(Before It's News)

Melanoma is the deadliest and most aggressive form of skin cancer. The major treatments for melanoma are categorized into immunotherapies and BRAF mutation-targeted therapies. Publisher estimates the 2013 sales for melanoma at approximately $1.34 billion across the 8MM covered in this report. The market will increase by four-fold over the forecast period, reaching $5.64 billion in 2023 at a CAGR of 15.5%.

This growth will be driven by an increase in melanoma incident cases as well as the approval and uptake of premium-priced products, such as PD-1-targeting mAbs and BRAF/MEK inhibitor combinations. Publisher expects, by the end of the forecast period, the checkpoint immunotherapy drug class to dominate the melanoma market (including both BRAF wild-type and mutation-positive patient segments) with an overall 67% share of the melanoma market.

Request For Sample:

Publisher expects growth of this market to be driven by increasing disease incident cases as the population ages, the launch of expensive new therapies including anti-PD-1 immunotherapies and BMS’ Yervoy/Opdivo combination, and the label expansion of metastatic drugs into the adjuvant setting. However, market growth in Australia is expected to be restricted by the PBS’s reimbursement watchdog, PBAC. At present, Zelboraf and Mekinist have not been given approval from PBAC in Australia, although patients can access Mekinist through a patient access program. In addition, since the reimbursement approval of Tafinlar, Yervoy is only reimbursed when given after BRAF/MEK inhibitor treatment.
