Market Overview

The development of a promising drug to treat malignant glioma has proved difficult to date, with many promising candidates failing to achieve the desired test results in the past few years. 

However, technological advancements in the diagnosis of gliomas and analysis of its progression, through various imaging modalities, have improved survival rates, thereby giving an enhanced edge for rapid evaluation of the efficacy of several pipeline drugs. 

North America and Europe are projected to dominate the global adult malignant glioma therapeutics market during the forecast period, primarily due to the significant reimbursement coverage. The market in the Asia Pacific is expected to expand at a significant CAGR between 2020-2025.

According to the World Health Organization, globally, an estimated 245,000 cases of brain and nervous system tumors are reported each year. Glioblastoma multiforme is the most common and the most lethal of these tumors. Gliomas are categorized under rare diseases; however, the incidence rate across the globe has witnessed a steady rise in the last decade. Adoption of novel drug discovery technologies, such as high-throughput screening and TCGA, has reduced the overall drug discovery time and the cost of drug development. This is attributed to a rising number of players participating in new product development and launches in various therapy areas, including glioma.

Scope of the Report

Malignant brain tumors strike deep into the psyche of those receiving and those delivering the diagnosis. Malignant gliomas, the most common subtype of primary brain tumors, are aggressive, highly invasive, and neurologically destructive tumors, considered to be among the deadliest of human cancers.
