Renal Cell Carcinoma: Global Drug Forecast and Market Analysis to 2028

Renal Cell Carcinoma: Global Drug Forecast and Market Analysis to 2028


Renal cell carcinoma (RCC) is the most common type of kidney cancer in adults, making up 90-95% of all kidney cancer cases. Globally, RCC represents the sixth most frequently diagnosed cancer in men and 10th in women. RCC consists of a heterogeneous group of tumors with distinct genetic and metabolic defects. The major histologic RCC subtype is ccRCC, which represents 80-95% of cases (as shown in Table 2). Other forms of the disease, usually referred as non-clear cell RCC (nccRCC), include papillary RCC (PRCC), chromophobe RCC (ChRCC), translocation carcinoma, medullary carcinoma, and collecting duct carcinoma. At present, metastatic RCC (mRCC) is considered incurable, with only a small minority of patients achieving a complete response (CR) to treatment. However, major advances in the treatment landscape within the past 15 years have significantly improved progression-free survival (PFS) and overall survival (OS).

GlobalData is expecting a total of 7 new entrants to launch over the forecast period in the 8MM from 2018-2028 while specific marketed agents are expected to undergo label expansion. The competition will be particularly fierce in renal cell carcinoma, immune checkpoint inhibitors and combinations thereof competing for market share in the adjuvant setting and in fist-line treatment of metastatic RCC. No drugs are currently in late development for nccRCC leaving the treatment of that population an unmet need within the forecast period.
