Global Atopic Dermatitis Drug Market – Size, Share, Impact, Growth, Trends, And Forecasts (2019 – 2028)


Report Overview

The Global Atopic Dermatitis drugs market size stood at USD 10.04 billion in 2019 and is projected to reach USD xx billion by 2028, exhibiting a CAGR of xx% during the forecast period.

Atopic dermatitis (AD) is the most common type of eczema, affecting a large percentage of world’s population. Although atopic dermatitis can occur at any age, the disease mostly affects infants and children, and subsides with age. Increasing prevalence of AD is the primary growth stimulant for the market.

Exact cause of the condition is unknown; however, the disease is speculated to result from a combination of environmental and genetic factors. AD affects males and females equally. Approximately 60.0% patients with AD develop symptoms in the first year and roughly 90.0% patients show symptoms by the age of five (atopic march). Disease onset after the age of 30 is rare and may be caused by exposure to harsh environmental conditions.

Market Drivers

Rise in awareness regarding the availability of treatments for the disease has helped the market gain traction over the past few years. Initiatives undertaken by governments to provide better and more affordable treatment and the presence of favorable reimbursement policies are likely to provide an upthrust to the market. Furthermore, growing acceptance of targeted therapies such as Eucrisa and Dupixent is also working in favor of the market.

High cost of therapeutics is one of the key roadblocks in the upward climb of the market. However, affordable healthcare measures are being incorporated across all major regions, impacting pricing strategies of companies as well as reimbursement scenarios. Heightened cost consciousness, especially in emerging countries, is anticipated to hinder premium-pricing opportunities for upcoming AD drugs, particularly biologics.

Market Segmentation

By Drug Class:

Based on drug class, the market is divided into corticosteroids, calcineurin inhibitors, phosphodiesterase4 (PDE4) inhibitors, biologics, and others. Corticosteroids have been the mainstay for AD treatment. Being the first-line therapy, this drug class is projected to maintain sizeable share in the market through 2022. Corticosteroids accounted for about 45.0% share in the market in 2016.

Calcineurin inhibitors are proven to increase the chances of nephrotoxicity and carcinogenesis. Non-specificity, toxic effects, and development of resistance to this therapeutic class are poised to stifle the growth of the segment and encourage switching to other targeted therapies.

Novel drug classes, such as PDE4 inhibitors and biologics, are expected to gain tremendous popularity over the forecast period on account of increasing adoption of targeted therapy as well as launch of pipeline candidates. Eucrisa (Pfizer; crisaborole ointment, 2.0%) is currently the only approved PDE4 inhibitor. It was approved by the FDA in 2016 for treatment of mild-to-moderate AD and is one of the few medicines indicated for pediatric usage.

By Distribution Channel:

Based on the distribution channel, the market has been segregated into hospitals, retail, online and other pharmacies.

By Region:

In terms of region, the global Cannabis market has been segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, and Middle East & Africa. The regions have been divided into major countries and sub-regions.

Major Players

Some of the key players operating in the market are Bayer, LEO Pharma, Mylan, Pfizer, and Sanofi. Mylan and LEO Pharma held roughly 5.0% share by virtue of sales of Elidel and Protopic, respectively. However, both drugs are estimated to lose share on account of patent expiration and subsequent generic penetration. Elidel’s loss of exclusivity is expected to negatively impact Mylan’s market share. LEO Pharma will be relatively less affected due to expected launch of tralokinumab by 2020.

On the contrary, Sanofi and Pfizer are likely to lead the competitive landscape by 2022, due to predicted increase in adoption of targeted therapies – Dupixent and Eucrisa – respectively. Both drugs are estimated to achieve blockbuster drug status and become top revenue generators by 2022.
