The Atezolizumab Market is driven by rising cancer burden

Atezolizumab is a monoclonal antibody commonly used to treat several types of cancer including lung cancer, kidney cancer, bladder cancer, and other solid tumors. Atezolizumab functions by blocking the interaction between PD-L1 and PD-1 to boost the anti-tumor immune response. It offers an effective treatment option with lesser side effects compared to chemotherapy. The global cancer burden has been steadily rising owing to lifestyle changes, environmental toxins, and prolonged lifespan. According to WHO, cancer accounted for nearly 10 million deaths in 2020 and its incidence is projected to further increase in the coming years. The growing cancer cases worldwide are fueling the demand for effective immunotherapies like atezolizumab.

The global Atezolizumab Market is estimated to be valued at US$ 308 Million in 2024 and is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 3.0% over the forecast period 2023 to 2030, as highlighted in a new report published by Coherent Market Insights.

Market key trends:
Combination therapies emerging as a key trend in cancer treatment. Most cancer patients receive treatment with multiple anti-cancer drugs targeting different pathways and immune receptors. Combination of atezolizumab with chemotherapy or other immunotherapies is being widely investigated in clinical trials. For instance, combination of atezolizumab with bevacizumab has shown promising efficacy for treating NSCLC, breast cancer, and liver cancer. Such combination regimens are expected to become standard of care in the coming years owing to superior treatment outcomes. This is anticipated to augment the demand for atezolizumab during the forecast period.
