Parenteral Qualifies as Default Route of Administration

According to the Fact.MR study, preference for the parenteral route of administration will be 83% more than the topical and oral routes combined in 2020, on account of the high precision of dosage offered by this route, which leads to better patient outcomes.

Cost and recovery time, in turn, are turning out to be key determiners in the selection of route of administration.

Following this, increased availability of biosimilar products at competitive rates through parenteral routes is projected to retain high preference for the injection of drugs during the forecast period.

On a relative note, patients’ proclivity for oral arthritis therapeutics is likely to remain moderate, as this route is preferred in cases wherein patients are required to follow a long-term course of medication.

Additionally, the introduction of topical NSAIDs for the treatment of joint pains will offer low-to-moderate stimulus to the topical route of administration in the arthritis therapeutics market during the forecast period.

Steep Rise in Drug Prices to Take a Toll on Health of Arthritis Therapeutics Market

Advanced antibody therapeutics have been outperforming the sales of disease-modifying antirheumatic drugs (DMARD) in recent times, on account of their relatively high efficiency.

However, better outcomes offered by these drugs comes at a price, a steep one indeed, which accommodates a range of US$ 1,000 to US$ 3,000 per month.

The price of the popular drug used for treatment of arthritis - Humira - increased by 100% from US$ 19,000 a year in 2012 to US$ 38,000 a year in 2018, as per data presented by SSR Health.

This price rise is not limited to only Humira. Enbrel saw an 80% hike in its price since 2013, as reported by the Alliance of Community Health Plans.

Given the long-term recommendation of these drugs to control arthritis, a perpetual increase in prices could shake the monthly budgets of patients, and, is hence, diverting their attention towards complementary and alternative therapies.
