The psoriasis drugs market is expected to register a CAGR of 9.3% during the forecast period. The primary factors that are responsible for the growth of this market include the increasing disease burden and demand for psoriasis medicines in emerging economies and the increase in psoriasis research and pipeline drugs.
- Among all these factors, one of the factors expected to have a major impact on the market growth is the increasing use of combination therapies. Research is continuing on the combination therapies approach. However, studies conducted suggest that it often eases psoriasis symptoms more effectively than either treatment by themselves. Biologics usually take a while to work.
- Combining a biologic with a faster-acting systemic drug, such as cyclosporine, is usually much more effective and safer. With faster, longer-lasting results and fewer side effects, requiring lower doses, many doctors are prescribing combination therapies, which is, in turn, expected to drive the psoriasis drugs market. However, factors such as the side effects of existing medications may have a negative impact on the market growth.
