Nearly 70% of the psoriasis patient population is prone to psoriatic arthritis, and up to 20% of arthritis patients are susceptible to acquire psoriasis, according to the recent findings of the Arthritis Foundation.
The rate of increasing burden of psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis on healthcare industry has been boosting clinical research in the field of psoriatic arthritis, in recent years.
Sustained adoption of conventional disease modifying anti-rheumatic drugs (DMARDs), especially in cost sensitive regions, is projected to push the demand for psoriatic arthritis treatment in coming years.

Role of Strong Product Pipeline & Mounting Clinical Research Investments
Over 20 drugs for psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis are currently in the phase II of pipeline, whereas more than 28 are in phase III of clinical trial, as indicated by the National Psoriasis Foundation. However, around 24 drugs have already received FDA approval for inclusion in the treatment for psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis.
While such a strong product pipeline continues to drive the demand for psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis treatment, a new research points to the shifting focus of several drug manufacturers to competitive pricing strategies, in an effort to attain widespread acceptance in coming years. Recently, Future Market Insights released a new intelligence based on the analysis of global psoriatic arthritis treatment market. The study forecasts a robust over-7% yearly growth for the market in 2019.
Industry Behemoths Cover More than 55% Market Value Share
In a fairly consolidated global landscape of psoriatic arthritis treatment market, more than 55% share of the total revenue is accounted by industry giants such as Novartis AG and AbbVie Inc. that include biologics in their core portfolio. While market leaders are maintaining focus on FDA approvals and clinical trials, research also points to the increasing importance of diverse pricing strategies.
Moreover, prominent players in psoriatic arthritis treatment market are likely to augment investments in R&D of biosimilars, biologics, and TNF (tumor necrosis factor) inhibitors to target regional markets. A number of leading drug manufacturers are also maintaining sizable investments in DMARDs that are scheduled for market entry in next few years. This is perceived as a strong factor improving growth prospects of psoriatic arthritis treatment market, according to the report.
