The global Oxaliplatin market size was valued US$ XX billion in 2022 and is estimated to reach US$ XX billion by 2029, growing at a CAGR of XX % during the forecast period (2022-2029).
Oxaliplatin is an anti-cancer medication indicated to treat colorectal cancer. It is a platinum-based drug belonging to the same family as that of cisplatin and carboplatin. Oxaliplatin acts by interfering with the development of DNA in a cell, thereby stopping it from dividing into new cells and kills it.
The oxaliplatin market growth is driven by the growing incidence of Colorectal cancers, and changing lifestyle, increasing geriatric population and extensive research in field of oncology are the major factors that are anticipated to boost the global oxaliplatin market during the forecast period.
The number of colorectal cancer cases worldwide has been increasing. As per the American Cancer Society (ACS) estimates, there will be around 101,420 new colon cancer cases, and around 44,180 new cases of rectal cancer are registered in the USA in 2019. As per the National Cancer Institute data, nearly 1,735,350 new cases of cancer were diagnosed in the U.K in 2018. The diagnosed incident colorectal cancer cases are expected to increase by 27.3% to 672,400 cases by 2037. This increase can be attributed to a low-fiber diet, obesity, alcohol, and tobacco consumption. The increase in the number of colorectal cases will add to the overall global oxaliplatin market.
Increased usage of biologics and targeted therapies is likely to hamper the market growth. Biologic therapy helps the body's immune system fight against cancer rather than chemical drugs, which reduces the body's immune power. Targeted therapies block the growth and spreading of colorectal cancer even in stage IV, where chemical drugs are ineffective. For instance, the FDA has approved some targeted therapies to treat colorectal cancer, including bevacizumab, cetuximab, and panitumumab. The advantages of biologics drugs and targeted therapies over conventional chemical drugs might negatively influence the market.
Due to the covid-19 pandemic outbreak, the market for global oxaliplatin market was seen to be down, due to the barriers in production and sales segments. Since the outbreak led to the shutdown of all manufacturing firms except for masks, sanitizers and ventilators. Hence, the drugs were manufactured less compared to previous years, during the outbreak.
Lyophilization is a freeze-drying process, which is performed to extend the shelf life of a product. The oxaliplatin lyophilized powder injection is prepared using a specific lyophilization process to increase the stability of the drug, reduce the risk of side effects, and ensure a high degree of clinical usage. However, it is slightly expensive than the aqueous solution. The global average selling price of 100 mg intravenous injection is around USD 84 - USD 500. Sanofi offers ELOXATIN in a lyophilized powder form.
In patients with stage III colon cancer, adjuvant chemotherapy with fluoropyrimidine combined with oxaliplatin (FOLFOX and XELOX) are considered the standard treatment and reduces the risk of recurrence and mortality, with a treatment duration that may be shortened from 6 to 3 months in certain situations allowing to limit toxicities, especially cumulative sensitive neuropathy.
Colorectal cancer is the second leading cause of cancer deaths in the U.S. As per the data by the National Cancer Institute, nearly 1,735,350 new cases of cancer were diagnosed in the U.K. and 609,640 people were succumbed to the disease in 2018. According to the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO), in 2019, nearly 45,600 adults in the U.S. were diagnosed with colorectal cancer.
The hospital pharmacies held the largest share in the global oxaliplatin market. This is mainly owing to increasing number of patients suffering from colorectal cancers which are treated in hospitals equipped with advanced infrastructure and adequate facilities. Moreover, Increasing number of oncologists and healthcare professionals, specializing in the diagnosis of cancer at an early stage and providing proper treatment is also contributing to the growth of this segment.Also the medications can only be administrated by intravenously under supervision of medical practioners at these locations.
North America held a major share of the global oxaliplatin market and is expected to continue its dominance during the forecast period. In North America, the oxaliplatin market is projected to be driven by an increase in colorectal cancer cases and raising awareness of various treatment modalities for cancer. As per the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services in U.S., colorectal cancer represented 8.3% of all new cancer cases in 2019. According to the American Cancer Society, Inc. (ACS), in 2020, nearly 104,610 new colon and 43,340 cases of rectal cancer are expected to be diagnosed in the U.S., with nearly 53,200 deaths from colorectal cancer.
The global oxaliplatin market is highly competitive with presence of global companies.
