Need a report that reflects how COVID-19 has impacted this market and its growth?
The Pancreatic Cancer Therapeutics and Diagnostics market was valued at approximately USD 3,560.61 million in 2020 and is expected to witness a revenue of USD 5,998.34 million in 2026, with a CAGR of 8.80% over the forecast period.
The outbreak of COVID-19 showed an impact on the pancreatic cancer therapeutics and diagnostics market because hospital and healthcare services were significantly reduced due to social distancing measures taken by governments across the globe. Moreover, the COVID-19 pandemic not only affected the global economy but also showed a huge impact on the functioning of general hospital care for non-COVID-19 patients in hospitals across the globe. In June 2020, an article appearing in the National Center for Biotechnology Information studied the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the use of endoscopy units globally. The study looked into data from 55 countries across 6 continents between April 23 to May 12, 2020. The study found out that the number of endoscopy procedures performed during the COVID-19 pandemic decreased, constituting an 83% reduction when compared to the baseline figures. The study also found out that there was an 82% reduction in upper endoscopy procedures and an 85% reduction in lower endoscopy procedures during the same time. Additionally, in August 2020, a survey was published in PubMed on the impact of COVID-19 on pancreatic surgery for cancer patients. The survey was conducted amongst 337 respondents from 267 centers who were from 37 countries. According to the survey, most centers performed less pancreatic surgery due to the COVID-19 pandemic, which reduced the weekly pancreatic resection rate from 3 to 1. Thus, the COVID-19 pandemic is expected to show a significant impact on the growth of the studied market.
Pancreatic cancer therapeutics and diagnostics involve medical procedures that are used to diagnose pancreatic cancer and then their subsequent treatment. The factors, such as the increasing prevalence and incidence of pancreatic cancer and advancements in molecular biology, development of drugs, and diagnostic technology play a major part in market growth. Coupled with the increase in research and development initiatives, favourable reimbursement scenarios, and the launch of novel products, the market is expected to grow significantly during the forecast period. In January 2019, scientists from the Van Andel Research Institute (VARI) developed a novel blood test (CA19-9 test) that, when combined with an existing test, can detect nearly 70 percent of pancreatic cancers with a less than 5 percent of the false-positive rate.
The market is expected to grow significantly due to favourable reimbursement scenarios in certain countries. For example, in January 2021, Myriad Genetics, Inc. announced that it will receive reimbursement for its BRACAnalysis Diagnostic System which is also used for pancreatic cancer screening from Japan’s Ministry of Health, Labour, and Welfare. The initiative is expected to increase the patient pool for genetic testing for pancreatic cancer in Japan. Also, there are many collaborations that are taking place in the market which is also expected to affect market development in a positive manner. In October 2020, Oncolytics Biotech Inc announced a collaboration with Roche and AIO for a phase 1/2 trial testing the efficacy of pelareorep and atezolizumab used for the treatment of metastatic pancreatic cancer. Thus, these developments are expected to positively impact the studied market growth over the forecast period.
Scope of the Report
Pancreatic cancer occurs when there is an uncontrollable growth of cells in the pancreas. Pancreatic cancer is categorized as exocrine and endocrine, based on the cells affected by cancer. Exocrine cells in the pancreas create pancreatic enzymes. When cancer manifests in these cells, it is referred to as exocrine pancreatic cancer. Endocrine cells are a small cluster of cells and also called ‘islets of Langerhans’. These cells create hormones, such as insulin and glucagon, releasing them into the blood flow. Cancer in these cells is called endocrine pancreatic cancer. The Pancreatic Cancer Therapeutics and Diagnostics Market is segmented by Therapeutics, Diagnostics, and Geography. By Therapeutics, the market is segmented into Targeted Therapies, Chemotherapy, Surgery, and Other Therapeutics. By Diagnostics, the market is segmented into Imaging, Biopsy, Endoscopy, and Other Diagnostics. By Geography, the market is segmented into North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, Middle East and Africa, and South America. The report offers the value (in USD million) for the above segments.
Key Market Trends
The Chemotherapy Segment is Expected to Witness a Major Share in the Studied Market over the Forecast Period
Chemotherapy is one of the main cancer treatments that use drugs to kill pancreatic cancer cells by preventing them from growing and dividing. These drugs are systemic treatments; the drugs travel through the bloodstream and damage cancer cells throughout the body. Unfortunately, chemotherapy can also damage some healthy cells and cause major side effects. Chemotherapy may shrink and/or prevent the growth of pancreatic tumors. According to the American Cancer Society, the chemotherapy drugs used to treat pancreatic cancer include Gemcitabine (Gemzar), 5-fluorouracil (5-FU), Irinotecan (Camptosar), Oxaliplatin (Eloxatin), Albumin-bound paclitaxel (Abraxane), Capecitabine (Xeloda), Cisplatin, Paclitaxel (Taxol), Docetaxel (Taxotere), and Irinotecan liposome (Onivyde).
Since the 1990s, the chemotherapy drug gemcitabine (Gemzar) has been the backbone of treatment for people with pancreatic cancer that can be removed with surgery (resectable). Traditionally, gemcitabine has been given as adjuvant chemotherapy after the patient has recovered from the surgery, which, for many patients, is a grueling procedure known as the Whipple procedure. More recently, gemcitabine is sometimes combined with the chemotherapy drug capecitabine (Xeloda). Chemotherapy may also be given alone or in combination with the surgery, targeted therapy, immunotherapy, and/or radiation. When chemotherapy is given in combination with radiation, a low dose of chemotherapy is typically used. The chemotherapy drugs most commonly used in conjunction with radiation therapy are fluorouracil (5-FU) and gemcitabine (Gemzar). 5-FU is used most often since there is more experience using this drug in combination with radiation, and there are fewer side effects.
In March 2020, the Pancreatic Cancer Collective, the strategic partnership of the Lustgarten Foundation and Stand Up To Cancer (SU2C), was awarded up to USD 16 million to four teams of top researchers, including a team at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, as part of its “New Therapies Challenge Grants,” the American Association for Cancer Research (AACR), Scientific Partner of SU2C. Nearly USD 4 million in funding is available to help support three pancreatic cancer clinical trials testing DNA repair inhibitors combined with chemotherapy. Thus, owing to the surging demand for effective treatment options for pancreatic cancers, the studied segment is expected to witness significant growth over the forecast period.
