Ulcerative Colitis Market Analysis
The ulcerative colitis market size is expected to grow from USD 7.49 billion in 2023 to USD 9.00 billion by 2028, registering a CAGR of 3.75% during the forecast period.
COVID-19 severely impacted various treatment markets, including the ulcerative colitis market, due to an increased preference for COVID-19 treatment, supply chain alterations, and increased research studies on COVID-19 products compared with other treatment products. However, due to the decreased COVID-19 effect on the public, the market players focused on various disease treatments, including ulcerative colitis treatment products. For instance, as per AbbVie Inc's 2022 annual report, the net revenue of Rinvoq (upadacitinib) increased 58% in 2022, which was favorably impacted by recent regulatory approvals and expansion of Rinvoq for the treatment of ulcerative colitis and other treatments. This shows the new approval of ulcerative colitis treatments after the COVID-19 pandemic, which is expected to significantly impact the market over the coming years.
Factors such as the growing burden of ulcerative colitis, increasing patient assistance programs, technological advancements, and research drive the market's growth.
The demand for market products is anticipated to rise due to the growing advances in treating ulcerative colitis. For instance, as per the study report published by Frontiers in Pharmacology in September 2022, the research studies on fecal microbiota transplantation, anti-integrin antibodies, Janus kinase inhibitors, and anti-tumor necrosis factor drugs for ulcerative colitis continued to grow over the coming years which likely increased the demand for more advanced treatment products and drives the market growth over the forecast period.
In addition, the increasing involvement of key players in product development related to the field is anticipated to drive the market's growth. For instance, in May 2023, Janssen Global Services, LLC released new safety and efficacy data from a Phase III trial investigating Tremyfa (guselkumab) in adults with moderately to severely active ulcerative colitis (UC). This large focus of market players on developing new drugs for treatment is expected to boost the market's growth in the future. Additionally, the approval of the drugs is also propelling the market's growth. For instance, in November 2021, Bristol Myers Squibb received marketing authorization from the European Commission for Zeposia (ozanimod) for the treatment of adults with moderately to severely active ulcerative colitis (UC) who have had an inadequate response, lost response, or are intolerant to either conventional therapy or a biologic agent. Thus, the factors above are expected to boost the market's growth over the forecast period.
However, factors such as high levels of unmet clinical need in ulcerative colitis (UC) and the side effects of medications are expected to impede market growth over the forecast period.
Ulcerative Colitis Market Trends
Immunosuppressants Under the Drug Type Segment is Expected to Have the Largest Growth Over the Forecast Period
Immunomodulators, often called immunosuppressants, are a type of medication used in ulcerative colitis to weaken or modulate the activity of the immune system. The research studies for new immunosuppressants for ulcerative colitis, a type of inflammatory bowel disease, along with the increased focus of key market players in developing these drugs, are expected to have the largest segment growth in the market over the forecast period.
According to the study report published by the Springer Drugs journal in March 2023, novel JAK inhibitors, one of the immunomodulating agents with a more focused effect on JAK-1, have shown promise in the treatment of ulcerative colitis, potentially providing a safer and more successful therapeutic option for patients, particularly those who have previously not responded to traditional treatment options. These advanced agents increase the demand for immunosuppressants with their effectiveness in treating ulcerative colitis, which likely propels the segment's growth over the study period.
Immunosuppressants, such as tacrolimus and azathioprine, are commonly used for ulcerative colitis. As per the study report published by Cureus in May 2022, azathioprine was an effective and affordable medication for ulcerative colitis patients who desired to maintain remission for an extended period. Due to this cost-effective treatment option, the market is expected to grow most over the forecast period.
North America is Expected to Hold a Significant Share in the Market Over the Forecast Period
North America is expected to lead the ulcerative colitis market, owing to the presence of key players and the increasing prevalence of ulcerative colitis in the region, along with the continuing funding for developing innovative solutions for treating ulcerative colitis.
The high focus on research activities by the market players is also contributing to the market's growth. For instance, in August 2022, Teva Pharmaceutical Industries initiated a phase II clinical trial to assess the efficacy and safety of TEV-48574 for Ulcerative Colitis. Thus, the new research studies help increase companies' product portfolio, which is expected to drive market growth over the forecast period in the region.
Additionally, approvals from regulatory authorities such as the United States Food and Drug Administration, Health Canada, and others are also propelling the market's growth. For instance, in May 2021, Bristol Myers Squibb received approval from the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for Zeposia (ozanimod) in the treatment of adults with moderately to severely active ulcerative colitis (UC), a chronic inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). Thus, owing to the abovementioned factors, it is expected to have increased demand for various ulcerative colitis treatment products in the region, which will likely propel the market growth over the forecast period.
