India's Non-Small-Cell Lung Cancer Drug Market Will Almost Double by 2013
Date:5/13/2009

Western Branded Drug Sales Will Command 54 percent of the Market by 2013, According to a New Report from Decision Resources

WALTHAM, Mass., May 13 /PRNewswire/ -- Decision Resources, one of the world's leading research and advisory firms focusing on pharmaceutical and healthcare issues, finds that the non-small-cell lung cancer drug market in India will almost double by 2013, growing from $27.7 million in 2008 to $52.1 million in 2013. This growth will be fueled by an increased uptake of antimetabolites and targeted therapies. In fact, the epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) and vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) inhibitor drug classes will dominate the market throughout the forecast period with a combined market share of 55 percent by 2013.

The new Emerging Markets report entitled Non-Small-Cell Lung Cancer in India also finds that Western-branded drug sales in India's non-small-cell lung cancer market will command 54 percent by 2013. Even though Western-branded small-molecule agents are facing fierce competition from domestic products, including gefitinib (in the U.S. known as AstraZeneca's Iressa) and erlotinib (in the U.S. known as Genentech's Tarceva), future opportunities for Western companies will depend heavily on their pricing strategies and their patent protection in India. Moreover, monoclonal antibodies will surge and won't be copied successfully during the report's 2008 - 2013 forecast period.

"Opportunity for Western companies penetrating or wanting to penetrate India's non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC) drug market lies in forming alliances with Indian companies in order to negotiate the complex regulatory process of getting new NSCLC therapies to market," stated Manashi Sherawat, Ph.D., analyst at Decision Resources. "Opportunity also lies in raising awareness of this form of cancer in India's urban and rural sectors."
