Hepatocellular carcinoma is one of the most common liver cancers and has a five-year survival rate of only 18%. China represents more than half of all diagnosed cases of liver cancer worldwide. The market in China is poised to experience substantial growth over the 2022-2032 forecast period. Key market drivers include the continued uptake of immune checkpoint inhibitors and combination therapies—Tecentriq plus bevacizumab and Tyvyt plus Byvasda—as well as the anticipated launch and uptake of several targeted therapies in the next 10 years. In this report, we examine how clinical and nonclinical factors (e.g., price dynamics, inclusion in China’s National Reimbursement Drug List) will influence the treatment paradigm in this market during the forecast period. We anticipate that the recent reforms in China’s regulatory and reimbursement landscape will encourage both domestic and multinational manufacturers to enter the growing hepatocellular carcinoma therapy market in China.
