Immuno-Oncology Therapy Market - A Paradigm shift from traditional Chemotherapies to Immunotherapies is propelling the Overall Market Growth

The global Immuno-oncology therapy market accounted for USD 62.2 Billion in 2020 and is expected to reach USD 194.9 Billion by 2028, growing at a CAGR of around 15% between 2021 and 2028.

Immuno-oncology or cancer immunotherapy also called as biologic therapy, is a type of cancer treatment that boosts the body's natural defenses to fight cancer. It uses substances made by the body or in a laboratory to improve or restore immune system function. The number of deaths occurring due to cancer is increasing every year and has therefore forced government bodies to take initiatives for the improvement of the health conditions of people, by investing heavily in research and development and enabling innovation and advancements in technology so as to offer improved treatments. Healthcare providers are focusing on improving treatments and reduction in recurrence of cancer post-chemotherapy. This has pushed the growth of the immuno-oncology therapy market globally.

The global Immuno-oncology therapy market has witnessed a slight decline in the sales for short term to the lockdown enforcement placed by governments in order to contain COVID spreading. The restrictions imposed by various nations to contain COVID had stopped the production resulting in a disruption across the whole supply chain.  

The major reason for decline in market during pandemic outbreak was decrease in patient volume in hospitals, owing to rescheduling and delaying of procedures for safety reasons. Furthermore, delays happened after careful review of patient history and if feasible, healthcare providers rescheduled endoscopic procedures to minimize risk of getting exposed to COVID-19 during hospital visits. All these factors negatively impacted the Immuno-oncology therapy market in 2020. 

Growth Factors

Rising R&D in cancer immunotherapy is resulting in the introduction of advanced treatment options that are more effective and efficient. A paradigm shift from traditional chemotherapies to immunotherapies is propelling the overall market growth. Introduction of new drugs has resulted in an increase in the competitive rivalry. Immuno modulatory drugs, such as thalidomide, lenalidomide, and pomalidomide, were the best treatment options available in the past few years. Introduction of newer drug classes, such as monoclonal antibodies and HDAC inhibitors, designed to target receptors related to multiple myeloma, is expected to initiate newer trends in the market.

Ongoing studies on similar drugs designed to minimize side effects are expected to propel the market for these drug classes in the immuno-oncology therapy market.
