Top 3 Factors Shaping the Psoriatic Arthritis (PsA) Treatment Market

  • Launch of new products and availability of inexpensive biosimilar antibody therapeutics are among the major trends in the Psoriatic Arthritis (PsA) treatment market

    Key market players, such as Pfizer Inc., Johnson & Johnson Services, Inc., AbbVie Inc., and Amgen Inc., are focusing on developing next-generation antibody therapeutics, along with the increasing psoriatic arthritis treatment-seeking rate and patient acceptance. For example-

    • Inflectra, which is a biosimilar of Remicade that was approved by the European Union in 2013, is now available globally
    • Inflectra was commercially launched in 2015 in the U.S., when it generated a revenue of US$ 30 Mn. Within the first year of its launch, it registered 540% Y-o-Y growth in sales across the world in 2016
    • Novartis AG, a leader in prescription medicines for psoriatic arthritis treatment, recently received European Union approvals for two biosimilars for rheumatoid arthritis
  • Increasing prevalence of psoriatic arthritis is expected to create strong demand for Psoriatic Arthritis (PsA) treatment

    According to Arthritis Foundation, around 60 to 70% of patients with psoriasis ultimately suffer from PsA, and 15 to 20% of arthritis patients develop psoriasis. Psoriatic Arthritis (PsA) is prevalent among 0.05% to 0.25% of the general population, and 6% to 41% of patients worldwide suffer from psoriasis. According to the National Psoriasis Foundation, psoriasis is among the most prevalent autoimmune diseases in the U.S., and 2.4 million people suffer from psoriatic arthritis.

  • High adoption rate of conventional DMARD therapies in cost-sensitive markets is estimated to boost the Psoriatic Arthritis (PsA) treatment market over the forecast period

    Conventional DMARDs are being used for Psoriatic Arthritis (PsA) treatment since the launch of Ridaura in 1985. Despite enormous progress in Psoriatic Arthritis (PsA) treatment with biologic DMARDs during the past 16 years, conventional DMARDs are being used as a first- and second-line therapy for Psoriatic Arthritis (PsA) treatment in the resource-limited settings of emerging markets such as India, Africa, and Brazil, among others.

    Moreover, manufacturers are investigating some novel anti-rheumatic disease-modifying agents that are expected to be in the market in next few years. The uptake of these agents by patients and prescribers is expected to contribute to market growth. For instance, Piclidenoson is being developed as a first-line therapy and as an alternative to methotrexate.
