Executive Summary

Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension (PAH) is a disease in which high blood pressure occurs in the right ventricle of the heart and the pulmonary arteries that supply blood to the lungs. The increase in pressure is caused by constriction and narrowing of the small pulmonary arteries. In 2005, standard of care was characterized by intravenous treatment aimed at reducing symptoms, not addressing root cause. Now, new treatments are available that go beyond symptom management to treat the underlying cause of PAH. With advancement in the standard of care, patients are able to maintain active lifestyles with a reduced risk of serious heart events associated with PAH.

In 2001, the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved Tracleer as the treatment for patients with PAH. Actelion develop the Tracleer and the sales of Tracleer grew rapidly due to a high patient switch over from off-label drugs to Tracleer. Tracleer, the major revenue generating drug of the PAH market is expected to go off patent by 2015.

Despite an increase in per-member-per-year spend from 2013 to 2014; trend for medications used to treat pulmonary hypertension is expected to be sluggish again in 2015, chiefly because of the market saturation of generic sildenafil. The global PAH market is expected to achieve highest sales till now in the year 2017 due to imminent release of the PAH drug called Uptravi (Selexipag) in 2016, which is anticipated to potentially drive the growth of the total market till 2019. Popularity of combinational therapies is also likely to drive the market in the aforementioned period.
