Cancer Supportive Care Market Trends



  • Rising cancer prevalence coupled with the increasing geriatric population is driving the market growth


The aging population, increased cancer incidence, and widespread use of chemotherapy in low- and middle-income areas are all driving forces in the market. Cancer treatment has been significantly impacted by the global COVID-19 pandemic. The American Society of Clinical Oncology reports that throughout the pandemic, there was a marked decrease in visits, cancer tests, surgeries, and therapy.


Additionally, there was a considerable decline in the number of hospital outpatient evaluation and management (E&M) visits (74%), new patient E&M visits (70%), and current patient E&M visits (60%) overall. However, the general state of affairs began to normalize in the majority of regions around the second quarter of 2021. Increasing geriatric population and rising cancer prevalence are two of the key reasons propelling market expansion. In the next twenty years, there will likely be 28.4 million new instances of cancer, up 47% from 2020, according to Globocan. In addition, older people are more vulnerable to cancer; in developing nations, the average lifespan now exceeds 80 years.


Around two-thirds of all new cancer cases are diagnosed in persons 65 years of age and older, according to the SEER Database of the U.S. National Cancer Institute, demonstrating that aging can make people more susceptible to such diseases. Major firms are mainly concentrating on the development of novel targeted medicines for the treatment of cancer as a result of the surge in technical breakthroughs. It has fewer side effects than conventional therapies like chemotherapy. These elements may limit market expansion during the anticipated term. For instance, the U.S. FDA granted Trodelvy (sacituzumab govitecan-hziy) expedited approval in April 2020 to Gilead Sciences, Inc.


Patients with triple-negative breast cancer are eligible to receive therapy with it. It is an antibody-drug combination that, unlike chemotherapy and other conventional treatments, only targets and kills certain infected cells through its poisonous chemical molecule. The popularity of biosimilars and generic medications is another issue impeding market expansion. Branded drug sales are being hampered by the introduction of biosimilar versions of popular medications. For instance, Pfizer's NYVEPRIA, a biosimilar to Amgen's NEULASTA, was approved in June 2020. Thus, driving the Cancer Supportive Care market revenue.
