Asia-Pacific Uveitis Therapeutics Markets 2018-2023 - Increasing Prevalence, Continued Uptake of Biologics and Novel Pipeline Drugs to Drive the Market -

Research and Markets
Posted on: 15 Mar 18

The "Uveitis Therapeutics in Asia-Pacific Markets to 2023 - Increasing Prevalence, Continued Uptake of Biologics and Novel Pipeline Drugs to Drive the Market" report has been added to's offering.

The Asia-Pacific uveitis market will be valued at $405.5m in 2023, growing from $179m in 2016, at a compound annual growth rate of 12.4%.

It is a leading cause of blindness in both developed and developing countries and is the fifth most common cause of vision loss in the developed world. The uveitis market is characterized by a small selection of marketed drug options, consisting of corticosteroid therapies, immunosuppressive therapies and biologics. Historically, corticosteroid therapies have made up the bulk of the uveitis market.

Currently only one targeted therapy is available in the Asia-Pacific uveitis market, which is AbbVie's Humira (adalimumab). The late-stage uveitis pipeline is composed of Santen's Opsiria and Clearside Biomedical's CLS-TA, which are expected to be highly lucrative and address some of the unmet needs.

These new drugs will expand the options available to treat uveitis patients and contribute to overall market growth by offering novel treatment mechanisms, including new drug delivery routes and novel, non-corticosteroid drug molecules.
