Cancer Immunotherapy Market Propelled by increasing research funding in Cancer Immunotherapy

Cancer immunotherapy is a type of cancer treatment that boosts a person’s own immune system to help the body fight cancer, tumors, or other diseases. It involves using substances made by the body or in a laboratory to improve, target, or restore immune system function. The increasing research funding by various organizations and government bodies for the development of new and effective cancer immunotherapies has propelled the growth of this market.

The global Cancer Immunotherapy Market is estimated to be valued at US$ 129291.49 Bn in 2024 and is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 17% over the forecast period 2024-2031, as highlighted in a new report published by Coherent Market Insights.

Market key trends:
One of the key trends fuelling the growth of the cancer immunotherapy market size is the increasing research funding for cancer immunotherapy research. Various private and public organizations are funding extensive research for developing novel cancer immunotherapies with higher effectiveness and success rates. For instance, the National Cancer Institute (NCI), a division of National Institutes of Health (NIH), provided over USD 6 billion funding for cancer research in 2021, out of which a significant share was directed towards cancer immunotherapy research. Similarly, private organizations like Cancer Research UK and American Cancer Society are extensively investing in immunotherapy research. This high research funding is encouraging pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies to invest in immunotherapy drug development, thereby driving the market growth over the forecast period.

SWOT Analysis
