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

Urothelial Carcinoma Treatment Market size is expected to cross USD 5 Billion by the end of 2035, witnessing around 21% CAGR during the forecast period, i.e., 2023-2035. In the year 2022, the industry size of urothelial carcinoma treatment was USD 1 Billion. The growth of the market can be attributed to the increasing incidence of bladder cancer worldwide. Further, in terms of prevalence, bladder cancer ranks 10th around the globe. Men have nearly four times more chances than women to have bladder cancer.  Smoking poses the biggest risk for bladder cancer, as tobacco contains carcinogens, which are poisons, and are known to cause cancer. Long-term smoking causes your kidneys to filter these poisons into urine before they enter your bloodstream. According to estimates, there are more than 1 billion smokers globally. This number is projected to increase to 2 billion over the next 20 years.

In addition to these, factors that are believed to fuel the market growth of urothelial carcinoma treatment include the excessive use of analgesics. Analgesics are commonly known as "painkillers," which are used to treat a variety of pains, including headaches, injuries, and arthritis. Painkillers are safe however, they might have unfavorable side effects and difficulties if taken too regularly, for too long, or in very large doses. Further, urinary tract cancer and atherosclerosis disease are two additional severe consequences that can result from long-term strong painkiller usage. For instance, painkiller usage is the most typical cause of bladder cancer in women under the age of 50.

By 2026, 40% of all IoT-driven devices will be utilized in the health and wellness sector.

  • Rising Funding for Research and Development to Develop Novel Cancer Therapies – Drug development is being fueled by significant investment in the field of cancer therapy. Many scientific advancements have resulted from this developing field of study. The creation of new treatments that have enhanced patient outcomes and have the potential to increase patient lifespans by months or years. The US Food and Drug Administration authorized more than 60 of 355 novel therapeutic medicines and biologic compounds between 2009 and 2018.

  • Growing Drug Approvals for Cancer– Better treatments receiving approval from prestigious drug regulatory agencies are anticipated to be advantageous for the market for urothelial cancer medications. In 2021, more than 200 cancer drugs were approved in oncology and malignant hematology.

  • Rising Awareness Regarding Early Diagnosis of Cancer – Knowledge about malignancies and cancer screening measures will aid in an earlier diagnosis, more effective treatment, and better results. Early intervention involves delivering care at the earliest time feasible.  A reduced likelihood of survival, more treatment-related issues, and a higher cost of care are all consequences of delayed or unavailable cancer therapy. The American Cancer Society estimates that the 5-year relative survival rate is more than 90% for breast cancer that is diagnosed early, and in the localized stage.


  • Adverse effects of chemotherapy - Drugs circulate throughout the body and can impact healthy, normal cells as well as those that are rapidly dividing. There are adverse consequences when healthy cells are damaged. For instance, certain chemotherapy medications can harm the cells in the nervous system, heart, kidneys, bladder, and lungs. While some adverse effects may take months or even years to entirely disappear, many of them do so rather rapidly.
  • Expensive equipment is needed for urothelial carcinoma therapy
  • The high cost of R&D expenditure for the creation of a new medicine for treatment

Urothelial Carcinoma Treatment Segmentation

Treatment (Immunotherapy, Radiotherapy, Chemotherapy

The global urothelial carcinoma treatment market is segmented and analyzed for demand and supply by treatment into immunotherapy, radiotherapy, and chemotherapy. Out of the three types of treatments, the chemotherapy segment is estimated to gain the largest market share over the projected time frame. The growth of the segment can be attributed to the introduction of more chemotherapeutic drugs which are being approved for use in the urothelial carcinoma treatment. Clinical trials are being conducted on a variety of systemic chemotherapies to determine which medicines or medication combinations are most effective at treating bladder cancer. The majority of the time, a pharmacological cocktail is more effective than a single medication. For instance, the use of cisplatin-based chemotherapy prior to major surgery for muscle-invasive bladder cancer is firmly supported by scientific research. Cisplatin is a chemotherapy drug used which is usually used to treat testicular, ovarian, bladder, head and neck, lung, and cervical cancer. In 2018, approximately 10 million out of 17 million new cases of cancer required chemotherapy globally.

End-user (Hospital Pharmacy, Retail Pharmacy)

The global urothelial carcinoma treatment market is also segmented and analyzed for demand and supply by end-user into hospital pharmacy, retail pharmacy, and others. Amongst these three segments, the hospital pharmacy segment is expected to garner a significant share. Hospitals are a critical part of the healthcare business and a significant source of revenue for the whole sector, which supports research and innovation. A hospital's uses cutting-edge medical technology to address complex medical situations. It is simpler and more convenient for patients with cancer or other diseases to acquire the recommended medications right on the hospital grounds when they are receiving treatment. On the other hand, private hospitals are increasingly being seen as needed to increase their specialization and cater to patients who need urgent medical attention, such as cancer and cardiovascular treatment.
