US Orphan Drug Market Discussed in New KuicK Research Report Available at MarketPublishers.com

06 Feb 2014 • by Natalie Aster

LONDON –  The USA was the first country where a special law for governing orphan drugs – the Orphan Drug Act of 1983 – was introduced, leading to an upsurge in the popularity of orphan drug products. The FDA’s efforts to provide incentives to the pharma companies in order to attract them have been one of the key forces driving the US orphan drug sector. Currently, there are nearly 200 new drugs assigned the “orphan” status in the US annually. Most pharma giants have made their strong presence in this industry through M&As. Novartis is the only company with the maximum number of orphan designations. This company also boasts of highly successful Gleevec (imatinib) – the drug mostly used to treat multiple rare forms of cancer.

By 2018-end, the US market is most likely to see a growing number of pharma companies and orphan drug products, with some of them including the mega-blockbuster drug Rituxan from Roche, Alexion’s Soliris, and Kalydeco from Vertex. Thus, with more and more pharma companies coming into the orphan drug market and  the  existing players  adding  innovative  drugs  to  the  list  in  the short run,  the competition in the marketplace is expected to intensify significantly, resulting in the availability of better quality drugs at lower prices.
