In 2009, the Global Osteoporosis Drug Market was worth USD 6.8 billion, with Bisphosphonate class of drugs leading the market. In the overall Bisphosphonate, ibandronate (Bonviva/Boniva; Roche) and zoledronate (Aclasta/Zometa; Novartis) accounted healthy market share and showed an average sales growth rate of about of 20% in the past 2 years.
Amgen's Denosumab is the recent entrant to the Osteoporosis treatment market, following its approval from the U.S. and European Union (also approved for bone loss associated with prostate cancer). Denosumab is expected to compete directly with the Bisphosphonate drug class. However, initial uptake of Denosumab is likely to be as second-line therapy, mostly in patients who are intolerant to Bisphosphonate. In addition to the treatment of Osteoporosis, there is substantial potential for Denosumab for treating bone loss in patients with cancer. Denosumab market is expected to reach USD 3.8 billion in 2015.
Our research indicates that the Osteoporosis drug pipeline is going strong with various phases of clinical development. Phase III has first-in-class products such as odanacatib, which possess a novel mechanism of action to combat Osteoporosis. Aprela is another drug in the stage of development.
The Chinese Osteoporosis drug market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 13.5% from 2010 to 2015. Increased prevalence of Osteoporosis among Chinese female population is the principal growth driver of the Osteoporosis drug market. The other key growth drivers for Chinese Osteoporosis market include increasing elderly aged population, rising living standards of the Chinese people and increasing awareness and bone health education.
To gain a competitive advantage, market players should develop cost-competitive drugs with easy dosage pattern, which promote bone building effectively. Large numbers of patients are unable to comply with the strict dosage schedule of traditional Osteoporosis drugs. Further research and development can address the unmet need by coming up with drugs that have a convenient dosage schedule with better efficacy and safety compared to traditional treatment of Osteoporosis.
