US Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer (NSCLC) - Drug Forecast and Market Analysis to 2025

Press Release   •   Jan 16, 2017 06:03 EST

Lung cancer is currently is the most common cause of death from cancer worldwide. Of total lung cancer incident cases, approximately 85% are the non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) subtype. NSCLC patients are usually diagnosed in the later stages of the disease, with poor prognosis. Historically, treatment options for advanced-stage NSCLC patients have been dominated by chemotherapy. However, the launch of targeted therapies such as Iressa (gefitinib) in 2003, Tarceva (erlotinib) in 2004, and Xalkori (crizotinib) in 2011, has shifted the treatment landscape towards personalized medicine.

As a drug class, immunotherapeutics are projected to contribute the most to the US market expansion. As a result, both these drug classes are expected to take patient share away from branded chemotherapy, a class that will contract as a whole at a negative CAGR of 18.4%. The growth of the IO drug class will be fueled by the increasing use of immunotherapies across histologies and lines of therapy in NSCLC. The use of PD-1 checkpoint inhibitors in first-line therapy of NSCLC is expected to take away significant sales from conventional chemotherapies that are typically used in the first line.
