Visiongain has launched a new pharma report Global Rheumatoid Arthritis Drugs Market Forecast 2019-2029: Biologics, Non-Biologics, NSAIDs, sDMARDs and Others.

Demand for RA drugs is on the rise, particularly in developing countries. The TNF inhibitors, which have dominated the market so successfully, are now coming to the end of their patents, opening the way for new biologics and biosimilars to compete for their share of the market. Following the launch of Xeljanz there are other oral DMARDs in development which could potentially undermine the role of the biologics. Changes in the next few years will be critical in determining the future treatment for RA.

The lead analyst of the report commented "one factor driving growth in this market is the discovery of new molecules that are involved in the disease process, hence, new strategies for treating the disease. Molecules such as TNFα, interleukin 6, interleukin 1, and janus kinase have all enabled the development of new treatments to target these molecules.

There are also several restraints on the RA drugs market which discourage the introduction of new drugs. One of these is the increasing pressure from governments to reduce the size of healthcare budgets and restrict the price of drugs. There are also drives to encourage physicians to prescribe generics and biosimilars rather than branded products, and to increase the percentage of patients who receive such products from year to year."

Leading companies featured in the report include AbbVie, Amgen, AstraZeneca, BMS, Eli Lilly, Johnson & Johnson, Merck & Co, Novartis, Pfizer, Roche, Sanofi, UCB
