Gout - Opportunity Analysis and Forecast to 2018 is a new opportunity analyzer market report announced by Reportstack. The new report estimates the 2013 sales for gout at approximately $989m across the 6MM. The acute gout segment of the market will double in size, reaching $337m in 2018 at a CAGR of 15%. The chronic gout market, which encompasses urate-lowering and prophylactic anti-inflammatory therapies, will experience even faster growth at a CAGR of 18.8%, and it will more than double in size, reaching over 1.9 billion in 2018.
With the current standard of care for gout already encompassing very successful and cheap treatments, the bar for success in the gout market is quite high. As a result, companies are shifting the focus of their research toward more severe gout cases, trying to address the greatest unmet needs. One of the major drivers of the gout market is the growing number of patients suffering from difficult-to-treat gout, for whom the standard therapies are inappropriate due to the presence of comorbidities, unresponsiveness, or intolerance. Targeting this patient niche is the strongest trend in the R&D strategies of the gout players. One of the greatest unmet needs, however, is improved physician and patient education regarding the seriousness of the disease and the importance of adhering to appropriate therapy.
Some KOLs indicated that earlier and more aggressive urate-lowering therapy is needed:
"I think we need more urate-lowering options, and I think we need IL-1 [interleukin-1]-targeted biologics or other anti-inflammatories that really suppress the gout flares [that are induced when aggressive urate-lowering is used], and then we could treat the acute gout better, as people would stick better to the urate-lowering therapy." - Key Opinion Leader.

The key findings from this report are:
- One of the main drivers of the enormous expansion of the gout market will be the introduction of the novel urate-lowering agents, lesinurad and ulodesine, which will be used as add-on therapies to the current standard of care and target the treatment-failure gout population.
- Another strong driver will be the more aggressive approach to urate-lowering treatment, as recommended by the latest treatment guidelines, which will increase the patient pool treated with urate-lowering agents and prophylactic anti-inflammatory therapy.
- Companies are shifting the focus of their research toward more severe gout cases, trying to address the greatest unmet needs.
- Reasons for inadequate gout treatment include a poor patient understanding of their disease and physician failure to develop targeted treatment plans.
