Cancer therapy involves the use of surgical or non-surgical procedures for the treatment of various cancers. A patient suffering from cancer can receive many different types of therapies, including treatment designed for reducing cancer symptoms, such as pain and fatigue. Some of the commonly used therapeutic procedures for cancer include chemotherapy, targeted therapy, immunotherapy, hormonal therapy, and radiation therapy. Few of the most prevalent cancer types in Brazil include breast cancer, prostate cancer, lung cancer, and colorectum cancer.

Based on Cancer Type, the Brazil Cancer Therapy Market is segmented into Blood Cancer, Bone Cancer, Skin Cancer, Breast Cancer, Colorectal Cancer, Oral Cancer, Gastrointestinal Cancer, Prostate Cancer, Kidney Cancer, Endocrine Cancer, Respiratory Cancer, and Others. The prostate cancer segment is anticipated to have the largest share of the market in 2021 and is poised to dominate the market during the forecast period 2022-2027. This is attributed to the high prevalence of prostate cancer among the Brazilian population. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), prostate cancer accounted for nearly 16.4% of all new cancer cases in 2020. Moreover, prostate cancer accounted for more than 32.4% of cancer cases among males in 2020.

Brazil Cancer Therapy Market Drivers

Increase in Geriatric Population is Projected to Drive Market Growth.

The proportion of the elderly population in Brazil has grown significantly since 1950. For instance, the geriatric population in 1950 was only around 2.6 million, representing about 4.9% of the population. In 2020, the elderly population reached 30.1 million, representing about 14.3% of the population. Moreover, it is estimated that the geriatric population will reach 73.4 million by 2060. This is anticipated to drive the market for cancer therapy as the geriatric population is more susceptible to cancers. For instance, the median age for the diagnosis of prostate cancer is 66 years. Meanwhile, the median age is 67 years for colorectal cancer and 71 years for lung cancer.

The rise in Lifestyle disorders is Anticipated to Boost Demand

Owing to the growth in disposable income and urbanization in Brazil, more people are following a sedentary lifestyle. This is causing an increase in lifestyle diseases such as obesity and hypertension among the population. For instance, obesity rates increased from only 12.2% in 2003 to around 22.1% in 2021. Moreover, the proportion of the population who are overweight increased from 43.3% in 2003 to 61.7% in 2019. Besides, it is estimated that nearly 40.7% of Brazilians suffer from hypertension. This is driving the demand as obesity and hypertension are major risk factors of cancer.

Brazil Cancer Therapy Market Challenges

The High Cost of Cancer Therapy is Anticipated to Hamper Market Growth

The high cost of cancer therapy is a major challenge that can hamper market growth. According to the US National Institute of Health (NIH), the annual mean cost per patient for cancer therapy in Brazil was $9,572.3, varying from $5,782.1 for breast cancer to $16,656 for cervical cancer. This can make high-quality cancer therapy inaccessible to the vast majority of the population as the average per capita income of the country is estimated to be only around $14,550 in 2020. Besides, even though Brazil provides free public healthcare, the waiting period for medical services can be extremely long as the facilities are often oversubscribed.

COVID-19 Pandemic and Subsequent Restrictions is Projected to Limit Growth Opportunities

The rapid spread of the Covid-19 virus and the rising patient hospitalizations have increased the stress faced by the Brazilian healthcare system. This is challenging the market growth as hospitals are forced to divert funds from other departments including oncology in order to procure essential equipment such as ventilators, PPE kits, masks, ICU beds, and oxygen concentrators for combating the pandemic. At least 22 million people were infected and more than 611,000 people died from the virus. Moreover, the fear of contracting the virus from the hospital environment is causing patients to cancel diagnostic and treatment appointments, further contributing to the decrease in market growth.
