Global Ovarian Cancer Drugs Market Report 2020: Focus on Epithelial Ovarian Cancer, Ovarian Low Malignant Potential Tumour, Germ Cell Tumour, Sex Cord-Stromal Tumour – ResearchAndMarkets.com

DUBLIN–(BUSINESS WIRE)–The “Ovarian Cancer Drugs Global Market Report 2020” report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com’s offering.

The global ovarian cancer drugs market was valued at about $1.3 billion in 2018 and is expected to grow to $1.99 billion at a CAGR of 11.2% through 2022.

The ovarian cancer drugs market consists of sales of ovarian cancer drugs to treat ovarian cancer. Ovarian cancer is caused due to abnormal growth of cells in ovary. This industry includes establishments that produce drugs used in chemotherapy, radiation, and surgery for treating ovarian cancer.

The ovarian cancer drugs include Paclitaxel, Cisplatin, Adriamycin PFS (Doxorubicin Hydrochloride), Carboplatin, Cyclophosphamide, Platinol (Cisplatin), Paraplatin (Carboplatin), Doxorubicin Hydrochloride Liposome, Evacet (Doxorubicin Hydrochloride Liposome), Cytoxan (Cyclophosphamide), Paraplat (Carboplatin), Taxol (Paclitaxel), Neosar (Cyclophosphamide) and others.

North America was the largest region in the ovarian cancer drugs market in 2018, followed by Europe. This region is expected to remain the largest during the next five years.

The rising incidence of ovarian cancer is driving the ovarian cancer drugs market. In 2018, according to the World Cancer Research Fund International (WCRF), there were nearly 300,000 new ovarian cancer cases recorded globally. Furthermore, ovarian cancer is recorded to be the eighth most commonly occurring cancer in women and the 18th most commonly occurring cancer across the globe. According to a study by The World Ovarian Cancer Coalition 2018, an estimated 55% rise is expected in the number of patients suffering from ovarian cancer by 2035.

Increasing use of biologics and targeted therapies are restraining the Ovarian Cancer drugs market growth. Targeted therapies act as substitutes for drugs as they identify and attack cancer cells rather than destroying normal cells. For example, Bevacizumab is a targeted therapy biologics drugs used to treat Ovarian Cancer.

A targeted therapy drug, Zejula was approved by FDA for ovarian cancer, and many targeted therapy drugs such as PARP inhibitors (targeted therapy drug) are undergoing clinical trials and are in drug pipeline. FDA has also approved Genentech’s biologics license for ovarian cancer drugs highlighting the fact many new companies are entering into the biologics ovarian drug cancer market. Hence, the growing popularity of alternatives such as biologics and targeted therapies may hinder the growth of ovarian cancer drugs market.

Drug manufacturing companies in the industry are increasingly innovating and developing combination drugs to treat ovarian cancer drugs. Combination drugs consists of two or more active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs) that are combined into a single dosage form to treat complex medical conditions. The pharmaceutical companies in the ovarian cancer drugs market are investing on the research and development of innovative products such as combination drugs to reduce manufacturing costs, increase compliance and efficiency, improve medication concordance, increase profitability and reduce side effects.

For instance, Roche’s blockbuster tranquilize Avastin (bevacizumab), is a combination drug approved by FDA in 2018, with ingredients such as carboplatin and paclitaxel, which is utilized to treat advance stage (III or IV) ovarian cancer.
