Global gastrointestinal therapeutics market analysis

Technavio’s market research analysts predict the global gastrointestinal therapeutics market to grow steadily during the forecast period and will post a CAGR of more than 6% by 2020. This industry research report identifies the increasing consumption of biologics for inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD) to be one of the major factors that will have a positive impact on the growth of the gastrointestinal therapeutics market size in the coming years. Biologics that are available as intravenous or subcutaneous injections are the most preferred choices for the treatment of gastrointestinal diseases such as IBD. These therapeutics act by either blocking the interleukins or the TNF-α. HUMIRA, Remicade, and Cimzia, which are some anti-TNF agents whereas, Tysabri and ENTYVI are some of the anti-integrin agents available in the market for the treatment of conditions such as ulcerative colitis and Crohn's disease. In addition, several pharmaceutical companies are constantly making investments to develop advanced biologics for the treatment of IBD, which will further aid in the growth of the market over the predicted period.

The emergence of biosimilars will be one of the major trends that will gain traction in this market in the next four years. The increased usage of biologics will induce several countries across the globe to provide effective solutions for the treatment of inflammatory disorders, without increasing healthcare expenditure. This will lead to a rise in the adoption of biosimilars as they contain active pharmaceutical ingredients that are identical to their originator biologic compounds and are also less expensive than biologics.

Competitive landscape and key vendors

Though the sale of these drugs is set to mature during the forecast period, the company will retain its market position with its drug Simponi, which is expected to gain sales by 2020.
