The market for oral mucositis therapies is expanding alongside the worldwide cancer patient population. Oral mucositis therapy is becoming increasingly necessary, driving the market growth.


The development of collaborative tactics and increased clinical trials are improving the pipeline of oral mucositis treatments. The oral mucositis therapies pipeline included more than twenty medications in various stages of research as of March 2019 (in addition to nine commercialized treatments). The Phase 3 DOM-INNATE study for SGX942 (dusquetide) for the treatment of oral mucositis (OM) in patients with head and neck cancer (HNC) was completed in June 2020 by Soligenix, Inc., a biopharmaceutical company that develops and markets medications to treat rare diseases. Top-line results are anticipated in the fourth quarter of 2020 once enrollment is complete.


demand for diagnostic tools has increased due to an increasing number of programs launched by different organizations to enhance awareness about malignant tumor screening. During the research period, industry growth is anticipated to be boosted by partnerships and collaborations launched by the National Cervical Cancer Coalition, the WHO, the CDC, and the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force to increase cervical cancer screening. Additionally, several nations have taken action to increase screening for early screening and assist the current sufferers. For patients who need aid during treatment, the Indian government established Ayushman Bharat and the Prime Minister's National Relief Fund. Thus, driving the oral mucositis market revenue.


Oral Mucositis Market Segment Insights


Oral Mucositis Cause Insights


The oral mucositis market segmentation, based on cause, includes chemotherapy, radiotherapy, hematopoietic stem cell transplantation, and others. The chemotherapy segment dominated the market, accounting for 46.5% of market revenue (0.2 Billion). The sector for chemotherapy-induced oral mucositis is expanding along with the incidence of cancer patients worldwide and the number of chemotherapy treatments administered. Due to the radiation side effects and cytotoxic chemotherapy medications' oral mucositis-causing side effects, the market for chemotherapy-induced oral mucositis will be projected to grow significantly throughout the projection period. Furthermore, in 2022, the radiotherapy sector witnessed the fastest growth rate. Up to 91% of patients with head and neck cancer who receive radiotherapy have radiation-induced mucositis, linked to increased medical resource use and unnecessary medical spending. Patients who acquire radiation-induced mucositis should modify their diet to reduce incidental stress to the mucosa from chewing, similar to chemotherapy-induced mucositis.
