Small Cell Lung Cancer Therapeutics Market Analysis
Small Cell Lung Cancer Therapeutics Market - Global Industry Insights, Trends, Outlook, and Opportunity Analysis, 2018-2026
Small Cell Lung Cancer (SCLC) is malignant form of cancer arising within the lungs. SCLC is characterized by high growth rate, shorter doubling time than the non-small cell lung tumors. SCLC is more responsive to chemotherapy than NSCLC. Small cell lung cancer is highly associated with tobacco, unhealthy food, alcohol, HIV infected, chronic infections or related family history, and physical inactivity. The decrease in smoking is reflected as the substantial decrease in the incidence of SCLC. The symptoms include dyspnea, blood in sputum, weight loss, cough, and debility.
Global rise in number of cancer cases expected to support the growth of small cell lung cancer therapeutics market in the near future
According to the American Cancer Society Statistics in 2016, maximum cases of SCLC occur in individuals aged 60-80 years with an estimated global death rate being 30,000 per year. Also, according to the World Health Organization (WHO), lung cancer is the second most prevailing cancer in men and women causing 1.59 million deaths in 2012. The rising prevalence of lung cancer, rise in unhealthy lifestyle, the launch of innovative radiation therapies, and premium priced drugs are the major factors driving the growth of lung cancer therapeutics market. Additionally, rising demand for targeted therapies and platinum-based chemotherapies is likely to have an optimistic impact on the small lung cancer therapeutics market in the forecast period. Also, increasing diagnostic facilities by the government, provision of guidelines to cancer patients by International Healthcare Organizations are the major factors contributing to the rising of small cell lung cancer market. However, expensive treatments, lack of awareness leading to late diagnosis are the major factors restraining the small cell lung cancer market growth.
Platinum derivatives segment accounts for highest revenue share owing to the higher metastasis control rate
