The global retinoblastoma treatment market size is expected to grow at a CAGR of 4.56% over the forecast period. The market is projected to exhibit moderate growth over the forecast period, which can be attributed to factors such as remission and the chance of recurrence, and increasing public awareness.

Recurrent retinoblastoma occurs, when cancer comes back after it has been treated and diagnosed. Both extraocular and intraocular retinoblastoma might have probable chances of remittance.

In addition, improving awareness about retinoblastoma is a worthwhile goal, and any eye complaint merits careful attention from all nursing and medical personnel. Improving awareness regarding retinoblastoma is especially important in developing countries, as the incidences of eye cancer are increasing, and many children die undiagnosed or have advanced disease at presentation, due to delay in referral to an oncology centre. Retinoblastoma educational and public awareness campaigns have been shown to increase referrals, decrease rates of advanced disease, and improve outcomes in low and middle-income countries.

However, side effects of retinoblastoma surgery, radiation therapy to the head and certain chemotherapy drugs, such as cisplatin and carboplatin (Paraplatin, Paraplatin AQ), may cause hearing loss when they are given to very young children.

Key Market Trends

Non-hereditary Retinoblastoma is Expected to hold its Highest Market Share in the Retinoblastoma Type Segment

The non-hereditary retinoblastoma (NHR) segment is expected to have the largest market size and is expected to continue the same during the forecast period.

Non-hereditary retinoblastoma (NHR), also known as sporadic retinoblastoma, is the more prevalent form of retinoblastoma. According to the American Cancer Society, 67% of reported cases (in the United States) of retinoblastoma in pediatrics are non-hereditary or sporadic.

The NHR is mostly a pediatric disease, and according to the American Cancer Society, the survival rates post diagnosis is approximately 90%. According to the Union for International Cancer Control, the average age-adjusted incidence rate of retinoblastoma in the United States and Europe is 2-5/106 children (approximately one in 14,000 - 18,000 live births).

The market for NHR is expected to grow tremendously over the forecast period, primarily due to the higher incidence rate, when compared to hereditary retinoblastoma. Additionally, factors, like high survival rates post diagnosis in developed regions, like the United States, are likely to add to the global market growth.

Asia-Pacific Dominates the Market and Expected to do Same in the Forecast Period

Asia-Pacific currently dominates the market for Retinoblastoma Treatment and is expected to continue its strong hold for a few more years. This region is expected to increase its market share in the future owing to the fact that, retinoblastoma (Rb) is the most common primary intraocular malignancy of infancy and childhood, and seriously endangers the vision and life of children.

According to the United Nations Survey in 2016, China was only second to that in India, in the prevalence of Rb in APAC countries. Similarly, according to the Japanese Journal of Ophthalmology, in 2018, the average occurrence frequency for retinoblastoma was 1:16,823 births/year and at diagnosis, 89.0% of the patients were aged younger than 3 years and 41.0% were aged younger than 1 year.

Furthermore, in countries like India, current treatment modalities of systemic chemotherapy and focal treatment have contributed significantly to disability limitation and patient survival and there is less knowledge on the genetics of the retinoblastoma gene and its protein, and there is potential for developing targeted molecular therapies.

Competitive Landscape

The Retinoblastoma Treatment market is moderately competitive and consists of a considerable number of major players. Companies like B Baxter International Inc., GlaxoSmithKline, Pfizer Inc., Johnson & Johnson, Novartis AG, Bristol-Myers Squibb, Merck & Co., Cadila Pharmaceuticals, and Teva Pharmaceutical, among others, are expected to hold the substantial market share in the Retinoblastoma Treatment market.
