Chemotherapy Market Segments, Opportunity, Growth and Forecast by End-use Industry, Key Competitors and Market value 2018

Press Release

The global chemotherapy market is assessed in a new report from Market Research Future (MRFR), which estimates the global chemotherapy market to exhibit a strong 6.2% CAGR over the forecast period from 2017 to 2023. The global chemotherapy market is mainly driven by the growing demand for the treatment of a number of cancers, whose prevalence has been growing steadily all over the world in the last few years. On the other hand, the growing awareness about the potential harm caused by chemotherapy to the patient is likely to restrict its demand and drive the need for improved methods to beat cancers that don’t harm the patient.

Chemotherapy is one of the few proven treatments for cancer. Chemotherapy, literally meaning therapy by chemicals, is administered orally or through IV and breaks down cancer cells, especially targeting the cancer cells looking to proliferate. This helps doctors get a handle on the growth of cancerous tumors in a patient’s body. The cytotoxic effects of chemotherapy have led to clear results in the treatment of several cancers, which is likely to drive the demand from the chemotherapy market over the forecast period. The growing prevalence of cancers such as breast cancer, stomach cancer, colorectal cancer, prostate cancer, and lung cancer is likely to be a major driver for the global chemotherapy market over the forecast period. Governments in several parts of the world have also begun to support chemotherapy initiatives that aim to expand the reach of chemotherapy medications so as to maximize its positive impact in terms of maintaining an entire population in good health.

However, the adverse impact of chemotherapy on the patient is likely to be a restraint against the global chemotherapy market over the forecast period. Chemotherapy medications are highly active and cannot discriminate between healthy human cells and malevolent cancerous tumors. This can lead to several adverse consequences such as vomiting, fatigue, loss of hair, and loss of appetite. This has led to chemotherapy being rejected in favor of more advanced treatment options that allow for smoother recovery. Growing product innovation to overcome the drawbacks of chemotherapy treatment could emerge as a key restraint on the global chemotherapy market over the forecast period.
