The rising burden of cancer and the increasing cancer mortality rates possesses an unmet need for the development of novel therapies in the management of cancer. Despite huge advancements in the field of cancer therapeutics, there has been no permanent cure of cancer till now. However, the advancement in the field of science and technology has led to the identification of potential targets which can be utilized in drug development process.
The identification of anaplastic lymphoma kinase gene as well as its potential role in the pathogenesis and proliferation of cancer has shown to be boon in cancer therapeutics. The extensive research and development by the researchers have led to the discovery of novel anaplastic lymphoma kinase inhibitors which are used in the management of rare ALK positive cancers. Till now, only five anaplastic lymphoma kinase inhibitors have been approved for the management of non-small cell lung cancer.
Historically, chemotherapy as well as radiotherapy was the mainstay treatment options available for ALK positive tumors, but the advent of targeted anaplastic lymphoma kinase inhibitors have revolutionized the paradigm of cancer treatment. Anaplatic lymphoma kinase inhibitors confer several advantages over previously approved therapies in terms of targetability, specificity and efficacy. Moreover, these drugs are not associated with side-effects in comparison to conventional cancer therapie and also improved the survival rates of patients.
The global anaplastic lymphoma kinase market is currently following trajectory path which is mainly attributed to the increases in diagnosis of lung cancer coupled with increasing investments by major key players in research and development activities and the inclusion of ALK inhibitors in the pipeline are boosting the growth of the market globally. Moreover, the rates at which conventional therapies is falling further surge the development of novel therapies in the management of anaplastic lymphoma kinase positive tumors.
Although the market is poised to growth in coming years but several factors limits their growth in market. The high cost of cancer therapy is one of the major limiting factors which will restrict the growth of market in coming years. The high cost of cancer therapy with anaplastic lymphoma kinase inhibitors causes financial toxicity to the patients which limit its use. Furthermore, the development of resistance to the therapy in 1-2 years also acts as barrier to the market.
Currently, US and Europe are dominating the global anaplastic lymphoma kinase inhibitor market and are contributing to the major share in the global market. The dominance is mainly due to the to the presence of large pharmaceutical sector which actively invest in research and development activities as well as increasing funding by the government to promote research and development. Apart from this, the favourable reimbursement polcies in this region also encourage the use of nocel therapies in the management of cancer.
The global anaplastic lymphoma kinase market is growing to witness high growth during the forecasted period due to the robust clinical pipelines of drugs as well as their expanded application in different cancers. In addition to this, the market will be flourished with ALK inhibitors in combination with other regimens which will increase the efficacy of treatment. The increase in prevalence of cancer will further drive the growth of market in coming years.
The report “Global Anaplastic Lymphoma Kinase ALK Inhibitors Market & Clinical Trials Insight 2026” gives insight on the price, dosage and sales of the currently available drugs in the market as well as the patent expiration year of these drugs which will open the opportunities for the development of generics in this sector. In addition to this, the information on the emerging inhibitor and various clinical trials are also included in this report.
