Global revenue from the dermatology market is forecast to increase from $19.8 billion in 2016 to $36.6 billion in 2023, at a compound annual growth rate of 9.13%.

Global Dermatology Drugs Market to 2023 – Growth Driven by Increased Uptake of Interleukin Receptor Inhibitors for Psoriasis and Atopic Dermatitis provides an introduction to dermatology, including disease epidemiology, symptoms, etiology, pathophysiology, co-morbidities and complications. Disease classification and methods of diagnosis are also provided.

There are 850 products in the dermatology pipeline with a disclosed stage of development, but the majority of these drugs are at an early stage of development. Some 42% of the pipeline is in the Preclinical stage, while 14% is in the discovery stage. However, 32% of the pipeline is in clinical development, but only 3% are in the Pre-registration stage and less than half are novel.

Four drugs that were approved for psoriasis are Cosentyx, Otezla, Eucrisa and Taltz. The most notable of the four are Cosentyx and Otezla, which were approved in 2015 and 2014, respectively, and are forecast to generate $3.8 billion and $2.7 billion from the therapy area in 2023, respectively. The two most recently approved psoriasis treatments, Taltz and Eucrisa, are not expected to achieve the same level of commercial success as Cosentyx or Otezla because they are entering a market that is already saturated with entrenched competitors that have reduced the level of unmet need.

Dermatology therapy area is dominated by top 20 pharma companies. In 2016 the most commercially successful companies in the therapy area were Johnson & Johnson, AbbVie, Amgen, Novartis and Pfizer. Across the forecast period these companies will continue to generate high revenue, but the companies will all see their market shares change.
