GlobalData, the industry analysis specialist, has released a new report, “Hepatitis C (HCV) – Pipeline Assessment and Market Forecasts to 2016”. The report is an essential source of information and analysis on the global HCV market. The report identifies the key trends shaping and driving the global HCV market. The report also provides insight into the prevalent competitive landscape and the emerging players expected to cause significant shifts in the positioning of the existing market leaders. Most importantly, the report provides valuable insight into the pipeline products within the global hepatitis C sector. GlobalData’s analysis suggests that the global HCV market was worth $4.4 billion in 2009. It is forecast to grow at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 9.8% for the next seven years to reach $8.5 billion by 2016. The high projected growth rate is primarily attributable to a strong pipeline. The increase in the prevalence of the disease and the availability of new first-in-class therapies with better safety and efficacy profiles are expected to drive the growth of the HCV market.
