Imatinib is a chemotherapy drug that acts by reducing or preventing the progression of cancer cells. This drug is used for the treatment of certain cancers such as chronic myeloid leukemia, acute lymphoblastic leukemia, gastrointestinal tumors, certain skin tumors (dermatofibrosarcoma protuberans), and myelodysplastic/myeloproliferative diseases.
Growth in prevalence of cancer, increase in demand for target drug therapy, and patent expiry of imatinib drug are expected to drive the imatinib drug market. According to the National Cancer Institute, in June 2017, it was estimated that there will be around 62,130 and 24,500 people with new cases and death due to leukemia, respectively, in the U.S.
Furthermore, rise in healthcare expenditure and increase in awareness of cancer by government and private organizations are anticipated to boost the market growth. In addition, R&D activities related to imatinib are anticipated to present new opportunities during the forecast period. However, high cost of imatinib; adverse effects; presence of substitutes, such as sprycel, tarceva, and tasigna; and stringent government regulations may hinder the market growth.
The imatinib drug market is segmented on the basis of application, drug formulation, and geography. Based on application, it is divided into aggressive systemic mastocytosis (ASM), chronic eosinophilic leukemia (CEL), dermatofibrosarcoma protuberans (DFSP), gastrointestinal stromal tumors (GIST), hyper-eosinophilic syndrome (HES), myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS), myeloproliferative diseases (MPD), Philadelphia chromosome-positive acute lymphoblastic leukemia (Ph+ ALL), and Philadelphia chromosome-positive chronic myeloid leukemia (Ph+ CML). Based on the drug formulation, the market is bifurcated into tablets and capsules. Geographically, it is analyzed across North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and LAMEA.
