March 2024 | Report Format: Electronic (PDF)

Osteoarthritis Therapeutics Market Growth & Trends

The global osteoarthritis therapeutics market size is estimated to reach USD 13.57 billion by 2030 and is projected to grow at a CAGR of 6.82% from 2024 to 2030, according to a new report by Grand View Research, Inc.  The osteoarthritis therapeutics market is on the rise, driven by an increase in OA cases, especially among the aging population. In the U.S. alone, there are over 32.5 million OA patients, highlighting the demand for effective treatments. Ongoing research and development efforts are focused on creating new therapies, with a particular emphasis on understanding the disease and developing solutions to address its challenges.

Managing OA proves difficult owing to its dense tissue structure, but the introduction of novel drugs such as intra-articular drug administration has accelerated the development of targeted drug delivery. Researchers are actively exploring disease-modifying drugs and bioadaptive carriers to enhance the development of innovative osteoarthritis treatments. Market players are taking initiatives to contribute to market expansion, as seen with OrthoTrophix, Inc. presenting clinical data and a registration plan for TPX-100 for knee osteoarthritis at BIO 2022.

In addition, significant efforts are being made by key pharmaceutical companies and research institutes in realm of research and development, especially for disease-modifying osteoarthritis drugs. For instance, BioSenic's Phase 3 data presentation at the 2024 OARSI World Congress showcased the efficacy of JTA-004 in treating severe inflammatory knee osteoarthritis. The post hoc analysis concluded that JTA-004 is both safe and effective, offering targeted pain management for this specific subtype of condition. These advancements in targeted drug delivery and disease-modifying drugs, as demonstrated by presentations and positive trial results, are contributing to the expansion of the market for novel osteoarthritis treatments.

Moreover, the market for OA is experiencing significant growth owing to the introduction of personalized medications such as Bisphosphonates (anti-resorptive drugs) and Synvisc-ONE injection. In addition, pharmaceutical companies and research institutions are actively engaged in developing personalized treatments and cell-based therapies for OA. In December 2023, researchers at Columbia University made a breakthrough discovery of stem cells in adult mice capable of maintaining healthy cartilage in joints, with their decline contributing to OA development due to aging and injury.

Investing in this sector offers companies the opportunity to capitalize on evolving demands, thus gaining a competitive advantage. By leading innovative medication development, companies establish themselves as frontrunners, solidifying their position in the market. The advent of personalized OA medications and advancements in cell-based therapies are key drivers of market expansion, empowering companies to emerge as leaders in the field.
