Research and Markets: Asthma (Event Driven)

DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of Decision Resources, Inc's new report "Asthma (Event Driven)" to their offering.

With a large and growing patient population, the asthma market is one of the most lucrative drug markets in the pharmaceutical industry. However, generic and/or branded-generic price erosion, increased product competition, and a difficult reimbursement environment will stabilize the asthma market over the forecast period despite opportunities for growth.

The uptake of the first once-daily, long-acting beta2 agonist (LABA)/inhaled corticosteroid (ICS) combinations and novel anticytokine therapies within the next ten years will fuel growth of the market. Despite a high level of satisfaction with current therapies, opportunity still exists for the development of new agents that target the heterogeneous population of patients with severe, corticosteroid-refractory asthma. An emerging therapy that serves even a niche of this underserved segment of the asthma market will have considerable sales potential.
