Increasing Prevalence of Allergic Rhinitis

Growing industrialization and urbanization have led to higher concentrations of outdoor allergens like pollen, mold, dust, and animal dander in the air. At the same time, people are spending more time indoors where indoor allergens from furnishings, cleaning products, and other materials are present. This has increased individual's exposure and susceptibility to develop allergic rhinitis. Thus, the increasing prevalence of allergic rhinitis boosts the demand for effective treatment which is expected to drive the market growth over the forecast period. For instance, according to the World Allergy Organization report in October 2020, over 400 million people suffer from allergic rhinitis around the world, which to a large extent remains underdiagnosed and undertreated. In the U.S., it affects between 10-30% of the adult general population and up to 40% of children, making it the fifth most common chronic disease.

Insights, By Treatment Type: Targeted Approach of Immunotherapy

The treatment type segment includes immunotherapy, anti-histamines, decongestants, leukotriene receptor antagonists, corticosteroids, and others. The immunotherapy sub-segment is estimated to hold 30.7% of the market share in 2024 owing to its targeted approach in addressing the root cause of allergic rhinitis. Immunotherapy, also known as desensitization or hypo-sensitization, counteracts the allergic reaction that an individual suffers due to allergens such as pollen, dust mites, and animal dander. Unlike symptomatic treatments like antihistamines that only offer relief from the symptoms, immunotherapy aims to reduce sensitivity to allergens over time and provide long lasting relief. It works by exposing the patient to gradually increasing doses of the allergen(s) that cause their symptoms, in order to induce tolerance. This 'tolerance induction' affords the individual protection against future reactions upon re-exposure to these allergens. As a consequence, patients may find long term reduction or elimination of symptoms on immunotherapy. Its targeted mechanism catering to the cause rather than the symptoms alone has made it the treatment of choice for individuals seeking a long-term solution to their allergic rhinitis.

Insights, By Route of Administration: Various Benefits of Oral Administration Over Other Modes

The route of administration segment includes oral, nasal, intraocular, and others. The oral sub-segment is estimated to hold 44.1% of the market share in 2024 due to the various benefits of oral administration over other modes. Oral medication is the most convenient route for self-administration as tablets or capsules can be taken without needing assistance. This makes adherence to treatment simpler. Additionally, oral drugs typically have higher bioavailability compared to other modes meaning higher amounts of the drug reach the target sites in the body resulting in better efficacy. The avoidance of repeated invasions of the nasal or other mucosa seen with other administration modes also adds to patient comfort with oral drugs. Furthermore, oral drugs usually have lower production and distribution costs compared to other complex drug delivery systems. Together, the convenience, effectiveness, and lower costs associated with the oral route have cemented its status as the preferred administration method for allergic rhinitis treatment.

Insights, By Distribution Channel: Hospital pharmacies control higher market share due to the specialized services offered

The distribution channel segment includes hospital pharmacies, retail pharmacies, and e-commerce. The hospital pharmacies sub-segment is estimated to hold 57.8% of the market share in 2024 owing to the specialized services they provide. As healthcare experts, hospital pharmacists are well-versed in allergy management and able to offer specialized guidance to patients. They ensure each patient receives tailor-made treatment best suited to their condition and lifestyle. Patients regularly visiting hospitals also benefit from continuity of care as all their treatment needs can be addressed under one roof. Hospital pharmacies also stock a wider range of medications including specialty drugs for complex cases. This enables more comprehensive management of allergic rhinitis. The oversight of hospital staff further helps address any drug-related issues timeously. The specialized know-how and integrated services preferentially drive customers to hospital pharmacies over other channels for their allergic rhinitis treatment needs.
