Dublin, June 21, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Plaque Psoriasis: Global Drug Forecast and Market Analysis to 2027" report has been added to's offering.

"Plaque Psoriasis: Global Drug Forecast and Market Analysis to 2027", provides key metrics for Plaque Psoriasis (Epidemiology, Market Size, Product Pipeline, Key Events, Competitive Analysis) in the seven major pharmaceutical markets (7MM) covered in this report-the US, 5EU (France, Germany, Italy, Spain, and the UK), and Japan-during the forecast period from 2017-2027.

There is a high level of unmet need that is beginning to be addressed by pharmaceutical companies and this in turn is driving the modest growth of the global Plaque psoriasis market. Global Plaque psoriasis market is expected to grow from $16.2bn in 2017 to $24.2bn in 2027 across the seven major markets (7MM - The US, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, the UK and Japan) at a compound annual growth rate of 4.1%.

Psoriasis is an incurable, chronic and systemic inflammatory skin disorder with a prevalence of 2-3% worldwide. The exact cause of psoriasis is unknown, although it is believed that environmental factors, skin barrier disruptions, and immune dysfunctions are key components that induce the development of psoriasis. The most common form of psoriasis is plaque psoriasis (psoriasis vulgaris), which is the focus of this report.

The Plaque psoriasis market is currently very dynamic, with novel pipeline therapies being developed. As well as the recent launch of UCB's Cimzia and Sun Pharma's Ilumya, will challenge the current tumor necrosis factor (TNF), IL-17 and IL-23 inhibitors, and small molecule compounds.

However, there are still a number of unmet clinical needs in the Plaque psoriasis market, especially relating to the lack of oral therapies and safe topical therapies. These needs have been emphasized by various key opinion leaders (KOLs) interviewed. Furthermore, KOLs have highlighted that there is a lack of safe and efficacious treatment alternatives for pregnant and breastfeeding women.

Blockbuster drugs such as Amgen's Enbrel (etanercept), Janssen's Remicade (infliximab) and AbbVie's Humira (adalimumab) have dominated the Plaque psoriasis market for over 10 years. Nevertheless, this is set to change as there has been increasing development of new therapeutics, particularly within the IL-17 and IL-23 classes. Furthermore, companies are racing to bring their biosimilars to the market. As a result, it will be difficult for any one product to become and remain a market leader in a heavily competitive market.

There are many companies that are striving to enter the Plaque psoriasis market and many of the drugs target moderate and severe Plaque psoriasis patients. However, the most neglected segment is the mild severity. There are limited treatment options other than topical and small molecule therapeutics and this is a high unmet need.
