Global Dermatology Drugs Market 2017-2023: Introduction to Dermatology, Including Disease Epidemiology, Symptoms, Etiology, Pathophysiology, Co-Morbidities and Complications


Dublin, Dec. 07, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Global Dermatology Drugs Market to 2023 - Growth Driven by Increased Uptake of Interleukin Receptor Inhibitors for Psoriasis and Atopic Dermatitis" report has been added to Research and Markets' offering.

The report Global Dermatology Drugs Market to 2023 - Growth Driven by Increased Uptake of Interleukin Receptor Inhibitors for Psoriasis and Atopic Dermatitis provides an introduction to dermatology, including disease epidemiology, symptoms, etiology, pathophysiology, co-morbidities and complications. Disease classification and methods of diagnosis are also provided.

Dermatology is a highly diverse therapy area that deals with diseases of the skin, hair and nails. Over 3,000 types of dermatological conditions are thought to exist, ranging from the autoimmune disorder psoriasis to the very common condition acne vulgaris. The scope of dermatological disorders is diverse in terms of severity and clinical presentation, and if a condition is not sufficiently kept under control, it can significantly impair the patient's quality of life. For example, patients with severe atopic dermatitis (the most common form of eczema) may experience mobility impairments and debilitating itching, which may interfere with daily activities. Furthermore, most dermatological conditions are visible, and as such can have a profound impact on patient confidence.

There are 850 products in the dermatology pipeline with a disclosed stage of development, but the majority of these drugs are at an early stage of development. Some 42% of the pipeline is in the Preclinical stage, while 14% is in the discovery stage. However, 32% of the pipeline is in clinical development, but only 3% are in the Pre-registration stage and less than half are novel.

Four drugs that were approved for psoriasis are Cosentyx, Otezla, Eucrisa and Taltz. The most notable of the four are Cosentyx and Otezla, which were approved in 2015 and 2014, respectively, and are forecast to generate $3.8 billion and $2.7 billion from the therapy area in 2023, respectively. The two most recently approved psoriasis treatments, Taltz and Eucrisa, are not expected to achieve the same level of commercial success as Cosentyx or Otezla because they are entering a market that is already saturated with entrenched competitors that have reduced the level of unmet need.

Dermatology therapy area is dominated by top 20 pharma companies. In 2016 the most commercially successful companies in the therapy area were Johnson & Johnson, AbbVie, Amgen, Novartis and Pfizer. Across the forecast period these companies will continue to generate high revenue, but the companies will all see their market shares change.
