Improved and Effective Breast Cancer Therapies Driving the Market; Global Share to Reach $27 Billion in 2019

February 09, 2015

Wellesley, Mass., February 9, 2015 –BCC Research ( reveals in its new report on breast cancer diagnostic and drug technologies that many side effects, adverse reactions and safety concerns have come to the fore due to the introduction of newer and innovative breast cancer drugs. Therefore, improved safety and efficacy drugs are needed for treating breast cancer effectively in the long run.

The global market for breast cancer diagnostic and drug technologies reached about $22.3 billion in 2014 and is expected to reach $27 billion in 2019, registering a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 4%. According to the American Cancer Society (ACS), by 2019 it is predicted that many new drugs and biosimilars will be on the market which will aid in the healthy gain of nearly $27 billion.

Breast cancer is the most common cancer in women worldwide, with nearly 1.7 million new cases diagnosed in 2012, and the second most common cancer overall. According to the National Cancer Institute (NCI), more than 200,000 women in the United States are diagnosed with breast cancer annually. However, death rates from breast cancer have been declining since 1989, with larger decreases in women younger than 50 years of age. Currently, there are more than 2.8 million breast cancer survivors in the United States. These decreases are believed to be the result of earlier detection through screening and increased awareness, as well as improved treatment.

On a brighter side, newer and more effective treatments have helped decrease the mortality and improved survival rates. “Education and screening are two additional primary components of early detection efforts. Investment in new ways to treat breast cancer is an ongoing effort and preventing breast cancer deaths is needed,” says BCC Research analyst Usha Nagavarapu. “Personalized breast cancer diagnostics in combination with drug therapy is a growing market that is estimated to reach nearly $14.1 billion by 2019. The use of these diagnostic tests helps doctors determine which treatments are best for individual patients.”
