Latin America Adalimumab Market to Reach US$1.18 bn by 2023; Rheumatoid Arthritis, Psoriasis Represent Largest Application Segments: Transparency Market Research

Albany, NY, Feb. 25, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- According to a new market report published by Transparency Market Research “LATAM Adalimumab Market - Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends and Forecast 2015 - 2023,” the LATAM adalimumab market was valued at US$994.8 mn in 2014 and is expected to reach US$1,186.4 mn by 2023, at a CAGR of 0.4% during the forecast period from 2015 to 2023.

Consistent technological sophistications in development of biosimilar followed by increasing incidence and prevalence of various medical conditions have rendered encouraging growth opportunities for various biological drugs and other innovative biopharmaceuticals. The LATAM adalimumab market by application has been categorized on the basis of the usage of adalimumab for treatment of various medical conditions. Rheumatoid arthritis, psoriasis, Crohn’s disease, and ulcerative colitis constitute the major disorders where adalimumab is prescribed for the treatment. Factors such as improved diagnosis rate followed by the introduction of efficient biologic drugs constitute the significant drivers favoring the market growth.

Adalimumab was first approved in the U.S. for the treatment of aforementioned medical conditions. Currently, this is marketed in more than 60 countries. However, owing to the biologic nature of the drug, it results in high cost and low accessibility in emerging economies such as LATAM and Asia Pacific. On the other hand, with the probable entry of the adalimumab biosimilars post the patent expiry the low costs up to less than 25% to 35% of the originator drugs will boost the uptake and prescription of adalimumab for the treatment of above mentioned medical conditions.
