Multiple Myeloma Market Outlook, 2031

The global multiple myeloma market size was valued at $19,666.74 million in 2021, and is projected to reach $53,521.76 million by 2031, registering a CAGR of 10.5% from 2021 to 2031. Rise in prevalence of multiple myeloma is attributed to increase in demand for medications, immunotherapy, radiation therapy, stem cell transplantation procedure, and plasmapheresis. According to the International Agency for Research on Cancer, around 1,76,404 cases of multiple myeloma were reported over the globe in 2020. In addition, in 2023, the American Cancer Society estimated that around 35,730 new cases of multiple myeloma will be diagnosed in the U.S. Thus, rise in prevalence of multiple myeloma over the globe is expected to boost the market growth.

Multiple Myeloma Market

Multiple myeloma develops in white blood cell known as a plasma cell. Healthy plasma cells produce antibodies that can identify and destroy microorganisms, aiding in the battle against infections. In multiple myeloma, cancerous plasma cells accumulate in the bone marrow and eliminate good blood cells. It causes the production of abnormal proteins, called paraproteins, which can build up in the body and damage organs and tissues. Anemia, frequent infections, bone discomfort, and kidney issues are the associated issues with multiple myeloma. Treatment options include stem cell transplantation, radiation treatment, chemotherapy, and targeted therapy. 

Market Dynamics

Growth of the global multiple myeloma market share is majorly driven by increase in the prevalence of multiple myeloma, rise in number of market players who manufacture multiple myeloma drugs, and increase in number product launches for multiple myeloma drugs. Multiple myeloma, also known as Kahler’s disease, is a type of blood cancer. A type of white blood cell called a plasma cell makes antibodies that fight infections in the body. In the case of multiple myeloma, these cells multiply the wrong way. They let too much protein into the bones and blood. It builds up throughout the body and damages the organs.

Rise in initiatives taken by government and nonprofit organizations for the treatment of blood cancer and multiple myeloma is anticipated to fuel the growth of multiple myeloma market opportunity. For instance, in February 2023, the Multiple Myeloma Research Foundation (MMRF) and the Lazarex Cancer Foundation, a non-profit organization focused on improving patient access to cancer clinical trials, announced partnership to support more equitable access to clinical trials for multiple myeloma cancer patients. Thus, this factor is anticipated to boost the demand for multiple myeloma drugs or therapies, thus driving the market growth.

In addition, in March 2022, the Myeloma Investment Fund (MIF), the Multiple Myeloma Research Foundation’s (MMRF) venture philanthropy subsidiary, announced an investment in Triumvira Immunologics (Triumvira), an Austin, TX-based clinical-stage biotech developing novel, targeted autologous and allogeneic T cell immunotherapies that co-opt the natural biology of T cells to treat solid tumors and blood cancers.

Increase in number of market players who manufacture drugs for multiple myeloma is expected to boost the multiple myeloma market growth. For instance, Bristol Myers Squibb, Amgen Inc., AbbVie, Sanofi, ONO Pharmaceutical Co., Ltd., Johnson & Johnson, and Takeda Pharmaceutical Company Ltd. are some major players who manufacture multiple myeloma drugs. In addition, rise in the provision of effective multiple myeloma drugs by these players is attributed to boost the growth of market. For instance, Bristol Myers Squibb, a pharmaceutical company, provides Abecma, a (CAR) T cell immunotherapy drugs and Empliciti (elotuzumab), a monoclonal antibody for treatment of multiple myeloma.

Moreover, increase in the revenue of market players due to rise in sale of multiple myeloma drugs is anticipated to boost the growth of market. For instance, Amgen Inc., a pharmaceutical company, provides KYPROLIS, a protease inhibitor drug which generates $1,108 million in 2021 and $1,247 million in 2022.

On the other hand, high cost of multiple myeloma treatments such as medications, immunotherapy, radiation therapy, plasmapheresis, and stem cell transplantation is expected to hinder the growth of market. For instance, radiation therapy costs around $10,000–20,000, thus making it unaffordable. Moreover, protease inhibitors such as Kyprolis, Velcade, and Ninlaro are expensive, which restrains the growth of market.   .

In addition, side effects associated with multiple myeloma drugs such as Kyprolis, Abecma, Velcade, and Ninlaro hamper the growth of the global market. For instance, common side effects of Kyprolis includes fatigue, low blood cell count & blood platelet levels, shortness of breath, diarrhea, constipation, nausea, fever, swelling of the extremities, upper respiratory tract infection, runny or stuffy nose, bronchitis, pneumonia, low blood potassium, low blood calcium, high blood sugar, muscle spasms, numbness & tingling in the extremities, and high blood pressure. In addition, side effects of radiation therapy include fatigue, skin irritation, nausea, diarrhea, hair loss in the treatment area, loss of appetite, infertility, increased risk of infection, increased risk of secondary cancer, and damage to organs near the treatment area.

COVID-19 has had a significant impact on the multiple myeloma market. A number of clinical trials have been disrupted due to the pandemic and social distancing regulations. Moreover, shortage of healthcare workers, financial constraints, and lockdowns have led to an increase in the number of patients who are unable to access timely treatments.

In addition, the number of patients seeking treatment for multiple myeloma has decreased, leading to a decrease in the number of new patients entering clinical trials. Furthermore, the pandemic has resulted in a decrease in the availability of drugs for treating multiple myeloma, due to disrupted supply chain. The pandemic further caused a slowdown in the development of new treatments and therapies for multiple myeloma, as R&D activities were severely impacted. In addition, according to the Blood Cancer Journal, in December 2021, it was reported that the number of new diagnoses of multiple myeloma was reduced in 2020 compared to 2019 and the survival of newly diagnosed multiple myeloma cases decreased simultaneously. Multiple myeloma patients showed higher risk of COVID-19 infection and a higher mortality rate in 2020.
