Analysts forecasted the Global Liver Cancer Market to grow at a CAGR of 7-15% over the period, (2017 - 2022). The market is currently valued at USD 707 million, as per 2015.

Liver cancer represents the fifth most commonly occurring cancer and the third leading reason for deaths related to cancer in the world. Nearly 8, 00, 000 are diagnosed annually with primary carcinoma. Therefore, the liver cancer medication market is anticipated to become an active ground for competition in the future. Nexavar (sorafenib) is the dominant therapeutic in the market, and is additionally the most important targeted medical aid that is regularly used for advanced-stage carcinoma patients.

With only a few approved drugs within the market and another few in the pipeline, it is a proven fact that incidence and mortality from the sickness continues to rise worldwide. Many new-targeted therapies are expected to enter the market in the following few years. Targeted cancer therapies use medication to prevent the expansion of cancer cells by interrupting certain molecules, known as molecular targets, thereby preventing the progression and growth of cancer cells. The treatment, also known as 'molecular targeted therapy', focuses on the cellular and molecular changes, pertaining specifically to cancer. It is thereby more effective, as compared to the other treatments for cancer, including radiotherapy and chemotherapy.
