Market Overview

The Immunotherapy Drugs Market studied is anticipated to grow with a CAGR of 13%, during the forecast period (2019-2024). The major factors attributing to the growth of the Immunotherapy drugs market are such as the rising adoption of targeted therapy over traditional therapy, emergence of biosimilars, rising prevalence of chronic diseases and lifestyle disorders and also raising demand for monoclonal antibodies.

For instance, over the last decade, there has been a continuous rise in the prevalence of several chronic diseases, which, in several cases, need immune-based therapies. Some of the major chronic diseases include cancer, kidney failure, and heart diseases, among others. Several lifestyle disorders, both chronic and non-communicable diseases, such as hypertension, diabetes, obesity, and depression, among others, need critical care during hospitalization. Chronic diseases in critically ill patients are often characterized by long hospital stays, intense suffering, and prolonged dependence, with substantial consumption of resources. Mostly, the conditions become very complex, exhibiting combined disorders related to neurological, endocrine, metabolic, immunologic, and muscle disorders, where biological therapy plays an essential role. Thus, the rise in the number of diseases and associated disorders are among the major primary reasons for the growth of this immunotherapy drugs market.

Scope of the Report

Immunotherapy relates to a type of biologic therapy for cancer treatment, to boost the body’s natural defenses to fight cancer. It may work in stopping or slowing the growth of cancer cells, stopping cancer from spreading in other parts of the body, and in the improvement of the immune system. These therapies are made by the body or in a laboratory, to improve or restore the immune system function.

Key Market Trends

Cancer is Expected to Hold the Major Share in the Therapy Area Segment of Immunotherapy Market

As per a 2014 publication in the Cancer Research journal, by 2030, an estimated 2.1 million people in the United States are expected to be diagnosed with cancer, each year and similarly, the prevalence of cancer is more or less same across the globe too. And this cancer prevalence is expected to be same in the coming years, which is helping the market growth. As per the present clinicalTrials.gov status, nearly 1,400 clinical trials are being listed, out of which, more than 800 are being conducted in the United States, nearly 400 in European countries, and other prominent countries, such as China, Australia, and Canada. The growth of immunotherapies in developed markets is high, due to increased R&D, with better government policies for supporting clinical trials through findings and campaigns, in order to raise awareness regarding several kinds of cancer.

North America Dominates the Market and Expected to do Same in the Forecast Period

North America is expected to dominate the overall market, throughout the forecast period. This is due to the increasing incidence of cancers, rising geriatric population, growing preference, and adoption rate of immunotherapy rates across the region. In the North America region, the United States holds the largest market share. And the factors, such as increased awareness among people for the early detection of diseases, better reimbursement policies, healthcare expenditure with better infrastructure and rising prevalence of chronic and lifestyle disorders are primary factors raising the immunotherapy market in this country.

Competitive Landscape

The immunotherapy drugs market is moderately competitive and consists of several major players. In terms of market share, few of the major players currently dominate the market. With the rising patient awareness levels and high prevalence of diseases such as cancer, few other smaller players are also expected to enter into the market in the coming years.
