Rising alcohol and tobacco consumption have led to rise in global oncology burden. Nearly 22% cancer related deaths are due to tobacco use. As per the World Cancer Report, prevalence of cancer is estimated to increase by approximately 50%, reaching over 15 million new cancer cases in 2020. Thus, the rising burden of oncology will accelerate the adoption rate of oncology treatment and diagnosis. Also, the product pipeline of industry players operating in the oncology market is strong, that will provide a significant impetus to the industry.

The COVID-19 pandemic has impacted every aspect of oncology care and research, as several countries across the globe have classified screening and oncology care services as a low-priority services. Moreover, in patients with cancer, COVID-19 may cause severe infections, as many patients have a weakened immune system either because of the cancer itself or the oncology therapies used to treat. Therefore, cancer patient may suffer from low immunity to fight off infection by the novel coronavirus.

Technological advancements in various tests to detect tumor will spur the oncology market expansion

Detection of minute changes in cell using hi-tech computer system is necessary for identifying presence of tumor in the body. Computer system including Omnyx Precision Solution helps pathologists to accurately detect tumor. Thus, technological advancements and automation have made tests more accurate and easier to perform.

Moreover, growth of home healthcare sector has stimulated demand for home based diagnostic tests. Liquid based cytology (LBC) tests were developed to overcome difficulties in conventional pap test for cervical cancer screening. LBC reduces specimen inadequacy by around 80%, thus allowing further applications in chlamydia, HPV, and gonorrhoea testing.

Side effects associated with the cancer treatment may potentially restrain the market growth

Side effects associated with oncology treatment including chemotherapy may hinder the demand of global oncology market. Patient’s with chemotherapy may suffer from long-term damage to the heart, lungs, kidneys, or reproductive organs. This can occur after the treatment by damaging the healthy cells. Moreover, certain types of chemotherapy drugs may cause delayed side effects. Few of the common side effects include hair loss, fatigue, anaemia, infections, and easy bruising & bleeding, among others. Furthermore, prominent market players are trying to develop drugs, but side effects may adversely affect their adoption rate.

Technological advancements in cancer diagnostics will accelerate adoption rate of cancer diagnostic tools

The cancer diagnostic segment accounted for oncology market share of 43.4% in 2019 due to rising incidence of cancer coupled with growing geriatric population. Moreover, technological advancements in cancer diagnostics will further accelerate adoption rate of cancer diagnostic tools. Furthermore, detecting cancer merely with physical exams or biomarker tests is an onerous task and imaging test is must for conformation. Thus, the demand for imaging modalities is rapidly increasing with the increasing cancer prevalence. To meet the demand, new players are entering in cancer imaging market intensifying the existing competition.

Breast cancer segment held around 19.9% market share in 2019. The major causes of increase in breast cancer incidence and prevalence rate are obesity, hormone imbalance, age-related risks and replacement therapy. Moreover, the incidence of breast cancer in women aged between 50 to 69 years is rising rapidly. For instance, according to the Canadian Breast Cancer Network, nearly 17,400 new cases of patients aged between 50-69 years had been diagnosed in Canada in 2018. This has led to an increase in adoption of oncology diagnosis and treatment. Furthermore, various government initiatives such as BreastScreen Aotearoa in New Zealand that provide free tests to women as well as technological advancements in screening procedures will augment the market share.

Availability of various technologically advanced devices and increasing hospital admission

Hospital segment value in the oncology market was over USD 161.8 billion in 2019 and is expected to show significant growth of 10.7% during the forecast timeframe. High adoption rates for technologically advanced biopsy and other devices utilized in diagnosis of cancer will increase the number of diagnosis carried out in hospital settings. Furthermore, as per the National Health Expenditures report 2019, out of the total healthcare expenditures, 32% accounts to hospital care and majority of the admissions to hospital are done for oncology treatments. Thus, this has increased the admissions and adoption of oncology treatment in hospital setting.
