An introduction to the report

All the information pertaining to the market of this rare form of cancer is provided in our recently published report “Malignant Mesothelioma Market: Global Industry Analysis (2012-2016) and Forecast (2017-2025).” Caused due to the exposure to toxic asbestos, the occurrence of this cancer is higher in countries such as Russia and China. These two countries are pegged to represent the most lucrative markets, owing to the relatively high production of asbestos in these countries. Besides, a high consumption of asbestos in the APAC region is expected to create a sizeable opportunity for key players in this market. Our analysts have observed that the rapid substitution through generics to ease availability and affordability is the key focus area in the global malignant mesothelioma market. We have observed that the application of combination therapies is gaining traction in the market across regions. Documented evidence on the adoption of combination treatments and benefits is being made available to ease patients’ journey through the treatment process. According to our analysts, there is a great need in the market to efficiently meet the requirements for the present treatment regimen. The drugs that are currently in use do not show much response rates. The malignant mesothelioma treatment market requires drugs to increase the current survival rate.

Acquisitions and collaborations are the key strategies adopted by players to develop molecules for the better treatment of malignant mesothelioma. Companies are focusing on collaborating with established research centers and other cancer drug manufacturers to develop drugs. Our research indicates that the hospital pharmacies distribution channel segment is expected to witness a significant rise in revenue share over the forecast period, owing to the increasing direct procurement of mesothelioma drugs by governments to ensure availability in hospital pharmacies and oncology centers.

We have used our in-house epidemiology data based model to estimate the global malignant mesothelioma market numbers

Weighted average selling price has been considered to estimate the market size of various drugs mentioned in the scope of the study. Price per country is captured with the local currency. The local currency figures are then converted to USD to offer forecasts in a consistent currency standard. We have also considered the latest annual exchange rate to reflect the impact of the most recent economic conditions. Prices considered in the models are standardized based on the average dosage used per malignant mesothelioma treatment per dosage cycle of six months. Availability of branded off-patent equivalents has been taken into consideration while calculating prices. We have adopted the bottom-up approach to forecast the malignant mesothelioma market globally. Besides this, forecasting is done using our internal proprietary model that considers different macro-economic factors, industry based demand driving factors impacting the market and the relevant forecast trends apart from disease related factors.

Research Methodology

Our research methodology leverages both primary and secondary research to collect the relevant market data. We have analyzed the global malignant mesothelioma market by considering key player revenue, usage patterns, historic trends, and problems faced by oncologists, the required treatment developments, and most preferred drugs. Key opinion leaders including experienced healthcare professionals in various healthcare facilities at the country level have been considered for primary research. These estimates have been further validated with drug manufacturers, distributors, and suppliers. Extensive secondary research has been carried out to understand the epidemiology of malignant mesothelioma, treatment rate, adoption rate, regulatory scenarios, average selling price and the global reimbursement scenario by referring to published scientific literature from various databases such as the WHO, Asbestos.com, PubMed, Springer, and Wiley among many others. We have also analyzed the various companies’ annual reports, investor presentations, SEC filings, reports and press releases to fetch substantial information pertaining to the market size, trends, opportunities, drivers, and restraints.
