Wellesley, Mass., (PRWEB) April 28, 2014
BCC Research (http://www.bccresearch.com) reveals in its new report, DRUGS FOR TREATING SYSTEMIC LUPUS ERYTHEMATOSUS: GLOBAL MARKETS the global market for drugs to treat systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), is expected to grow to $2.6 billion by 2018, with a five-year compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 22.4%. The North American market, the fastest growing regional segment overall, is growing at a tremendous 24.7% CAGR.
SLE is a devastating and chronic autoimmune disorder affecting almost all the organs, with only one approved marketed drug — making this a significant area of unmet medical need. But there are now numerous companies developing novel treatments. North America, far and away the largest segment in the overall market, is expected to grow to $1.8 billion by 2018.
Europe, the second largest and fastest growing market, is projected to reach nearly $542 million and register a CAGR of 15.5%
“With earlier diagnosis of SLE and better treatment options for the disease and its complications, the prognosis has markedly improved over the past decades,” says BCC Research pharmaceutical analyst Sanjukta Bhattacharyya. “But significant unmet needs remain in the management of SLE. Morbidity, especially renal failure, and mortality from cardiovascular events after long-term follow-up are still important issues to be addressed. The multifactorial nature of the disease increases the complexity of its diagnosis and end-point definition.”
DRUGS FOR TREATING SYSTEMIC LUPUS ERYTHEMATOSUS: GLOBAL MARKETS provides an overview of the global market for drugs and therapeutics used to treat SLE.
