According to a well-known research firm – Market Research Future (MRFR), the global breast cancer market is projected to register a CAGR of 9.2% accruing pervasively during the forecast period (2020 – 2023).

Breast Cancer Market: Growth Factor & Highlights

Breast Cancer is the second-most common type of cancer in women and one of the paramount concerns, globally. According to WHO, every year, around 200,000 new cases get registered, and the digits are continuously increasing. Many statistics show that breast cancer is more prevalent in developed countries such as the UK, the US, and Australia as their women are more prone to acquire the disease.

This doesn’t mean that women from developing countries like India and China are out of breast cancer’s radar. On the contrary, they are more vulnerable than women from developed regions. Unavailability of proper treatment due to the lack of funds and awareness towards the government’s programs is killing them more than breast cancer can.

Advancements in medical science and biotechnology have improved the outlook of diagnosis. However, the recovery is still challenging as survivors adjust to the scars that remain mentally and physically. Surprisingly, the Breast Cancer Market is still accruing vastly, and the changing lifestyle is to be blamed.

On the other hand, increasing economic conditions are providing better access to quality care. Technological advancements and the increasing government initiatives that are sufficiently controlling the spread of the disease are some of the key driving forces behind the growth of the market.

In addition to the adoption of an unhealthy lifestyle, other risk factors driving the market growth include increasing female geriatric population, exposure to harmful radiation, heredity reasons, and genetic mutations (abnormal changes). The lack of absolute treatment presages a large scope for the market to evolve further and prompting to pharmaceutical companies to invest increasingly in R&D to discover more effective medicines.

Conversely, high costs of the treatments, long approval time for the drugs along with the adverse effects associated with therapies are restricting the growth of the market. Nevertheless, advent of breast cancer treatments brought forward during the past few years and the approval of medication called CDK45 Inhibitors, are expected to support the growth of the market, impacting the market hugely.

CDK45 Inhibitors, when used combining with endocrine therapy for positive breast cancer hormone-receptor, patients have shown improvements in survival – up to 10 months. Additionally, innovations such as 3-D digital tomosynthesis imaging and Mammography that allow a clearer view through dense breast tissue are providing impetus to the market growth.

Also, changes such as signed bill into law that allows commercial insurance providers to cover breast screening, including 3-D Mammography and others are expected to increase the size of the market.
