GlobalData Brain Tumor - Drug Pipeline Analysis and Market Forecast to 2016 shows the market at a little over $1 billion in 2009 and forecasts growth at a CAGR of 3.1% to reach $1.3 billion by 2016. An increasing amount of novel therapies are expected to launch in this period and this will act as a significant driver for the market.
GlobalData expects major pharmaceutical companies like Pfizer (NYSE: PFE), Merck (NYSE: MRK) and Novartis AG (NYSE: NVA) to lead the competition, but in an article from ibtimes.com, the trend is that big pharmaceutical companies reach out into partnerships to keep their own R&D costs to a minimum, which could be a trend that drives the brain tumor treatment market.
