Multiple Sclerosis - China Drug Forecast and Market Analysis to 2024
Multiple Sclerosis (MS) is an inflammatory autoimmune disease of the central nervous system which leads to neurological disability. The exact underlying cause of the disease is poorly understood; however, it appears to involve a complex combination of genetic susceptibility and a non-genetic trigger. The MS therapeutics market has entered an exciting phase, with an upsurge of available treatment options. Over the forecast period, patients are expected to continue to switch to the oral disease-modifying therapies (DMTs), lessening the stronghold of the established injectable treatments. There are also several promising products in the late-stage pipeline, with a diverse range of mechanisms offering clinical advantages intended to address unmet needs. Both pipeline and marketed DMTs are seeking approval for the treatment of progressive MS, which currently represents a significant unmet need. These factors are expected to increase treatment rates throughout the 10MM resulting, driving market growth. However, this will be largely offset by brand erosion due to the emergence of biosimilars and generic small molecules.
Sales of DMT products in China were estimated to be $61.3m in 2014, making it the second smallest MS market behind India. GlobalData anticipates steep growth to occur mid-forecast resulting from the launch of the first oral DMTs in China. Currently only four DMTs are available, with mitoxantrone being used off-label for MS in China. As such, the anticipated approval of two oral agents will not only provide added convenience for patients but will increase the diversity of treatment options, leading to a notable rise in treatment rates.
