GlobalData analysis finds that the global gastric cancer therapeutics market is attractive, and is primarily driven by the growth in the number of patients receiving gastric cancer therapy and the annual cost of therapy. The patient volume is primarily driven by an increase in patient volume in countries such as China, France, Spain and Italy. The patient volume was driven by growth in treatment usage patterns such as diseased population, treatment seeking population, diagnosis population and prescription population. The annual cost of gastric cancer therapy was driven by the launch of new therapies such as Taxotere (docetaxel), Xeloda (capecitabine) and Herceptin (trastuzumab).
