Parp Inhibitors Market Overview

The PARP inhibitors market is estimated to be worth $8 billion in 2030 and is expected to grow at CAGR of 18% during the forecast period. Cancer is known to be one of the leading causes of death worldwide.

In the US, 0.6 million deaths ( were reported to have been caused due to cancer in 2018 alone. Further, according to the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), close to 17 million new cancer cases were reported in 2018, worldwide. By 2040, it is estimated that the aforementioned number is likely to grow to 27.5 million. It is worth mentioning that in the past five years, the United States Food and Drug Administration (USFDA) ( has approved more than 100 drugs for the treatment of different types of cancer. However, as the growing global population is gradually being exposed to a growing list of risk factors and cancer causing agents, there is a pressing need for more specific and potent drugs / therapies to combat this complex, life threatening clinical condition. Over time, conventional treatment options, such as chemotherapy, surgery and radiation therapy, have shown limited efficacy in treating late-stage cancers. In addition, the non-specific and highly toxic nature of these therapies have severe detrimental effects on patients’ quality of life.

Defects in deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) repair have been shown to be one of the primary causes of cancer. Moreover, tumor cells that are characterized by impaired DNA repair pathways typically become reliant on alternative DNA repair pathways for survival. This phenomenon is commonly referred to as oncogene addiction.  Inhibitors of such compensatory repair pathways have the potential to sensitize cancer cells to DNA damaging agents and other therapeutic regimens. On the other hand, the simultaneous inactivation of certain pairs of genes have been shown to cause cell death. This phenomenon is known as synthetic lethality. In cancers, where mutations have led to the loss of function of one gene, using a drug molecule that specifically targets the corresponding gene of the synlet pair has been demonstrated to be a viable and effective therapeutic regimen. Recent advances in biomarker research, including the development of companion diagnostics, in combination with modern molecular screening platforms, which include clustered regularly interspaced short palindromic repeats (CRISPR)- and RNA interference (RNAi)-based screening techniques (, have led to the identification of a number of synthetically lethal gene pairs.

Currently, there are four approved (and marketed) poly-ADP ribose polymerase (PARP) inhibitor drugs, which have been shown to operate based on the concept of synthetic lethality. Further, several such parp inhibitors drugs are being investigated for the treatment of a myriad of advanced oncological and non-oncological indications. A number of companies are engaged in PARP inhibitors market; moreover, both venture capital (VC) firms and government bodies are actively funding such research initiatives.
