This market research report includes a detailed segmentation of the global breast cancer drugs market by drug type (HER2 Inhibitors, Mitotic Inhibitors, Anti-metabolites, CDK4/6 Inhibitors, and Hormonal Receptors) and by regions (North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Rest of the World).

Overview of the Global Breast Cancer Drugs Market

Infoholic’s market research report predicts that the “Global Breast Cancer Drugs Market” will grow at a CAGR of 9.4% during the forecast period 2019–2025. Breast cancer is a kind of cancer formed in tissues of the breast. The most common types of breast cancer are ductal carcinoma, which begins in the lining of the milk ducts and lobular carcinoma, which starts in the lobules (milk glands) of the breast. Breast cancer is the most common cancer among women and the second leading cause of cancer-related deaths in women after lung cancer. Advancements in screening and treatment for breast cancer have improved survival rates in the last few decades.

Breast Cancer Drugs Market

The industry generates majority of the revenue from the key players operating in this field; few of them include Novartis AG, F. Hoffmann-La Roche Ltd., AstraZeneca plc, Pfizer Inc., Johnson and Johnson, Merck Co., Inc., Eli Lilly and Company, Sanofi S.A., Bristol–Myers Squibb, AbbVie Inc., and Macrogenomics Inc.

According to the Infoholic Research analysis, North America accounted for the largest share of the global breast cancer drugs market in 2018 and will retain a high position during the forecast period. North America is followed by Europe, with a share of more than 20% of the global market in 2018.

By Drug Type:

  • HER2 Inhibitors
  • Mitotic Inhibitors
  • Anti-metabolites
  • CDK4/6 Inhibitors
  • Hormonal Receptors

The HER2 Inhibitors segment occupied the largest share in 2018 and is expected to grow at high-single-digit CAGR during the forecast period. The CDK4/6 inhibitors are expected to grow at a high CAGR during the forecast period 2019–2025. Increasing life expectancy in patients with metastatic hormone receptor (HR)-positive/human epidermal growth factor 2 (HER2)-negative disease and a huge number of drugs in the pipeline make it the fastest-growing segment in the next few years.

By Regions:

  • North America
  • Europe
  • APAC
  • RoW

North America is dominant in the global breast cancer drugs market, followed by Europe and Asia Pacific. The significant share of the North America market comes from the US due to the availability of favorable reimbursement policies and the presence of dominant vendors.

Breast Cancer Drugs Market Research Competitive Analysis – The global breast cancer drugs market has massive growth opportunities in both developed and developing regions. There are many new drug launches, approval, funding, and acquisitions related to breast cancer drugs owing to the increased incidence of breast cancer across the globe. For instance, in October 2018, FDA approved Talzenn (talazoparib), a PARP inhibitor to treat BRCA-mutated, HER2-negative locally advanced and metastatic breast cancer based on a trial with 431 patients where participants who received Talzenna saw a 46% reduction in their risk of disease progression compared with those patients who were treated only with chemotherapy. In March 2019, AstraZeneca entered into a global development and commercialization collaboration agreement with Daiichi Sankyo for trastuzumab deruxtecan (DS-8201), a proprietary antibody-drug conjugate and potential new targeted medicine for breast cancer treatment. Both the companies are currently planning to file approval based on the successful Phase II study.
