The global hemangioblastoma market is expected to grow at the rate of 6.1% during the forecast period (2018–2023)

Hemangioblastoma is a type of brain tumor, it is rare and slow growing disease. Uncontrolled growth occurs in the cell linings of blood vessels and it leads to a tumor. The disease-causing factor is unknown, but it is more likely to affect people with von Hippel-Lindau disease history or it can be sporadically. The growing awareness about cancer, increasing number of tumor surgeries, growing demand for advanced therapies and increasing healthcare expenditure are expected to drive the growth of the market. According to National Center for Biotechnology Information, US National Library of Medicine, 80% cases of hemangioblastoma are sporadic, whereas 20 to 25% develop in the context of Von Hippel–Lindau disease and it accounts for 7 to 10% of total brain tumor cases.

The rising cost of tumor treatment and scarcity of experts may hamper the growth of the market during the assessment period.
