London, United Kingdom (PressExposure) April 28, 2011 -- GlobalData estimates that the global osteoarthritis (OA) pain therapeutics market was valued at $4.9 billion in 2010, and is forecast to grow at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 3.3% over the next seven years, to reach $6.1 billion by 2017. This slow growth is primarily attributed to low levels of treatment-seeking behavior, disease awareness and the usage of generic drugs. The current competitive landscape consists of branded, generic and off-label drugs.
Abbott Laboratories, Adolor Corporation, Cephalon, Inc., Endo Pharmaceuticals, Elite Pharmaceuticals, Glenmark Pharmaceuticals, Grunenthal GMBH, Johnson & Johnson Pharmaceuticals Ltd., Pfizer, Inc., SantaSolve AS, and Sanofi-aventis are going to be the key players in the OA pain market. GlobalData has profiles of all these companies as they hold important pipeline drugs in late stage development for OA Pain treatment.
The existing market landscape remains competitive, because the treatment of OA Pain relies on established, older therapies like non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDS), opioids, and Cyclooxygenase-II (COX-II) inhibitors. The market scenario is expected to change after the launch of new disease modifying therapies such as TRPV1, 3 antagonists, aggrecanase inhibitors, GABA B receptor modulators, inducible nitric oxide synthase (iNOS) inhibitor, platelet secreted growth factors, and Anti NGF mAB.

GlobalData analysis shows that the OA Pain therapeutics development pipeline is strong, with 49 molecules in various phases of clinical development, including 29 first-in-class molecules. These first-inclass molecules are mostly in the early stages of clinical development, so their impact on the market will be at a later stage. As a result, the pipeline for the OA Pain therapeutics market is expected to have a bigger impact on the market in the later stages of the forecast period, thus providing a wide scope of growth in the future.
GlobalData's research indicates that the OA Pain therapeutics pipeline is strong, with a number of molecules in various phases of clinical development. The first-in-class molecules seem to have distinct advantages over the current products in terms of better disease management. Although the unmet need of the OA Pain therapeutics market is low and the treatment relies on older therapies and drugs, the market needs novel therapies offering better results in terms of safety and efficacy.
