Global Systemic Lupus Erythematosus (SLE) Treatment Market Dynamics

Rising incidence of SLE is one of the major factors driving the growth of the global SLE treatment market. According to a study published in the Expert Review of Clinical Immunology in 2017, the global incidence rate varied from about 0.3–23.7 per 100,000 individuals and the prevalence rates varied in the range from 6.5 to 178.0 per 100,000 people. The key companies operating in the global market are entering into collaborations for research and development of systemic lupus erythematosus, and this is expected to support the global market growth in the approaching years. For instance, in 2015, a genomic mapping company, 23andMe, Inc., collaborated with Pfizer, Inc. to study and understand the genetics of lupus thereby, to develop treatment for it. In 2012, Alliance for Lupus Research and Pfizer’s Centers for Therapeutic Innovation collaborated to discover new therapies for patients living with systemic lupus erythematosus. Increasing approvals for products for the treatment of SLE is another factor expected to aid in growth of the market. For instance, GlaxoSmithKline, in July 2017, received U.S.FDA approval for the subcutaneous form of its biologic drug belimumab for treatment of systemic lupus erythematosus. Clinical guidelines to include biologics in the treatment of systemic lupus erythematosus would further aid in market growth. Multidisciplinary group consisting international experts in various branches such as internal medicine, rheumatology, nephrology, dermatology, pediatrics, and cardiology published recommendations in journal Autoimmune Review in 2017, for the use of biologics in patients with systemic lupus erythematosus, according to which biologic drugs such as abatacept, rituximab, or tocilizumab can be used after evaluating patient profile. However, high costs associated with the treatment of systemic lupus erythematosus makes the treatment unaffordable, which is restraining factor for the global market growth.
