Genitourinary cancers treatment is a specialised branch of oncology that deals with the urinary and the reproductive systems.
Genitourinary Cancers Treatment Market: Drivers and Restraints
Increase in the incidence of genitourinary cancers is a prime driver of the genitourinary cancers treatment market. According to the National Cancer Institute, prostate cancer accounted for 164,690 new cases in 2018, thus accounting for 9.5% of all new cancer cases. The American Cancer Society estimates that about 63,340 new cases of kidney cancer are likely to occur in the U.S. in 2018. Moreover, approximately 81,190 new cases of bladder cancer are likely to occur in the U.S. in 2018. The above-mentioned figures indicate that there is significant growth potential for the genitourinary cancers treatment market.
Furthermore, growth in the geriatric population suffering from the risk factors associated with genitourinary cancers is another factor driving the market. The average age of the diagnosis of most genitourinary cancers is 60 years, and the disease rarely occurs before the age of 40. Growth in the geriatric population provides a strong impetus for the growth of the genitourinary cancers treatment market. The number of people across the world aged 60 years and above is expected to increase from 900 million to 2 billion between 2015 and 2050, which represents a growth from 12% to 22% of the total global population, according to a recent World Health Organization report.
Improving survival rates owing to the advent of newer third-generation drugs is also another factor boosting the demand for genitourinary cancers treatment. Other risk factors include substance abuse, pollution and exposure to carcinogens. The growing per-capita income and healthcare expenditure is another driver of the genitourinary cancers treatment market.
On the other hand, factors, such as the high cost of the treatment, lack of awareness and poor screening rates in developing countries, are expected to hamper the growth of the genitourinary treatment market. However, the low inelasticity of demand is expected to drive the adoption of genitourinary cancers treatment.
