BRAF Kinase Inhibitors Market Introduction
BRAF is a human gene that encodes the BRAF protein. The BRAF protein is more formally known as serine/threonine-protein kinase BRAF. The BRAF gene is also known as VRAF murine sarcoma viral oncogene homolog B and proto-oncogene BRAF. BRAF is a member of the RAF kinase family of growth signal transduction protein kinases. These proteins play an important role in regulating the MAP kinase signaling pathway. The signaling pathway affects cell differentiation, division, and secretion. Mutation in BRAF proteins can cause certain types of cancer including colorectal cancer and melanoma. Blocking mutated BRAF kinase proteins can help in inhibition of growth of cancerous cells. Hence, certain types of BRAF kinase inhibitors are used to treat a few types of cancer. BRAF kinase inhibitors are used as targeted therapy drugs for the treatment of non-small-cell lung carcinoma (NSCLC), renal cell carcinoma (RCC), and melanomas caused by mutations of the BRAF gene. These drugs directly target the BRAF protein and inhibit the growth of cancerous cells in patients with metastatic melanoma.

BRAF Kinase Inhibitors Market Dynamics
High prevalence of non-small-cell lung carcinoma (NSCLC) is likely to be key contributing factor for the growth of BRAF Kinase Inhibitors Market.
The BRAF kinase inhibitors market is primarily driven by increase in the rate of incidence and prevalence of cancers such as metastatic melanoma and non-small-cell lung carcinoma (NSCLC). Melanoma is reported as the most common type of cancer worldwide with estimated, age-standardized incidence rates of 2.8–3.1 per 100,000 people. According to the American Cancer Society, about 96,480 new patients with melanomas would be diagnosed in the U.S. by the end of 2019. Out of these, about 39,260 would be women and 57,220 would be men. About 7,230 people are expected to die of melanoma. According to a study published in ‘Cancer.Net’, lung cancer is the second-most common cancer and it is a leading cause of cancer deaths among both men and women. Around 142,670 deaths are likely to be caused by lung cancer by the end of 2019. Non-small-cell lung carcinoma (NSCLC) is the most common type of lung cancer; it accounts for 84% of all lung cancer diagnoses.
Large number of clinical trial pipeline drugs and anticipated commercialization by various companies is one of the key driving factors during the forecast period.
The global BRAF kinase inhibitors market is expected to expand at a rapid pace during the forecast period. Research and development activities by key market players have increased over the last few years. They are focusing on extending the research on BRAF kinase inhibitors for other applications. Furthermore, several BRAF kinase inhibitor drugs are at the final stage of research and development and are expected to be launched during the forecast period.
