EpiCast Report: Psoriatic Arthritis - Epidemiology Forecast to 2025
Psoriatic arthritis (PsA) is a chronic inflammatory arthropathy that may be progressive in nature and can lead to severe joint damage and disability. The disease is considered to be rare in the general population, but PsA may affect up to 30% of persons with psoriasis (Ogdie and Gelfand, 2011; NPF, 2016).
In the 7MM, GlobalData epidemiologists forecast that the diagnosed prevalent cases of PsA will increase from 1,044,022 cases in 2015 to 1,107,253 cases in 2025, at an Annual Growth Rate (AGR) of 0.61%. The US will have the highest number of diagnosed prevalent cases of PsA among the 7MM throughout the forecast period, while Japan will have the least.
GlobalData epidemiologists provided an alternate forecast that models an increased diagnosis rate, as indicated by primary research involving high prescribing physician surveys. The results of the survey suggest that the diagnosis rate of PsA is likely to improve during the forecast period, from 2015-2025. Based on the alternative forecast of diagnosed prevalent cases, and using diagnosis rates obtained through primary market research, GlobalData epidemiologists forecast that in 2015 there were 1,044,022 diagnosed prevalent cases of PsA; this is expected to grow to 1,520,469 cases by 2025, at an AGR of 4.56%.
GlobalData’s forecast is strengthened by the use of peer-reviewed, country-specific publications, which provided the total number of diagnosed cases or diagnosed prevalent cases in each market. The use of studies that supplied diagnosed prevalence based on CASPAR criteria and medical records in countries where CASPAR is predominantly used provides a significant measure of the underlying burden of PsA in all of the 7MM. The use of a consistent methodology across the 7MM to forecast the diagnosed prevalent cases of PsA allows for a meaningful comparison of the forecast diagnosed prevalent cases of PsA in these markets. Additionally, GlobalData epidemiologists provided the diagnosed prevalent cases of PsA in each of the 7MM, segmented by type (symmetric, asymmetric, distal, spondylitis, and arthritis mutilans), which can be of importance for forecasting the prognosis and course of treatment.
The Psoriatic Arthritis (PsA) EpiCast Report provides an overview of the risk factors and global trends of NSCLC in the 7MM (US, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, UK, and Japan). It includes a base 10-year epidemiological forecast for the diagnosed prevalent cases. The diagnosed prevalent cases of PsA are further segmented by sex, age, type as defined by the Moll and Wright criteria (symmetric, asymmetric, distal, spondylitis, and arthritis mutilans), and by peripheral or axial joint involvement. Additionally, GlobalData epidemiologists include an alternate 10-year epidemiological forecast of the diagnosed incident cases of PsA based on primary market research, which includes an adjustment for an improving diagnosis rate over the forecast period.
The PsA epidemiology report is written and developed by Masters- and PhD-level epidemiologists.
The EpiCast Report is in-depth, high quality, transparent and market-driven, providing expert analysis of disease trends in the 7MM.
