Bladder cancer is the eighth most diagnosed kind of cancer in China. The bladder cancer therapy market will experience rapid growth over the forecast period, fueled by one of the most robust drug-development pipelines in oncology. Notably, the biggest market driver will be the anticipated approval of multiple immune checkpoint inhibitors from both multinational corporations and domestic companies; these agents will transform the treatment paradigm. Additionally, biomarker-driven therapies—Janssen’s Balversa for patients harboring FGFR mutations—are becoming increasingly attractive, and many new therapies, such as Padcev, MRG002, APL102, and sasanlimab, are expected to be approved during the forecast period, resulting in the availability of more-effective treatments for urothelial carcinoma. In this report, we explore how unmet need, pricing, coverage, and regulatory reforms in the A&R landscape of China will impact the success of current and future players in this highly lucrative market.
