Breast Cancer Treatment Market

Breast cancer is hormone related disorder and the factors that transform the risk of this cancer when diagnosed premenopausally and when diagnosed (much more commonly) postmenopausally are not the same. According to World Cancer Research Fund International, breast cancer is the most common cancer in women worldwide with nearly 1.7 million new cases diagnosed in 2012.This represents about 12% of all new cancer cases and 25% of all cancers in women.  The therapeutic treatment of breast cancer ranges from regular regimens to biological drugs. Market experts suggest that overall the market is experiencing significant growth driven by rising awareness among the population and efficient drug therapies being introduced by pharmaceutical manufacturers. In addition to that, accelerated approvals have been observed for drugs against breast cancer, which is providing momentum for breast cancer research and shifting the equilibrium toward research and development of novel therapies with minimum side effects and maximum efficiency against breast cancer treatment.

Based on the type of drug class, the breast cancer treatment market is segmented into:

  • HER2 Inhibitors
    • Trastuzumab
    • Pertuzumab
    • Ado-trastuzumab emtansine
    • Lapatinib
  • Mitotic Inhibitors
    • Eribulin
    • Docetaxel
    • Ixabepilone
  • Anti-metabolites
    • Gemcitabine
  • Aromatase Inhibitors
    • Leterozole
    • Exemestane
    • Anastrozole
    • Palbociclib
    • Everolimus
  • Hormone Receptor Antagonists
    • Goserelin Acetate
    • Fulvestrant
    • Toremifene

Breast Cancer Treatment Market

The major classes of drugs for breast cancer are HER2 inhibitors, anti-metabolites, aromatase inhibitors, mitotic inhibitors, and hormone receptors antagonists. In base year 2015, HER 2 inhibitors segment accounted for the major share of the breast cancer treatment market. The key factors assisting the growth of this segment are premium cost, efficient treatment, less side effects, and supported and recommended by several non-governmental and globally acknowledged organizations. Targeted therapies have been treatment of choice in most of the parts of the world because targeted cancer therapies are treatments that target specific characteristics of cancer cells, such as a protein that allows the cancer cells to grow in a rapid or abnormal way, and less likely than chemotherapy to harm normal, healthy cells.       

For the purpose of this study, the global breast cancer treatment market is categorized into:

  • North America
  • Europe
  • Asia Pacific
  • Latin America
  • Middle East & Africa


Breast Cancer Treatment Market

In base year 2015, North America and Europe dominated the market with around 60.7% of the overall market share. The key factors assisting the growth of breast cancer treatment market in these regions are increasing social awareness related to diagnosis and treatment of breast cancer, rising prevalence of breast cancer and advanced healthcare infrastructure along with supportive reimbursement policies. Market experts suggest that, as North American and European markets are the most lucrative pharmaceutical markets key breast cancer treatment drugs are initially approved in these regions. The upcoming pipeline drugs are expected to play crucial role in the breast cancer treatment market where early market entry and high drug prices would be the key factors that will boost the overall breast cancer treatment market in North America and Europe initially. On the other hand, Asia-Pacific breast cancer treatment is anticipated to experience significant growth throughout the forecast period 2016 – 2022. In base year 2015, Japan was observed as the leading market followed by China and India. India and China have a large low- and middle-income population; hence, demand for low cost treatments will be high. However, in case of life threatening diseases such as breast cancer the market scenario is expected to be different as the available and upcoming treatments are more efficient and premium.
