Raynaud’s Disease (Raynaud’s Syndrome/ Raynaud’s Phenomenon) Therapeutics Market - Growth, Future Prospects, And Competitive Analysis, 2018-2026


As per Cleveland Clinic, primary Raynaud’s phenomenon affects around 5% to 10% of the general population. This phenomenon is predominantly observed among the female population aged 15 to 30 years. Secondary Raynaud’s phenomenon is comparatively more prevalent as its occurrence is associated with the presence of autoimmune diseases. Raynaud’s disease occurs in 90% to 95% of scleroderma patients, 85% of mixed connective tissue disease patients, 40% of systemic lupus erythematous patients and 40% of antisynthetase syndrome patients. The growing prevalence of autoimmune disease thus increases the occurrence of Raynaud’s syndrome, contributing to the overall growth of this market.  

According to the National Institute of Health (NIH), 23.5 million Americans have reported to have at least one autoimmune disease. The NIH also reported that the direct healthcare costs associated with autoimmune diseases account to around US$ 100 million. According at a review article published by McFarlane IM et al. (McFarlane IM, Bhamra MS, Kreps A, Iqbal S, Al-Ani F, et al. (2018) Gastrointestinal Manifestations of Systemic Sclerosis. Rheumatology (Sunnyvale) 8: 235. doi:10.4172/2161-1149.1000235), the prevalence of scleroderma among the U.S. population accounts to 276 persons per million and incidence rates account to 20 new cases per million each year. The growing prevalence of scleroderma thus contributes to the overall growth of the Raynaud’s disease therapeutic market.

So far, there are no FDA approved treatment options for Raynaud’s disease. Calcium channel blockers, vasodilators and alpha-blockers are prescribed to relieve symptoms. The requirement of a target based therapy remains a major unmet need of this market, thus creating market opportunities for existing and emerging industrial players. The pipeline molecules BAY63-2521 (Riociguat) by Bayer AG and RayVa (Alprostadil) by Apricus Biosciences, Inc., are being developed for Raynaud’s disease treatment, ensuring potential market growth during the forecast period from 2018 to 2026.

Raynaud’s disease therapeutics market comprises a vast market outreach across the globe. North America accounted for major market share owing to the growing prevalence of autoimmune conditions leading to Raynaud’s disease, rising research activities and increase healthcare expenditure. Asia Pacific is also a potential market owing to its developing healthcare infrastructure, rising awareness on healthcare and growing Raynaud’s disease prevalence.
