The hepatocellular carcinoma market in China is poised to experience substantial market growth over the 2021-2031 period. In China, even though systemic targeted drugs for hepatocellular carcinoma are limited, with only a few agents beyond surgery or chemotherapy available, the pipeline of emerging therapies is promising. The key drivers of market growth will be the anticipated launch and uptake of several targeted therapies for hepatocellular carcinoma in China—particularly from the immune checkpoint inhibitors class—and the incorporation of many of these therapies into China’s National Reimbursement Drug List (NRDL); inclusion in the NRDL will secure better patient access. Additionally, following the recent reforms in China’s regulatory and reimbursement landscape, manufacturers—both domestic and multinational—will be increasingly incentivized to enter the growing hepatocellular carcinoma market over the coming years.
