Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis (IPF) Therapeutics - Pipeline Assessment and Market Forecasts to 2018


GlobalData, the industry analysis specialist, has released its new report, “Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis (IPF) Therapeutics - Pipeline Assessment and Market Forecasts to 2018”. The report is an essential source of information and analysis on the global IPF market. The report identifies the key trends shaping and driving the global IPF market. The report also provides insights on the prevalent competitive landscape and the emerging players expected to significantly alter the market positioning of the current market leaders. Most importantly, the report provides valuable insights on the pipeline products within the global IPF sector. This report is built using data and information sourced from proprietary databases, primary and secondary research and in-house analysis by GlobalData’s team of industry experts.

GlobalData valued the global idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) therapeutics market at $74.0m in 2010, and is forecast to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 50.2% over the next eight years to reach $1919.9m in 2018. This high growth rate can be attributed to the expected launch of Esbriet (pirfenidone) in Europe in 2012 (except for Germany, where it is expected to be launched in September 2011). In Japan, pirfenidone is known as Pirespa and in Europe and the US it is known as Esbriet. Pirespa (pirfenidone) was approved in Japan in 2008 and it is the only approved drug to date for the treatment of IPF. Being the first drug to be approved for IPF, it was set at a premium price in Japan. In spite of its high price, it achieved a significant market share with sales of $35m within two years of its launch. This signifies that the product acceptance for Pirespa was high in Japan. Esbriet is expected to show a similar trend after its launch in Europe and the US. Another drug, Vargatef (BIBF 1120), is also expected to be launched during the forecast period, which will provide further impetus to the IPF market. Esbriet is expected to be launched in the US in 2014. In May 2010, the FDA rejected InterMune’s application for the approval of Esbriet in the US, requesting an additional clinical study. InterMune has commenced enrollment for a new Phase III study, ASCEND (Assessment of Pirfenidone to Confirm Efficacy and Safety in IPF), results for which are expected to be available in mid-2013. InterMune anticipates a New Drug Application (NDA) resubmission for pirfenidone in the second half of 2013 and FDA action in the first half of 2014.
