Global Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis Industry to 2029 - Opportunity Analysis and Forecasts -

DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The "Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis - Opportunity Analysis and Forecasts to 2029 (Event Driven Update)" report has been added to's offering.

Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) is the most common subtype of idiopathic interstitial pneumonias (IIPs), which belong to a group of rare diseases termed interstitial lung diseases (ILDs). Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) is a new and rapidly-establishing market, which, before 2011 was non-existent, with no approved pharmaceutical treatments for the chronic, debilitating disease, which has an abysmal prognosis. However, the last decade has seen a period of explosive growth in the IPF market following the entry of two pharmacological small molecule treatments; Roche's Esbriet and Boehringer Ingelheim's Ofev. The landscape will continue to evolve and the increasing uptake of current therapies and approval of new products will be the primary drivers of growth over the forecast period.

The catalyst for this event-driven update is the discontinuation of GLPG-1690 by Gilead/Galapagos for development in all indications, including IPF and Systemic Sclerosis (SSc) in Q1 2021. Due to IPF's high clinical unmet needs, the discontinuation of GLPG-1690 represents a major setback in the disease space, since ziritaxestat was expected to be the first late-state pipeline product to launch for IPF in the next several years. The next earliest pipeline agent set to launch is pamrevlumab in 2024.

Key Questions Answered
