GlobalData’s report, “Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension (PAH) – Pipeline Assessment and Market Forecasts to 2016” provides an essential source of information and analysis on the global PAH market. The report identifies the key trends shaping and driving the global PAH market. The report also provides insight on the 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 PAH sector.

This report is built using data and information sourced from proprietary databases, primary and secondary research and in-house analysis by GlobalData’s team of industry experts.

GlobalData valued the global Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension (PAH) market to be worth $2,653m in 2009. According to the Venice 2003 revised classification system, PAH is categorized as World Health Organization (WHO) Group I – PAH. Prior to 2001, no drug was approved for the treatment of PAH. Only supportive care medication such as anticoagulants, diuretics, oxygen, digoxin and calcium channel blockers was given to the patients. In 2001, the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved Tracleer as the treatment for patients with PAH. This drug is a registered trademark of Actelion Ltd. The sales of Tracleer grew rapidly due to a high patient switch over from off-label drugs to Tracleer. The drug has a better efficacy profile compared to the previously used off-label drugs.

The FDA also approved three more drugs, Remodulin, Ventavis, and Revatio in 2002, 2004 and 2005 respectively for the treatment of PAH. However, these three drugs accounted for only a 24% market share to PAH market in 2005. Between 2005 and 2009, the PAH market grew at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 39.2% and recorded revenues of $2,653m in 2009. According to GlobalData analysis, the PAH market is forecast to grow at a CAGR of 5% annually over the next six years to reach $3,569m by 2015. Tracleer, the major revenue generating drug of the PAH market is expected to go off patent by 2015. The patent expiry of this drug will be a major barrier for the market growth. Until this time, the growth of the PAH market is primarily attributed to increased competition among existing products, the release of new and enhanced treatment options, and the development of safer and more efficacious therapies. In 2009, Actelion Ltd, with its key drug Tracleer, was the leading player in the global PAH market.
