Rapidly Increasing Hematological Cancer Prevalence Among The Population Pool Is Likely To Propel Hematological Cancers Market
Hematological cancer, commonly known as hematological malignancy, is a class of cancer that affects the lymph nodes, blood, and bone marrow. It includes numerous forms such as lymphoma, leukemia, and myeloma. Leukemia is a malignancy in which abnormal white blood cells are formed in the bone marrow. Lymphoma is a blood cancer that develops in the lymphatic system. Myeloma is a cancer associated with the plasma of the white blood cells. Hematological cancer is caused due to long exposure to toxic substances such as chemical agents and ionized radiation, genetic predisposition, viral infections, complex patient profiles, improper assessment, and risks associated with other diseases with decreased immunity.
Read Report Overview:
Rapidly increasing hematological cancer prevalence among the population pool, large investment by key market players, and a number of premium drugs commercially available are the factors driving the global hematological cancers market. According to the National Cancer Institute, globally, hematological cancer is the fifth most commonly occurring cancer and it is the second major cause of death in the U.S. Rich pipeline of products for leukemia is also likely to propel the market post commercialization. Increasing incidence of hematological cancers is expected to boost the global market in the next few years. However, low prevalence rate of myeloma is expected to hamper the growth of the global hematological cancers market during the forecast period.
The hematological cancers market has been segmented based on treatment, disease indication, and region. In terms of treatment, the hematological cancers market has been categorized into stem cell transplantation, pharmacological therapies, radiation, and surgery therapy. In terms of disease indication, the market has been segmented into leukemia, lymphoma, and myeloma. Prevalence of leukemia is higher than that of lymphoma and myeloma. Moreover, a number of blockbuster, biologically effective drugs are available for the treatment of leukemia. Hence, end-users prefer biological, blockbuster products as compared to chemotherapy drugs.
