Cervical cancer is the abnormal growth of cancerous cells in the tissues of the cervix. It is the world's fourth most common cause of death in women. The disease can be classified as squamous cell carcinoma and adenocarcinoma. Squamous cell carcinoma originates in the lining of the cervix, while adenocarcinoma arises in cervical cells. Cervical cancer is caused due to the infection of HPV. There are no signs and symptoms to identify the early stages of cervical cancer, but it can be identified through regular check-ups. Vaginal bleeding and pelvic pain are usually observed as signs and symptoms of cervical cancer. Before cancer detected in the cervix, cervix cells go through changes, called as dysplasia, in which abnormal cells start to expose in the cervical tissue. Over a period, the abnormal cells may developed into cancer cells and begin to grow and spread more deeply into the cervix and surrounding areas.
Technavio's analysts forecast the global cervical cancer market to grow at a CAGR of 4.87% over the period 2014-2019.

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Cervical Cancer Market 2015-2019
Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the Global Cervical Cancer Market: F. Hoffmann-La Roche, GlaxoSmithKline and Merck
Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Advaxis Immunotherapies, Bionor Pharma, Dendreon Corporation, Inovio Pharmaceuticals, ISA Pharmaceuticals, Otsuka Pharmaceuticals, Profectus Biosciences, Virometix and Zeria Pharmaceuticals
Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “There are several treatment options available for cervical cancer: surgery, radiotherapy, chemotherapy, and targeted therapy as well asprophylactic vaccines. However, these therapies are associated with adverse side effects, lengthy treatment periods, and suboptimal patient compliance. In addition, vaccines costs are high, and the global cost of unmet needs for medicines for cervical cancer is approximately $26 million. Available therapies are not enough to cure the disease permanently, but survival rates can be exceeded. Therefore, an opportunity exists for pharma companies to develop new drugs that will address the unmet needs of the market.”
According to the report, cancer drugs are expensive, and some individuals cannot afford chemotherapy. Reimbursement plans such as public reimbursement programs reduce the financial burden of treatment. The reimbursement status of drugs is dynamic in nature and varies across countries. Factors such as the lack of cost-effectiveness can impede the reimbursement coverage of drugs.
Further, the report states that the therapies are expensive, and radiation therapy can itself cause other types of cancer, increasing the cost of treatment. Thus the overall cost of cervical cancer treatment is high, leading to fewer individuals opting for them, especially in developing countries in APAC, such as India and China, and EMEA.
