The Endocrine Therapy Drugs (Etds) Market Propelled By Increasing Prevalence Of Hormone-Sensitive Cancers


Market Overview: The endocrine therapy drugs market comprises drugs that are used in the treatment of hormone-sensitive cancers such as breast, ovarian and prostate cancers. These drugs include selective estrogen receptor modulators (SERMs), aromatase inhibitors, gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH) agonists and antagonists. They work by blocking the growth-promoting effects of hormones like estrogen and progesterone on hormone-receptor-positive cancers. With rising prevalence of breast, ovarian and prostate cancers globally, the demand for safer and effective endocrine therapy drugs is increasing.

The global Endocrine Therapy Drugs (ETDs) Market is estimated to be valued at US$ 30434.86 Mn in 2023 and is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 5.1% over the forecast period 2023-2030, as highlighted in a new report published by Coherent Market Insights.

Market Key Trends:

Increasing Prevalence of Hormone-sensitive Cancers
The key driver behind the growth of the global endocrine therapy drugs market is the significant rise in the incidence of hormone-sensitive cancers globally. For instance, according to GLOBOCAN 2020, breast cancer is the most common cancer in women with an estimated 2.3 million new cases diagnosed in 2020. Moreover, prostate cancer incidence is also increasing globally with 1.4 million new cases reported in 2020. The rising prevalence of such hormone-dependent cancers is expected to drive the demand for endocrine therapy drugs during the forecast period.
SWOT Analysis
Strength: ETDs have demonstrated effectiveness in treating hormone-receptor positive cancers like breast cancer and prostate cancer. They can stop or slow the growth of hormone-dependent tumors.
Weakness: Side effects of ETDs like joint pain, hot flashes, low libido, weight gain, fatigue etc. can impact patient adherence and compliance. Different types of ETDs also have specific side effect profiles.
Opportunity: Rising incidence of hormone-receptor positive cancers and growing geriatric population presents an opportunity for increased usage of ETDs. Ongoing development of new delivery systems can help improve side effect profiles.
Threats: Patent expiry of blockbuster drugs may lead to increased competition from generic versions. Development of new anti-cancer therapies targeting alternative pathways can pose a treatment substitution threat.

Key Takeaways
The global endocrine therapy drugs (ETDs) market growth is expected to witness high  over the forecast period of 2023 to 2030.
