Report Highlights:

Liver cancer poses a significant public health concern due to its high mortality rate, with over 800,000 deaths annually, making it the fourth leading cause of death globally. The disease exhibits a low 5-year survival rate of 30%–35% post-diagnosis, with hepatocellular carcinoma being the most prevalent type, accounting for approximately 90% of cases. Other types such as hepatoblastoma and intrahepatic carcinoma are less common. While the exact cause of liver cancer is not fully understood, chronic hepatitis infections, particularly hepatitis B and hepatitis C, are known risk factors.

For example, in 2019, the World Health Organization (WHO) estimated that 296 million people worldwide were living with chronic hepatitis B infection, with 1.5 million new cases reported annually. Hepatitis B is responsible for a significant number of deaths, primarily due to hepatocellular carcinoma and liver cirrhosis. Treatment options for advanced liver cancer include various medications and immunotherapy for first-line treatment, while second-line treatments involve chemotherapeutic agents derived from natural and synthetic sources. Common first-line treatments include sorafenib and lenvatinib, while regorafenib and ramucirumab are among the second-line options. Treatment selection typically depends on the stage of the disease. Tyrosine kinase inhibitors (TKIs) have shown promise in prolonging survival and improving outcomes, especially in patients with unresectable hepatocellular carcinoma, including those who have undergone immunotherapy. Surgical interventions such as hepatectomy and liver transplantation, as well as ablation and radiation therapy, are also viable options.

The exponential growth projected for the liver cancer drugs market can be attributed to a myriad of factors, each playing a pivotal role in shaping its trajectory. One such factor is the rising incidence of liver cancer globally, fueled by lifestyle changes, prevalence of hepatitis B and C infections, and environmental factors. Moreover, advancements in diagnostic techniques have led to early detection, thereby increasing the demand for effective treatment options.

The landscape of liver cancer therapeutics is witnessing a paradigm shift, with a plethora of innovative drugs making their way into the market. From targeted therapies and immunotherapies to combination regimens, pharmaceutical companies are leaving no stone unturned in their quest to combat this formidable disease. Key players are investing heavily in research and development, with a focus on novel mechanisms of action and personalized medicine approaches.

Geographical Differences of Liver Cancer

In recent decades, the prevalence of non-infectious diseases has surged despite significant strides in prevention and control. Liver cancer, ranking second in cancer-related deaths globally, has become the sixth most common cancer in Asia. In 2020, Asia reported approximately 609,596 new cases, constituting about 72.5% of global liver cancer diagnoses.

Regional disparities are notable, with sub-Saharan Africa and East Asia experiencing the highest rates, each with distinct underlying causes. Wealthier nations have witnessed a decline in liver cancer cases due to widespread adoption of viral hepatitis treatments and vaccination initiatives. Conversely, low-income nations are seeing a rise, often attributed to unsafe injection practices and the prevalence of viral hepatitis.
