Report Highlights

  • In the coming years, GBM market is set to change due to the rising awareness of the disease, and incremental healthcare spending across the world; which would expand the size of the market to enable the drug manufacturers to penetrate more into the market.

  • The companies and academics are working to assess challenges and seek opportunities that could influence GBM R&D. The therapies under development are focused on novel approaches to treat/improve the disease condition.

  • The publisher has analysed type-specific data of GBM according to which there are two main types of Glioblasoma: Primary (de novo) and Secondary Glioblastoma, where the majority of cases ( > 90%) are primary glioblastomas that develop rapidly de novo, without clinical or histological evidence of a less malignant precursor lesion.

  • Diagnosed incidence according to histological classification of GBM tumor was also assessed, which suggests that the conventional GBM type is more prevalent than giant cell GBM (GC-GBM), and gliosarcoma (GS).

  • In addition, gender-specific incidence of GBM was also assessed. As per the analysis, GBM is more prevalent in males than in females.

  • The epidemiology segmentation also encompasses diagnosed incident population according to primary site of glioblastoma. As per The estimates, it has been found that the primary site of GBM included maximum cases at parietal site, while minimum number of cases were found in unknown and other sites. This trend is clearly evident across all the 7MM countries for the study period 2018-2030.

  • The report also encompasses another major segment, i.e., Age-specific Diagnosed Incident Population of GBM, wherein various age groups have been considered, such as < 18, 18-34, 35-64, 65-74 and 75+. It has been found that GBM incidence increases with age peaking at 75-84 years and drops after 85 years.

  • Expected Launch of potential therapies may increase the market size in the coming years, assisted by an increase in the incident population of GBM. The market is expected to witness a significant positive shift owing to the positive outcomes of the several products during the developmental stage by key players such as Bayer, Diffusion Pharmaceuticals, VBL Therapeutics, AstraZeneca, DNAtrix, Kintara Therapeutics, Chimerix, KaryoPharma, VBI Vaccines, Kazia Therapeutics, Aivita Biomedical, Medicenna Therapeutics, Immunomic Therapeutics, Treovir, Istari Oncology and Inovio Pharmaceuticals.
