Industry Insights

The global psoriasis therapeutics market size was valued at USD 11.5 billion in 2016 and is estimated to grow at a CAGR of 9.3% during the forecast period. Increasing awareness about treatment and rising demand for improved healthcare infrastructure are major factors expected to drive the psoriasis market.

U.S. psoriasis drugs market

According to the International Federation of Psoriasis Association, approximately 5.0% people suffer from one or more forms of psoriasis, globally. In the U.S. alone, the condition affects nearly 7.5 million people, which is roughly 2.0% of the population. Moreover, approximately 100,000 new cases are registered and reported every year.

Erythrodermic psoriasis is the rarest but the most dangerous type. This condition demands a medical emergency, often leading to hospitalization of patients.

Therapeutic Class Insights

The market space can be divided into various therapeutic classes such as Tumor Necrosis Factor (TNF)-inhibitors, Interleukin inhibitors and Vitamin D Analogues. TNF inhibitors have dominated the therapeutic space. However, they are likely to lose shares over the forecast. The marketed TNF-inhibitors used for psoriasis are Humira (adalimumab), Enbrel (etanercept) and Remicade (infliximab).

Interleukin (IL) inhibitors are expected to witness the fastest growth over the forecast period due to their improved safety and efficacy profiles and rising adoption among end users. Marketed interleukin inhibitors include Stelara (ustekinumab), Cosentyx (secukinumab), Taltz (ixekizumab), Siliq (brodalumab) and Tremfya (guselkumab).

The need for efficient and long-lasting drugs is a key driver pushing the market growth.The IL-mode of therapy is beneficial to patients who are intolerant or contraindicated to TNF-α inhibitor therapy. The rising adoption of the IL-inhibitor therapy and patent expiries of major TNF-inhibitor drugs such as Humira and Remicade are some of the contributing factors for this decline of TNF-inhibitor shares in the psoriasis therapeutic space.
