HER2+ Breast Cancer Global Drug Forecast and Market Analysis to 2030 - ResearchAndMarkets.com

DUBLIN--()--The "HER2+ Breast Cancer - Global Drug Forecast and Market Analysis to 2030" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.

Breast cancer is the second most common cancer in the world and the most common cancer in women worldwide. Human epidermal growth factor receptor 2-positive (HER2+) breast cancer constitutes approximately 20% of breast cancer cases and was historically associated with poor prognosis in the absence of effective treatments. The realization that introducing HER2-targeted therapies earlier into the disease management strategy could improve disease-free survival (DFS) has created a large market for HER2-directed therapies. Today, HER2+ breast cancer patients are living longer with their disease, thanks to established disease management strategies using regimens with Herceptin, Perjeta, and the antibody-drug conjugate Kadcyla.

During the forecast period 2020-2030, each of these agents are expected to face patent expiries and biosimilar erosion, which will represent the biggest barrier of market growth to date. To combat biosimilar erosion, Roche/Genentech is developing subcutaneous fixed-dose formulations of Herceptin/Perjeta to provide convenience for patients and physicians. This will act to consolidate revenues for Roche/Genentech and maintain their presence as market leader throughout the forecast period.

Daiichi Sankyo and AstraZeneca's agent, Enhertu is expected to make a large impact of clinical practice by replacing Kadcyla in the second-line metastatic setting and threatening it's patient share in the adjuvant setting.

The publisher anticipates 5 pipeline agents to be launched across the 8MM over the forecast period 2020-2030. The HER2+ market is forecast to grow to $12.1B by 2030, at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 1.5%.

This report covers opportunities for various marketed agents and pipeline agents in development across the 8MM, clinical and commercial assessments for agents in late-stage clinical development, R&D strategies, and innovative approaches in development for HER2+ breast cancer. This edition provides an update to the previous sales forecast for marketed and pipeline agents and highlights expected market dynamics by country and class of therapy across the forecast period, 2020-2030.

Key Questions Answered

  • 5 late-stage pipeline agents are going to enter the HER2+ market from 2020 onwards. Will the impact will these agents have on the market? Which of these drugs will have the highest peak sales, and why?
