Non-Small-Cell Lung Cancer | Disease Landscape and Forecast | G7 | 2019

Non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC) is one of the most dynamic oncology indications and a key area of focus for drug developers. Immune checkpoint inhibitors have transformed the management of advanced NSCLC. In late 2018, Tecentriq (Roche / Genentech / Chugai) was the second immune checkpoint inhibitor to enter the coveted first-line metastatic setting, after Keytruda (Merck & Co.). Competition is set to intensify as multiple combination therapies based on immune checkpoint inhibition gain approval and enter the clinic. In addition, novel biomarker-driven therapies such as next-generation EGFR and ALK inhibitors are vying for a share of this increasingly crowded and competitive market.

Questions Answered

  • How large are the drug-treatable NSCLC populations, and how will drug-treatment rates change over time in market-relevant populations?
  • How will recent and expected market approvals shape the uptake of immune checkpoint inhibitors for the first-line treatment of metastatic NSCLC? Which agents and combinations will dominate this commercially lucrative disease setting?
  • What pipeline products are most promising, and what uptake and sales could they secure in NSCLC? What therapies of note are progressing in earlier phases of development?
  • What are the key market drivers and constraints in NSCLC, and how will the market evolve over the forecast period?
