SOURCE: We Market Research

A drug called cetuximab, marketed under the brand name Erbitux, is used to treat head and neck cancer and metastatic colorectal cancer. It is an intravenous infusion of a chimeric monoclonal antibody (human/mouse). It prevents certain cancer cells from expressing the protein known as the epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR). EGFR promotes cancer cell division and growth. Cetuximab can aid in slowing the growth of cancer cells by inhibiting EGFR. Being a targeted therapy, cetuximab targets cancer cells more precisely than radiation or chemotherapy. This may lessen adverse effects. Still, there are certain negative effects that cetuximab may induce, like diarrhea, acne, and skin rashes.

The primary reasons propelling the global market for cetuximab include increasing cancer incidence, advances in biotechnology, increased awareness through screening programs, and patients' preference for targeted medications like cetuximab over traditional chemotherapy. Government initiatives supporting cancer research and treatment as well as the expanding oncology pipeline contribute to the market's growth. Furthermore, increased market competition and better accessibility to cetuximab are brought about by growing healthcare expenses and the emergence of biosimilar equivalents following patent expiration. These factors combined create demand for monoclonal antibody therapy that targets EGFR, cetuximab, which is used to treat colorectal cancer, head and neck malignancies, and maybe other cancer types. The demand also drives innovation and market expansion.
