Malignant Ascites Market

In 2015, ovarian cancer was observed as largest application segment. A data published by National Cancer Institute also suggests that approximately 1.3% of women will be diagnosed with ovarian cancer at some point in their life time. The key factors assisting the market growth of this segment are high prevalence of ovarian cancer and difficulty in early diagnosis increases the complexities associated with malignant ascites. It is evident that malignant ascites play a key role in ovarian tumorigenesis, especially in the formation of metastases to peritoneal organs, and distant organs. The carcinoma of unknown primary application segment was observed as the fastest growing market throughout the forecast period 2016 – 2024 at a CAGR 4.1%. According to medical practitioners the case of unknown primary with malignant ascites is one of the challenges in medical field as due to metastasis the source of cancer is unknown and ascites takes place due to multiple organ damage caused by cancer. The major factor restraining growth of this segment is lack of diagnostic technology and medical expertise.

Based on the type of treatment, the malignant ascites market is segmented into:

  • Therapeutic Treatment
    • Spironolactone
    • Furosemide
    • Catumaxomab
    • Chemotherapy
  • Surgical Treatment
    • Paracentesis
    • Transjugular Intrahepatic Portosystemic Shunt (TIPS)

Surgical treatment accounted for the largest share in the overall market at 57.7% in 2015. However, higher costs of drugs and chemotherapy products are used in malignant ascites treatment but most of the times due to late diagnosis the situation of patient requires instant relief which is possible only with the help of surgery. Drugs also form the first line of treatment in ascites management and in the near future strong drug pipeline is expected to provide highly effective drug molecule. Surgical treatment segment will undergo steady market growth in the light of perpetual rise in incidence and the requirement of repeated paracentesis. Catumaxomab is a monoclonal antibody that has been developed to target specific components of cells. It links cancer cells with immune cells, thus enabling the immune system to kill cancer cells. Several prospective studies have presented positive results concerning the efficacy and efficiency of catumaxomab in treating malignant ascites. The market experts suggest that, development of monoclonal technologies and advances in non-invasive cancer treatment research pose a serious challenge to palliative modes.

Malignant Ascites Market

For the purpose of this study, the global malignant ascites treatment market is categorized into:

  • North America
  • Europe
  • Asia Pacific
  • Latin America (LATAM)
  • Middle East and Africa (MEA)

Malignant Ascites Market

In base year 2015, North America was observed as the leading geographical region in malignant ascites market due to rising prevalence of cancers, developing early diagnosis technologies, high awareness in medical practitioners about the risks involved in ascites and strong product pipeline is expected to provide more treatment options in the near future. Medical practitioners suggest that, ovarian cancer has been described as the ‘silent killer’ due to the minimal number of symptoms associated with it at diagnosis. However, for patients who do not suffer with ascites initially but develop ascites at disease relapse, it can be the first visible manifestation of their disease. Several published medical studies also suggest that patients with malignant ascites have a poor prognosis with median overall survival (mOS) varying between 1- 6 months. Japan was observed as the largest market in Asia-Pacific due to peaking geriatric population, increasing prevalence of cancers, and high public awareness related with early diagnosis coupled with several government initiatives are expected to drive the market throughout the forecast period.
