About B-Cell Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma Market

Non-Hodgkins lymphoma (NHL) comprises a heterogeneous group of lymphoproliferative malignancies that arise in the B cells, T cells, or natural killer (NK) cells within the lymphoid tissue, such as the lymph nodes, bone marrow, thymus, and spleen. NHLs are further categorized into indolent or aggressive prognostic subtypes, which further influence the outcomes and treatment decisions. Patients diagnosed with indolent NHLs (follicular lymphoma [FL] or marginal zone lymphoma [MZL]) can achieve a median survival of 10 to 20 years, and relative 10-year survival rates of over 60%. However, patients with aggressive NHLs (diffuse large B-cell lymphoma [DLBCL] or mantle cell lymphoma [MCL]) can generally expect lower median survival rates, with the relative 10-year survival reported to be less than 50%.

For the purposes of this report, GlobalData focuses on the four most prevalent B-cell NHL subtypes: FL, MZL, DLBCL and MCL. The global market is defined to include sales of drugs aimed at treatment of those four subtypes in patients 30 years and older across the 7MM, which is comprised of the US, 5EU (France, Germany, Italy, Spain, and the UK), and Japan. The forecast includes the sale of agents in first-line, relapsed/refractory, and maintenance settings. GlobalData anticipates a major driver of market growth to be the steady increase in uptake of Imbruvica to treat MCL, and its anticipated expansion into FL, MZL, and DLBCL treatment settings over the forecast period.


Key Questions Answered

- Based on interviews with key opinion leaders (KOLs), GlobalData has identified the major unmet needs in the NHL marketplace. Will the leading pipeline agents fulfil these unmet needs during the forecast period (2014-2024)?

- What research and development (R&D) strategies will companies leverage to compete in the future NHL marketplace?

- Which pipeline products are poised to make a major clinical and commercial impact?

- What clinical and commercial factors are likely to influence NHL drug uptake in the US and 5EU (France, Germany, Italy, Spain, and the UK) and Japan (7MM)?

Key Findings

- GlobalData projects the NHL market in the 7MM to experience modest growth from approximately $4.82bn in 2014 to a little under $5.5bn in 2024, at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 1.0%. This growth will be fueled by the launch of the premium-priced drug Imbruvica in the DLBCL first-line and relapsed/refractory settings. In addition Revlimid is expected to launch in multiple indications across indolent and aggressive NHL, along with Zydelig, Gazyva, and other novel pipeline products.

- Primary and secondary research indicates that Imbruvica and Revlimid will experience rapid uptake due to high KOL enthusiasm and promising clinical efficacy results reported thus far. Furthermore, the ability to combine these agents with standard backbone therapies will aid in their uptake.

- GlobalData anticipates the launch of generic bendamustine and generic lenalidomide, along with biosimilar rituximab, at various times in the different markets during the forecast period. The arrival of those products, in combination with the stringent pricing and reimbursement criteria in the 5EU, will act as major barriers to global NHL market growth.
