Japan Oncology Drugs Market Outlook - 2026

The Japan oncology drugs market size was accounted for $9,405 million in 2018, and is expected to reach $14,109 million by 2026, registering a CAGR of 5.2% from 2019 to 2026. 

Cancer is a chronic medical condition that involves an abnormal growth of cells. The abnormal growth of cells results in the formation of a tumor. Furthermore, these abnormal tumor cells have the tendency to spread to other local tissues through blood and lymphatic system. Different types of cancers such as colorectal, stomach cancer and others are predominant among the Japanese populace. Treatment of cancer depends upon the stages of the disease progression. Chemotherapy is majorly used in the earlier stages whereas other therapy options such as targeted therapy drugs, immunological therapy drugs are used in late stage.
