Global Musculoskeletal Disorders Therapeutics Market to Witnesses Moderate Growth as Generic Share Continues to Rise
In 2010, the global musculoskeletal disorders market was approximately $33.4 billion, representing a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 5.7% between 2002 and 2010. By 2017, the global market is estimated to reach $54.8 billion, indicating a CAGR of 7.3% between 2010 and 2017. The major reason behind the growth rate is the approval of Prolia (denosumab) during 2010. Although the market for management is highly competitive, blockbuster sales of Cymbalta (duloxetine HCl) coupled with improved diagnosis is expected to drive the market in the future.
The global musculoskeletal disorders market is expected to witness a series of patent expiries between 2010 and 2017, which includes some top selling drugs such as Cymbalta (duloxetine HCl) and Celebrex (celecoxib). While the current market pipeline has a prospect for growth in the future, these factors will not be able to completely offset the challenge from generic competition. Muscular dystrophy is one of the most commonly recognized musculoskeletal disorders, but there are no approved therapeutic options available for this disease. For this reason, the markets generic share continues to rise.

Unmet Need for Better Management of Musculoskeletal Diseases and Potential for Future Growth is Driving Companies to Invest in Research and Development
The research and development (R&D) pipeline for musculoskeletal disorders diseases is moderately healthy due to the presence of about 468 programs. These programs study drug candidates for the treatment of musculoskeletal disorders associated with osteoarthritis, osteoporosis, rheumatoid arthritis, low back pain and muscular dystrophy. However, the products in the pipeline do not look especially promising and may not provide better efficacy or safety levels compared to the drugs currently in the market. The pipeline consists of both first-in-class and me-too products. The success of the first-in-class products will determine the future prospects for the industry. The high R&D activity indicates that the musculoskeletal disorders market has good potential for growth.
The musculoskeletal disorders market is marked by the extensive availability of generic drugs. The market will be considerably impacted by the patent expiries of several major drugs such as Cymbalta, Humira and Cerebrex. Another trend shaping the musculoskeletal disorders market worldwide is considerable M&A activity and licensing agreements among drug delivery firms; leading pharmaceutical companies are expected to develop tamper and abuse-resistant novel drug innovations in the forecast period.
