Advancing Understanding of Immunotherapy's Mechanisms and Benefits

Basic and clinical research over the past decade has significantly expanded knowledge of how allergen immunotherapy works at the molecular level to provide long-lasting relief. Its complex effects on immune cells, cytokines and antibodies responsible for modifying the body's response to allergens are now increasingly well characterized. This growing scientific evidence base is enabling refinement and targeting of immunotherapy protocols. It is also translating to demonstrable real-world advantages over existing symptomatic therapies which treat only a fraction of patients successfully. Studies following thousands of patients for many years now prove immunotherapy can prevent new sensitizations from developing in addition to treating existing ones. Multiple long-term outcome studies also confirm that its benefits endure for 3-5 years after discontinuation of treatment. This disease-modifying impact sets it apart and raises expectations of altering the natural history of allergy in susceptible individuals

Key Takeaways from Analyst

Global allergy immunotherapy market growth is driven by rising prevalence of allergic diseases worldwide. Allergies have become increasingly common, owing to various environmental factors like pollution and changing lifestyle habits. This growing patient pool suffering from conditions like allergic rhinitis, asthma, and atopic dermatitis can boost demand for immunotherapy treatments over the forecast period.

North America dominates the market owing to high awareness levels and established healthcare infrastructure in the region. However, Asia Pacific is expected to witness the fastest growth rate in the near future due to growing healthcare expenditure and massive patient population suffering from allergies in the emerging countries of China and India.

Stringent regulations associated with product approval can hamper the market growth. High costs involved in clinical trials and regulatory approvals negatively impact shorter-term profit margins. However, longer regulatory exclusivity periods grant extended periods of revenue generation post-approval.

Market Challenges: High Costs Associated with Therapy

The high costs associated with allergy immunotherapy can hamper the global allergy immunotherapy market growth. Immunotherapy requires long-term commitment from patients as it involves years of regularly scheduled visits to the doctor's office for getting injections or pills. This prolonged treatment duration drastically increases the overall therapy costs. Moreover, each allergy immunotherapy prescription is custom-made for each individual patient based on their specific allergens. This customized production in a low volume adds to the per patient therapy costs.

Market Opportunities: Increasing Research and Development Activities by Key Market Players

Increasing research and development activities by market players is expected to offer lucrative growth opportunities over the forecast period. For instance, in August 2023, Inimmune Corporation (“Inimmune”), a clinical-stage company focused on the development of innovative immunotherapeutics, announced that the first subject has been dosed in Inimmune’s phase 1/1b First-in-Human clinical trial of INI-2004, Inimmune’s TLR4 agonist product candidate under development as a potential treatment of allergic rhinitis. The phase 1/1b trial is a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, dose-escalating study to evaluate the safety, tolerability, pharmacokinetics, and pharmacodynamics of INI-2004 in healthy volunteers and participants with allergic rhinitis (AR).

Allergy Immunotherapy Market By Treatment Type

Insights, By Treatment Type: Endurance and simplicity drives SCIT's segment growth

Treatment Type segment is sub-segmented into subcutaneous immunotherapy (SCIT) and sublingual immunotherapy (SLIT). Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) sub-segment is estimated to hold 52.8% of the market share in 2024, owing to its enduring efficacy and simplicity. SCIT involves administering graded doses of allergen extract under the skin, building tolerance slowly over time. This gradual, prolonged exposure allows the body to develop a tolerance and reduces the risk of severe allergic reactions that can occur with other treatments. Long-term studies show patients often experience symptom relief and reduce their medication usage for 3-5 years after completion of treatment. Its predictable response provides reassurance to both physicians and patients. Despite requiring weekly visits initially, compliance tends to be high because results materialize gradually over months of therapy versus sudden effects that could raise safety concerns. The straightforward delivery method of SCIT provides it an advantage. Administered in a doctor's office, it presents minimal burden on patients compared to daily at-home therapies. This simplicity boosts adherence and helps maximize treatment impact. It also allows for close monitoring by trained staff to promptly address any adverse reactions. Due to these risk-management advantages, SCIT remains the standard of care recommended in clinical practice guidelines for most common allergies like dust mites and pollen.

Insights, By Allergy Type: Demand for Effective Asthma Treatment Boosts Segment

Allergy Type segment is sub-segmented into allergic rhinitis, allergic asthma, food allergy, venom allergy, others. The allergic asthma sub-segment is estimated to hold 36.1% of the market share in 2024, owing to the rising prevalence of asthma globally. According to recent estimates by health organizations, over 300 million people suffer from asthma worldwide. The condition is characterized by inflammation of the airways and difficulty in breathing. Conventional treatment of acute asthma involves the use of short-acting beta-agonists to relax bronchial muscles. However, long-term control medications such as inhaled corticosteroids and leukotriene modifiers are essential to prevent recurrent symptoms. The asthma segment is driven by the need for more effective medicines that can better manage symptoms over prolonged use. Several drug makers are investing in research to develop novel biologic drugs targeting specific inflammatory pathways involved in asthma pathophysiology. Monoclonal antibody therapies that block immune system proteins like IgE and IL-5 have shown promising results in clinical trials. Such targeted drugs offer superior efficacy with less risk of side effects compared to existing options. Their approval and commercialization in major markets will provide a significant boost to the asthma segment in the coming years.

Insights, By Distribution Channel: Access and Awareness incline hospitals' lead in allergy immunotherapy distribution

Distribution Channel segment is sub-segmented into hospital pharmacies, retail pharmacies, online pharmacies. The hospital pharmacies sub-segment is estimated to hold 51.2% of the market share in 2024, due to their accessibility and promotion of services. As the traditional source for allergy treatments, hospitals provide convenient access for individuals seeking immunotherapy evaluation and ongoing treatment. Being located in most major medical areas, hospitals present minimal transportation hurdles for patients. Their extensive specialty clinics and on-site pharmacies allow for streamlined evaluations, prescriptions and dispensing within one facility. Patients appreciate the integrated 'one-stop-shop' for their care. Major hospitals also spearhead advancement in immunotherapy through dedicated research departments. Their position at the forefront of new protocol developments and clinical trials increases patients' confidence in outcomes. This reputation cements hospitals' leadership role and widens their reach, sustaining their position as the primary channel supplying allergy immunotherapy.
