Conventional TACE is considered as a standard treatment for HCC.
The global Transarterial Chemoembolization Market Dynamics Is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 8.57% to reach USD 2777.22 billion by 2025.
Improvement in the reimbursement scenario and increasing incidence of HCC are impacting the growth of the market. HCC accounts for approximately 70% to 90% of all primary liver cancers and is the third most fatal cancer worldwide.
