According to the World Cancer Research Fund International, kidney cancer is the twelfth most common cancer in the world. Also known as Renal Cell Carcinoma (RCC), it is associated with smoking, obesity, and reduced physical activity. The report mentions that the rise in the reported cases of kidney cancer worldwide along with rising geriatric population will fuel the growth of the global kidney cancer drugs market. The report cites that the growth of the global kidney cancer drugs market will get fuelled by the approval and commercialization of novel molecules in treating kidney cancer. However, the high cost of the drugs will deter the growth of the global kidney cancer drugs market. The report predicts that the increasing preference of generic drug variants will negatively impact the global kidney cancer drugs market.
The report studies the global kidney cancer drugs market depending upon the major branded drug used by the patients.
