Rheumatoid Arthritis: Global Drug Forecast and Market Analysis to 2027

The Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA) market is expected to grow from $23.3bn in 2017 to $27.8bn in 2027 across the eight major markets (US, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, the UK, Japan, and Australia) at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 1.8%. Between 2017 and 2027, modest growth in the RA market will be driven primarily by the anticipated approval and launch of seven pipeline therapies.

Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA) is an autoimmune disease that, due to a complex interplay of environmental, immunological, and genetic factors, causes chronic inflammation and progressive deformity of the joints over time.

Over the last 20 years, the RA market has grown prodigiously with the introduction and continued development of biologic medicines. This includes blockbuster drugs such as Pfizer/Amgen’s Enbrel (etanercept) and AbbVie’s Humira (adalimumab), which in 2017, together claimed over 50% of the total RA market ($12.3bn).

However, in recent years, growth in the RA market has begun to slacken and will likely continue to slow as a result of biosimilar erosion. Over the forecast period, revenue from the biosimilar class is expected to increase from 1% to 22% of total sales, growing at a CAGR of 34.9%. The expansion of the small molecule JAK inhibitor class and other novel oral agents will play especially powerful roles in shaping the RA market of the future. During the forecast period, it is projected that throughout the 8MM (US, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, the UK, Japan, and Australia), the JAK inhibitor class will grow at a CAGR of 7.9%.

Although the RA market is fairly mature, KOLs emphasized that there is still room for the standard of care to improve. Of particular note are the unmet needs for earlier diagnosis and treatment of the disease, more cost-effective medications, personalized strategies for treatment of active disease, and a better-defined approach to de-escalation of disease-modifying antirheumatic drugs (DMARDs) during remission.

The latest report "Rheumatoid Arthritis: Global Drug Forecast and Market Analysis to 2027", reveal that although the RA market is expected to grow during the forecast period, this growth will be significantly tempered by biosimilar erosion.
