London, UK (PRWEB) January 31, 2015
The average number of people dying from asthma each year amounts to around 250,000. However, this figure could be much lower if an effective treatment is introduced. Over the last ten years, the world asthma market showed sluggish growth due to the rising generic competition and market oversaturation with standard therapies, including inhaled corticosteroids (ICSs), short-acting beta-agonists (SABAs), leukotriene modifiers and inhaled corticosteroids and long-acting beta-agonists (ICS/LABAs). However, the development of seven novel targeted biologic agents as well as ICS and ICS/LABA next-generation inhaler therapies are forecast to drive the world asthma market in the next decade.
Merck, AstraZeneca, Teva, GSK, Boehringer Ingelheim, Roche and Novartis are the leading players within the asthma market. The companies are focused on Xolair (omalizumab), a biologic therapy which already went beyond the USD 1 billion mark in sales volumes.
GSK has the most successful portfolio of asthma drugs, with Advair being the major one. Advair's patent is unlikely to expire in the near future, although the patent cliff for the drug formulations and the Diskus inhaler is expected in the reviewed period. Besides, Breo Ellipta (fluticasone furoate and vilanterol), developed by GSK, is about to take lead in the world asthma market.
Meantime, Merck is likely to lose its major position in the asthma market given the weak pipeline, which is concentrated on immunotherapies development, along with the rapid generic erosion of the company's blockbuster drug, Singulair.
Given the growth of environmental diseases around the globe, the number of people suffering from the asthma is expected to achieve 400 million patients in 2025.
