Industry Insights

The global interleukin inhibitors market size was estimated at USD 20.7 billion in 2018 and is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 17.4% during the forecast period. Growing prevalence of autoimmune diseases and increasing adoption of interleukin inhibitors are expected to drive the IL Inhibitors market growth.

There has been a significant paradigm shift in the treatment of autoimmune diseases over the last few decades. The preference for targeted therapies is increasing due to their improved safety and efficacy profiles. Patent expiry and increased adoption of biosimilar in Tumor Necrosis Factor (TNF) inhibitors has raised the growth potential of the market.

U.S. interleukin inhibitors market

New product launches are major growth rendering drivers, for instance, in 2019, AbbVie, Inc. launched Skyrizi (risankizumab-rzaa) for the treatment of plaque psoriasis. Earlier in 2018, Sun Pharmaceutical Industries Inc. launched Ilumya (tildrakizumab-asmn) for moderate-to-severe plaque psoriasis.

Demand is likely to be fueled by the impending launches of late-stage pipeline candidates. Label expansions of marketed products, such as Actemra for juvenile idiopathic arthritis and Dupixent for atopic dermatitis, are expected to further drive penetration. In addition, positive outcomes from ongoing clinical trials indicate the high growth potential of the IL inhibitors market.

Application Insights

Psoriasis captured the largest share among applications in 2018, driven by strong commercial performances of Stelara, Cosentyx, and Taltz. Increasing disease prevalence, rise in consumer awareness, and favorable reimbursement policies are significant contributors to growth.

Psoriatic arthritis is expected to experience the fastest growth over the forecast period, followed by Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD). Impending launches of late-stage pipeline products and label expansions of existing products indicated for psoriatic arthritis, Crohn’s disease, and ulcerative colitis, are key growth propellers.

Type Insights

IL-23 dominated the interleukin inhibitor types, largely driven by the blockbuster drug Stelara. Recent additions were made to the segment of Tremfya in 2017, Ilumya in 2018, and Skyrizi in 2019. Although Stelara continues to generate high revenue despite nearing patent expiry in 2023, the IL-23 segment is anticipated to witness strong growth driven by the anticipated new entrants.

Global Interleukin inhibitors market

IL-17 is estimated to be the fastest growing segment over the forecast period, which can be attributed to the high sales of Cosentyx and Taltz. Cosentyx became a blockbuster drug in 2017, its third year of launch, while Taltz is expected to cross USD 1 billion sales in 2019. In addition, the recent launch of Siliq and the impending approval of bimekizumab are expected to have a positive impact on the growth of IL-17.

Regional Insights

North America accounted for more than 70.00% share in 2018, owing to strong commercial sales of interleukin inhibitors in the U.S. Some of the other factors contributing to the growth are proactive government initiatives, increase in healthcare expenditure, and local presence of key manufacturers.

Asia Pacific is projected to observe the fastest growth throughout the forecast period. Economic development, improvement in healthcare infrastructure, increase in disposable income, and a rise in consumer awareness are likely to contribute to regional growth. Emerging countries, such as China, India, and South Korea, are expected to exhibit strong growth.
