Breast Cancer Therapeutics Market 2020: Latest Devices, Competitive Share Analysis, Growth Parameters, Company Profiles, Technology Advancements and Future Trends

Cancer is essentially uncontrolled growth of certain cells in the body that crowd out normal cells over time. When cells in the breast grow out of control it leads to breast cancer. These cells generally form a tumor that can felt as a lump, which can further be confirmed using a mammogram. The tumor is considered malignant, if the cells grow into surrounding tissues or spread to other parts of the body. Breast cancer occurs majorly in women, though in some cases men can also contract breast cancer. Mutations in DNA can result normal breast cells to become cancerous cells. Some DNA changes are hereditary and can significantly increase the risk of breast cancer. Moreover, lifestyle-related risk factors such as consumption of fast food and lack of exercise can increase chances of developing breast cancer. However, the exact cause of the disease is yet unknown.

Globally breast cancer is the most common cancer in women, with a prevalence of around 1.7 million in 2012, the second-most common cancer overall. This represents 12% of all new cancer cases and 25% of all cancers in women. Belgium had the highest rate of breast cancer, followed by Denmark and France, respectively. Marginally less number of cases of breast cancer were diagnosed in emerging economies. The highest occurrence of this type of cancer was in Northern America and Oceania, whereas the lowest incidence rate was in Asia Pacific and Africa.

Increasing occurrence of the disease especially in the developed countries is expected to drive growth of the breast cancer therapeutics market

According to World Health Organization statistics, breast cancer is the second-most predominant type (whereas lung cancer is first) of the disease globally, and the most common type in females. In women, this type of cancer accounts for 20% of all invasive and 13% of all female cancers, and is responsible for 15% of deaths caused by the disease globally, including females and males. Every year, around 200,000 new cases in women and approximately 2,000 new cases of breast cancer are diagnosed in men. The incidence of breast cancer remained steady in white women and increased to some extent (less than 1% year) in African American women. Epidemiologist’s estimates that the established incident cases of breast cancer in women will grow by over the following decade to reach 949,161 cases by 2025. This is expected to drive the global breast cancer therapeutics market growth over the forecast period.

Innovation of therapy with improved success rate is expected to offer lucrative growth opportunities for market players. Despite high costs involved in research and development, pharmaceutical companies are showing increased interest in this field. This is expected to drive breast cancer therapeutics market growth.

Key players operating in the global breast cancer therapeutics market include AstraZeneca plc, Eli Lilly and Company, Eisai Co., Ltd., F. Hoffmann-La Roche AG, GlaxoSmithKline plc, Pfizer, Inc., Novartis International AG, Puma Biotechnology, Sanofi S.A., and Teva Pharmaceutical Industries.
