Overview of the global asthma therapeutics market

Market research analysts at Technavio have predicted that the global asthma therapeutics market will grow steadily over the next four years and post an impressive revenue of more than USD 22 billion by 2020. Owing to the development of target specific drugs, there will be a high demand for monoclonal antibodies for the treatment of asthma. Monoclonal antibodies (mAbs) that block immunoglobulin E and specific cytokines are important in the initiation and persistence of asthmatic inflammation. Xolair was the first mAb to be approved for the treatment of allergic asthma and recorded huge sales right after approval. Since several manufacturers are currently focusing on the development of other mAbs, the forecast period will see the introduction of several new products. And owing to the better efficacy of these drugs over other small molecules, there will be an upsurge in their demand contributing to the growth of the asthma drugs market.

The Americas will account for more than 45% of the total share of the market and dominate the industry during the forecast period. The increase in pollution and the presence of a huge asthmatic population in the Latin American countries are identified to be the major factors that will augment the demand for asthmatic drugs from this region. Also, the introduction of new healthcare reforms of various countries in the region have resulted in reducing the cost of pharmaceutical drugs, providing increased access and quality of healthcare, and offer insurance coverage for individuals of all ages, which will, in turn, fuel the growth of the market in this region

Overview of the global testosterone replacement therapy market

Technavio’s market research analyst predicts that the global testosterone replacement therapy market will generate revenues of over USD 2 billion by the end of the estimated period. A key driver influencing the growth of this market is the increased prevalence of chronic diseases around the world. Low testosterone levels can cause chronic problems like diabetes, heart disease, and can even exacerbate conditions like rheumatoid arthritis. Since these chronic conditions lead to disorders in the hypothalamic-pituitary-gonadal axis, the demand for testosterone replacement therapy will increase significantly over the next few years. This recent increase in the number of individuals with low testosterone levels will have a positive impact on the market’s growth potential during the forecast period.

In this industry report, the analysts estimate factors like the availability selective androgen receptor modulators (SARMs) to spur market growth during the forecast period. Testosterone therapies are available in injectable form or delivery through the skin. The development and free availability of SARMs are considered a better treatment option for people with androgen deficiencies. Taken orally, SARMS elicit the desired response by targeting androgen receptors. The availability of effective drug delivery systems like SARMS will propel market growth until the end of 2020.

Overview of the methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) drugs market

Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) is a skin infection that occurs mostly in hospitals and healthcare facilities.  It is treated with commonly-used antibiotics and is highly contagious. This infection is difficult to treat because it is sometimes resistant to commonly-used antibiotics such as methicillin. As per this market research report, the aging people are highly susceptible to MRSA infections, especially in the hospital environment as their weak immune system makes them easily prone to diseases and infections. The early detection of these diseases and growing awareness of their treatment drugs will positively aid to the growth of this market in the coming years. Technavio’s market research analyst predicts the global MRSA drugs market to grow at a steady CAGR of around 1% by 2020.

The surge in the number of infections and infectious diseases is creating unmet needs in the market. This has propelled government-based and non-governmental institutes to take up initiatives to develop antibiotics by providing the necessary funding to the research institutes and companies. Several nations across the globe are actively providing funds to develop antibacterial drugs and fight antibacterial drug resistance and its surveillance. Such funding encourages research institutes and companies to invest more in antibiotic research, thereby resulting in the growth of this market.
