Key Market Trends

Lung Cancer Segment is Expected to Hold a Major Market Share During the Forecast Period

Lung cancer is caused by the uncontrolled growth of abnormal cells that multiply in one lung or both lungs. Although it can affect people who never smoked, people who smoke have the highest risk of lung cancer. The changing lifestyle and increasing air pollution in the country are also found to be the major risk factors for lung cancer.

As per the American Cancer Society’s report, the new cases of lung cancer in the United States for 2018 were around 234,030, and about 154,050 deaths were recorded due to lung cancer. According to the American Lung Association, approximately 541,000 Americans living today have been diagnosed with lung cancer at some point in their lives. The majority of lung cancer patients have been diagnosed within the last five years. Every year, around tens of thousands of people, are cured of non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) in the United States. Hence with the increasing burden of lung cancer, the market is expected to show high growth.
