Market Research Reports, Inc. has announced the addition of “GLOBAL & USA CANCER IMMUNOTHERAPY MARKET ANALYSIS TO 2020: Antibody Drug Conjugates (ADCs), Bispecific Monoclonal Antibodies, Cancer Vaccines, Cytokines, Interferons, Chimeric Antigen Receptor (CAR) T-Cell Therapy, PD-1/PD-L1 inhibitors, Dendritic Cells” research report to their website


Lewes, DE -- (SBWIRE) -- 04/01/2015 -- The new report named Global & USA Cancer Immunotherapy Market Analysis to 2020" reveals that the cancer immunotherapy space will bea significant revenue generator (excess of $80 billion) for the biopharmaceutical industry by 2020. The market has been supported by the approval of Bristol-Myers' Yervoy drug for melanoma (2011) and Dendreon'sProvenge(2010) for prostate cancer. Over the next decade, immunotherapies will be the backbone of cancer treatments in 60% of cancer types. It is forecast that by 2020, Avastin, Nivolumab, Revlimid, Rituxan and Xtandi will be the top five cancer drugs. A single drug, Bristol-Myers Squibb's Yervoy, for example has earned revenues of about $960 million in 2013 and it is expected to have a market value of $1,775.2 million in 2020. Industry Experts have predicted that Keytruda and Opdivo will generate sales revenues of $2.9 billion and $4.3 billion respectively in 2019.

"An unmet need in the cancer therapy market has paved the way for immunotherapies and has increased patient survival rates significantly" indicates research analyst of this report, "Today significant therapeutic interest into ADC's, checkpoint inhibitors, cancer vaccines and anti-PD-1/PD-L1 agents are taking the market by storm, and we forecast vertical growth in this area within the next decade'. Therefore, it is no wonder that in 2013, most science journals hailed cancer immunotherapy as the breakthrough treatment of the year.

The interest on ADCs can be seen with the recent approvals of Adcetris (brentuximabvedotin) and Kadcyla (ado-trastuzumab emtansine). Currently, More than 15 companies are developing 30 different ADCs targeting both hematologic malignancies and solid tumors. ADCs represent a novel class of therapeutic agents, gaining increasing attention from both large and small pharmaceutical companies. As the ADCs carry a chemotherapy drug, they are believed to be more efficient and effective in the treatment of a disease. Due to shrinking pipelines and increasing pressure from patent expirations, big pharmaco' recognized the vaccine market as a potential resource for investors. Cancer vaccines have been found to earn a higher profit than the generic drugs, owing to the nature of the disease and the urgency in the demand for these vaccines. The global market for cancer vaccines was worth about $4.4 billion and it is likely to reach $8.4 billion in 2020.

Immunotherapy is a proven powerful tool, either as a monotherapy or as a combination therapy with chemotherapy or radiation. For patients with metastatic skin cancer or kidney cancer, immunotherapy has been found to be more effective than the conventional options, with the possibility of even a complete cure. Today, cancer immunotherapy drugs have captured nearly 50% of the overall oncology drugs market, generating about $41.0 billion in 2014 alone.
