The global CPRC therapeutics market has witnessed high growth in the past few years and would continue to grow at a consistent pace due to the high unmet clinical need associated with the disease. Large amount of drugs in pipeline, augmented patient awareness and untapped nmCRPC space would largely drive the market growth during the forecast period. On the other hand, introduction of novel treatments would be difficult as long as the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the European Medicines Agency (EMA) require an improvement in overall survival period. Moreover, lack of differentiation in mechanism of action among the approved and novel agents along with factors such as premium pricing and uncertain reimbursement policies would hinder the market growth during the analysis period.

The market would gain traction in the emerging countries of Asia-Pacific and third-world countries such as Africa and Latin America. Asia Pacific and LAMEA region would collectively constitute around 1/3rd of the overall market by 2020. The large undiagnosed patient population, rapid urbanization, rising disposable income, improved government funding towards healthcare and growing awareness about prostate cancer would be the prime reasons responsible for the impressive market growth in these regions. The market growth would mainly rely on the novel breakthrough treatments with improved overall survival benefits. The survival benefit would be instrumental in governing the peak sales and market penetration of novel approved drugs.
