It also covers disease epidemiology, treatment algorithms, treatment patterns, in-depth analysis of clinical trials including failure rates and pipeline analysis, and analysis of deals relevant to Colorectal Cancer (CRC). The market in the APAC region was worth an estimated $1.9 billion in 2013 and is expected to grow at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 6.5% to $1.9 billion in 2020. The use of targeted therapies is expected to increase in the Asia-Pacific (APAC) markets (for the purposes of this report, APAC refers to Australia, China, India and Japan only), as patient access to these more expensive agents improves.

The moderate uptake of late-stage pipeline products panitumumab and Xilonix, following their expected approval, is expected to drive additional growth within this market. Others such as ramucirumab, TAS-102, TS-1, MelCancerVac will also contribute. An increasingly aging population and a year-on-year increase in the number of incident cases will provide an additional boost. However, the recent implementation of a price ceiling on essential drugs in India; anticipated pricing restrictions in China; and low access, penetration and price erosion due to generic dominance, especially in India, stand to curtail the APAC CRC market.
