Immunotherapies in the pipeline are likely to provide more treatment choices and better outcomes than existing therapies. Introduction of newer drug classes, such as monoclonal antibodies and histone deacetylase (HDAC) inhibitors, designed to target receptors related to multiple myeloma, is poised to shape the future of the market. Ongoing studies on similar drugs intended to minimize adverse effects are projected to spur the growth of the market.

In addition, approval of PD-1 and CTLA-4 checkpoint inhibitors for melanoma and Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer (NSCLC) has been boosting the growth of the market. Approval of innovative immunotherapy drug forms, such as vaccines and adjuvants, is on a rise. Moreover, more immunotherapies are being tested for enhanced outputs, such as immunomodulators and CAR T-cell therapy. These new approvals and ongoing research are anticipated to stimulate the growth of the market over the forecast period.


Cancer Immunotherapy Market Segmentation

Based on the Product Insights the market is segmented into Monoclonal Antibodies, Immunomodulators, Oncolytic Viral Therapies and Cancer Vaccines

  • Monoclonal antibodies (mAbs) were the most prominent product segment in 2018. Increasing investments in R&D of monoclonal antibodies as naked antigen binding antibodies, conjugated monoclonal antibodies, and bispecific antibodies have opened new avenues of revenue generation for companies that provide oncology therapeutics.
  • Immunomodulators, unlike other chemo-immunotherapy drugs, are used to modulate immune system of patients, which in turn, enhance the activity of immune system against tumors. Immunomodulators such as cytokine modulators and growth factors are nonspecific therapies.


Based on the Cancer Type Insights the market is segmented into Lung Cancer, Breast Cancer, Colorectal Cancer, Melanoma, Prostate Cancer, Head and Neck Cancer, Ovarian Cancer, Pancreatic Cancer

  • Majority of immunotherapy drugs including few monoclonal antibodies and checkpoint inhibitors are approved for treatment of NSCLC. Monoclonal antibodies successfully prevent formation of new blood vessels by tumor cells, thus facilitating inhibition of an alternative path for growth of tumor cells.
  • Checkpoint inhibitors are used as a first-line treatment in patients suffering from advanced lung tumor. Opdivo, Keytruda, and Tecentriq are immunotherapeutic drugs approved for lung tumor. These drugs are usually prescribed in cases of recurrence of tumor post chemotherapy. The aforementioned factors are estimated to bolster the adoption of these drugs.
  • Cancer immunotherapies are being increasingly used for melanoma therapeutics. The growth of the melanoma segment can be attributed to development of new products, large number of FDA approvals, and extensive R&D in this field.


Based on the Regional Insights the market is segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, Middle East & Africa

  • North America held the largest revenue share in 2018. Rising incidence of the disease, increasing ease of access to modern therapeutics, coupled with expanding geriatric population, are contributing to the growth of the regional market.
  • Asia Pacific is expected to experience the fastest growth during the forecast period. New and advanced immunotherapy drugs are being introduced in China and Japan. These countries have several ongoing clinical trials as well as FDA approvals for new drug molecules and combination therapies. Approval of new treatment drugs in China and Japan are boosting the adoption of immunotherapy for treatment of tumors.
