They are further divided based on presumed cell of origin found in the tumor. Soft tissue sarcoma is the most common type of sarcoma, accounting for more than 80% of all sarcoma cases. Sarcoma affects all age groups but is more common in children. It is estimated that about 15% of cancer diagnosis in children are sarcomas. Rise in the incidence and prevalence of sarcoma, strong clinical pipeline of sarcoma drugs, rise in government initiatives toward orphan drug development, and increase in research and development expenditure are likely to fuel the growth of the global sarcoma market during forecast period. However, disappointing results of promising pipeline molecules, high cost of treatment and side effect associated with it, and stringent government regulations are estimated to hamper the growth of the global sarcoma market in in the coming years. 

The global sarcoma market can be segmented based on type, treatment, and geography. Based on type, the sarcoma market can be segmented into soft tissue sarcoma and bone sarcoma.

The chemotherapy segment expected to account for a significant share of the market during forecast period due to high cost of chemotherapy and it preference as the first line therapy for the treatment of sarcoma. Rise in the incidence and prevalence of sarcoma, increase in demand for targeted therapy and personalized therapy, and significant pipeline molecules (such as afatinib and temsirolimus) are likely to propel the market in the near future.

The market in Asia Pacific is anticipated to expand at a high CAGR during the forecast period. The market is likely to be driven by India and China, owing to a significant patient base, increased government initiatives, and developing health care infrastructure.
