DUBLIN, Jan. 4, 2017 /PRNewswire/ --
Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "Global Prostate Cancer Drugs Market 2016-2020" report to their offering.
The report forecasts the global prostate cancer drugs market to grow at a CAGR of 9.21% during the period 2016-2020.
The report has been prepared based on an in-depth market analysis with inputs from industry experts. The report covers the market landscape and its growth prospects over the coming years. The report also includes a discussion of the key vendors operating in this market.
The market has been witnessing a growing popularity for targeted therapies and immunotherapies, owing to their specific mechanism of action. Immunotherapies such as vaccines, and immune checkpoint inhibitors are gaining traction in the market driven by their limited side-effects, and high efficacy.
According to the report, prostate cancer is characterized by an abnormal growth of testosterone (a hormone in the male reproductive system). Therefore, researchers have developed hormone therapies, which act by reducing the amount of testosterone in the body and stops the growth of cancer cells for several years. This development of hormone therapies and subsequent establishment of their clinical profiles have led to increased adoption among physicians.
Further, the report states that in emerging markets, the increasing costs coupled with lack of healthcare infrastructure has hindered the adoption rates of prostate cancer drugs. Most of the patients are unable to invest in these high-cost treatment options and are likely to discontinue these treatment options during the forecast period.
