treatments have significantly improved patient outcomes and survival rates. The market is ripe for future growth with a number of targeted therapies in late-stage development, such as PD-1/PD-L1 inhibitors.

As new drugs continue to revitalize the cancer treatment ecosystem, we expect the cancer drugs market to grow at a CAGR of 9% between 2016 and 2020, eventually accounting for nearly $120 Billion in revenue.

The “Cancer Drugs Market: 2016 – 2030 – Opportunities, Challenges, Strategies & Forecasts” report presents an in-depth assessment of the cancer drugs ecosystem including treatment options, key trends, market drivers, challenges, investment potential, leading therapies, drug development pipeline, opportunities, future roadmap, value chain, ecosystem player profiles and strategies. The report also presents market size forecasts for cancer drugs from 2016 through to 2030. The forecasts are segmented for 2 therapeutic pathways, 11 therapeutic categories, 5 regions and 25 leading countries.

The report comes with an associated Excel datasheet suite covering quantitative data from all numeric forecasts presented in the report.
