Prostate Cancer – Canada Drug Forecast and Market Analysis to 2023

Pages: 187 Published: April 01, 2015 Report Code: GDHC341CFR

Prostate cancer is the second most common cancer in men worldwide, after skin cancer. It accounts for 15% of all the cancers diagnosed in men, and thus represents a huge burden on healthcare systems. While patients diagnosed with early-stage, localized prostate cancer can be cured, patients who are diagnosed with or progress to castration-resistant prostate cancer (CRPC) have no curative options. This report focuses on the current treatment landscape, unmet needs, pipeline assessment and market outlook for prostate cancer. . Since 2010, five new drugs have been approved for the treatment of CRPC: Dendreon’s Provenge, Sanofi’s Jevtana, Johnson & Johnson’s Zytiga, Medivation/Astellas’ Xtandi, and Bayer’s Xofigo. During the forecast period from 2013-2023, GlobalData expects that nine new late-stage pipeline agents will launch, eight of which will be for the treatment of CRPC. As a result of this unprecedented level of clinical development, GlobalData predicts there will be massive changes in the CRPC treatment paradigm. In addition, due to the influx of new therapies, the size of the prostate cancer market across the nine major pharmaceutical markets (9MM) (US, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, UK, Japan, Brazil, and Canada) will increase three-fold. In 2013, GlobalData estimated that the sales of branded prostate cancer therapies in Canada were $41m. This strong growth will be a result of the increasing incidence of prostate cancer as the population ages, increased sales resulting from the launch of eight new premium-priced pipeline products during the forecast period, and the label extension of Xtandi into the nmCRPC and hormone-sensitive prostate cancer patient populations. *This is an on-demand report and will be delivered within 24 hrs.
