Market Overview

The Asia-Pacific cancer therapy market will show rapid growth due to the rising prevalence of cancer, growing government initiatives for cancer awareness and increasing patient assistance programs (PAPs).

Lung, stomach, colorectum, liver, and oesophagus are the most common types of cancer in China. The increasing prevalence of cancer burden and thus, cancer therapies is due to a number of factors, including population growth, ageing, environmental pollution and unhealthy dietary habits. In addition, cigarette smoking, in particular, has also continued to be prevalent in the Asia Pacific region. The rising prevalence of cancer, thus helps the market to grow over the forecast period.

There are also several awareness programs initiated across the Asia Pacific region. For instance, the Indian government has recently announced the Ayushman India National Health Security Scheme under which the patients of cancer can take advantage of up to INR 5 lakhs, admitted without hospitalization and chemotherapy, medicines and screening expenses will be covered. Hence the presence of various government initiatives to curb the increasing prevalence of cancer is expected to drive the overall growth of the market.
