Breast cancer is the second most common cancer in the world overall, and the most common cancer in women. When diagnosed at a very early stage, the prognosis is positive, with a five-year survival rate of nearly 90%. However, in the later stages of the disease, the survival rate rapidly decreases. HER2-positive breast cancer is an aggressive disease, and historically has had a worse overall survival (OS) than HER2-negative disease, which is considered less aggressive.

The current marketed drug landscape in breast cancer includes a mix of targeted therapies, chemotherapies, and hormonal agents. Metastatic breast cancer is not considered a curable disease, and in the course of therapy patients can receive up to three lines of endocrine agents and four or more lines of chemotherapy, as well as targeted therapies for earlier lines of therapy – often in no particular sequence.

Hormone therapy is the mainstay of treatment for patients with HR-positive disease, but triple-negative breast cancer (TNBC) patients who lack HR expression are normally treated with generic chemotherapies. This is because there are no approved targeted therapies currently available in the TNBC setting. The HER2-positive breast cancer market is dominated by the HER2-targeting mAb Herceptin, the most established drug in this disease area.

Herceptin is used in nearly all settings of HER2-positive breast cancer and in all markets accessed in this report, as it was demonstrated to significantly improve the OS of women with this disease type. The current breast cancer pipeline is demonstrative of strong innovation in cancer overall, and a significant number of new drug launches are expected during the forecast period.

This is likely to have a significant impact on the competitive landscape, particularly in the early lines of metastatic disease. The emergence of novel biomarkers will also impact treatment decisions for TNBC patients, and will provide new options for targeted therapy in this patient population, fulfilling a long-standing unmet need. One of the key drivers of the breast cancer therapeutics market in the APAC region is the increase in patient volume.

It is also expected to be driven by the anticipated approval of promising therapies within several distinct patient segments, as well as the growing market uptake of already approved therapies in the APAC markets.

Although several branded drugs are expected to go off patent during the forecast period, the impact of this on the market will be offset by the launch of upcoming therapies such as Verzenio, Lynparza, Nerlynx, talazoparib, alpelisib, taselisib, Keytruda, Tecentriq, margetuximab and ipatasertib, and the increasing uptake of already approved therapy such as Ibrance, Kadcyla, Perjeta and Kisqali.
