Forecast Insight: Asthma/COPD - Pipeline potential outweighs downward pressure from generics

Fast Market Research recommends "Forecast Insight: Asthma/COPD - Pipeline potential outweighs downward pressure from generics" from Datamonitor, now available
Oct. 19, 2010 - PRLog -- Datamonitor estimates that in 2009 asthma/COPD sales reached $21.5 billion in the seven major markets. The next 10 years will see the dynamic pipeline fracture a market currently dominated by a handful of blockbuster brands. While patent expiries will create downward pressure, Datamonitor forecasts the asthma/COPD market will reach sales of $24.2 billion by 2019, with a 2009-2019 CAGR of 1.2%.

* Insight into market potential including current market trends, changing regulations and recent pipeline developments
* 10 year country, indication, and device specific forecasts for individual products, taking into account competitive positioning and key market events
* Profiles of currently marketed products including discussion of key opportunities and threats, with in-depth analysis of potential generic erosion
* Insight into late-stage pipeline products including analysis of the latest data from the European Respiratory Society September 2010 Congress


Substantial growth was seen in the asthma/COPD market from 2006-09, driven by combination products, with a CAGR of 10.4% in the seven major markets. Datamonitor estimates that 2009 sales reached $21.5 billion. Generic erosion will impact key brands, but pipeline products are forecast to drive growth, with the market reaching $24.2 billion by 2019.

In 2009, the ICS/LABA class made up 36% of asthma/COPD sales in the seven major markets, reaching $7.8 billion. Future blockbuster potential lies in once-daily ICS/LABAs, and GlaxoSmithKline's Relovair is the most advanced once-daily ICS/LABA, now in Phase III. It is expected to reach asthma/COPD sales of $3.2 billion by 2019.

The COPD market will see the first long-acting bronchodilator combinations, which will threaten the current gold standard Spiriva (tiotropium; Boehringer Ingelheim) and reach sales of $1.9 billion by 2019. With companies developing molecules for both monotherapies and combinations, careful brand positioning will be crucial.
