Solid tumors are considered as the abnormal mass of tissue without containing cysts or liquid. Solid tumors are composed of heterogeneous populations of normal and cancerous cells. Solid tumors are classified into two types in medical terms, like benign (non-cancerous) and malignant (cancerous) in nature. Solid tumors mainly comprise of lymphomas, carcinomas, sarcomas, and melanomas; whereas, all forms of leukemias usually do not cause solid tumor formation. Solid tumor drugs are pharmaceuticals that are specifically used to treat various cancers, including breast cancer, lung cancer, prostate cancer, cervical cancer, colorectal cancer, and others. Most of the solid tumors are treated by radiotherapy, chemotherapy and/or surgery. Chemotherapy is often applied along with other modes of solid tumor treatment of radiation and/or surgery.
In 2018, the global Solid Tumor Testing market size was US$ XX million, and it is expected to reach US$ XX million by the end of 2025, with a CAGR of xx% during 2019-2025. The growing incidence of cancer is going to drive the solid tumor market. The other factors including the increasing demand for POC testing, new product approvals in pancreatic, ovarian, and prostate cancers, and the rise in molecular testing are driving the solid tumor market. In addition, some other factors fuelling the growth of solid tumors market include unmet demand for cancer treatment and the rise in investment in the research and development of cancer drugs.
The United States patent for one of the basic compound of Gleevec was expired in July 2015 that resulted in one of Sun Pharmaceutical Industries subsidiaries allowed to sell a generic version of the drug in America from February 2016. Already Gleevec has been launched in the United States, while the European launch was in December 2016. These generic medicines are thus hindering the growth of the solid tumor market. The other factors including expensive procedures and regulatory complications, the high cost of cancer therapy, and growing drug patent cliff are also hindering the growth of the market.
Further, the emerging trend of biosimilars contributes to the growth of solid tumors market due to the presence of low cost and possessing similarity to the originator compound. For example, some of the biologics available for solid tumors treatment are Herceptin, Avastin, MabThera, and Erbitux. The advantages of these biosimilars to overcome the limitations of generic drugs in the treatments is expected to propel the growth of solid tumors market.
