The global cancer biologics market is projected to experience significant growth in the coming years, according to a new report titled “Cancer biologics Global Market Report 2023”. The report, recently added to ResearchAndMarkets.com’s offering, provides insights into the current state and future prospects of the market.
The report reveals that the global cancer biologics market is expected to expand from $76.46 billion in 2021 to $86.64 billion in 2022, achieving a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 13.3%. North America emerged as the largest region in the cancer biologics market in 2022, while the Middle East is predicted to be the fastest growing region in the forecast period. The report also covers other regions, including Asia-Pacific, Western Europe, Eastern Europe, South America, and Africa.
Cancer biologics encompass different types of treatment options, such as monoclonal antibodies, vaccines, cell and gene therapy, and others. Monoclonal antibodies, created by cloning a single white blood cell, are widely used in the treatment of various cancers. They are utilized in the management of non-small cell lung cancer, prostate cancer, breast cancer, acute myeloid leukemia, lymphoma, multiple myeloma, ovarian cancer, colorectal cancer, gastric cancers, and others. These biologics are distributed through hospitals, clinics, and other healthcare channels.
A key driver behind the growth of the cancer biologics market is the increasing prevalence of chronic diseases. Chronic conditions, including cancer, can persist for long periods and significantly impact the lives of individuals. Breast cancer, lung and bronchus cancer, prostate cancer, colon and rectum cancer, melanoma of the skin, bladder cancer, non-Hodgkin lymphoma, kidney and renal pelvis cancer, endometrial cancer, leukemia, pancreatic cancer, thyroid cancer, and liver cancer are among the most common forms of cancer. In 2020, chronic diseases accounted for 75% of global deaths, as reported by the World Health Organization (WHO). This rising prevalence is expected to drive the demand for cancer biologics in the coming years.
However, the use of cancer biologics is associated with certain adverse effects, which can impede market growth. Since biologic drugs are proteins, they are typically administered through injection or infusion, as they can be quickly degraded and inactivated if taken orally. This administration route can lead to injection site reactions or infusion reactions. Moreover, the adverse effects can range from common side effects like allergic reactions and diarrhea to more serious issues such as low blood pressure, hepatitis, and hypothyroidism. Therefore, mitigating these adverse effects is a priority in order to ensure the safe and effective use of cancer biologics.
Companies operating in the cancer biologics market are actively developing predictive biomarkers to aid physicians in making treatment decisions for their patients. These biomarkers utilize physiological data to predict treatment responses based on individual patient characteristics. They not only aid in the early detection of cancer but also help determine cost-effective treatment regimens, particularly for biologics based on gene therapy. The use of predictive biomarkers can significantly improve the efficiency and efficacy of cancer treatments.
When it comes to the approval process for new cancer treatments and biological products, the report emphasizes the requirement for comprehensive data. The application for approval should include all available data from clinical studies, including both positive and negative findings. This data can come from pharmaceutical company-sponsored clinical trials as well as various alternative sources.
In conclusion, the global cancer biologics market is poised for significant growth in the coming years. Factors such as the rising prevalence of chronic diseases and the development of predictive biomarkers are driving market expansion. However, it is crucial to address the adverse effects associated with cancer biologics to ensure their safe and effective use. With ongoing advancements in the field, the market is expected to witness further developments and improvements in the treatment of cancer.
