Although the malignant melanoma market has become increasingly crowded, an evolving trend of combining drug classes to create novel therapies is expanding treatment options for patients. While both the resectable and metastatic settings are heavily dominated by immune checkpoint inhibitors, such as market-leading Bristol-Myers Squibb / Ono Pharmaceutical’s Yervoy and Opdivo, and Merck & Co.’s Keytruda, opportunities remain for novel agents specifically targeting the underpenetrated BRAF wild-type unresectable or metastatic setting. With the expected introduction of novel agents for later lines, the malignant melanoma treatment algorithm will continue to evolve. In such a dynamic indication, marketed drugs need to be carefully positioned to achieve optimal uptake.

Questions Answered:

  • How large are the clinically and commercially relevant malignant melanoma drug-treatable populations? Will drug treatment rates increase over the forecast period?
  • What is the current treatment landscape in malignant melanoma? Which currently approved drugs are the most important and why?
  • Which drugs in late-phase development are poised to change the treatment landscape for malignant melanoma and how? What sales / uptake could these drugs secure in the malignant melanoma market?
  • What are the key drivers and constraints in the malignant melanoma market, and how will the market evolve over the forecast period?
