Global Market Size, Forecast, and Trend Highlights Over 2023-2035

Neuroblastoma Market size is estimated to reach USD 5,100 Million by the end of 2035, growing at a CAGR of 4% during the forecast period, i.e., 2023-2035. In the year 2022, the industry size of neuroblastoma was USD 2900 Million. The growth of the market can be attributed to the increasing incidence of neuroblastoma and the development of new and advanced treatment methods. For instance, neuroblastoma accounts for approximately 8–10% of all cases of childhood cancer. According to statistics, neuroblastoma occurs in 11 to 13 children under the age of 15 per million, and in children 10–14 years of age, the incidence rate rises to 65 per million. Neuroblastoma is a type of cancer that affects the peripheral nervous system, which is made up of nerves that connect the central nervous system to the rest of the body. As this type of cancer becomes more common, the need for diagnosis, treatment, and management of the disease is expected to increase, thereby driving the growth of the neuroblastoma market.

 In addition to these, factors that are believed to fuel the market growth of neuroblastoma include increasing investments in the healthcare sector, the rising number of clinical trials, and the growing awareness about the disease among patients. Furthermore, an increasing success rate for cancer immunotherapy is further projected to enhance market growth. For instance, it has been estimated that 87% of children in the UK who have successfully completed immunotherapy have shown no evidence of disease last two years after completing the treatment. Also, five years after immunotherapy begins, approximately 78% of children in remission remain free of disease. The success rate of immunotherapy has been increasing owing to advancements in cancer research and the development of new drugs, which can help to improve the chances of survival for patients with neuroblastoma.

Neuroblastoma Sector: Growth Drivers and Challenges

Growth Drivers

  • Enhanced Survival Rates of Children Diagnosed with Neuroblastoma - For instance, a 5-year relative survival rate of more than 95% is achieved by children with low-risk neuroblastoma, and between 90% and 95% is achieved by children with intermediate-risk neuroblastoma. In children with neuroblastoma at high risk, the 5-year relative survival rate is approximately 50%. Since the introduction of effective treatments and therapies, the survival rate of children diagnosed with neuroblastoma has increased significantly. This has resulted in increased demand for treatments and therapies, driving growth in the neuroblastoma market.
  • Support And Funding from The Government for Children With Cancer- For instance, Lions Clubs International Foundation (LCIF) provides grants to projects that address the needs of children with cancer and their families. This can include financial assistance for medical costs, educational opportunities, and other supportive services. LCIF also works to increase public awareness of the needs of children with cancer and the importance of early detection and treatment of the disease.
  • Increasing Expenditures on Cancer Treatment- A significant proportion of U.S. healthcare expenditures is spent on cancer. Oncology health care in the U.S. is expected to grow to USD 246 billion by 2030, which is an increase of 34% over the 2015 amount of USD 183 billion spent in the U.S. on cancer health care.
  • Pharmacological Study of Targeted Drugs for Treating Neuroblastoma - There are now clinical trials examining new drugs targeting neuroblastoma cells more specifically than standard chemotherapy drugs. For instance, Crizotinib (Xalkori) is being studied for treating children with high-risk neuroblastoma when their cells display abnormal ALK gene sequences. In addition to lorlatinib (Lorbrena) and ceritinib (Zykadia), other drugs that target ALK-reactive cells are also being explored.
  • Drug Approvals by Regulatory Authorities For Cancer Treatment - For instance, on November 25, 2020, Naxitamab (Danyelza) has been approved by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for the treatment of high-risk neuroblastoma cases. Research at Memorial Sloan Kettering's MSK Kids program contributed to the development of naxitamab (Danyelza).


  • Side effects associated with the treatments - Neuroblastoma treatments are often very harsh, with long-term effects on the patient's physical and mental health. These side effects can range from nausea and fatigue to memory loss and cognitive impairment, which can all have a negative impact on quality of life.
  • Lack of awareness about the condition and its symptoms
  • High cost of treatment and limited access to advanced therapies in developing economies

Neuroblastoma Segmentation

Treatment Type (Chemotherapy, Immunotherapy)

The global neuroblastoma market is segmented and analyzed for demand and supply by treatment type into chemotherapy, immunotherapy, and others. Out of these, the chemotherapy segment is estimated to gain the largest market share of about ~37% in the year 2035. The growth of the segment can be attributed to the rising investments in research and development activities for the development of new chemotherapeutic drugs. Furthermore, the increasing number of clinical trials for the development of advanced chemotherapeutic agents is further expected to fuel the growth of the segment. For instance, a variety of advanced therapeutic agents are being developed, including alkylating agents, antimetabolites, antimicrotubular agents, as well as antibiotics like actinomycin D, bleomycin, and daunomycin. Additionally, chemotherapy has been the mainstay of treatment for neuroblastoma and is expected to remain so in the near future.

Product Type (Tablets, Vaccines)

The global neuroblastoma market is segmented and analyzed for demand and supply by product type into tablets, vaccines, and others. Out of these, the tablets segment is estimated to gain a significant market share of about ~39% in the year 2035. The tablets segment has seen tremendous growth owing to the ease of administration, better efficacy and safety profiles, and increased affordability compared to other product types. Furthermore, the emergence of precision medicine has also contributed to the growth of this segment as it is able to provide personalized drug therapies tailored to individual patients’ needs. Tablet dosage forms have higher bioavailability, meaning that more of the active ingredients are absorbed into the bloodstream, thus providing more effective treatments with fewer side effects.
