Global Autoimmune and Inflammatory Immunomodulators Market 2016-2020 with AbbVie, Johnson & Johnson, Amgen, F. Hoffmann-La Roche & Pfizer Dominating

/EIN News/ -- Dublin, Dec. 23, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "Global Autoimmune and Inflammatory Immunomodulators Market 2016-2020" report to their offering.

The global autoimmune and inflammatory immunomodulators market to grow at a CAGR of 7.01% during the period 2016-2020.

The report covers the present scenario and the growth prospects of the global autoimmune and inflammatory immunomodulators market for 2016-2020. To calculate the market size, the report considers the revenue generated from the sales of drugs that are expected to be launched into the market along with the decline in revenues from the patent expiries of the marketed drugs during the forecast period. The report also includes a discussion of the key vendors operating in this market.

One of latest trends in the market is emergence of oral agents likely to improve patient outcomes. The advent of oral agents in the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis and IBD are expected to have a positive impact on the market growth. For instance, JAK inhibitors such as Xeljanz are expected to become standard therapies in the future, owing to the reduced complications during the administration of drug. Many individuals are reluctant to use injectable medications. Therefore, vendors are increasingly focusing on developing oral agents for the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis. For example, in February 2016, Pfizer received the US FDA approval of Xeljanz XR (tofacitinib citrate), an oral JAK inhibitor, for the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis. As there is an increased need for oral therapies, the new product will substantially fuel the market growth in the future.

According to the report, one of the primary drivers in the market is strong adoption of TNF-alpha inhibitors and B-cell inhibitors. The physicians prefer to adopt TNF-alpha inhibitors and B-cell inhibitors, owing to their established clinical profiles. For instance, AbbVie's Humira, targeted at autoimmune and other inflammatory indications, reported a worldwide revenue of approximately $14 billion in 2015, indicating an approximate growth of 12% year-on-year (YoY).

The strong growth of Humira is attributed to the increasing prescription volume across various therapy areas, including rheumatoid arthritis and IBD. Also, TNF-alpha inhibitors such as Cimzia are posting substantial revenues owing to the increased adoption rates. Cimzia, a treatment for rheumatoid arthritis and Crohn's disease and other autoimmune diseases, reported revenue of $1.2 billion, indicating a YoY growth of 36% (base currencies).
