It is estimated that the cytotoxic drugs market is likely to be valued at US$ 16.3 billion in 2023, and likely to reach US$ 18.3 billion by 2033. During the forecast period, the demand is anticipated to expand at a sluggish CAGR of 1.2%.

Additionally, government programs to lower the cost of cancer therapies and the growing usage of biosimilars promote the demand for cytotoxic drugs. It is projected that more collaborations between corporations and research institutions would emerge to examine new market prospects.

Additionally, the development of the global market for cytotoxic drugs is directly impacted by the introduction of injectable cytotoxic drugs. It involves both the creation and purification of the Active Pharmaceutical Ingredients (APIs), as well as the formulation of the therapeutic product.

Sales of cytotoxic drugs are expected to increase as a result of efforts undertaken by various organizations to raise money, educate the public, and raise awareness of the disease. For instance, to increase awareness of the condition, the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare promotes Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
