Targeted Therapeutics Market: Introduction
According to the report, the global targeted therapeutics market was valued over US$ 67.8 Bn in 2020 and is projected to expand at a moderate CAGR during the forecast period. Targeted therapies are drugs or other substances that block the growth of unwanted cells and pathogens by interfering with specific molecules ("molecular targets") involved in the growth, progression, and spread of disease. Targeted therapies are sometimes called molecularly targeted drugs, molecularly targeted therapies, precision medicines, etc. The emerging field of target therapeutics offers varied potential treatments. Targeted therapies offer the possibility of finding a cure for diseases with significant unmet needs, including orphan diseases and diseases having a high burden globally. Targeted therapy is widely used in the treatment of different forms of cancer such as renal, breast, lung, colorectal, and leukemia, and other diseases such as multiple sclerosis and wet age-related macular degeneration. The global targeted therapeutics market is driven by rise in prevalence of cancer across the globe, increase in global geriatric population, and surge in product approvals.
North America dominated the global targeted therapeutics market in 2020, followed by Europe, and the trend is anticipated to continue during the forecast period. North America’s dominance can be ascribed to high prevalence and increase in incidence rates of cancer, well-established healthcare industry, and rise in adoption of targeted therapeutics monoclonal antibodies in the region.
Increase in Incidence of Cancer to Drive Global Market
The increase in incidence of cancers such as breast, lung, and leukemia has fueled the demand for targeted therapeutics. Cancer is a leading cause of death across the globe. It is more prevalent in developed and emerging markets. According to the International Agency for Research on Cancer, one in five persons develops cancer during his or her lifetime, and one in eight men, and one in 11 women succumbs to the disease. Tobacco smoking, pollution, changing lifestyle, and transmission of carcinogens and carcinogenic infections such as HPV, H. Pylori, and HCV have increased the incidence rate of cancer across the globe.
According to the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), an estimated 19.3 million new cancer cases were recorded in 2020 and nearly 10 million individuals died from cancer-related causes. The global burden is expected to increase to 27.5 million new cancer cases and 16.3 million cancer deaths by 2040, primarily due to increase and aging of the population. Targeted therapy has proven to offer promising therapeutic outcomes across a broad range of cancers and is increasingly used in healthcare facilities. Hence, high prevalence and increase in incidence rate of cancer across the globe is a major factor projected to boost the growth of the global targeted therapeutics market during the forecast period.
Targeted Therapeutics Market: Prominent Regions
In terms of region, the global targeted therapeutics market has been segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, and Middle East & Africa. North America dominated the global targeted therapeutics market in 2020, followed by Europe. The U.S. dominated the targeted therapeutics market in North America in 2020, due to the presence of key players, adoption of targeted therapeutics monoclonal antibodies, and adequate reimbursement policies. This, in turn, is expected to boost the market in the region. The targeted therapeutics market in Asia Pacific is likely to expand at a high CAGR from 2021 to 2031. The growth of the market in the region can be attributed to the adoption of new targeted therapeutic drugs, increase in awareness about various oncological disorders, rise in healthcare expenditure, and high penetration of research activities across the region.
Strategic Acquisition and Collaborations by Key Players to Fuel Global Market
The global targeted therapeutics market is consolidated in terms of number of players. The market is dominated by key players with strong geographic presence. Key players operating in the global targeted therapeutics market include Amgen, Inc., F. Hoffmann-La Roche Ltd., AstraZeneca, Bristol-Myers Squibb Company, Bayer AG, Merck & Co., Inc., Novartis AG, and Pfizer, Inc. In March 2021, Amgen and Five Prime Therapeutics, a clinical-stage biotechnology company focused on developing immuno-oncology and targeted cancer therapies, announced an agreement under which Amgen will acquire Five Prime Therapeutics for US$ 38.00 per share in cash, representing an equity value of approximately US$ 1.9 Bn. This acquisition adds Five Prime's innovative pipeline to Amgen's leading oncology portfolio.
In October 2020, Bristol-Myers Squibb and MyoKardia, Inc. announced a definitive merger agreement, under which Bristol-Myers Squibb will acquire MyoKardia for US$ 13.1 Bn, or US$ 225.00 per share in cash. The transaction was unanimously approved by the Boards of Directors of Bristol-Myers Squibb and MyoKardia and is anticipated to close during the fourth quarter of 2020. MyoKardia is a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company discovering and developing targeted therapies for the treatment of serious cardiovascular diseases.
