Segment Analysis

Glioblastoma multiforme is spearheading the clinical application segment for temozolomide market on account of the inherent resistance to conventional therapy and abnormal migration of malignant astrocytes in the adjacent brain tissues due to the increased intracranial hypertension. It accounts for 52% of all primary brain tumors. Anaplastic astrocytoma is considered a rare malignant brain tumor that arises from the astrocytes which is a supportive cell of the nervous system. According to the latest information provided by the American Cancer Society (ACS), anaplastic astrocytoma accounts for 1% to 2% of the primary brain tumors worldwide. There are different subtypes of anaplastic astrocytoma which are recognized by the abnormal genetic signatures such as IDH mutants and IDH wildtype.

Hospital pharmacy is currently leading the distribution channel segment for the temozolomide market. The drug-related severe adverse events associated with temozolomide such as constipation, nausea, vomiting, skin rash, etc. make it mandatory for precise drug compounding under the medical supervision of a hospital pharmacist. Retail pharmacy is expected to register exemplary market growth in the near future on account of the flourishing generic drugs market and its ability to cater to the medicinal requirements of households residing in remote locations.

North America is presently representing the largest market share in the geography segment for the temozolomide market. The rising prevalence of brain cancer primarily drives market growth in the region. As per the latest research citings presented by the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO), in 2020 approximately 23,890 adults in the United States were suffering from diagnosed with cancerous tumors of the brain and spinal cord. Furthermore. The nurturing regulatory environment provided by the USFDA for the sale and distribution of temozolomide products further accentuates the market growth in the region. Europe is considered as the second-largest regional segment for temozolomide market on account of the affordable reimbursement scenario for temozolomide drug formulations in the region. Additionally, the effective implementation of the treatment guidelines postulated by the European Society of Molecular Oncology (ESMO), pertaining to the management and treatment of brain cancer propels the market growth in the region. The Asia Pacific is anticipated as the fastest growing regional segment for the temozolomide market. Developing healthcare infrastructure and lucrative market opportunities for western giants to establish subsidiaries and retail outlets together determine the temozolomide market growth.
