The "Systemic Lupus Erythematosus Market Size, Share & Trends Analysis Report by Drug Class (Immunosuppressants, Biologics, Antimalarials, NSAIDs, Corticosteroids), By Route of Administration, and Segment Forecasts 2018 - 2025" report has been added to's offering.

The global systemic lupus erythematosus market size is expected to reach USD 3.08 billion by 2025, exhibiting a CAGR of 7% during the forecast period. Introduction of new biological therapies, which will add to treatment alternatives and medication costs, in the development pipeline is estimated to fuel revenue generation of the market. Certain new promising drugs that are currently in Phase III trials are anticipated to augment the market as these drugs may target the lupus nephritis patient subset with few effective alternatives and significant unmet needs to be met. This factor is likely to have a strong impact on the market as nearly 50% of SLE patients suffer with lupus nephritis. Use of approved biologic, Benlysta, through clinical studies, has revealed drastic improvements and substantial decrease in consumption of anti-inflammatory glucocorticoids in moderate SLE cases. GSK's current initiatives center on further increasing opportunities for Benlysta. The company is conducting indication expansion clinical trials, combination therapy studies with rituximab, and new product development, to widen opportunities for its therapy. In this direction, recent launch of Benlysta's subcutaneous formulation in several countries is expected to boost the SLE market over the forecast period.
