Addiction Control – Drug Pipeline Analysis and Market Forecasts to 2015

Addiction Control Therapeutics Market is Forecasts to Show Significant Growth until 2015

Online PR News – 06-January-2010 – – The global addiction control therapeutics market was valued at $2.7 billion in 2008 and will be driven by the increasing addictive population. This market is expected to grow to $5.3 billion with a CAGR of 10% by year 2015.
As the market has fewer treatment options, patients and physicians are not left with much choice, which translates into high prescription rates of existing branded products and other generic products, which keeps market growing. In addition, the successful launch of some of the vaccines such as NicVAX, TA-NIC and TA-CD, currently in Phase II will significantly stimulate the market growth. However, the lack of any novel therapeutic with curative properties and the patent expiry of the current market therapies such as Suboxone/Subutex and Campral will pose a barrier for market growth.

The current competition is weak and the marketed products are unsuccessful in meeting the patients’ demands leaving behind a larger segment of unmet need. Because the products currently in market do not serve the unmet need of curing the disease, the market continues to present opportunities for stronger pipeline candidates. The current drugs are mainly offering brief withdrawal from addictive substances. Additionally, the current market is mainly driven by a smaller number of branded drugs and generics. This underexploited market holds significant market potential for any new entrants with disease modifying capability. Designing disease modifying drugs rather than drugs for brief withdrawal is one of key challenges for this market and could provide a significant opportunity for any company.
