How Did the COVID-19 Pandemic Influence Doxorubicin Sales?
In 2020, the sudden emergence of coronavirus infections spread through the world like rapid wildfire and created a pandemic situation that the world was not equipped to grapple with. In an attempt to contain the spread of infections multiple nations across the world implemented strict lockdowns that restricted outdoor activity and had a negative impact on the world economy.
These restrictions had a negative impact on the global doxorubicin market growth potential. The shift of focus in the healthcare industry led to a drop in sales of doxorubicin in this period. Other factors such as lack of healthcare resources to treat other diseases and restricted visits to healthcare institutions also led to a downfall in the consumption of doxorubicin.
Shipments of doxorubicin are anticipated to see a steady rise in the post-pandemic era as restrictions are lifted and the world returns to normal. Increasing incidence of cancer and rising demand for cancer medications will further boost market potential over the coming years.
