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.
