A rare disease is the one that occurs uncommonly or rarely in the general population. However, there exists no clear definition for categorizing “rare diseases” and is usually defined on the basis of the prevalence, and some other factors including the severity of disease and availability of treatment options. Rare diseases are often serious, chronic and progressive. Orphan drugs are medicinal products intended for the diagnosis, prevention or treatment of rare diseases. These drugs are referred to be “orphan” as under normal conditions because these drugs are not cost effective to be developed by the pharmaceuticals industry, intended for a small number of patients suffering from rare conditions.

Increasing sales of prescription drugs, substantial benefits for new entrants in rare disease drug market, increased spending on medicines, rising healthcare expenditure and improving economic conditions of nations are some of the significant factors driving growth of the Orphan drugs market. However, the growth of the market is hindered by certain challenges including tougher regulatory approvals, limitation on charging higher prices and no approved drugs for several rare diseases including Polychethemia Vera (PV).

The global orphan drugs market is expected to see numerous developments including approval of several Ultra-Rare drugs, increasing scope of Gene therapy, development of drugs for rare blood disease, higher success prospects for Hematology compared to Solid Tumors, attractive pricing option for orphan drug competitors and striking opportunities in developing orphan drugs.
