HER2-positive breast cancer is the second most common cancer in the world and the most common cancer in women worldwide. Today, HER2-positive breast cancer patients are living longer with their disease, thanks to established disease management strategies using numerous combinations of chemotherapy with Herceptin, Perjeta, and the tyrosine kinase inhibitor (TKI) Tykerb (lapatinib). During the forecast period from 2015-2025, GlobalData expects that the HER2-positive market will grow due to the launch of HER2-targeted agents in the early disease setting and the aging populations in the US, 5EU (France, Germany, Italy, Spain, and the UK), Japan, and China.
Following the patent expiry of Herceptin and the subsequent highly anticipated introduction of trastuzumab biosimilars during the forecast period, the market is expected to face its biggest barrier to growth to date. Despite a lack of game-changing innovation in the HER2-positive market, the pipeline is diverse with several agents being investigated in the extended adjuvant and metastatic settings. A number of these agents are looking to address the greatest unmet need for HER2-positive breast cancer patients-brain metastases-which typically occur in the later lines of metastatic therapy and are caused by increasingly resistant disease.
