Cancer cachexia refers to a multifactorial, phagocytic host wasting syndrome characterized by systematic inflammation, involuntary loss of lean body mass, negative protein balance, loss of appetite, and muscle atrophy. It is due to the occurrence of various chronic diseases, including tuberculosis (TB), multiple sclerosis, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). Cancer cachexia can be treated with a variety of treatments, such as progestins, corticosteroids, and combination therapies. Among these, a progestogen is a synthetic or natural steroid hormone that improves appetite and promotes weight gain, while a corticosteroid helps reduce inflammation and suppress overactive immune systems.

The increasing prevalence of cancer and cachexia, especially among growing geriatric populations, is facilitating the demand for advanced therapeutic treatments and drugs, which in turn, are mainly driving the growth of the market. This is further supported by growing consumer awareness regarding the availability of new therapeutic drugs to treat cancer cachexia.

Moreover, the changing inclination of patients towards combination therapies to improve lean body mass (LBM) through pharmacological, non-pharmacological therapies and clinical trials acts as another growth inducing factor. In this light, the extensive use of several appetite stimulants such as megestrol acetate, dexamethasone, and methylprednisolone to improve digestion is also contributing to the growth of the market.

Additionally, significant technological advancements that focus on the development of effective drugs for the treatment of cancer cachexia further propel the growth of the market. Apart from this, the many supportive initiatives undertaken by government agencies of various countries and Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs) to create awareness among the people about the causes of cancer cachexia, their symptoms and the benefits of using advanced treatments create a positive outlook for the market.
