Hepatitis C virus drug market is experiencing a dramatic near-term growth, by crossing US$ 6 Billion in 2011 and is expected to be more than double of its current figure by 2015. This robust growth will be driven primarily by the launch of novel premium-priced agents that will increase the size of the drug-treated population, mainly as a result of the re-treatment of prior non-responder patients.
Pegasys, Copegus and Pegintron were the only obtainable drugs in Hepatitis C drug market till May 2011. Pegasys always had more revenue generation in any year compared to Pegintron and is also expected to have higher revenue in future till 2016. However by the end of May 2011, the dynamics of the market has changed after the launch of Incivek and Victrelis. Incivek sale has grown quickly and it garnered around US$ 400 Million by end of 3rd quarter 2011. It is expected that Incivek sales will be slightly less than US$ 4 Billion by 2015. On the other hand Victrelis, which was approved a week before Incivek, is moving along a slower adoption curve. Victrelis has lost its grip into the market and reaped only US$ 31 Million sales by the end of 3rd quarter 2011.
