Market opportunity for H&N cancer
The global head and neck cancer incidence is 625,000 new patients per year (Menezes et al., 2021). Approximately 70% of these patients qualify for radiotherapy (Pignon 2009).
The global market for head and neck cancer is expected to reach $4.5 billion by 2027, growing at CAGR 17.3% over the forecast period, driven by rising epidemic of oropharyngeal cancer associated with HPV, and anticipated approval of checkpoint inhibitors. (iHealthcareAnalyst, 2020)
