Bladder Cancer Market 2017 - Epidemiology, Etiology, Pathophysiology, Symptoms, Diagnosis & Treatment Guidelines

Press release   •   Nov 24, 2016 05:26 EST

The bladder cancer market has remained largely unchanged in the past 10-20 years. However, significant expansion is expected starting in 2016, with the introduction of several new therapies that are projected to fuel market growth. In addition, bladder cancer has a robust early-stage pipeline that will contribute to market growth beyond the forecast period of 2012-2017. Currently, the bladder cancer market is dominated by generic chemotherapy and immunotherapy.

Though initially effective, toxicity and lack of clinical efficacy in improving overall survival have left the door open for more tolerable and effective drugs to be developed. In the past, bladder cancer has not been an area of focus for pharmaceutical companies, but that is rapidly changing as more companies focus on the bladder cancer market, recognizing the high level of unmet need and relatively clear regulatory path. During the forecast period, the market landscape will begin to change dramatically with the introduction of targeted immunotherapies. These drugs will provide much-needed alternatives to bladder cancer patients who have not benefitted from traditional treatments.
