Rapidly Growing Health Care and Pharmaceutical Industries
Drug class such as anti-PD-1 monoclonal antibodies is routinely used in the treatment of head and neck (HNC) cancer. The global head and neck cancer market has witnessed an increase in new product approvals in the past few years. This is anticipated to propel the global market and provide lucrative opportunities during the forecast period. For instance, in November 2016, Bristol-Myers Squibb Company announced the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approval for Opdivo (nivolumab) injection for intravenous use in the treatment of patients with recurrent or metastatic squamous cell carcinoma of the head and neck (SCCHN).
High Failure Rates of Late-stage Products in Clinical Trials to Restrain Market
Rise in scientific and technological advancements in R&D and manufacturing processes is expected to increase the efficiency of drug development. However, a significant number of clinical trials fail to meet desired results. This acts as a major restraint of the global head and neck cancer market and in turn limits the entry of new players. For instance, in 2017, phase 3 trial designed to evaluate pembrolizumab for the treatment of patients with recurrent or metastatic head and neck squamous cell carcinoma failed to meet its pre-specified primary endpoint of overall survival.

In terms of revenue, the head and neck cancer market in Asia Pacific is projected to expand at a CAGR of 10.2% during the forecast period. Rapidly increasing patient population in the region is expected to boost demand for therapeutics for the treatment of head and neck cancer, which in turn is likely to drive the market from 2018 to 2026. Growth of the biopharmaceutical industry and government initiatives in the region are anticipated to provide lucrative opportunities for manufacturers in the next few years. According to the Indian Council for Medical Research (ICMR), 90% of oral cancer patients in rural areas belong to the lower or lower-middle socio-economic class.
