Nigeria Oncology Therapeutics Market Analysis Summary

By 2030, it is anticipated that the Nigeria Oncology Therapeutics Market will reach a value of $335 Mn from $163 Mn in 2022, growing at a CAGR of 9.4% during 2022-30.

Nigeria is a lower middle-income, developing country located in West Africa with a coast on the Gulf of Guinea and the Atlantic Ocean. Cancer has stayed at the top of the list of diseases that are indiscriminately diminishing people's welfare and health all over the world, especially in developing countries like Nigeria. Cancer kills approximately 80,000 individuals in Nigeria each year, and by 2030, low-middle-income nations like Nigeria will account for 70% of the 13 Mn cancer fatalities anticipated globally.

Nigeria now has an estimated 233,911 cancer cases, with 124,815 new cases and 78,899 cancer deaths each year. Nigeria currently has less than 90 oncologists. Nigeria's government spent 3.4% of its GDP on healthcare in 2020.

Nigeria Oncology Therapeutics Market Analysis

Market Dynamics

Market Growth Drivers

Organizations such as the Nigerian Cancer Society and the Lagos State University Teaching Hospital have launched campaigns to educate the public about cancer risk factors, symptoms, and prevention. In 2018, the federal government released the Cancer Control Plan, a four-year programme with the goal of reducing cancer incidence and prevalence over the next five years and beyond. These aspects could boost Nigeria's Oncology Therapeutics Market.

Market restraints

According to the World Health Organization, Nigeria's population of 170 Mn requires at least 170 cancer centres. Nigeria currently has approximately 9 centres, far fewer than the required number. There is no well-coordinated cancer registry in Nigeria or any other West African country. Despite being operational, the capability of the Nigerian National System of Cancer Registries is limited due to logistical, legal, and intermittent funding challenges. In Nigeria, where around 10,000 cancer fatalities are registered each year and 250,000 new cases are recorded each year, there is a lack of or ineffective governmental policy on cancer concerns.

People in Nigeria are usually uninformed of cancer's early warning signals and risk factors. The national health budgetary allocation for 2022 is less than 6%, even though politicians continue to take capital flight for medical treatment abroad, depleting the country's foreign reserves and exacerbating the medical tourism problem, which costs more than $1 billion annually. These factors may deter new entrants into the Nigeria Oncology Therapeutics Market.
