Glioblastoma Multiforme Market Trends



  • The increasing incidence of glioblastoma multiforme globally to boost the market growth.


Glioblastoma multiforme (GBM) is the most common and lethal type of primary brain cancer. According to statistics provided by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), a national public health body of the US in 2022, about 90% of adult GBM patients pass away within 24 months of their diagnosis. According to American Association of Neurological Surgeons reported that in June 2021, glioblastoma represented 47.7% of all cases of malignant brain and CNS tumors. Glioblastoma affects 3.21 out of every 100,000 people. Moreover, the median age at diagnosis is 64, and men are more likely than women to obtain a diagnosis.


The figures above indicate that the need for therapies is expected to increase dramatically, which is anticipated to drive the global market for glioblastoma multiforme (GBM) treatments. Complex factors, such as aging populations, overdiagnosis, ionizing radiation, air pollution, and other factors, are the key reason for development of Glioblastoma multiforme. Furthermore, it is anticipated that the market for glioblastoma multiforme (GBM) treatments will be driven by the increase in cases of brain and other nervous system cancers across the world. However, it has been discovered that people with GBM have a rather low survival rate.


Glioblastoma Multiforme Market Segment Insights


Glioblastoma Multiforme Treatment Type Insights


The Glioblastoma Multiforme Market segmentation, based on treatment type, includes surgery, radiation therapy, chemotherapy, immunotherapy, tumor treating field (TTF) therapy, and others. The radiation therapy segment is held the majority share in 2022 in the Glioblastoma Multiforme Market revenue. This is due to the technological breakthroughs in radiotherapy and improved survival rates. Additionally, radiation therapy is another highly demanded option, especially for patients who are not suitable candidates for surgery. In case of recurrence, it is also effective and strongly advised for brain tumors. Thus, the increasing acceptability of this surgical technique for treating brain tumors is fueling the global segment's expansion.


December 2020: Bristol-Myers Squibb Company (US) has released an update on the Phase 3 CheckMate -548 trial, which compares Opdivo (nivolumab) with the standard of care (temozolomide and radiation therapy) in patients with newly diagnosed glioblastoma multiforme (GBM) with O6-methylguanine-DNA methyltransferase (MGMT) promoter methylation after surgical resection of the tumor to placebo plus the standard of care.

Glioblastoma Multiforme End User Type Insights


The Glioblastoma Multiforme Market segmentation is based on the end user type that includes hospitals & clinics, ambulatory surgical centers, and others. The hospitals and clinics segment has dominated the market in 2022 and ambulatory surgical centers is projected to be the fastest-growing segment during the forecast period, 2023-2032. This is due to hospitals are preferred by patients in terms of treatment accessibility and convenience and they are equipped with the necessary infrastructure for diagnosis and treatment. Furthermore, it is projected that the complexity of the treatment and the large number of procedures required to manage glioblastoma multiforme (GBM) will propel the segment’s growth.


November 2021: GenScript (US) expanded manufacturing capabilities for glioblastoma multiforme in the USA.  With this expansion, GenScript will be able to synthesize 200 genes per day in a fully automated facility, serving more clients and completing more difficult gene projects. With an increased capacity to synthesize 4,000–5,000 genes per month in the US, this new facility provides a much-improved capacity to manage large glioblastoma multiforme projects.


Glioblastoma Multiforme Regional Insights


By Region, the study segments the market into North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and the Rest of the World. The North American glioblastoma multiforme market accounted for the largest market share in 2022.

Europe glioblastoma multiforme market is expected to account for the second-largest market share due to the increased focus on early diagnosis and multidisciplinary care of disease in the region. Further, the Germany glioblastoma multiforme market was attributed to holding the largest market share, and the UK glioblastoma multiforme market is expected to fastest-growing market in the European region.


The Asia-Pacific glioblastoma multiforme market is expected to grow at the fastest rate from 2023 to 2032. This is due to the growing patient population and expanding healthcare infrastructure in the Asia-pacific region. Moreover, China’s glioblastoma multiforme market is expected to hold the largest market share, and India glioblastoma multiforme market is expected fastest-growing market in the Asia-Pacific region.


Furthermore, the Asia-Pacific region immunotherapy is a major trend, with several countries offering it as a treatment option. However, access to advanced treatments varies across Asia-Pacific nations, with disparities in healthcare resources and affordability which is expected to accelerate growth in the glioblastoma multiforme market.


The Rest of the World includes the Middle East, Africa, and Latin America. The main factors influencing the growth of glioblastoma multiforme in the Middle East and Africa are the increase in cases of brain and other nervous system cancers and rise in awareness about chemotherapy treatment in the region that boost the market growth in the Middle East. Moreover. In order to meet unmet medical requirements, international partnerships are investigating ways to increase access to care in these regions. Despite obstacles, glioblastoma multiforme is receiving more attention globally, which is gradually changing the landscape and giving hope to patients in these underdeveloped locations.
