Multiple Sclerosis - Japan 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.
GlobalData estimates that drug sales for MS in Japan reached $109.6m during 2014, which is considerably smaller than the Western markets covered in this report. GlobalData anticipates that the market growth will be steady between 2014 and 2018, as treatment rates increase supported by the launches of Tysabri, Copaxone, and Tecfidera. However, slower growth rates are expected between 2018 and 2021, as these novel agents become established within the Japanese market.
