During the forecast period of 2021-2031, the global chemotherapy drug market is expected to rise at a substantial rate owing to the rise in the prevalence of cancer across the globe. Concurrently, the popularity of advanced therapies such as biological and targeted pharmacological therapies may drive the expansion of the cancer drug market. Immunotherapy has gained popularity in the treatment of cancer because it strengthens the immune system to combat malignant cells and has fewer side effects than conventional therapies such as chemotherapy or radiation. Furthermore, increased cancer awareness and early cancer screening aid in the growth of the global chemotherapy drugs market. However, the high potential of emerging economies and the higher number of possible pharmaceuticals in the pipeline are likely to create lucrative growth for the chemotherapy drugs market.
Chemotherapy is a cancer treatment approach that employs anti-cancer drugs. Chemotherapy stops cancer cells' primary activity, which is cell division. Chemotherapy uses either site-specific or intravenous drug delivery. Despite advances in cancer treatment technology, the disease still claims the lives of up to 8 million people annually. Chemotherapy or anti-cancer drugs are substances that can denature cancer cells by halting their proliferation. Though anticancer drugs inhibit cancer cell division, normal cells are also affected during the process.

Chemotherapy has played a major role in extending the lifespan of people with cancer for a few years longer than they would have otherwise. The most recent breakthrough in chemotherapy is the injection of cancer-fighting drugs (customized nanoparticles) into polluted areas without hurting healthy cells. This approach has been demonstrated to remove cancerous cells while leaving healthy tissue alone. Photon lasers are used by doctors to investigate the duration and spread of these drugs to kill cancer cells. The research and development activities coupled with clinical trials have proved to be successful in treating lower-stage cancer patients and are expected to bring voluminous growth to the chemotherapeutic market in the near future.
However, the high cost of new drug research, as well as the risk of failure and adverse effects associated with cancer treatment regimens, and the development of treatment-related adverse effects. Additionally, chemotherapy treatment is a time-consuming and labor-intensive procedure.
Following an early-stage cancer surgery, the majority of oncologists will use chemotherapy drugs to prevent the further multiplication of dangerous cells, which will raise the chemotherapy drugs market. Apart from that, chemotherapy treatments provide other advantages, such as shrinking tumor cells, slowing the growth of cancerous cells, and improving a person's life duration, all of which contribute to the growth of the chemotherapy drugs market.
The growth of the chemotherapy medicine market is being propelled by a rise in the number of R&D activities. This will create advantageous chances for the growth of the chemotherapy drug market. Furthermore, the growing number of emerging markets and new product launches will give further growth opportunities for the chemotherapy drugs market growth.
Among the market's leading companies are F. Hoffmann-La Roche Ltd, Sanofi, Amgen Inc., Eli Lilly & Company, and Novartis AG,. These competitors want to increase their market position through various tactics such as mergers and acquisitions, partnerships, collaborations, new product launches and development of existing product portfolios, and so on.
Because of the presence of key manufacturers and a growing geriatric population, North America dominates the chemotherapy drug market. Furthermore, high R&D spending and the presence of skilled individuals would accelerate the market's growth rate in this area.
Due to increased government awareness programs and rising healthcare expenditure in this region, Asia-Pacific is predicted to expand during the forecast period. Furthermore, the increasing availability of generic pharmaceuticals would help to moderate the market's growth rate in this region.
