PharmaPoint: Multiple Sclerosis - China Drug Forecast and Market Analysis to 2022

Summary

GlobalData has released its new Country report, "PharmaPoint: Multiple Sclerosis - China Drug Forecast and Market Analysis to 2022". Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a chronic, inflammatory neurological disorder characterized pathologically by demyelination, axonal transection and neurodegeneration within the central nervous system. With curative therapy still elusive, current disease management is dependent on life-long pharmacotherapy with disease-modifying therapies (DMT). The dominance of first-line injectable DMTs, including the interferon beta (IFNß) agents: Bayer's Betaseron/Betaferon (IFNß-1b), Biogen's Avonex (IFNß-1a) and Merck's Rebif (IFNß-1a), and Teva's Copaxone (glatiramer acetate), has been a salient feature of the MS therapeutics market. However, the competitive landscape is undergoing significant change with the emergence of oral therapies, several pipeline products with notable efficacies, and looming generics/biosimilars following the patent expiries of key branded products during the forecast period. In addition, the entry of new companies such as Sanofi/Genzyme and F. Hoffmann-La-Roche /Genentech will challenge the position of the established players in the MS marketplace.

Similar to India, China has a low prevalence of MS, despite its large population. However, a large proportion of physicians surveyed in this report still use the Poser criteria, which relies almost exclusively on clinical examination. Therefore, given the lack of sensitive tools, such as MRI, to aid in diagnosis, it is highly possible that the actual size of the MS population in China is significantly underestimated. The key drivers of growth in this market include government initiatives to increase healthcare access, the increased availability of advanced diagnostic tools due to strong economic growth in the country, as well as the launch of new oral DMTs. These factors are expected to collectively enhance treatment rates during the forecast period.
