Increase in geriatric population, increase in number of cancer cases owing to unhealthy lifestyle, Innovation in antibody engineering and development of polyspecific antibodies is set to drive the market. Oncology Market size was valued at $136.7 billion in 2019 and is poised to grow at a CAGR of 11.9% during the forecast period 2020-2025.

The Oncology Market is growing at significant rate as there is increase in prevalence of Cancer along with unhealthy lifestyle and increase in geriatric population. Pharma companies are active in oncology and now in race to harness new data sources and digital platform so they can engage patients, providers, and regulators more effectively. The U.S. Drug and Food Administration accelerated approval of Rozlytrek a treatment for adult and adolescent patients whose cancer have specific genetic effect neurotrophic tyrosine receptor kinase (NTRK) gene fusion and for whom there is no effective treatment. High market growth potential in developing nations, rise in the number of pipeline products, and the upsurge in demand for personalized medicines are poised to create new opportunities for the Oncology Market during the forecast period 2020-2025.

Recent advancement in Oncology such as medical infrastructures development with increase in Awareness among population, increase in successful developments, discoveries and launch of new oncology therapies are set to drive the oncology therapies demand. However, the development of the oncology drugs takes long time owing to high cost of manufacturer and procedures for Cancer Monoclonal Antibody drugs. The development of antibodies requires lot of investment in their manufacturing process. The Hybridoma technology is the most common method for developing antibodies is said to cost around $8,000-$12,000 for just one monoclonal antibody. Governments all around the world are trying to fight cancer through several initiatives that they have begun for spreading awareness on cancer prevention. National Colorectal Cancer Action Campaign for colorectal campaign, Inside Knowledge Campaign for gynecologic cancer, Youth Risk Behavior Surveillance System and National Health Interview Survey for skin cancer, and many others.

North America holds a major share of Oncology Market owing to an increase in patient assistance Programs (PAPs), increase in government initiatives and rising prevalence of cancer.  Also factors such as increase in public-private funding, spending in healthcare and government spending on cancer drugs are supporting the growth in North America. The healthcare spending in Canada was $264 billion or $7,068 per person which was 11.5 percent of Canada's gross domestic product (GDP). To counter the cancer cases in children Mexico initiated a funding channel known as Fund for Protection against Catastrophic Expenditures (FPGC). FPGC funds for pediatric cancer increased from 2008 to 2011 to reach $36 million and then declined to $13.6 million in 2018, along with the number of covered cases of cancer in Mexico. In Asia Pacific countries like India, Taiwan, Malaysia, and China have the high number of cases and are the biggest markets for Oncology.  In 2020, 4SC AG entered into a supply agreement with Merck KGaA, Germany, and Pfizer Inc., for 4SC-sponsored clinical development of avelumab (BAVENCIO®), an anti-PD-L1 antibody, for Merkel cell carcinoma (MCC).
