The main factors propelling the global small cell lung cancer therapeutics market are the increasing need for personalised therapy, the accessibility of extremely effective drugs, the rising elderly population, and the prevalence of unhealthy habits. The potential for growth in the Small Cell Lung Cancer Medicines Market is fueled by the introduction of nanomedicine to treat lung cancer as well as the rising number of permits for lung cancer therapeutics. Additional factors contributing to the rising prevalence of lung cancer include greater funding for research and the development of novel treatments, increased pollution as a result of rapid industrialisation, and an increase in the number of smokers.

The second most common malignancies in both men and women, according to the American Cancer Society 2022, are SCLC and NSCLC. Over 25% of all cancer-related deaths are caused by lung cancer, which is possibly the leading cause of cancer death in both men and women. In addition, the survivorship rate has increased by 14.5 percent nationally over the last five years, according to the American Lung Association's 2021 report, even though the ailment continues to be the leading cause of cancer death in men and women. However, the unfavourable side effects of pharmaceutical therapy, bad reactions, and the astronomical costs of such medicines have prevented the market from growing.

Small Cell Lung Cancer Therapeutics Market growth is being fueled by the rise in cancer awareness in both emerging and developed nations, as well as the introduction of cutting-edge medical diagnostic tools and better therapies. This, along with increased R&D spending by top corporations, is aiding in the expansion of the global market. As lung cancer incidence increases, there is a greater emphasis placed on R&D initiatives, which is the main factor driving the market change. The world continues to be at risk from COVID-19, particularly for those who already have lung diseases.

Key Drivers

The expected approval and introduction of 10 pipeline medicines (the majority of which will be introduced in China) as well as improved market access for expensive drugs across the 8MM are the primary drivers of growth. The paucity of predictive biomarkers and the consequent lack of focused approaches in the treatment paradigm are the key obstacles to growth in the 8MM. a change in the standard of care from using low-cost generic chemotherapies to a combination of chemotherapy and immunotherapy, which has greater costs. The following are the top unmet needs in the SCLC market: Lack of effective treatments due to a limited understanding of the biology behind SCLC, particularly in the context of relapsed/refractory disease.

According to the World Health Organization (WHO), 8.2 million people died from cancer around the world in 2012, and cancer is now one of the leading causes of death. Lung cancer is the leading cancer type and caused 1.59 million deaths in 2012.

Small cell lung cancer is two types

  • Oat cancer
  • Combiner small cell cancer 

The major risk factors for small cell lung cancer are tobacco, alcohol, unhealthy food and physical inactivity. Some chronic infections also causes cancer. Having family history of lung cancer and being effected with the HIV also risk factors for small cell lung cancer

Symptoms of small cell lung cancer include coughing, blood in sputum, wheezing, chest pain, and shortness of breath. Current treatments are not cure the cancer in some patients with small cell lung cancer.

To treat small cell lung cancer following treatments are available

  • Surgery
  • Radiation therapy
  • Chemotherapy

Doctors performed surgery to remove malignant tumor and lymph node.

Chemotherapy and radiation therapy given to the patient at a time to treat early stage of small cell lung cancer. Giving to treatments at a time to the patient is called concurrent chemo radiation.

Radiation therapy is given to the patient to shrink tumor cells as well as to relieve symptoms such as bleeding, cough, trouble swallowing and shortness of breath. Three-dimensional conformal radiation therapy (3D-CRT) and Intensity modulated radiation therapy (IMRT) are the two types of radiation methods used in the treatment.
