Market Overview

Lung Cancer is the lethal lung tumor portrayed by the undisciplined growth of cells in the lung tissues. Cigarette smoking is the principal risk factor for the development of lung cancer. Prolonged exposure to tobacco smoke can also cause lung cancer. The interpretation of lung cancer is confirmed by biopsy which is carried out using bronchoscopy or CT-guidance. Therefore the treatment of lung cancer can be done by chemotherapy, radiotherapy, immunotherapy, surgery, etc.

In addition, the increasing funding in the field of research and development of new drugs, increasing pollution due to rapid industrialization and rise in the number of smokers are some of the reasons for the increasing prevalence of lung cancer. Hence all these factors have been driving the growth of the market. However, side effects of drug therapies and high cost of the therapies have been restraining the market growth.

Scope of the Report

Lung cancer or lung carcinoma is a disease characterized by uncontrolled cell growth in the lungs. Common symptoms includes the cough, chest pain, weight loss, and shortness of breath. Due an increase in the incidence of lung cancer, the global lung cancer therapeutics market is expected to expand at a rapid pace. Lung Cancer therapeutic drugs and surgery are therapies that are aimed to diminish, stunt, destroy, or kill, the cancerous growth and cells in the lungs.

Key Market Trends

Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer (NSCLC) Therapy is Expected to Dominate the Market

There are different types of primary lung cancer and they are divided into Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer (NSCLC) and Small Cell Lung Cancer (SCLC). Among the 2 types of lung cancer, NSCLC is more prevalent. According to Cancer Research 2017 data, about 87% of the lung cancers in the UK are NSCLC. Lung cancer is also one of the most common types of cancer. As per American Society of Clinical Oncology 2019 report, lung cancer makes up about 13% of all new cancer diagnoses.

The global prevalence of cancer is increasing as per a Cancer Research UK report. The report suggests that the population suffering from cancer is expected to increase in the future. As per the report, if recent trends in the incidence of major cancers and population growth are consistent, it is predicted there will be 27.5 million new cancer cases worldwide each year by 2040. This is an increase of 61.7% from 2018 (17 million).

Hence as the cases of cancer increase, the incidence of NSCLC is also expected to increase. This will increase the demand for Lung cancer therapeutics, which will helap the market growth.

Lung Cancer Therapeutics Market

North America is Expected to Dominate the Lung Cancer Therapeutics Market

As per American Society of Clinical Oncology 2019 report, an estimated 228,150 adults (116,440 men and 111,710 women) in the United States (US) were expected to be diagnosed with lung cancer. Lung cancer makes up about 13% of all new cancer diagnoses. Lung cancer is the second most common cancer and the leading cause of cancer death for men and women in the US. The report estimated that 142,670 (76,650 men and 66,020 women) deaths from this disease will occur in the year 2019.

However, the North American countries like United States (US) and Canada have a developed and well-structured health care system. These systems also encourage research and development. These policies encourage global players to enter the US and Canada. As a result, these countries enjoy the presence of many global market players. As high demand is met by the presence of global players in the region, the market is further expected to increase.

Lung Cancer Therapeutics Market

Competitive Landscape

Majority of the lung cancer therapeutics are being manufactured by the global key players. Market leaders with more funds for research and better distribution system have established their position in the market. Moreover, Asia-pacific is witnessing an emergence of some small players due to the rise of awareness. This has also helped the market grow.
