South America Ovarian Cancer Diagnostics and Therapeutics Market - Segmented by Cancer Type, Cancer Stage, Diagnosis, Treatment, and Geography - Growth, Trends, and Forecast (2018 - 2023)

The South American ovarian cancer diagnostics and therapeutics market is expected to register a CAGR of 10.5% during the forecast period, 2018 to 2023. Brazil is expected to dominate the market for ovarian cancer diagnostics and therapeutics due to the increasing incidence of ovarian cancer.

Increasing Incidence of Ovarian Cancer

The risk of ovarian cancer increases in women in the age bracket of 55-64 years. The annual mortality rate per 100,000 people from ovarian cancer in South America has increased 117.6% since 1990, an average of 5.1% a year. Thus, due to the increasing incidence of ovarian cancer in South America, the diagnostics and therapeutics market is also growing in the region.

Additionally, greater use of combination therapies for the treatment of ovarian cancer, increase in the population of aged women, and increase in healthcare expenditure in developing countries are fueling the growth of the South American ovarian cancer diagnostics and therapeutics market.

Lack of Accurate Diagnosis of Ovarian Cancer

Accurate diagnosis for ovarian cancer is critical, as in most cases, the cancer already begins to spread to the lymph nodes and outside of the pelvis at the time of diagnosis. Ovariancancerawareness.org reports that the five-year survival rate for ovarian cancer with early stage 1 detection is 93%, and that most new cases of ovarian cancer are diagnosed at stage 3 or later, leaving little time as well as room for an accurate diagnosis. Lack of early detection and accurate diagnosis is often because ovarian cancer symptoms are frequently overlooked, and easily confused with other conditions. In addition, patent expiry of key drugs is also restraining the growth of the market.

Brazil to Dominate the Market

Ovarian cancer (OC) is the eighth most common cancer among women in Brazil. OC has a high mortality rate and is difficult to diagnose. Due to its silent progression, it is contributing to the high mortality rate. Thus, due to the increasing incidence of ovarian cancer, the market for cancer diagnostics and therapeutics is expected to see a stable growth in South America.
