The Bladder Cancer market is expected to significantly grow from $733m in 2018 to $4.0bn by 2028 across the seven major markets (7MM - US, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, UK, and Japan) at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 18.5%. The exponential growth of the bladder cancer market will be driven by an increasing incident patient population and the approval and launch of new branded therapies with different MOAs: Balversa, Padcev, Vofatamab, Vicinium, Qapzola, N-803 and Instilidrin.

In addition, the label expansion of currently marketed therapies: PD-1/PD-L1 checkpoint inhibitors in combination with chemotherapies or other immuno-oncology agents will promote market growth during the forecast period. PD-1/PD-L1 checkpoint inhibitors are highly anticipated in bladder cancer and they are expected to have greater adoption and usage in different lines of therapy across the 7MM (US, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, UK, and Japan), especially in the areas where unmet need is the highest.

However, a major barrier for market growth in bladder cancer will be identifying the patient population with specific mutations for targeted therapy regimens, which is not feasible for all patients as costs for identification would be expensive for the payers, and will limit the usage of these drugs. In the EU and Japan, the usage of checkpoint inhibitors other than Keytruda and Tecentriq is currently difficult due to reimbursement restrictions. Competition from other drugs and reimbursement restriction will tamper the growth of the market significantly.

Among the pipeline candidates, PD-1/PD-L1 inhibitors as monotherapy or as a combination regimen are expected to result in significant revenues due to premium pricing and clinical benefit in BCG-relapsed and refractory patients, as well as in platinum based chemotherapy ineligible patients.

The usage of PD-1/PD-L1 inhibitors in bladder cancer is expanding, translating to the major contributor of increased revenue in the 7MM (US, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, UK, and Japan) over the forecast period. Label expansion of PD-1/PD-L1 inhibitors and the launch of novel drugs such as Vicinium, N-803, Instiladrin for non-muscle invasive bladder cancer population are major drivers of the US market.

Key opinion leaders (KOLs) across the 7MM (US, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, UK, and Japan) are very enthusiastic about Padcev and sales revenues for this drug is set to increase at a CAGR of 18.8% from the time of launch in 2020 over the forecast period. In addition, evaluating targeted therapy regimens in combination with immune checkpoint inhibitors will aid in better product adoption across all type of bladder cancer patients.
