Global anti-inflammatory therapeutics market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.9% from 2015 to 2020. The anti-inflammatory biologics segment held 3/5th of overall market in 2014. The Asia Pacific market would exhibit the highest CAGR of 8.5% during the forecast period.

Inflammation is the mechanism of innate immunity, which eliminates the cause of injury. Sometimes, the body’s defense system inappropriately triggers inflammation against its own cells, resulting in inflammatory autoimmune diseases. Reducing inflammation is one of the primary therapeutic strategies in acute as well as chronic diseases such as arthritis, psoriasis, and asthma. The rising incidences of autoimmune and respiratory conditions, extensive drug development pipeline, and increasing popularity of anti-inflammatory drugs with lesser side effects are the key factors driving the growth of the global anti-inflammatory therapeutics market. In addition, growing awareness about anti-inflammatory therapeutics and government initiatives, in the Asia pacific and LAMEA would further boost the market growth. However adverse effects associated with long term consumption of drugs namely NSAIDs and Corticosteroids would limit the market growth to a certain extent.The anti-inflammatory biologics hold the largest market share in 2014 and would also exhibit highest growth rate over the forecast period. This is due to the emergence of targeted anti-inflammatory biologics and biosimilars with lesser side effects. Market share of corticosteroids is projected to decrease by 2020, primarily due to withdrawal syndromes. Among indication market, arthritis would continue to lead through 2020 due to high incidence rate and preference of anti-inflammatory biologics for the treatment of arthritis.

In developed economies, such as North America and Europe, branded drugs are preferred over generics whereas there has been a reverse trend in developing economies. This is evident from the fact that about 50% of the anti-inflammatory biologics market has its presence in the North America, whereas, Asia Pacific and LAMEA collectively accounted for 35% share in NSAIDs market as compared to about just 25% share in branded biologics market in 2014.

Companies are adopting drug pipeline development and product launch as key strategies to overcome patent expiries of existing drugs and gain additional market share. Key companies profiled in the report are Pfizer Inc., Abbvie Inc., Johnson & Johnson, GlaxoSmithKline, Merck & CO., Inc. Novartis, F. Hoffman La Roche AG, Eli Lily and Company, AstraZeneca PLC .and Amgen”
