Frost & Sullivan: High Uptake of New Drug Therapies and Aging Population Expansion Keep the U.S. Retinal Therapeutics Market Buoyant
Date:5/3/2012

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., May 3, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Alarm bells are ringing loud and clear as diabetes has grown to epidemic proportions worldwide, triggering intensive ophthalmic research into vision-compromising comorbidities. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention predicts that diabetic retinopathy will triple from 5.5 million in 2005 to 16.0 million in 2050. As diabetes is the leading cause of blindness in working age people, improved treatments are urgently needed. The presence of novel biopharmaceuticals as well as advancements in formulation technology has boosted the outlook for the U.S. retinal therapeutics market.

Analysis from Frost & Sullivan's (http://www.pharma.frost.com) U.S. Retinal Therapeutics Market research estimates revenues in the age-related macular degeneration (AMD) segment of the market to reach $2.26 billion by 2016. Revenues in the diabetic macular edema (DME) segment are expected to reach $455.2 million by 2016.

"While the cannibalization of Roche/Genentech profits (i.e., Avastin and Lucentis) may sound like a market challenge for that company versus a driver for the market, the very availability of these two highly effective, novel medications is expected to continue to drive this previously underserved market," said a Frost & Sullivan research analyst. "Moreover, the absence of laws and regulations permitting the manufacture of generic equivalents of biologics ensures that these therapies will remain under patent protection until 2019."
