iGATE Research has released a report on Worldwide - Hepatitis C Drugs Market and Pipeline Drugs Analysis to 2019
Hepatitis C (hep C) is a viral disease caused by the Hepatitis C virus (HCV) and transmitted by blood, primarily in health care settings. It can progressively damage the liver, and, if left untreated, cause liver cirrhosis, liver cancer, and death. Hep C is the leading cause of liver cancer and liver transplants. In addition, the virus is associated with a variety of conditions beyond liver disease, including diabetes and depression. In July 2013, the World Health Organization (WHO) estimated that over 150 Million people are chronically infected worldwide. The annual number of deaths due to HCV is estimated at 350,000 globally, or nearly 1,000 per day. The HCV pandemic is concentrated in middle-income countries (MICs); while 15% of the 150 million people with chronic HCV live in High income countries (HICs), 73% live in middle-income countries (MICs) and 12% in low-income countries (LICs).
The hepatitis C market is rapidly evolving as new launches prompt a significant paradigm shift in the treatment of the disease. In 2011, a breakthrough in HCV therapy was witnessed with the first two direct acting anti-HCV drugs (Incivek and Victrelis) came to market and were followed by the market approval of two additional anti-HCV drugs (Sovaldi and Olysio) in 2013. These new drugs have significantly improved HCV cure rates. Hepatitis C virus drug market is expected to nearly quadruple of its current figure by 2014. The world market for HCV drugs represents an area of potential opportunities in developed as well as developing countries. Because of the technological advancements and effectiveness, many big market players are focusing on development of innovative drugs for HCV. Major companies are forming coalitions and agreements to develop effective treatment on Hepatitis C virus. The Hepatitis C (HCV) market is entering a new stage due to the emergence of treatment innovations. The HCV market is expected to have the best growth opportunities over the coming decade.
