Global Compounding Chemotherapy Market is segmented, based on Dose, Compounding Type, Delivery Method, Sterility, Technology, Compounder Type, and Application.

Global Compounding Chemotherapy Market based on the dose has been segmented into chemotherapeutic and non-chemotherapeutics. Chemotherapeutic dominated the market in 2019. The projected growth of the market over the forecast period is attributed to increased incidence of cancer, rising expenditure on medicine & science and reimbursements, and increased health benefits. The global compounding chemotherapy market, by compounding type, has been segmented into pharmaceutical ingredient alteration (PIA), currently unavailable pharmaceutical manufacturing (CUPM), and pharmaceutical dosage alteration (PDA). The PDA segment is expected to witness a rapid growth rate during the forecast period. As composite procedures in the pediatric and geriatric patient pools are generally followed, problems in swallowing and medicine handling daily contribute to higher adoption of PDA compounding practices.

The global compounding chemotherapy market, by delivery method, has been segmented into gravimetric automated compounding device (weight-based) and volumetric automated compounding device (volume-based). The gravimetric automated compounding device (weight-based) segment dominated the market in 2019. In the development of gravimetric automated composites, the adoption of chemotherapy and personalized medicines is increased. The global compounding chemotherapy market, by sterility, has been segmented into sterile and non-sterile. The sterile segment held the largest share of 56.0% in 2019. Chemotherapy based on sterile substances is meant as infusions and injections. Therefore, in this process of compounding, the risk of bacterial infection is high. The market for the global compounding chemotherapy market, by technology, is bifurcated into with robotic arms and without robotic arms. The with robotic arm held the largest share with a CAGR of 6.46% in 2019. The market for the global compounding chemotherapy market, by compounder type, is bifurcated into Pharmoduct, Equashield Pro, Medimix, Integra, and others. The pharmoduct held the largest share with a CAGR of 7.84% in 2019. Pharmoduct is an electronic and proprietary method used in the sterile processing of oncological, chemical, and biologic compounding pharmaceutical products. The market for the global compounding chemotherapy market, by application, is bifurcated into breast cancer, blood cancer, prostate cancer, gastrointestinal cancer, respiratory/lung cancer, and others.

Regional Analysis

Global Compounding Chemotherapy Market, based on region, has been divided into the Americas, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and the Middle East & Africa.

The Americas has been segmented into North America and Latin America, with the North America market further divided into the US and Canada. This is attributed to an increase in cancer patients, a rise in health care rates, and the demand for treatment with chemotherapy in the area.

The European compounding chemotherapy market has been divided into Western Europe and Eastern Europe. The Western Europe compounding chemotherapy market has further been classified into Germany, France, the UK, Italy, Spain, and the Rest of Western Europe. During the projected period, Europe is likely to follow America in terms of revenue due to government-based research program aimed at curing the rising number of cancer cases and an increased health spending push the growth of the regional chemotherapy market.

The compounding chemotherapy market in Asia-Pacific has been segmented into China, India, Japan, South Korea, Australia, and the Rest of Asia-Pacific. The highest growth opportunity for Asia-Pacific is anticipated in the projected period since this strong growth is primarily attributed to the expanded research and development support for the healthcare sector from developing countries such as China and India.

The Middle East & Africa Compounding Chemotherapy market is segmented into the Middle East and Africa. Due to fewer trends and low revenues, enhanced chemotherapy therapies are projected to improve. With a rapidly aging population, cancer care in this area is expected to increase.
