Germ Cell Tumor Sector: Growth Drivers and Challenges

Growth Drivers

  • Growing Adoption of Platinum-Based Chemotherapy Regimens – An important growth factor behind this is that a large number of patients have begun to take platinum regimen chemotherapy due to its several advantages, such as more tumor shrinkage and less risk for recurrence.
  • Problems Associated with Germ Cell Formulations - The germ cell tumor market is primarily being driven by the rising number of cases of disruptions or anomalies in the normal process of germ cell production and migration. A bright prognosis for the market is also being created by the increased prevalence of several associated risk factors, such as aberrant gonad development, undescended testicles, hereditary predisposition, and previous medical diseases including testicular microlithiasis.
  • Growing Demand for Personalized Medicines – There is a growing demand for personalized medicines in the treatment of germ cell tumors. This driven by the fact that germ cell tumors can be heterogeneous meaning that they can vary widely in their genetic makeup and response to treatment. Currently 286 personalized medicines are available in the United States.


  • High Cost of Treatment – The cost of treating germ cell tumors can be high, especially for patients with advanced disease. This is due to germ cell tumor treatment, such as chemotherapy and radiation therapy can be high in cost. Additionally, patients with germ cell tumor may require multiple rounds of treatment which can further raise the cost.
  • Lack of Effective Treatment for Relapsed Disease
  • Side Effects Associated
