The increasing need to prevent various effects of psoriatic arthritis, such as nail pitting, tender joints, flaky scalp, morning stiffness, painful muscles, and swollen fingers among the geriatric population, is anticipated to bolster the market in the upcoming years. In addition, the rising prevalence of this condition amongst those patients already suffering from plaque psoriasis is set to propel the sales in this market.

Besides, the easy availability of highly effective biological medicines for psoriasis, rapid adoption of hectic lifestyles leading to the overstimulation of the immune system, and increasing number of approvals of alternative therapies for psoriatic arthritis, are estimated to boost the market in the near future. Coupled with this, the emergence of online pharmacy solutions and telehealth facilities for getting one’s medications and prescriptions delivered at home is likely to augment the market.  

2013-2021 Psoriatic Arthritis (PsA) Treatment Market Outlook in Comparison to 2022-2028 Growth Forecast

The psoriatic arthritis (PsA) treatment market is expected to register 7.1% CAGR between 2022 and 2028, up from 6.7% CAGR recorded during 2013-2021, predicts Future Market Insights.

The consecutive launches and consistent developments of breakthrough products for rheumatoid psoriasis treatment are anticipated to drive the market in the near future. Various pharmaceutical companies are striving to enhance the efficacy and safety of their products owing to the implementation of stringent norms by the governments of various countries.

At the same time, the number of head-to-head trials between late-stage pipeline candidates, new drugs, and vital commercial products is likely to surge in the forthcoming years. This would further help in investigating the superiority of performance of numerous psoriatic medications through a comparative analysis of a large number of parameters.

Many academic and research institutions are also engaging in extensive research and development activities to unveil alternative therapies for psoriatic arthritis. For instance, in December 2021, researchers at Griffith University, Australia, found that upadacitinib has exhibited comparable safety and efficacy as monotherapy. It has also demonstrated superiority when used in combination with non-biologic disease-modifying antirheumatic drugs in patients living with psoriasis orthotics. The development of such novel treatment options by researchers and companies for psoriatic arthritis prevention is projected to support the growth in this market.

Which are the Factors Accelerating Development of Novel Psoriatic Medications?

The increasing life expectancy, genetic changes, higher prevalence of stressful lifestyles, and high geriatric population are set to propel the prevalence of psoriatic arthritis across the globe. Also, regulatory bodies in various countries are conducting awareness campaigns through social media platforms to make people better understand the importance of psoriatic arthritis prevention.

According to the World Health Organization (WHO), 1 in 6 people will be aged 60 years or above globally in 2030. In addition to this, the world’s population of people aged 60 years and older is expected to double by 2050 and reach 2.1 billion. This trend is set to continue, thereby creating new growth opportunities for pharmaceutical companies present in the field of psoriatic medications.

On top of that, psoriatic arthritis and psoriasis bone pain are often linked with depression and anxiety, which would enable companies to conduct R&D activities for coming up with new drugs. In April 2020, for instance, researchers at the Krembil Research Institute discovered that psoriatic arthritis and depression are closely related as depression can lead to inflammation and vice versa.

Patients with psoriatic arthritis have high levels of immune system proteins called cytokines that can trigger inflammation and lead to depression, whereas the inability of patients to perform their daily activities can result in depression. To prevent these conditions, various companies are expected to launch alternative therapies for psoriatic arthritis in the near future.
