Global Cancer Cachexia Market to Reach US$2.8 Billion by the Year 2026

Global market for Cancer Cachexia estimated at US$2.1 Billion in the year 2020, is projected to reach a revised size of US$2.8 Billion by 2026, growing at a CAGR of 4.6% over the analysis period.

Progestogens, one of the segments analyzed in the report, is projected to grow at a 4.7% CAGR to reach US$1.1 Billion by the end of the analysis period. After a thorough analysis of the business implications of the pandemic and its induced economic crisis, growth in the Corticosteroids segment is readjusted to a revised 4.1% CAGR for the next 7-year period.

This segment currently accounts for a 24.7% share of the global Cancer Cachexia market. Progestogens represent the largest segment, due to the low cost, safety and effectiveness. Progestogens improve appetite and aid in weight gain. Corticosteroids are generally used by medical professionals for stimulating appetite. Researchers have investigated oral dexamethasone in randomized trials involving cancer patients. These trials indicated the potential of the drug to improve appetite and non-fluid weight gain.

Growth in the global market is set to be driven by rising incidence of cancer globally, and increasing R&D funding to develop novel and sophisticated treatment options with certain mode of action. The market growth is favored by increasing attention on palliative cancer care along with rising incidence of cancer.

Treatment modalities for cancer cachexia include appetite stimulants and drugs. There are several pipeline drugs in the late stages of clinical trials, for cancer cachexia treatment, which are anticipated to be commercialized over the coming two to three years. This is also expected to drive market growth.

Combination Therapies Segment to Reach $639.7 Million by 2026

Recent therapy developments in the treatment of cancer cachexia have been combination therapies, supplemented with exercise routines and modification in diets. Pharmaceutical agents like medroxyprogesterone and megestrol among others are being used along with exercise and diet for improving survival rates and quality for life.

In the global Combination Therapies segment, USA, Canada, Japan, China and Europe will drive the 5.6% CAGR estimated for this segment. These regional markets accounting for a combined market size of US$396.7 Million in the year 2020 will reach a projected size of US$576.6 Million by the close of the analysis period.

The U.S. Market is Estimated at $879.7 Million in 2021, While China is Forecast to Reach $232.6 Million by 2026

The Cancer Cachexia market in the U.S. is estimated at US$879.7 Million in the year 2021. The country currently accounts for a 40.07% share in the global market. China, the world's second largest economy, is forecast to reach an estimated market size of US$232.6 Million in the year 2026 trailing a CAGR of 6.5% through the analysis period.
