Bladder Cancer And Upper Tract Urothelial Carcinoma – Geographic Focus: China – Bladder Cancer – China In-Depth (China)

Bladder cancer is the eighth most commonly diagnosed cancer in China. The bladder cancer therapy market is set to enter a competitive and dynamic period of rapid growth, fueled by one of the most robust drug-development pipelines in oncology. Notably, the biggest driver of market sales will be the anticipated approvals of immune checkpoint inhibitors from both multinational corporations and domestic companies; these agents will transform treatment. Biomarker-driven therapies are becoming increasingly attractive, highlighted by the development of Xian Janssen’s Balversa for patients harboring FGFR mutations, and are expected to gain approval during the forecast period, resulting in better treatment options for metastatic patients. Additionally, in view of the ongoing reforms in China’s regulatory and access and reimbursement landscape, multinational companies will be increasingly encouraged to enter the bladder cancer market.
