Adalimumab Market Drivers

The growing prevalence of arthritis disorders is boosting the market growth

According to the CDC, 54.4 million US individuals have some type of arthritis, a number that is projected to rise to 78 million by 2040. Disorders associated with arthritis include inflammation of one or more joints, resulting in pain, swelling, and stiffness. Adalimumab is used to decrease the pain and swelling as well as slow down the progress of arthritis. Adalimumab is primarily used for treating active enthesitis-related arthritis, Rheumatoid arthritis, polyarticular juvenile idiopathic arthritis, Osteoarthritis, and others. Growing geriatric population, sedentary lifestyle, and growing prevalence of obesity increase the risk of psoriasis and rheumatoid arthritis. The increasing prevalence of Crown’s disease is estimated to propel the market growth as Crohn’s disease increases the risk for arthritis. According to the Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation, approximately 30% of Crohn’s disease patients develop arthritis, thereby driving the Adalimumab Industry growth.

Skin Disorder Proliferation is Driving Market Growth

According to the World Health Organisation (WHO), around 900 million people in the world suffer from skin diseases at any given point in time. Adalimumab targets a protein in the body called tumor necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-alpha), which is a key player in the inflammatory process that triggers skin disorders including psoriasis. Psoriasis is a skin disorder that causes red, itchy scaly spots on the knees, elbows, trunk, and scalp. Adalimumab suppresses the hyperactive immune system response that triggers psoriasis. As per the estimations of the National Psoriasis Foundation, 125 million people worldwide which accounts for 2 to 3 percent of the total population, have psoriasis, propelling the market growth.
