Global Male Breast Cancer Market 2020 Global Trends, Key Vendors, Regional Analysis, Import & Export, Revenue by Forecast 2023

Male Breast Cancer refers to the extra growth of breast tissues. Some of the numerous factors that are causing this cancerous growth include obesity, growing age. Although breast cancer is rare in males than that of women, the FDA predicts 2,670 cases of male breast cancer in 2019.

However, the good news is that there are several FDA-approved endocrine-based therapies available for HR-positive metastatic breast cancer patients. According to the current clinical practice standards, specific treatments are gender-neutral in their indication, but some medicines have been approved only for men.

The male breast cancer market is already equipped with various effective treatments such as hormone therapy which is also called endocrine therapy or chemotherapy. The rising prevalence of the male breast cancer and the availability of effective therapeutics are two the key driving forces behind the market for breast cancer in men.

The male breast cancer market is growing slowly but steadily. In its recently published study report, Market Research Future (MRFR) assets that the market is expected to register a CAGR over 3.6% during the forecast period (2018 to 2023).

Technological advancement in medical science & biotechnology has improved the outlook for many men diagnosed, but again the recovery is still challenging as survivors adjust to the scars that remain mentally and physically.

Surprisingly, breast cancer in men is still accruing rapidly, and the changing lifestyle is to be blamed. The improving economy, on the one hand, is increasing the purchasing power of people, increasing access to the modern lifestyle and hence the growing additions such as smoking and alcoholism. On the other hand, rapidly developing economy is availing many treatment and precautionary measures, widening the access to the quality healthcare.

Other notable factors driving the market growth include increasing male geriatric population, exposure to harmful radiation, and genetic mutations (abnormal changes). The increasing governmental initiatives in terms of funding are encouraging pharmaceutical companies to develop more effective treatment procedures.

The unavailability of comprehensive treatment presages the broad scope for the market to evolve further. Hence, pharma companies are investing increasingly in R&D that can bring about breakthrough drug discoveries.

Conversely, high costs associated with the clinical trials, prolonged approvals, adverse effects of therapies or drugs are restricting the market growth. Nevertheless, the advent of effective treatments brought forward during the past few years and the approval of medication called CDK45 Inhibitors has impacted the market in a big way.

Industry/ Innovation/Related News:

April 04, 2019 ---- Pfizer Inc. (the US), a multinational pharmaceutical corporation announced that the US FDA has expanded the use of Pfizer’s Ibrance (palbociclib) capsules in the treatment of male breast cancer. The FDA decision was based on electronic health records (EHR) and post-marketing reports of the real-world use of Ibrance in men.

The FDA approval of Pfizer’s supplemental New Drug Application (sNDA) makes Ibrance first-line treatment available for men with a subset of advanced breast cancer – i.e., with metastatic breast cancer (hormone receptor-positive (HR+) and human epidermal growth factor receptor 2-negative (HER2-)).

Due to the new FDA policy, Ibrance has become the first and only CDK 4/6 inhibitor to be given the nod in the US for first-line treatment for advanced metastatic breast cancer in men.

That puts Pfizer ahead of rivals such as Novartis’ Kisqali (ribociclib) and Eli Lilly’s Verzenios (abemaciclib). The FDA approval further allows Pfizer to take a step forward using the real-world data to bring medicines to patients who are most in need.
