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 relatively low-priority services. For instance, the government of Scotland temporarily suspended screening programs for cervical, bowel and breast cancers in light of increasing cases of COVID-19 pandemic.

Moreover, several local- and national-level restrictions implemented by public and private authorities on the movement of people and goods is noted to significantly disrupt the pharmaceutical products and ingredients supply chain, thereby hampering the industry growth. Additionally, temporary closure of various academic institutes and challenges in providing post-sales services owing to the pandemic, resulted in the reduced supply of oncology product to end users, thereby hindering with the market expansion.

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

Technological advancements and automation have enhanced the accuracy levels of cancer tests and also made them user friendly, thereby fostering the industry expansion. For instance, liquid-based cytology (LBC) tests were developed to overcome difficulties in conventional pap test for cervical cancer screening. Liquid based cytology (LBC) test 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 oncology market value

Side effects associated with oncology treatment such as chemotherapy can potentially hinder the growth of global industry. Patients undergoing 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, thus limiting the industry progression. 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, thereby hampering the overall market demand.

Technological advancements in cancer diagnostics to further accelerate adoption rate of cancer diagnostic tools

The cancer diagnostic segment dominated more than 46.6% of the market share in 2021 led by the rising incidence of cancer coupled with technological advancements. The development of an intelligent surgical knife fulfils the growing demand for minimal invasive technologies. Furthermore, detecting cancer merely with physical exams or biomarker tests is noted to be an onerous task while imaging test is must for conformation.

Increasing prevalence of breast cancer will influence the segment growth

Breast cancer segment valued at USD 54.06 billion in 2021 due to the rising obesity, hormonal imbalance, age-related risks and replacement therapy in women, the prevalence of breast cancer increases. Additionally, various government initiatives such as BreastScreen Aotearoa in New Zealand providing free tests to women will further augment the industry value over the forthcoming years.

Availability of various technologically advanced devices and growing hospital admission to positively impact the segment expansion

Hospital segment is expected to register 10.4% growth rate through 2028. High acceptance rates for technologically advanced biopsy and other devices utilized in diagnosis of cancer will increase the number of diagnosis carried out in hospitals, thereby stimulating the industry demand. In addition, the increasing presence of electrosurgical procedures and related minimally invasive surgeries has increased the admissions and adoption of oncology treatment in hospital setting, thereby enhancing the segment progression.
