Stringent regulations and policies for approval of the drugs restrain the market for gastric cancer drugs. Different regions have their own set of rules, guidelines and regulations set by their respective drugs regulation board. For example, the USFDA regulations for American pharmaceuticals states various conditions with regards to safety and effectiveness of the drug as well as certain labeling requirements.

Similarly, the European medicines agency (EMA) gives licenses to the approved drugs before they can be marketed or commercialized in the European continent. Teysuno, a drug for advanced gastric cancer can be only obtained through a valid prescription and the protocol is that every company must assess the effects of using Teysuno and must list out the precautions to be taken by patients and healthcare providers to minimize any possible side effects. These regulations hinder the growth of the gastric cancer drugs market.

Many companies are using combination therapies to cure gastric cancer. Combination therapies help in treating patients with two or more drugs for a single disease and help in better treating the patients. For instance, in 2019, the USFDA has approved Taiho Oncology Inc's combined product LONSURF trifluridine/tipiracil for pre-treated metastatic gastric cancer. This approval is significant for patients living with advanced gastric or GEJ (gastroesophageal junction) adenocarcinoma who have limited effective treatment options after failure of standard treatment options. Advances in the drugs for treatment of gastric cancer will have a positive influence on the gastric cancer drugs' market

On April 2019, AstraZeneca, a multinational pharmaceutical and biopharmaceutical company acquired Daiichi Sankyo for $1.35 billion.

Daiichi Sankyo headquarted at Japan is a global pharmaceutical company which offers innovative products and a robust pipeline for cancer treatment.

Increasing number of obesity cases and smoking population increased number of people suffering from gastric cancer.
