The NSCLC market in Asia Pacific was pegged at $2.7 bn in 2015 and is predicted to touch $4.9 bn in 2022, by expanding at an 8.70% CAGR between 2015 and 2022. The introduction section of the report starts by presenting the disease overview including the epidemiology and symptoms. Non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) is the most common kind of lung cancer – 85% of lung cancers globally are reportedly NSCLCs. Adenocarcinoma, large cell carcinoma, and squamous cell carcinoma are the key sub-types of NSCLC. As a class, this type of cancer is relatively insensitive to chemotherapy as compared to small cell cancer.

NSCLC is primarily treated by utilizing surgical resection coupled with curative intent. However, pre-operatively and post-operatively, chemotherapy is also being utilized for treating this type of cancer. Globally, over 50% of the cases of NSCLC are diagnosed in individuals who are more than 65 years old. As stated in the report, the poor prognosis, especially in patients with advanced disease, has resulted in the growing requirement for enhanced therapeutic options in the region of Asia Pacific.
