Gastrointestinal Stromal Tumors Market Is Poised for an Explosive CAGR Of ~7.0 % Through The Forecast Period 2017-2023

Market Research Future with their unique quality of simplifying the market research study, announces a deep study report on “Gastrointestinal Stromal Tumors Market Research Report- Forecast To 2023” Gives industry size, top players and worldwide demand

Market Scenario:

A Gastrointestinal Stromal Tumor (GIST) is a type of tumor which occurs in the gastrointestinal tract and most commonly in the stomach or small intestine. These tumors grow from specialized cells found in the gastrointestinal tract called Interstitial Cells of Cajal (ICC) or precursors to these cells. GIST affects an estimated 11 to 20 patients per million per year worldwide.

The global gastrointestinal stromal tumors market is expected to gain prominence over the forecast period (2018–2023). It is estimated that the global gastrointestinal stromal tumors market is expected to register at a CAGR ~ 7 % during the forecast period of 2018–2023.

GISTs are rare cancers known as soft tissue sarcomas. These tissue sarcomas develop in supporting and connective tissues. These GIST accounts for around 20% of soft tissue sarcomas and is the most common mesenchymal tumors affecting the gastrointestinal tract. Treatment of GIST is largely dependent on the size of the tumor, position, and development rate, and is most commonly removed through the procedure of surgical resection and targeted therapies.

The growth of this market is due to increasing prevalence of gastrointestinal diseases, increasing the prevalence of cancer, increasing investments and funding in the field of life science research, increasing awareness among the people, growing geriatric population, changing reimbursement policies and various others.

However, one of the major factors that hampered the growth of the gastrointestinal stromal tumors is the presence of misbranded and spurious drugs.
