Global Immunotherapy Drugs Market - 2020-2027
発行: DataM Intelligence
The global immunotherapy drugs market size was worth US$ XX billion in 2018 and is estimated to reach US$ XX billion by 2027, growing at a CAGR of XX % during the forecast period (2020-2027).
Immunotherapy is treatment that uses a person's own immune system to fight cancer. Immunotherapy can boost or change how the immune system works so it can find and attack cancer cells. Immunotherapy drugs are used to enhance or suppress the immune system of the body. They are mostly used in the treatment of cancer and act by stimulating the immune system of the body and generate an immune response aiding the production of antibodies. Antibodies produced against antigen kill the cancerous or tumor cells. The global immunotherapy drugs market is expected to grow significant growth during the forecast period due to increase in incidence of cancer.
The global immunotherapy drugs market growth is driven by the increasing adoption of targeted therapies, increase in life span of patients, and high prevalence of lifestyle diseases.
The global immunotherapy drugs market is driven by the rising incidences of cancer
The major factor for most cancers is the rise in geriatric population, as cancer rates increase with age. According to a report from WHO in 2015, approximately 50% of people treated with cancer in the U.K. are over the age of 60. Obesity, change in lifestyle, smoking, and eating habits are other important factors which are increasing the number of cancer patients. People are favoring toward cancer treatments with lesser side effects. This factor is likely to propel the growth of the global immunotherapy drugs market in the next few years, as immunotherapy drugs are found to have lesser side effects as compared to other treatments. Rise in opportunities in developing markets and immunotherapy as a substitute to chemotherapy for first line treatment are drivers which are expected to propel the growth of the market. In addition, quicker drug approval process and high prevalence rate of lifestyle diseases are projected to drive the market growth during the forecast period..
The rising adoption of targeted therapy over traditional therapy
The major factors attributing to the growth of the immunotherapy drugs market are the rising adoption of targeted therapy over traditional therapy, emergence of biosimilars. Furthermore, immunotherapy drugs is widely used in cancer treatment.
For instance, over the past decade, there has been a continuous rise in the prevalence of several chronic diseases, which, in several cases, need immune-based therapies. Some of the major chronic diseases include cancer, kidney failure, and heart diseases. Several lifestyle disorders, both chronic and non-communicable diseases, such as hypertension, diabetes, obesity, and depression, need critical care during hospitalization. Thus, the rise in the number of diseases and associated disorders is among the major primary reasons for the growth of this immunotherapy drugs market.
Risks associated with use is likely to hinder the market growth
For patients receiving immunotherapy drugs that are given intravenously, the most common side effects include skin reactions at the site of the injection, such as pain, swelling, and soreness. Some immunotherapy drugs may cause severe or even fatal allergic reactions, though this is rare. This factor is hindering the growth of the market. This factor is hindering the growth of the market in the forecast period.
COVID-19 Impact Analysis
The havoc caused by the COVID-19 pandemic continues to disrupt daily life, but its reach goes deeper and further with mounting consequences for cancer patients who need ongoing treatment. Hospitals and clinics have shifted daily resources to cope with an influx of patients with COVID-19 disease, forcing cancer patients to weigh the potential benefit of a face-to-face visit and treatment with the risks of catching the virus. The COVID-19 pandemic has impacted virtually every aspect of cancer care and research- from introducing new risks for cancer patients to disrupting the delivery of cancer treatment and the continuity of cancer research, a review of scientific literature shows. This factor will hinder the growth of the immunotherapy drugs market.
Market Segment Analysis
By drug type, the immunotherapy drugs market is classified into monoclonal antibodies, vaccines (preventive vaccines, therapeutic vaccines), interferons alpha and beta, interleukins, checkpoint inhibitors, other.
Monoclonal Antibodies segment is expected to grow at the fastest CAGR during the forecast period (2020-2027)
Monoclonal antibodies (mAbs), a type of mono-specific antibodies, are comprised of identical antibody molecules and are produced by a single clone of cells or cell line. Monoclonal antibodies have brought about a fundamental change in pharmaceutical and biotechnology sectors and in the future too are slated to play a crucial role in clinical protocol with further development of these molecular agents. Monoclonal antibodies find application in the treatment of a variety of diseases, particularly autoimmune, cancer, and inflammatory diseases. Increasing R&D pertaining to the development of therapeutic mAbs coupled with supportive government initiatives is expected to drive the monoclonal antibodies segment growth over the forecast period. Additionally, the increasing drug approvals and launches of novel monoclonal antibodies for various diseases treatments such as cancer, robust research, and development of monoclonal antibodies for multiple diseases and technologies such as the advent of mammalian cell culture, process, and formulation technology is expected to be significant market opportunities.
On the basis of therapy area, the immunotherapy drugs market is classified into cancer ( solid tumor, malignant), autoimmune and inflammatory diseases, infectious diseases, other.
The cancer are expected to dominate the Immunotherapy Drugs market during the forecast period
Cancer is an abnormal growth of the cells in the body. There are more than 100 different types of cancer. According to the World Cancer Research Fund, in 2018, there were an estimated 18 million cancer cases around the world, out of which, 9.5 million cases were in men and 8.5 million in women. This cancer prevalence is expected to be the same in the coming years, which is helping the market to grow. There are several types of immunotherapies used for the treatment of cancer. Some of the immunotherapies include immune checkpoint inhibitors, T-cells cell transfer, cancer vaccines, and immune system modulators. In 2005, 7.6 million people died of cancer out of 58 million deaths worldwide. Based on projections, cancer deaths will continue to rise with an estimated 9 million people dying from cancer in 2015, and 11.4 million dying in 2030. The increasing trend of cancer incidence has forced the humanity to work more on the cancer prevention and treatments.
According to a report from WHO in 2015, approximately 50% of people treated with cancer in the U.K. are over the age of 60. Obesity, change in lifestyle, smoking, and eating habits are other important factors which are increasing the number of cancer patients. People are favoring toward cancer treatments with lesser side effects. This factor is likely to propel the growth of segment.
Solid Tumor : Solid tumors include cancers of the brain, ovary, breast, colon and other tissues. These cancer stem cells are thought to divide to produce the bulk of the cells that make up the tumor. In 2005, 7.6 million people died of cancer out of 58 million deaths worldwide. More than 70% of all cancer deaths occur in low and middle-income countries, where resources available for prevention, diagnosis and treatment of cancer are limited or nonexistent. Based on projections, cancer deaths will continue to rise with an estimated 9 million people dying from cancer in 2015, and 11.4 million dying in 2030.
Malignant : Malignant refers to cancer cells that can invade and kill nearby tissue and spread to other parts of the body. Malignant cancer is any form of cancer or growth that can spread to other parts of the body in a process called metastasis. It is compared to benign growths or cancers that do not easily spread to other parts of the body and may be much easier to treat. Malignant can be defined as progressive, bad, and resistant to any form of treatment, but it shouldn't be understood as necessarily fatal. Caught early, many forms of cancer can be treated through removal of tumors and additional measures like chemotherapy and radiation.
