Growing PrevalenceStomach Cancer to Drive the Market in Asia-Pacific
Asia-Pacific generated USD 1.01 billion in revenue in 2018. The region is, therefore, expected to dominate the gastric cancer treatment market share in the upcoming decade. The main reason for this is the increasing incidence of gastric cancer cases, primarily in India and China. The World Health Organization (WHO) estimates that in 2018 there were 456,124 stomach cancer cases in China. Coupled with this is the rising frequency of new product launches, both of which are propelling the regional market.
In North America, increasing preference for targeted therapies, rising incidence of stomach cancer, and growing R&D efforts by pharmaceuticals is spiking the demand for gastric carcinoma drugs in the region. Supportive government measures and favorable health reimbursement policies will bode well for the gastric carcinoma treatment market in Europe.
Active and Timely Regulatory Approvals to Novel Drugs to Fuel Competition
According to the stomach cancer treatment market analysis, regulatory clearances to innovative products will push the limits of competition in this market. Besides these approvals, many players are collaborating with each other to deepen their footprint in the gastric carcinoma drugs market.
Encouraging Pipeline Candidates to Create Investment Opportunities
Potential pipeline candidates are being researched and developed as targeted therapies to treat gastric cancers. Targeted therapies involve specialized drugs that halt the spread of cancer by intervening or targeting specific molecules. For instance, Pfizer and EMD Serono Inc., is currently engaged in developing a drug called Avelumab for the treatment of advanced gastric cancer. Similarly, OncoQR ML recently declared that it has attained proof-of-concept (PoC) for its leading oncology product for gastrointestinal cancer called OQR100 (G17/little gastrin). Such research undertakings are emerging as one of the defining stomach cancer treatment market trends as these projects are encouraging players to focus their investment energies on enhancing their R&D capacities.
