Study: 70 Cancer Treatments Launched Over 5 Years Pushes Oncology Market to $107 Billion 

 

A study reviewing trends in oncology found that more than 20 tumor types are being treated with one or more of the 70 cancer treatments that have been launched in the past five years.

The surge in new therapies drove the global oncology market to $107 billion in 2015, an 11.5 percent increase over the previous year in constant dollars.

Currently, more than 500 companies are actively pursuing oncology drug development around the world. Collectively, those companies are advancing nearly 600 new molecules through late-stage clinical development, most frequently for non-small cell lung cancer and breast, prostate, ovarian and colorectal cancers.
