Global Respiratory Drugs Market to 2023 - A Changing Therapeutic Landscape as Key Patents Expire - Research and Markets

(October 12, 2017)

DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The "Global Respiratory Drugs Market to 2023 - A Changing Therapeutic Landscape as Key Patents Expire and Biologics, Targeted Therapies and CFTR Modulators for Asthma and Cystic Fibrosis Treatment Emerge as Market Growth Drivers" report has been added to Research and Markets' offering.

Global revenue from the respiratory market is forecast to increase from $30.9 billion in 2016 to $41.3 billion in 2023, at a compound annual growth rate of 4.23%.

Recently approved products in COPD include multiple LABA/LAMA fixed-dose combinations, some of which are forecast to generate over $1 billion by 2023, and include GlaxoSmithKline (GSK)'s triple-combination therapy (fluticasone furoate plus umeclidinium bromide plus vilanterol trifenatate).

The approval of novel biologics in the asthma market, including interleukin (IL)-targeting Nucala (mepolizumab), marketed by GSK, is also forecast to have a strong commercial impact on the market. Notable drivers of growth in the cystic fibrosis (CF) market are the recently approved disease-modifying therapies Kalydeco (ivacaftor) and Orkambi (lumacaftor/ivacaftor), both from Vertex.

Respiratory therapy area consists of indications that affect the lungs, bronchi, trachea, larynx, pharynx and nose in different ways, such as the scarring of lung tissue or the excessive production of mucus. Respiratory disease most commonly results in breathing difficulties, which can lead to disruptions in sleep, wheezing, anxiety and stress. In more severe cases shortness of breath (dyspnea) can limit physical activity, affecting both the quality of life and life expectancy of sufferers. The cause of respiratory disorders varies significantly across each indication and includes factors such as environment, occupation, genetic predisposition and aging.

In 2016, GSK was the leading company in terms of revenue generated from respiratory disorder products, accounting for 30.3% of the market, while Vertex had a small market share of 5.3%. However, the emergence of cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator (CFTR) modulating therapies, which are considered disease-modifying therapies for CF, an indication which has traditionally only had symptomatic treatments, is set to have a substantial clinical and commercial impact. There are only two of these products on the market, Orkambi and Kalydeco, both of which were developed by Vertex.
