There were over 2 million new cases in 2018, globally. Furthermore, according to the World Health Organization (WHO) report of 2018, it is estimated that 627,000 women died from breast cancer in 2018, worldwide.

Major players in the market are focused on launching anastrozole tablets in the market at low cost to gain maximum market share, which is expected to drive the anastrozole tablets market growth.

For instance, in May 2019, Zydus Pharmaceuticals USA Inc. announced that it voluntarily recalled multiple lots of anastrozole tablets (1mg) at retail level. The product is under investigation by the U.S. FDA. The reason of drug recall was cross contamination due to a GMP cleaning procedure failure in the fluid bed dry processor area during the manufacturing time. Zydus Pharmaceuticals USA Inc. advised all the distributors to stop dispensing, which rapidly impeded growth of the anastrozole tablets market in 2019.
