The global targeted therapeutics market was valued at USD 67 billion in 2021 and expected to surpass around USD 128 billion by 2030, poised to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) 2.4% during the forecast period 2021 to 2030.
The targeted therapeutics market is primarily driven by the growing burden of serious diseases such as cancer, leukemia, lymphoma, and muscular degeneration across the globe. The global cancer cases are predicted to grow by 47% from 2020 to 2040. It is anticipated that 28.4 million cases will be recorded in 2040, globally. Targeted therapeutics is a treatment that precisely uses drugs to target the cancer cells and prevents the normal cells from getting affected by the drugs. Furthermore, the rising awareness regarding the availability of targeted therapeutics among the population is boosting the growth of the global market. Rising investments towards the research activities for the protein and DNA changes that drives the cancer cells is expected to offer effective treatment through targeted therapeutics.
The cancer cells have a tendency to conceal itself from the human immune system. Therefore, the targeted therapeutics are proven effective to find such hidden cancer cells in the human body and treat those cells without affecting the normal cells. The rapid growth and popularity of the biologics has contributed towards the market growth. Increased investment in the field of biotechnology is propelling the growth of the global targeted therapeutics market. The monoclonal antibodies is one of the best selling drugs that emerged as a result of the rapid growth and development of the biologics industry. The targeted therapeutics is also effective in blocking the tumor cell proliferation. The targeted therapeutics market is boosted with the rising penetration of pharmacies across the globe. The rapidly growing online pharmacies is expected to foster the sales of the targeted therapeutic drugs in the upcoming years. Further, increasing government expenditure on the development of sophisticated healthcare infrastructure is another important factor that will play a crucial role in the growth of the global targeted therapeutics market.
Based on type, the monoclonal antibodies segment accounted largest revenue share in 2020. The monoclonal antibodies are the most effective drugs used in the treatment of various types of cancer. It is safer and has lower toxicity as compared to that of the traditional chemotherapy used in the cancer treatment. Therefore, the reduced side effect along with the effective treatment of cancer has boosted the growth of this segment.
The small molecule segment is expected to be the fastest-growing segment during the forecast period. The small molecule drugs are very much effective in targeting the specific cancer cells. The small molecule is getting traction in the developed markets for the treatment of malignancies. In 2020, the FDA approved around 89 anti-tumor small molecule drugs. Thus, this segment is expected to drive the growth of the targeted therapeutics market during the forecast period.
Based on application, the lungs cancer hit largest revenue share in 2020 and is projected to sustain its dominance over the forecast period 2021 to 2030. This can be attributed to the increased cases of lung cancer and associated death across the globe. According to the International Agency for Research on Cancer, lung cancer was the leading cause of cancer deaths that accounted for around 18% of the global cancer deaths. Therefore, the increased demand for the treatment of lungs cancer has contributed significantly towards the growth of this segment.
The breast cancer is expected to be the fastest-growing segment during the forecast period. The breast cancer has become the most commonly diagnosed type of cancer, surpassing the lung cancer in 2020. The increasing cases of breast cancer among the global women population is expected to drive the growth of this segment.
Distribution Channel Insights
Based on distribution channel, in 2020, the hospital pharmacies segment hit largest revenue share and is estimated to sustain its dominance during the forecast period. The increasing expenditure of the public and private organizations to develop the hospital infrastructure and supply the essential drugs to ensure it’s availability in hospital pharmacies has boosted the segment’s growth in the past years.
