With the increasing prevalence of cancer and high spending on healthcare, the Americas is expected to lead the global market. Breast cancer poses a major cause of morbidity in the U.S. It has been found that 1 in 8 women develops breast cancer in the U.S. In addition, increasing resistance to aggressive treatments has boosted the demand for novel therapeutic drugs such as capecitabine in the region.

Europe is the second largest market globally. As per EU reports, cancer is one of the leading cause of deaths in the region. There is a requirement of an effective and accessible health system to handle the situation. Several policies have been made to fight against cancer, such as the banning of tobacco products and implementation of population-based screening, which further helps in early detection of different cancers such as breast, cervical, and colorectal.

Asia Pacific is witnessing growing awareness regarding prevention of all cancers as a result of increasing screening approaches and clinical trials in the region. Increasing collaboration with international organizations is also strengthening the research activities in the region. For instance, India and the U.K. have collected 10 million pounds to address the challenges of affordable and preventable cancer treatment.

MEA is expected to witness steady growth. Today, rising prevalence of breast cancer in the Middle East countries is a major concern. Despite major efforts taken for early detection, the number is still on the rise. This can be attributed to the poor quality of life of women, and lack of Education and favorable socio-economic conditions. Moreover, improving health care conditions are expected help in the diagnosis, such as mobile mammography units and family health care programs.
