According to the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) April 2018 publication, every year, more than 700 children get diagnosed with neuroblastoma in the US and it is also indicated that neuroblastoma is the most common cancer in children younger than 1 year. It is more commonly found in boys compare to girls. The increasing cases of childhood cancer boost market growth during the forecast period.
The global neuroblastoma treatment market size is anticipated to hold a market value of 2.60 billion in 2017 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 3.7% during the forecast period. Neuroblastoma is a childhood cancer most commonly occurs in children below the age of 5 years. The neuroblast may cause due to the immature cell growth or mutation in the gene responsible for controlling cell proliferation. The increasing cases of childhood cancer, rising research on neuroblastoma treatment and increasing spending on cancer treatment is expected to drive market growth over the forecast period.
Despite the drivers, shortage of trained healthcare specialists and the high cost of this therapy can restrain the market growth over the assessment period.

Geographically, the Americas is expected to dominate the global neuroblastoma market owing to the presence of well-developed healthcare sector, rising prevalence of infant cancer cases, and growing expenditure for the healthcare sector. Europe is expected to hold the second largest position in the global neuroblastoma market owing to the growing number of child healthcare centers for cancer treatment and raising awareness about the treatment for neuroblastoma.
