Of the four subtypes of non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma (NHL), diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL) is the most common in China. Rituximab (Roche’s MabThera, biosimilars) continues to dominate China’s NHL market owing to its favorable and well-established clinical profile, particularly as part of the R-CHOP chemotherapy regimen. However, novel targeted therapies that we expect will launch in the next few years will challenge rituximab’s market dominance. These therapies will expand the Chinese NHL therapy market significantly during the forecast period, despite the launch of cost-effective biosimilars and generics of rituximab and lenalidomide, respectively, starting in 2019. The high unmet need for effective targeted therapies for NHL in China presents solid commercial opportunity for developers. Additionally, the ongoing reforms in China’s regulatory and access and reimbursement landscape will encourage multinational corporations to enter the market.
