Lung cancer is the most common form of cancer in terms of incidence and number of deaths. It is a disease wherein the cell lining of lung tissue grows uncontrollably and leads to the formation of tumor. There are two main types of lung cancer; small cell lung cancer that accounts for about 20% and non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) that accounts for about 80% of the total lung cancers.

The lung cancer drugs market was valued at around $4 billion in 2010 and is expected to reach about $13 billion by 2020, growing at a CAGR of 13.5% from 2015 to 2020. The market was dominated by drugs such as Avastin, Iressa, Gemzar, and Tarceva in 2010. However, by 2020, the market is expected to be dominated by talactoferrin (Agennix), an immunomodulatory drug; followed by Xalkori (Pfizer), and by ARQ 197 (ArQule/Daiichi Sankyo).

According to WHO, lung cancer prevalence is expected to grow in the emerging markets such as the BRIC countries and other Asian and African markets due to an increase in the use of tobacco products. Tobacco is the primary cause of around 80% of all lung cancers. The other causes such as radon gas exposure, asbestos can be causative factor for developing lung cancer.

The U.S. dominates the lung cancer drug market in North America with 93.5% share; whereas Germany dominates the market of Europe with 32.4% share.
