Global Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer Therapeutics in Major Developed Markets 2015-2021 - NSCLC market will be valued at $10.9 billion in 2021, growing from $6.1 billion in 2014 at a CAGR of 8.5%

DUBLIN, Nov. 12, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of the "Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer Therapeutics in Major Developed Markets to 2021 - Emergence of Immunotherapies Drives Market Growth and Creates A Competitive Second-Line" report to their offering.

Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer (NSCLC) is the second most common cancer globally, and the most common cause of cancer-related mortality. Such a poor outlook, particularly for patients with advanced disease, has created a pressing need for improved therapeutic options. The NSCLC market is undergoing a gradual change from a focus on generic chemotherapy regimens to complex treatment landscape based on different NSCLC subtypes and the presence of various molecular aberrations.

In the current market, patients with non-squamous histology can be treated with more efficacious therapies such as Alimta (pemetrexed), while patients harboring activating mutations in EGFR or ALK can be prescribed targeted therapy. While the NSCLC developmental pipeline must aim to improve the outlook for all patients, there is currently a lack of options for patients with squamous cell histology or other detectable molecular characteristics besides EFGR and ALK mutations.
