Global HER2+ Breast Cancer Industry Report 2021-2030: Opportunities for Marketed & Pipeline Agents, R&D Strategies, Innovative Development Approaches, Drug Sales Forecast

DUBLIN, Oct. 13, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — The “HER2+ Breast Cancer – Global Drug Forecast and Market Analysis to 2030” report has been added to’s offering.

The Global HER2+ market is forecast to grow to $12.1 billion by 2030, at a CAGR of 1.5%.

Breast cancer is the second most common cancer in the world and the most common cancer in women worldwide. Human epidermal growth factor receptor 2-positive (HER2+) breast cancer constitutes approximately 20% of breast cancer cases and was historically associated with poor prognosis in the absence of effective treatments. The realization that introducing HER2-targeted therapies earlier into the disease management strategy could improve disease-free survival (DFS) has created a large market for HER2-directed therapies.

Today, HER2+ breast cancer patients are living longer with their disease, thanks to established disease management strategies using regimens with Herceptin, Perjeta, and the antibody-drug conjugate Kadcyla. During the forecast period 2020-2030, each of these agents are expected to face patent expiries and biosimilar erosion, which will represent the biggest barrier of market growth to date.

To combat biosimilar erosion, Roche/Genentech is developing subcutaneous fixed-dose formulations of Herceptin/Perjeta to provide convenience for patients and physicians. This will act to consolidate revenues for Roche/Genentech and maintain their presence as market leader throughout the forecast period.

Daiichi Sankyo and AstraZeneca’s agent, Enhertu is expected to make a large impact of clinical practice by replacing Kadcyla in the second-line metastatic setting and threatening it’s patient share in the adjuvant setting. The report anticipates 5 pipeline agents to be launched across the 8MM over the forecast period 2020-2030.

Study Coverage
