Over the past few years, there have been tremendous efforts for the development of novel cancer therapies which can enhance the target ability and specificity towards the cancer cells. The extensive research and development in this sector has enabled the researchers to utilize the therapeutic potential of small peptides in the management of cancer. The introduction of therapeutic peptides in the cancer therapeutic market has greatly transformed the paradigm of cancer treatment.

The peptide therapeutics market is currently thriving due to their various advantages over other available cancer therapies. The lower toxicity of peptides can be credited to both their low instance of interaction with other molecules not of interest and also their ease of metabolism into their component amino acid residues. Furthermore their ease of manufacturing has attracted several pharmaceutical companies. In addition to this, their remarkable property to cross the blood brain barrier has attracted the researchers for the development of potential peptides targeting the receptors of various cancers.

Currently, there are several peptide based drug which are available in the market and have shown positive results in the management of wide range of cancers. The increased interest of the scientists can also be justified by the rapid approval of first peptide based cancer vaccine for treatment of prostate cancer. Moreover, slews of new peptides with positive preclinical studies have entered the clinical trials and are expected to enter the market in next few years. It is expected that the drugs will show great clinical response in comparison to other available cancer therapies.

The global peptide cancer therapeutic market is going to flourish in next few years due to several favorable parameters including their high specificity, rising investments in drug discover and the increase prevalence of cancer incidences. Furthermore, the increase in collaborations and partnerships among the pharmaceutical companies for the development of novel drugs in the management of cancer is going to boost the market. Despite this, there are several challenges such as their high manufacturing cost, limited oral bioavailability and low resistance to cleavage by serum proteases which restrain their growth in market.

In terms of revenues, North America is currently holding the top position and is expected to dominate the global peptide cancer market. This is mainly attributed to the region's potency in healthcare and a strong presence of various peptide based cancer therapeutic drug manufacturers is supporting the growth of the market in North America. Moreover, the presence of top key players such as Novartis, AstraZeneca, Teva Pharmaceuticals and Pfizer also favors the growth of this region.

On the other hand, Asia Pacific is expected to register considerable growth over the forecast period owing to high untapped opportunities, low cost of raw material, growing base of companies providing outsourcing services, flourishing biotech industry, and increasing investments in the R&D sector. Cheaper cost of raw materials and patent expiration of blockbuster drugs boosting generic market is expected to provide significant growth opportunities shortly. In coming years, the cancer therapeutics market will witness increasing adoption of novel peptide therapeutics and will contribute to a major share in the overall market.
