Cancer and Allied Advancements in Chemotherapy – Straits Research

According to a study by the Shenzhen Institutes of Advanced Technology, China, based on computer simulation and lab experiments, chemotherapy can potentially be used to inhibit the replication of the novel coronavirus and treat it. It is expected to raise the demand for chemotherapy drugs.

New York, US, Sept. 16, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The chemotherapy market is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 10.4% in the forecast period from 2020 to 2029.

Further, it stated that nearly 9.6 million deaths, i.e., 1 in 6 deaths, were reported due to cancer in 2018. Moreover, growing investment in the research and development of chemotherapy drugs and a surge in awareness towards early cancer diagnosis are driving the global market.

COVID-19: Delayed Chemotherapy and Post-Pandemic Transitions

The chemotherapy market witnessed a loss of business till late December 2020 due to the preventive measures taken during the COVID-19 pandemic. Despite the constant demand for medicines, many pharmaceutical companies experienced challenges in resuming their manufacturing capacity, and industry participants are enduring the effects of shortages in distribution and supply networks.

Many regulatory authorities globally have identified that cancer patients are at higher risk of COVID-19 infection than others. As a result, diagnostic examinations and surgical procedures are limited or postponed, which is liable to cause market disruptions in the chemotherapy market. However, the pandemic has transformed the oncology industry by replacing traditional outpatient practices with digital solutions and employing network teaching. It has also encouraged market players to devise new technologies to sustain themselves in the competitive market.
