Psoriasis – Drug Pipeline Analysis and Market Forecasts to 2015


GlobalData, the industry analysis specialist’s new report, “Psoriasis – Drug Pipeline Analysis and Market Forecasts to 2015” is an essential source of information and analysis on the global psoriasis market. The report identifies the key trends shaping and driving the dynamism in the global psoriasis market. The report also provides insight on the prevalent competitive landscape and the emerging players expected to bring significant shift in the market positioning of the existing market leaders. Most importantly, the report provides valuable insight on the pipeline products within the global psoriasis sector.

This report is built using data and information sourced from proprietary databases, primary and secondary research and in house analysis by GlobalData’s team of industry experts.
GlobalData estimated the psoriasis market to be worth $2.4 billion in 2008 with projected CAGR of 7.3% and projected market value to exceed $4.1 billion in 2015. The psoriasis disease market is forecast to show high growth. This growth will be driven or supported by the increased prescription rate and uptake of biologics, more emerging therapies and diverse treatment options that will be available for patients in the near future. Barriers for the psoriasis market exist in terms of low diagnosis rate. The psoriasis market has relatively high unmet need largely driven by the poor safety profile of existing products.

GlobalData found that there are over 125 molecules in various stages of the pipeline. Voclosporin, ABT-874, CF-10 are some of the late stage pipeline molecules. Orencia, Cimzia, Apremilast and INCB18424 are some of the promising therapies in the Phase II stage of the pipeline. These pipeline molecules differ in their target of action from the existing therapies. Patient perception of disease severity drives treatment-seeking behavior in the psoriasis market. New therapeutic options targeting specific mechanisms are set to reshape the psoriasis therapy. However, the current biologics have not undermined first-line topical therapy and hence there exists intensified competition between the current therapeutics and the emerging therapies. The pipeline has seen an increase in the development of emerging therapies like biologics as they have the ability to change the natural course of the disease. Emerging therapies have gained a positive perception among physicians in the maintenance of remission. There is likely to be a tremendous increase in the prescription of biologics due to increased awareness and also promising safety and efficacy results of promising therapies. The emerging therapies are likely to crowd the market and there is the possibility of price war.

GlobalData found that the current competition in the psoriasis market is becoming intense due to the increased entry of biologics. It projects that Immunex Corporation, Abbott laboratories. Biogen Idec and Centocor will remain the leading competitiors of the global psoriasis biologics market. Compared to other autoimmune disease markets, this market has witnessed a greater entry of biologics. Though only a small segment of people tend to use biologics, their launch has increased competition in the psoriasis disease market. Amgen and Wyeth’s Enbrel is the market leader in the psoriasis disease market. It is followed by Abbott’s Humira, Leo Pharma and Warner Chiclott’s Dovonex, Centocor’s Remicade, Genentech’s Raptiva, Novartis’s Neoral (generic), followed by Allergan’s Tazorac, Biogen Idec’s Fumaderm and Biogen Idec and Astellas Pharma’s Amevive.
