According to the report, the increasing aging population globally is fuelling the market for glioblastoma multiforme treatment. In addition, a number of non-government and government organizations are taking several steps to increase awareness on GBM, hence boosting the market. Furthermore, it has been predicted that the introduction of a number of novel therapies in the coming years will also augment the growth of the market for glioblastoma multiforme treatment in forthcoming years. On the other hand, the present survival period of drugs approved by the FDA for the treatment of glioblastoma multiforme is less and this is a key factor restraining the growth of the market. In addition, currently available therapies have limitations owing to GBM being immensely resistant to DNA modifying agents. This may also pose a negative impact on the growth of the market.
On the basis of drug, the market for glioblastoma multiforme treatment is segmented into bevacizumab (avastin), carmustine (bicnu), and temozolomide (temodar, temodal, and temcad). Amongst these, in 2013, temozolomide took the largest share in the market owing to its great effectiveness. On the other hand, bevacizumab (avastin) is the latest addition to the string of drugs and is the first monoclonal antibody drug passed for the treatment of GBM. This drug is relatively more effective as compared to temozolomide and is predicted to hold the largest share in the market on the basis of revenue by the end of 2016.
