Gestational Trophoblastic Disease Market 2019 Analysis, Opportunities And Forecast To 2023

Market Scenario

The global gestational trophoblastic disease market is expected to grow significantly at a healthy CAGR during the forecast period from 2018 to 2023. Gestational trophoblastic disease (GTD) comprises a group of interrelated ailments that arise from the placental trophoblastic tissue. This can occur after normal or abnormal fertilization and is characterized by a distinct tumor marker, β-subunit of human chorionic gonadotrophin (β HCG).

Increase in risk factors affecting this spectrum of disease is expected to drive the growth of the market. These risk factors include high maternal age, the rise in ectopic pregnancies and excessive smoking. According to the American Lung Association, cigarette smoking kills an estimated 201,770 women annually in the US. Also, the increase in innovations in the field of oncology in anticipated to contribute significantly to the growth in this market. For instance, as on 11th October 2018, Bristol-Myers Squibb Company and Compugen Ltd. announced a clinical collaboration to evaluate therapeutic regimen in advanced solid tumors. Compugen Ltd., being a therapeutic discovery company, consists of immuno-oncology programs against novel drug targets in the areas of unmet medical needs in various cancer types and patient populations.

Moreover, high risk of recurrence of the tumors, even after single or multi-agent chemotherapy and difficulty in diagnosing the types of hydatidiform moles may hamper the market growth. Also, mismanagement of the disease with unclear or no guidelines in different regions may curb the growth of gestational trophoblastic disease during the assessment period. Some of the forms of the gestational trophoblastic disease start to show symptoms only after it reaches stage III. At this stage, it might have already spread to other parts of the body. According to the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO), about 35% of women with placental-site trophoblastic tumor have had the cancer spread before it was diagnosed.
