Cytomegalovirus (CMV) Retinitis Therapeutics – Pipeline Assessment and Market Forecasts to 2017

CMV Retinitis Therapeutics Market is Forecasts to Show Negative Growth until 2017

Online PR News – 03-May-2011 – – GlobalData valued the global CMV retinitis therapeutics market at $525m in 2010, and forecasts it to decline at a negative CAGR of 3.8% to reach $400m in 2017. This predicted decline is primarily attributed to the patent expiry of the main branded product in the market. However, the impact of this patent expiry will only be seen in the last two years of the forecast. Before that, the market is expected to grow to reach $605m in 2015.

The patient population growth is very slow owing to an improvised HIV infection treatment option that brings the incidence of CMV retinitis down.

Competition in the CMV retinitis therapeutics market will remain weak in future. The current market is weak due to the low safety profile of the current marketed drugs. GlobalData anticipates that Hoffman La Roche will remain the leader in the CMV retinitis treatment drugs market until 2015. In 2015, the patent of its major drug for CMV retinitis, Valcyte, is due to expire. The current products display a low safety profile but a significantly high efficacy profile. These drugs are considered safer and more efficacious in the induction therapy, where there is a subsequent low unmet need of 25%. However, in the maintenance therapy the actual unmet need is higher considering the safety issues associated with the prolonged usage of the current drugs.
