February 2018 | Report Format: Electronic (PDF)

The global rheumatoid arthritis therapeutics market size is expected to reach USD 30.4 billion by 2025, according to a new report by Grand View Research, Inc., expanding at a CAGR of 4.6% during the forecast period. Some of the key trends driving the market are availability of novel biologics, increase in potential clinical pipeline candidates, and rise in aging population. Thus, growing availability and awareness of safer drugs are projected to escalate rheumatoid arthritis drugs market growth. 

Rheumatoid arthritis affects approximately 1% of the global population. The condition has different symptoms such as joint pain, swelling, and stiffness, which are generally accompanied by chronic pain and inability to perform daily activities. Over a prolonged period, this disorder can hamper a patient’s mobility and can lead to permanent joint damage. If left untreated, this disorder can lead to mobility impairment and risk of joint replacement.

Growing prevalence of the disease, presence of biologics & biosimilars, and well-defined regulatory guidelines are poised to provide a fillip to the market. According to the Arthritis Foundation, 64% of the population within the age group of 65 is likely to suffer from arthritis in U.S. Increasing awareness regarding disease remittance therapies and rising healthcare expenditure in developed regions are estimated to promote revenue growth.

Current treatment for rheumatoid arthritis includes generic pharmaceuticals such as NSAIDs and corticosteroids along with novel biologics such as JAK inhibitors and IL-6 antagonists, which are widely used in developed countries due to their high effectiveness. New product launches such as Infliximab and Adalimumab biosimilars are anticipated to work in favor of the market. Moreover, Eli Lilly’s Olumiant and AbbVie’s Upadacitinib are expected to cut down chances of disease remittance.
