New Market Report: OpportunityAnalyzer: Endometriosis - Opportunity Analysis and Forecasts to 2017

Recently published research from GlobalData, "OpportunityAnalyzer: Endometriosis - Opportunity Analysis and Forecasts to 2017", is now available at Fast Market Research

 

Boston, MA -- (ReleaseWire) -- 02/20/2014 -- Endometriosis is a gynecological disorder affecting women of childbearing age. This inflammatory condition is characterized by the growth of endometrial tissues outside of the uterus, and can cause chronic painful menstruation, painful intercourse, and infertility. For many women, endometriosis-associated pain can be so debilitating that it affects their ability to perform daily functions and significantly deters their quality of life.

The KOL's agree- patients with endometriosis have significant unmet needs due to the lack of approved treatment options that have both continuous efficacy and a favorable long-term safety profiles. Although the KOLs are optimistic about the potential approval of GnRH antagonists, they still foresee that unmet needs will persist. Being orally active is a major benefit for GnRH antagonists. As such GlobalData foresees they will rapidly shift market share away from GnRH agonists. However their price will limit penetration in other patient segments. Ultimately, since none of the marketed, off-label, or pipeline drugs are curative, significant opportunity will remain for safe, efficacious therapies that target the root cause of the condition.

In 2012, the global market was largely dominated by the US, with sales of $1.1bn. Combined sales in the 5EU were estimated to be $137.6m. By 2017, GlobalData forecasts global endometriosis therapeutics sales to grow slowly to $1.2bn at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 0.19%.

Highlights

Key Questions Answered

- The endometriosis therapeutics market has had weak competition due to a lack of approved therapies, and high rates of off-label drug use. What are the underlying unmet needs in this market? What opportunities will remain after elagolix is launched?
- The late-stage pipeline is comprised of GnRH antagonists. What sort of impact will these therapies have on this market? Which will emerge as market leaders? How will these products fare against existing therapies?
- The endometriosis therapeutics market has considerable unmet needs due to low diagnosis rates, minimal disease awareness, and lack of a well-tolerated long-term treatment options. Which drivers and barriers will affect the market landscape? What trends can be expected in each of US and 5EU?

Key Findings

- The single most important driver of growth will be the launch of novel agents with superior safety and more convenient oral formulations
- GnRH agonists will rapidly shift market share from GnRH agonists however their price will limit penetration in other patient share segments
- Incomplete knowledge regarding disease pathogenesis and pathophysiology creates a major obstacle in the development of novel therapeutics
