Cancer Immunotherapy Market

Overview of Global Cancer Immunotherapy Market

Immunotherapy is a cancer treatment that improves the immune system's ability to fight cancer. It is a kind of biological treatment. Biological therapy makes use of compounds derived from biological creatures or lab-created copies of these substances.

Increase in R&D activities, improvements in efficacy & accuracy of newer medicines, surge in adoption of target therapy over standard therapy, and rise in prevalence of cancer are the major factors propelling the global cancer immunotherapy market. In addition, rise in incidence of cancer is a key factor driving the global cancer immunotherapy market. In the U.S., cancer is the biggest cause of mortality and disease, and it not only has a significant effect on the health of patients and survivors, but also has a major financial impact.

Several companies are increasingly investing in R&D activities to develop more effective treatments for cancer. For instance, TILT Bio therapeutics has announced over $10 million financing to the oncology immunotherapy assets. Companies such as Justin Wilson, partner & attorney at Withers & Rodgers, have discussed their opinion on innovations in the microbe in supporting the discovery of new drugs & treatments in the immunotherapy market.

Popularity of Cancer Immunotherapy Treatment among Patients Due to Cost-effectiveness and Less Side Effects

In terms of therapy type, the global cancer immunotherapy market has been classified into immune system modulators, immune checkpoint inhibitors, immune checkpoint inhibitors, and monoclonal antibodies. Monoclonal antibodies have been the treatment method of choice for a large segment of the global healthcare industry, giving it a significant advantage over other segments. Monoclonal antibodies have gained, as it is less expensive than other therapies. However, the global cancer immunotherapy market is expected to witness increase in demand for immune checkpoint inhibitors due to higher success rates and overall efficiency.

Based on therapeutic area, the global cancer immunotherapy market has been categorized into blood cancer, prostate cancer, melanoma, breast cancer, lung cancer, colorectal cancer, and other minor cancers. Breast cancer has been the most common target for immunotherapy. Increase in population of smokers and rise in total air pollution in metropolitan areas drive the lung cancer segment.

Rise in R&D Activities and High Efficacy of Newer Therapies to Augment Market

Rise in R&D activities in the field of cancer immunotherapy has led to the introduction of advanced variants with improved treatment efficacy and effectiveness. Immuno oncology has shown promising results in terms of increased survival and decreased toxicity. The market is likely to be propelled by a paradigm shift from traditional chemotherapies to immunotherapies. Immunotherapies in development are expected to offer more treatment options and better outcomes than currently available therapies. The introduction of newer drug classes, such as monoclonal antibodies and histone deacetylase (HDAC) inhibitors, aimed at multiple myeloma receptors, is projected to propel the global market. The market is likely to be driven by ongoing research on similar drugs with the goal of reducing side effects.

Monoclonal Antibodies to Remain Dominant Immunotherapeutic Drugs in Global Market

In terms of therapy type, the global cancer immunotherapy market has been classified into monoclonal antibodies, immune checkpoint inhibitors, PD-1/PD-L1, CTLA-4, immune system modulators, cancer vaccines, and others. The monoclonal antibody segment accounted for key market share in 2021. Monoclonal antibodies are the most commonly prescribed immunotherapeutic drugs in the world. Following Amgen's approval of Blincyto (blinatumomab), a bispecific antibody that targets B-cell lymphoblastic leukemia, monoclonal antibodies were developed as effective immunotherapeutic options.

Increase in research & development on the use of monoclonal bodies as naked antigen binding antibodies, conjugated antibodies, and bispecific antibodies has led to the discovery of new cancer therapeutic options.

High Cost of Cancer Immunotherapy Manufacturing R&D to Hamper Global Market Growth

The global cancer immunotherapy market is concerned about both research and manufacturing costs as well as market price for the end-user. For a developing organization, cancer immunotherapy research & development requires large amounts of resources, which raises worries about receiving finances. Research activities involving new technology development require significant investment, which is expected to be received with significant profits by the innovator. Cancer immunotherapy is a niche segment and requires high investment. This deters companies to enter the market due to uncertainty of receiving expected profit.

Regional Outlook of Global Cancer Immunotherapy Market

In terms of region, the global cancer immunotherapy market has been segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, and Middle East & Africa.

North America is projected to be a highly lucrative market for cancer immunotherapy during the forecast period. Well-established healthcare infrastructure and increase in government initiatives are the major factors driving the market in the region. North America's large market share can be attributed to rise in number of patients suffering from cancer, increase in adoption rate of immunotherapy, and development of bioinformatics tools that enhance the drug development process.

The market in Asia Pacific is expected to experience the fastest growth during the forecast period. New and advanced immunotherapy drugs have been introduced in China and Japan. These countries have several ongoing clinical trials as well as FDA approvals for new drug molecules and combination therapies. Approval of new treatment drugs in China and Japan boosts the adoption of immunotherapy for treatment of tumors.
