Asthma Therapeutics Market to 2019

The asthma market is forecast to grow marginally to 2019 across the leading eight developed nations, from $16.6 billion in 2012 to a projected value of $21.6 billion in 2019. This growth is expected despite the generic erosion facing the leading brands, and is a consequence of new market entrants and a disease prevalence that continues to rise, albeit not at rates as high as have been seen in the past. Some new, costly asthma therapies could be set to enter the asthma market, including GlaxoSmithKline’s recently approved Relvar and multiple monoclonal antibodies.

These include reslizumab, mepolizumab and lebrikizumab, which are being developed by Teva, GSK and Roche respectively. The mAbs, in particular, have the potential to change the asthma treatment landscape, most notably with regards to severe forms of the disease.

However, the asthma market will be hit by the growth of generic drug sales, as well as by both recent patent expirations and patents due to expire over the next couple of years. Additionally, there are various unknowns about the condition, which have created difficulties for pharmaceutical companies hoping to develop therapies targeted at specific molecular types or clinical symptoms of the disease.

"Despite the pathophysiology of asthma being well described, there remains a limited understanding of the specific interactions that occur between inflammatory cells and mediators that bring about specific clinical manifestations of the disease. Indeed, the exact cause or causes of the disease remain unknown, and are the subject of much ongoing research," concludes Yasser Mushtaq, GBI Research’s Associate Analyst.
