Product Description


OpportunityAnalyzer: Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension - Opportunity Analysis and Forecast to 2024


GlobalData estimates the 2014 sales for pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) at approximately $3.45 billion across the 7MM covered in this report, which include the US, 5EU and Japan. The market will grow moderately at a CAGR of 3.20% during the 10-year forecast period, generating sales of approximately $4.75 billion at the end of 2024. The US market is expected to grow the fastest of the three regions, recording a CAGR of 3.70% and generating around 75% of global sales in 2024. The major drivers for this growth across the 7MM will be the launch of Actelion's Uptravi and the increased use of double and triple combination therapy.


Key Questions Answered

- The level of unmet needs in the PAH market is significantly high. Will the pipeline drugs fulfil these unmet needs of the market? Key Opinion Leaders (KOLs) interviewed by GlobalData provide insights and highlight opportunities for drug developers.
- The 10-year forecast period will mark the launch of two late-stage pipeline drugs and the patent expirations of seven marketed drugs. How will the market be impacted? Which of the marketed and pipeline drugs will have the highest peak sales at the highest CAGR, and why?
- Is combination therapy the new standard-of-care in the PAH market? How will reimbursement affect the adoption of combination therapy in the different markets?

Key Findings

- The major drivers for growth across the 7MM in the PAH market during the forecast period will be the launch of the first-in-class prostacyclin receptor agonist, Uptravi marketed by Actelion and the increased use of combination therapy.
- KOLs interviewed by GlobalData opined that Uptravi has a promising future as a second-line therapy in the PAH market, and has the potential to displace oral treprostinil's market position.
- The highest revenue generators in the 7MM market at the end of 2024 will be Actelion's Veletri, Opsumit and Uptravi and Bayer's Adempas.
- In other interviews, KOLs highlighted that the greatest unmet need in the PAH disease space is the need to develop novel drugs with curative or disease-stabilizing properties.
- Low disease awareness, declining population in the 5EU and Japan, high cost of drugs and patent expirations of branded drugs are the major barriers for growth in the PAH market during the forecast period.
