Global Cancer Vaccines Market - Segmented By Technology, Treatment Method, Application, and Geography - Growth, Trends, and Forecast (2018 - 2023)

The global cancer vaccines market is expected to register a CAGR of 16% during the forecast period of 2018–2023. Cancer vaccines are used to strengthen the immune system against different cancers.

Increasing Number of Cancer Cases

Cancer is one of the leading causes of death across the globe, with 8.8 million victims in 2015, and accounting for nearly 1 in 6 deaths. The disease has witnessed significant growth in the last few decades and is expected to grow rapidly during the forecast period. According to the WHO, almost 70% of deaths from cancer occur in the low and middle-income countries, and only 1 in 5 low and middle-income countries have the necessary data to drive cancer policy.

The incidence of cancer is increasing year by year. Cancer vaccines are considered as a new therapy and are not as popular as compared to the other alternative therapeutic drugs. However, cancer vaccines have shown great potential in both preventive and therapeutic ways. Also, with healthcare physicians looking for alternative therapies due to the huge burden of cancer cases and side effects of the present therapies, the market for cancer vaccines is expected to grow significantly during the forecast period.

The other factors, such as the emphasis on early diagnosis of cancer and technological developments in cancer vaccines are the major drivers for the market.

Stringent Regulatory Guidelines

In the expanding market for medical therapies, there are stringent regulatory policies in place to ensure the safety of therapies. These policies are well studied to fit the requirements. However, while rigorous regulatory procedures guarantee the quality of the product entering the market, they delay the entry of a drug or therapy into the market. Pre-market approval is an FDA process of scientific and regulatory review to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of drugs and therapies. There have been procedures by the FDA to heighten the post-market surveillance. Most of the cancer vaccine drugs are in the pipeline as these strict guidelines lengthen the process of the product launch and sometimes failure of the drug molecule, which ultimately increases the R&D expenditure of companies. With this, companies show less interest in the product novelty, which hampers the market. The other factor which is a major restraint for the cancer vaccinesmarket is the presence of alternative therapies.

North America Leads the Market

The North American cancer vaccines market held the largest market share in 2017 due to the large patient pool and wide acceptance of advanced technologies.
