Hepatitis B Virus (HBV) Therapeutics – Japan Drug Forecast and Market Analysis to 2024


Chronic hepatitis B virus (HBV) infection is a serious chronic liver disease caused by the failure of viral clearance following acute HBV infection. Despite the availability of effective prophylactic vaccines, the disease remains a serious global health concern, with estimated over 350 million people worldwide currently living with this condition. In addition, patients with chronic hepatitis B are at a high risk of developing life-threatening complications including liver cirrhosis and hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). In 2010, an estimated 786,000 HBV-related deaths occurred worldwide.

Available treatment for chronic hepatitis B focuses on viral suppression, and include oral nucleos(t)ide analogues (NAs) and pegylated interferon (PEG-IFN). The two therapy classes have distinctive strengths and weaknesses. Nevertheless, most patients are using long-term NA treatment, and suffer from issues such as high accumulated treatment cost and low compliance.

The Japanese chronic hepatitis B therapeutic market was valued at $150.5m in 2014. The launch of new therapies will strongly drive the growth of the Japanese chronic hepatitis B market over the forecast period, with GlobalData expecting the market entries of Gilead鈥檚 TAF, Arrowhead鈥檚 ARC-520, and Gilead鈥檚 GS-9620 in 2020, 2023, and 2024, respectively. The approval of these drugs will occur later than in the US, which will limit the impact of the sales of the new therapies in Japan.
