Psoriasis is a common, chronic, non-communicable skin disease, with no clear cause or cure. It is autoimmune inflammatory disorder resulting in over production of skin cells, leading to an itchy and painful skin condition characterized by inflammation, red lesions, and plaques formation on the skin. The disease can be categorized in to two major types, plaque psoriasis, and psoriatic arthritis. According to a study published by Celgene Corporation, about 30% of the patients with psoriasis develop inflammatory condition of joints, known as psoriatic arthritis.

Rapidly increasing geriatric population, growing prevalence of plaque psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis, the huge pipeline of biologic and biosimilar products, favorable reimbursement policies, and growing prescription volume of the biologic products are some of the major factors contributing the psoriasis treatment market growth. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), the prevalence of psoriasis is estimated to vary between 0.09% to 11.0% across all nations, making psoriasis a serious global problem. In most of the developed countries, the prevalence of psoriasis is between 1.5 to 5.0%, and an upward trend in the disease prevalence has been observed in recent years.

COVID-19 Pandemic to Have a Minimal Impact on the Market

The COVID-19 outbreak has no significant impact on the psoriasis treatment market. According to the companies involved in the development and manufacturing of the psoriasis treatment products, there is no significant impact on the sales of the products especially biologics in first quarter. The government has significantly relaxed regulations around telemedicine so that the physicians can continue to provide care for the patients during this pandemic. Telehealth visits ensure that the psoriatic patients are monitored and also regulate the medication of patients by reminders and alarms, especially biologics and oral systemic. This is projected to revolutionize the psoriasis treatment guidelines and lead to a new mode of care in the forthcoming years.

Strong Emphasis on Developing Biologics by Key Players to Spur the Market Growth

Globally, patients are seeking an efficient treatment of psoriasis. The introduction of biologics has revolutionized the management of psoriasis as they target the specific points in the inflammatory pathway and are associated with fewer side effects. Due to this, several key players have shifted their focus on the development of biologics. Biologics development is also associated with an easy approval process when it comes to a new drug. For instance, in November 2019, AbbVie announced to showcase its studies of RINVOQ (upadacitinib), HUMIRA (adalimumab) and SKYRIZI (risankizumab) at the 2019 American College of Rheumatology/Association of Rheumatology Professionals (ACR/ARP) Annual Meeting, November 8-13, in Atlanta. Hence, such innovations are likely to propel the demand for biologics in the coming years.


Growing Prevalence of Psoriasis to Fuel the Market Growth

The rise in the prevalence of psoriasis around the globe has created a huge demand for safe and effective therapies for the treatment of psoriasis. According to the National Psoriasis Foundation (NPF), it is estimated that in 2017, around 125 million people across the globe were suffering from psoriasis, out of which 10-20% of the population developed psoriasis arthritis. Moreover, a recent wave of biologicals in the treatment of psoriatic conditions is likely to double the psoriasis drugs market by the end of 2027 leveraging a great market potential for investment in the novel product developments and clinical trials.

Surge in Biological Therapy Approvals is Augmenting Market Expansion

Biologics or biological therapy is one of the most adopted treatment options for psoriasis. Several large scale companies have identified introduction of new products as an ideal opportunitiy for market growth. Additionally, growing strategic collaborations and mergers among key players in the market have yielded several innovative products. For instance, in February 2018, UCB S.A. presented its new data on CIMZIA, and another key pipeline molecule, bimekizumab, at the 2018 American Academy of Dermatology (AAD) Annual Meeting in San Diego, CA. This data demonstrated positive treatment results of CIMZIAin adults with the moderate-to-severe chronic plaque psoriasis.


High Medication Costs to Restrict Market Growth           

Psoriasis is a lifelong disease and leads to a considerable expense. According to the economic analysis for the treatment of psoriasis, the total can extend from $1,218.6 to $9,454.3. The proportion of medication costs is approximately 20% of the total costs. Therefore, despite the rising prevalence of the disease, high medication costs for its treatment is on the major factor responsible for the reduction of market growth during the forecast period.
