Non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC)—the leading cause of cancer-related deaths in China—has a highly dynamic drug development pipeline, with multiple targeted and biomarker-driven therapies. Notably, many targeted therapies are intended for patients with activating EGFR mutations, which are more prevalent in China than in the Western markets. We expect the China NSCLC therapy market to experience robust growth throughout the 2019-2029 forecast period. The key driver of this market growth will be the continued uptake of targeted therapies, including immune checkpoint inhibitors, EGFR inhibitors, following the incorporation of several therapies into China’s National Reimbursement Drug List, thereby securing access to patients. Moreover, newer targeted therapies are expected be approved within the forecast period, which will result in increased therapy options and market growth.

QUESTIONS ANSWERED

  • How large is China’s drug-treatable NSCLC population, and how will drug-treatment rates change during the forecast period?
  • Which are the most commercially relevant drugs in China’s NSCLC market and why? What are interviewed experts’ insights into current treatment options?
  • What are the key market access considerations for therapies in the NSCLC pipeline in China? What sales/uptake could they secure in NSCLC? What are interviewed experts’ opinions of key emerging therapies?
  • What are the key drivers and constraints in the China NSCLC therapy market, and how will the market evolve over the forecast period?

Akash is a Principal Analyst in the China In-Depth team at Decision Resources Group. Since 2016, he has specialized in a range of indications including rare disease indications such as DMD, ALS, ITP, IPF, JIA, and retinitis pigmentosa. He has authored Disease Landscape & Forecast reports, Access & Reimbursement reports, and Treatment Algorithm reports based on primary market research and real-world evidence. Prior to joining DRG, Akash was a post-doctoral fellow at the University of Massachusetts Medical School. He has a Ph.D. from the International Centre for Genetic Engineering and Biotechnology, New Delhi.

Atul Sharma started working in Decision Resources Group as an intern in early 2016 and currently works as an associate epidemiologist. He performs fully documented systematic reviews of both published and grey literature on the epidemiology of assigned diseases and their risk factors to estimate incidence/prevalence over a 10-30 year period. He produces analyses for pharmaceutical drug developers on the descriptive epidemiology of major drug indications in mature and developing markets.

He holds a Master’s in Public Health degree from School of Public Health, Post-Graduate Institute of Medical Education and Research and a Bachelor’s in dental surgery from MN DAV Dental College & Hospital.
