Industry Definition and Major Segments

Complimentary and palliative cancer care focuses on symptom management and prevention as well as managing the negative effects of cancer treatment. In addition to anaemia and neutropenia, other common side effects of cancer treatment include nausea and vomiting, discomfort, and bone metastases.

The global cancer supportive care drugs market can be broadly categorised on the basis of its drug class into:

  • G-CSFs
  • Erythropoietin Stimulating Agents (ESA)
  • Antiemetics
  • Bisphosphonates
  • Opioids
  • NSAIDs
  • Others

The regional markets for the product include North America, Europe, the Asia Pacific, Latin America, and the Middle East and Africa.

Market Trends

Biologics are giving way to biosimilars in the therapeutic classes of G-CSFs and ESAs. Cancer pain, chemotherapy-induced nausea and vomiting, and cancer-induced bone disorders will all see significant growth over the next five years, thanks to innovative products and high unmet needs. According to estimates, the cancer pain industry will see a shift away from opioids and toward nonopioid therapy. It will be supported by the loss of patents, a high mortality rate, addiction, and serious safety concerns with narcotics.

The incidence of cancer is extremely high in North America. Even though a high incidence puts a strain on a country’s healthcare system, the United States and Canada have developed healthcare systems and therefore invest much in oncology treatment and research. As a result, many market players are drawn to these countries. Cancer supportive care drug research has a lot of potential in China and India. Increasing biosimilar uptake, efficient healthcare reforms, and low-cost bases are boosting the market in these two countries, amongst other factors.

Key Market Players

The major players in the market are F. Hoffmann-La Roche AG, HELSINN Healthcare SA, Tesaro, Novartis International AG, Heron Therapeutics (NASDAQ: HRTX), Merck & Co., Inc. (NYSE: MRK), Amgen Inc. and among others. The report covers the market shares, capacities, expansions, investments and mergers and acquisitions, among other latest developments of these market players.
