Neuroblastoma Market Overview

The Neuroblastoma Market is projected to reach USD 470.81 Million by 2030 at 3.40% CAGR during the forecast period 2022-2030. Neuroblastoma is a type of cancer that arises from immature nerve cells prevalent throughout the body. Children under the age of five are most commonly affected by the tumor. Backbone pain, weight loss, abdominal discomfort, enlarged stomach, bulging eyes, weight, crankiness, anemia, fever, bone pain, dark circles around the eyes, weakness, elevated blood pressure, and constipation or diarrhea are all indications of neuroblastoma. Neuroblastoma is divided into two types: high risk and low risk. Neuroblastoma with a high probability of recurrence has a poor prognosis and requires aggressive therapy.

The global market for Neuroblastoma is predicted to grow as the number of occurrences of the disease increases. The disease is caused by mutations in germline cells, changes in lifestyle, and a family history of neuroblastoma. Due to a well-developed healthcare sector and rising children's cancer incidences, the Americas are expected to lead the worldwide neuroblastoma market. In Europe, the increasing number of infants with cancer is mostly related to the enhanced healthcare system.


The neuroblastoma market has been segmented into diagnostics, treatment, and end user.

The market, on the basis of diagnostics, has been segmented into various tests, MIBG scan, imaging, and biopsy. The tests are further sub-segmented into bone marrow, tissue, urine, and blood.

Geographically, the Americas is predicted to dominate the global neuroblastoma market owing to a well-developed healthcare sector and growing incidences of childhood cancer. According to the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) in April 2018, article neuroblastoma accounts for 6% of all childhood cancers in the US. It was also indicated that it is the third most common type of cancer in infants. This influences the market growth in North America.

Europe is likely to hold the second largest position in the global neuroblastoma market. The market growth in this region is attributed to the increasing number of infant’s cancer with developed healthcare infrastructure.  According to the Cancer Research UK May 2016, statistics 1,821 new cases of children's cancer was listed in 2013-2015, in the UK. The increase in cases of childhood cancer in this region supports this market growth.

The neuroblastoma market in Asia-Pacific region consists of countries namely China, Japan, Republic of Korea, India, Australia and Rest of Asia-Pacific. The Asia-Pacific region is predictable to be the fastest growing region due to the enormous patient population of childhood cancer and increasing development of hospitals for childhood cancer treatment in the Asia-Pacific region.

The Middle East & Africa has the least share of the market. Majority of the market of this region is expected to be held by the Middle East region due to a well-developed healthcare sector and growing government initiatives for the healthcare sector.
