Colorectal cancer (CRC) occurs in the large intestine or large bowel. It is the third most common cancer globally and is one of the most common causes of cancer deaths in the world. Early stage CRC is commonly treated with surgery, while metastatic colorectal cancer (mCRC) treatment is dominated by fluorouracil chemotherapy regimens in combination with angiogenesis inhibitors, primarily Roche's Avastin, and epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) inhibitors.
GlobalData valued the CRC market at $6.4B in 2018. This market is defined as sales of generic chemotherapy and major branded drugs commonly prescribed for CRC patients across the 8MM. GlobalData expects the market to increase to $8.1B in 2028 at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 2.4%. This global growth is driven by the anticipated approval and launch of 9 pipeline therapies and label expansion of other agents, but will likely be tempered by marked generic erosion of the majority of the currently marketed branded therapies available in 2018.
- The main drivers of growth include the anticipated approval and launch of 9 pipeline therapies, in addition to label expansions of currently marketed therapies across the 8MM during the forecast period.
- The main barriers to growth in the 8MM include the patent expiry of major brands and the high price of premium priced therapeutics entering the market.
- The rapidly growing aging population will lead to an increase in the CRC incident case in the markets covered in this report. Overall, the diagnosed incident cases of CRC across the 8MM are expected to increase by an Annual Growth Rate (AGR) of 1.9% from 2018-2028.
- GlobalData found that there is a large unmet need for the identification of new targets and biomarkers to guarantee the optimal integration of current and future therapies into the treatment paradigm and to improve patient outcomes.
