The osteoporosis therapeutics market is the primary reason for the continued growth of the global bone metabolism sector, according to a report from specialists in healthcare analysis, GBI Research.
The new report* shows that the osteoporosis treatment sector accounted for 68% of worldwide bone metabolism revenue for 2010 – far out outweighing the other components of the market, Paget's disease of bone, hyperparathyroidism and bone metastases.
The strong performance of the osteoporosis market is expected to continue, with GBI Research predicting it will help the overall bone metabolism therapeutics market reach a value of $27.1 billion by 2018.
Due to a strong pipeline, however, the bone metastases market is expected to contribute more significantly in the coming years. GBI Research’s report indicates that while the bone metastases treatments available at the moment are adequate, there are gaps in for these potentially impressive options.
There are currently 47 molecules in various stages of clinical development for bone metastases and many of these are First-In-Class.
Xeva is expected to make a big impact in the European market following market authorisation, whereas late stage pipeline molecule, Xgeva, has been approved and is currently making an impression in the US and Japan. Molecules Alpharadin and Orazol, both expected to hit in 2014, also look very promising.
In contrast, the global hyperparathyroidism therapeutics is expected to show less impressive growth, declining at a negative CAGR of 1.3% from $1.32 billion in 2010 to $1.17 billion in 2018. This downturn is attributed primarily to the patent expiry of the three approved treatments, Sensipar, Zemplar and Hectorol during this time period.
