Report Highlights

  • The global human oncology adjuvants market was valued at $45.1 billion in 2009. This market is expected to reach $53 billion in 2010 and $91.7 billion in 2015, a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 11.6%
  • Breast cancer represents 28.9% of oncology adjuvant sales. This segment was worth $13 billion in 2009 and $13.7 billion in 2010 and will increase at a 9% compound annual growth rate (CAGR) to reach a value of nearly $21 billion in 2015.
  • The fastest area of sales growth overall is in the colorectal cancer space with a 16.1% compound annual growth rate (CAGR) forecast from the period of 2010 to 2015. This segment was worth $5.2 billion in 2009 and is expected to reach $8.7 billion in 2010 and $18.3 billion in 2015.



BCC’s goal in conducting this study was to determine the current status of the global oncolytic adjuvant marketplace and assess its growth potential over the five-year period from 2010 to 2015. We were particularly interested in approved oncology adjuvants and those that are late phase in the development pipeline. We have limited the scope of this report to the 30 Food and Drug Administration (FDA)- approved oncology adjuvants with antitumor or tissue protective activity. These therapies include the following product types: pharmaceuticals, immunotherapy, and radiosensitizing/radioprotective adjuvants.
Our key objective with this report is to produce an intensive analysis of the current oncology adjuvant marketplace in prostate, breast, and lung cancers, and to explore its future direction. In addition, we have included a detailed current review of other cancer indications, including colorectal, leukemias, lymphomas, digestive, urinary/reproductive systems, cutaneous, and other organ-based cancers.
We have specifically excluded a detailed analysis of medical devices; adjuvants to surgery; and other nonradiopharmaceutical, nonbiologic, nonnatural/herbal, nonpharmaceutical, nonbiologic therapies, though on occasion there may be limited discussion of significant developments. There is a limited discussion of preventive and therapeutic vaccines, which are FDA-approved in preneoplastic conditions such as human papillomavirus (HPV).
Cancerous and malignant tumors, particularly those that are in an advanced state, often are incurable and recurrent. Their etiologies are based on a host of factors ranging from genetics, radiation exposure, exposure to a chemical and/or biological carcinogen, and lifestyle factors, or any combination of the above. To further complicate treatment, there are issues of drug resistance, proper early diagnosis, and reoccurrence of the disease, while keeping the host healthy during treament.   As such, BCC was particularly interested in examining the oncology market of adjunctive therapies administered with traditional oncology treatments, which are the cutting edge of development in oncolytics.
This report was prepared as a study of the global oncolytic adjuvant marketplace based on data of incidence and morality of selected cancer indications with a focus on human therapeutics. Information is presented on the oncology industry in general, including a focus on the adjuvants market segment including chemotherapies, immunotherapies, radiotherapeutics, and natural therapeutics that may enhance a medicinal or radiation therapy of a form of cancer; new technologies; new and novel drug applications; market-related issues; and in many cases actual revenue as displayed for the period of 2007 to 2009, with projections of trends and compound annual growth rates (CAGRs) through 2015.
This study will be of significant interest to hospitals, pharmacies, pharmaceutical companies, biopharmaceutical researchers, pharmaceutical company marketing executives, contract research organizations (CROs), chemists, physicians, nurses, physician assistants, pharmaceutical directors, product managers and representatives, and all manner of institutional directors ranging from nursing homes and schools, to those in long-term-care situations, both public and private. It will also be of interest to investment bankers in the biotechnology and pharmaceutical sectors, insurance executives, and oncology product marketing managers.
This study examines the human applications both marketed and in development of adjuvant technologies in oncology. In extensive analysis, BCC analyzes each market segment, presents its current market status and presents various forecasts for growth over the next 5 years. Other factors, such as FDA restrictions, government legislation, a cancer’s drug resistance to therapeutics, and/or natural and alternative remedies are also highlighted. Our financial and sales analysis focuses on the available figures from 2007 to 2009, with estimates for the years 2010 to 2015, including CAGR as a percentage.
Both primary and secondary research methodologies were used in preparing this report. Through an extensive industry survey, inclusive of online database searches of industry-specific data sources, coupled with financial, trade, government, and marketing database sources, as well as interviews via correspondence or telephone with independent sources comprising companies, government agencies, and academic experts, BCC was able to compile data to present our analysis of the oncology adjuvant market, by market segment.
Of the companies and agencies surveyed, the majority were pharmaceutical or compound manufacturers. Additional information was supplied by known industry or trade sources.
