Visiongain has launched a new pharma report Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA) Drugs Market 2017-2027: Trends, Progress and Revenue Forecasting: Evaluation of Classes (Biologic DMARDs, Synthetic DMARDs and Other Agents) and Products Including Humira, Enbrel, Remicade, Rituxan, Actemra and Biosimilars; Assessment of Leading Companies Including AbbVie, Roche, J&J, Amgen, Pfizer and Merck & Co.; Prediction of Leading National Markets (US, Japan the EU5 and BRIC); and Investigation of Late-Stage R&D Including IL-6, JAK, BTK and GM-CSF Inhibitors

Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is an autoimmune disorder which primarily affects the synovial joints but also has systemic complications. It is a chronic progressive disease which increases the risk of cardiovascular morbidity and can shorten life expectancy. It affects between 0.5% and 1.0% of the population.

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 Visiongain report analyst for this report commented; “The next ten years offers RA patients the possibility of having cheaper, more-targeted, and more-convenient drugs for their condition. The TNF inhibitors have been very lucrative drugs for manufacturers, but very expensive ones for patients. The rise to prominence of the biosimilars provides a way of reducing the cost of treatment but retaining the same level of efficacy. The introduction of new biologics, such as IL-6 inhibitors, could provide more-targeted drugs with greater levels of efficacy, while the arrival of new JAK inhibitors and BTK inhibitors could provide oral treatments which reduce the need for biologics. There are a lot of opportunities for new drugs in RA, and it is going to be interesting to see how the market develops.”

The Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA) Drugs market is highly competitive with many different players entering the market. The report discusses selected leading companies in the market. Notable companies in the RA Drugs market are Abbvie, Roche, Johnson & Johnson, Amgen, Pfizer, Merck & Co., Bristol-Myers Squibb and UCB.
