Vasculitis Treatment Market By Drug Class (Biologics, Corticosteroids and Immunosuppressant), By Disease Condition (Large Vessel Vasculitis, Medium Vessel Vasculitis and Small Vessel Vasculitis) - Growth, Future Prospects & Competitive Analysis, 2018 – 2026

Industry Outlook

The vasculitis treatment market is expected to reach US$ 601.2 million by 2026, up from US$ 365.1 million in 2017, with a consistent compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 5.7% from 2018 to 2026. According to the Vasculitis Foundation's 2016 report, the global prevalence of vasculitis is 1-9 per 100,000 people. Vasculitis shows a high degree of incidence in the Caucasian population and is widely prevalent in the Scandinavian countries. Earlier, cyclophosphamide was considered the first line of treatment for all types of vasculitis. In 2010, the United States Food and Drug Administration (USFDA) approved rituximab for the treatment of vasculitis along with prednisolone. Pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries are constantly striving to achieve a targeted drug therapy approach for the treatment of vasculitis, majorly focusing on monoclonal antibodies such as tocilizumab, mepolizumab, and infliximab. CCX168, developed by ChemoCentryx and currently under phase II clinical trials, is an immunosuppressant projected to enter the market by 2021 and is anticipated to register impressive growth during the forecast period for the treatment of ANCA-associated vasculitis. In 2017, North America held the largest market share in the vasculitis treatment market on account of the developed healthcare infrastructure and increased public health awareness that resulted in early vasculitis diagnosis. North America is the domicile of key players engaged in the treatment of vasculitis disease, which contributes to its dominance in this market. Asia Pacific will register significant growth during the forecast period owing to a huge geriatric population suffering from large vessel vasculitis and a supportive regulatory environment for the treatment of vasculitis disease.

Market Synopsis

Better Clinical Outcomes in Vasculitis Treatment Will Contribute to the Biologics Segment Growth

Currently, biologics are leading the market by drug class segment and will continue to showcase excellent growth during the forecast period. In 2010, the USFDA gave approval to rituximab for the treatment of vasculitis disease in combination with prednisolone. The dosage regimen currently postulated for rituximab throughout the globe is the 4+2 protocol. Because of improved drug safety and efficacy, as well as the rising prevalence of antineutrophil cytoplasmic autoantibodies (ANCA) associated renal vasculitis in the elderly population, biologics accounted for 38.98% of the drug class segment's share in 2017. The only limitation of using rituximab therapy is its high cost, which hinders treatment in poor nations. Cyclophosphamide is used in patients showing resistance to rituximab therapy, and its relatively low treatment cost contributes to its market growth in developing nations.

Accurate Diagnosis of Small Vessel Vasculitis is Expected to Have the Highest Double-Digit CAGR During the Forecast Period

The challenge that usually occurs during the diagnosis of vasculitis is its overlapping symptoms with those of other inflammatory diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis, psoriatic arthritis, etc. Because of the non-specificity of serological markers and irrational tissue biopsy, there is ambiguity. Leucocytes are the primary inflammatory mediators that occur at the onset of vasculitis. The factors responsible for the accurate diagnosis of vasculitis are the technological advancement in diagnostic kits and the availability of skilled workers to perform the diagnosis. In 2017, large vessel vasculitis occupied 45% of the overall vasculitis disease epidemiology. The key attributes favoring the dominance of large vessel vasculitis are the rising prevalence of immunocompromised patients and medicine-related adverse events encountered in Caucasian populations. Small vessel vasculitis will showcase impressive growth during the forecast period owing to the increasing number of blood vessel aneurysm cases encountered in the Mongolian population and the rampant growth in the reported cases of small vessel vasculitis initiated due to pesticide and chemical exposure.

Raising public health awareness in Asia-Pacific will pave the way for rapid growth during the forecast period.

In 2017, North America occupied 35.96% of the global market share for vasculitis treatment. The key factors responsible for the North American market's growth are the rising prevalence of large vessel vasculitis, the presence of key players such as Bristol-Myers Squibb Company, Celgene Corporation, etc., and the existence of advanced healthcare facilities. Asia Pacific will be the fastest-growing market on account of a large geriatric population suffering from small vessel vasculitis, enhanced funding by pharmaceutical companies in the R&D segment, and rising public health awareness resulting in early diagnosis and treatment.
