Mordor Intelligence analysts forecasted the Asia-Pacific Liver Cancer Market to grow at a CAGR of 7-15% over the amount 2016-2021. The market is currently valued at USD 141 million for the year 2015.

Asia represents the fastest growing liver cancer treatment market due to the increasing geriatric populations. The liver has a significant ability to regenerate and maintain functionality in elderly age. However, changes in cellular and physiological function during aging inhibit the normal functioning of the liver, which eventually leads to diseases.  Furthermore, Asia has one of the strong oncology markets, accounting for nearly half of all new cancer cases in the world. These increasing cases of cancer also comprise of liver cancers. This growing number of liver cancer cases in the Asian countries require huge amount of  drugs for the prevention and treatment of liver cancer and tumors.

With only a few approved drugs within the market and another few in the pipeline, it is a proven fact that incidence and mortality from the sickness continues to rise worldwide. Many new-targeted therapies are expected to enter the market in the following few years. Targeted cancer therapies use medication to prevent the expansion of cancer cells by interrupting certain molecules, known as molecular targets, thereby preventing the progression and growth of cancer cells. The treatment, also known as 'molecular targeted therapy', focuses on the cellular and molecular changes, pertaining specifically to cancer. It is thereby more effective, as compared to the other treatments for cancer, including radiotherapy and chemotherapy.
