The abnormal growth of endometrium cells in the uterus is termed as endometrial cancer which is also known as uterine cancer. Endometrial cancer is diagnosed at an early stage as women experience abnormal vaginal bleeding. It is reported that endometrial cancer is the sixth most common cancer in women all over the world. The endometrial cancer market is expected to witness a tremendous growth owing to the rising prevalence of endometrial cancer. Other key factors such as the growing obesity among women, increase in menopausal hormone therapy, change in sedentary lifestyle, socioeconomic factors, growing consumption of unhealthy diet, increasing occurrence of Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS), and increasing prevalence of breast or ovarian tumor are contributing towards the growth of the market. Diabetes is another risk factor that leads to the development of endometrial cancer. According to the American Cancer Society, endometrial cancer is four times common in diabetic women than in normal women. Such factors contribute to endometrial cancer among women.
However, factors such as high cost of diagnostic procedures, expensive treatments, and side effects associated with hysterectomy procedures are expected to restrict the market growth during the forecast period.

Regional Market Summary
The endometrial cancer market is dominated by North America owing to the rising prevalence of breast cancer. The US Breast Cancer Statistics projected 266,120 new cases of invasive breast cancer and 63,960 new cases of non-invasive breast cancer in 2018. Other factors such as increasing healthcare expenditure and increasing obesity within the female population drive the market growth in this region.
It is estimated that Europe stood second in the global endometrial cancer market owing to the increasing prevalence of ovarian cancer in this region. According to the Cancer Research UK in 2015, 7270 new cases of ovarian cancer were registered in the UK. Thus, the increasing prevalence of ovarian cancer in this region influences the growth of this market in this region.
Asia-Pacific was projected to be the fastest growing region for the global endometrial cancer market in 2017. The market is expected to witness growth owing to the rising prevalence of diabetes in women, changing lifestyle, and growing obesity within the female population. According to the American Diabetes Association, diabetes in South Asia is expected to rise by 150% from 2000 to 2035. This provides a favorable background for the market to grow.
The Middle East and Africa holds the least share in the global endometrial cancer market due to the presence of stringent government policies and poor economies. However, the market is expected to witness growth due to the rising healthcare expenditure, growing private sector in the healthcare domain, and insurance coverage in the Middle East.
