INTRODUCTION

STUDY OBJECTIVES

The orphan drug market is one of the fastest-growing segments in the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industry. BCC’s goal in conducting this study is to provide an overview of the current and future global market for orphan drugs. The key objective is to present a comprehensive analysis of current orphan drugs and those under development as important therapies and treatments for rare diseases.

This report explores present and future strategies and regulations within the orphan drug market, advances in the market, the setbacks, the current situation and the needs of the market. The market for each drug listed by its generic name/active ingredient and approved indication(s) is also analyzed in this report.

A detailed analysis of the structure of the orphan drug industry has been conducted. Revenues are broken down by region drug type (i.e., biological and nonbiological), active ingredient and area of medical application. Sales figures are estimated for the five-year period from 2012 through 2017.

Applications for orphan drugs are also discussed in the report, with an emphasis on the usage of the drugs in various disease segments. The report also covers significant patents and their allotments in each category.

REASONS FOR DOING THIS STUDY

Extensive research in the field of orphan drugs has resulted in therapeutic treatments for a number of rare diseases. Most of the big pharmaceutical companies have now begun to explore the advantages of orphan drugs as a major source of profit and a steady market.

R&D spending, competition and new technologies are increasing. Advances, new product launches and assistance from regulatory bodies are positively impacting the growth of the market for orphan drugs in the near term. This study examines these factors.
