Topical steroids and development of new drugs fuel the atopic dermatitis drug market

Atopic dermatitis treatment majorly relies on topical steroids and hence the segment holds the largest market share. A lukewarm bath followed by the application of moisturizer helps in the treatment of atopic dermatitis. Immunomodulators and pimecrolimus are also used for the treatment of atopic dermatitis. According to the American Academy of Dermatology, in 2016, there were around 28 million people of all age groups affected by atopic dermatitis in the U.S. The expected launch of dupilumab, monoclonal antibody developed by Sanofi and Regeneron Pharmaceuticals Inc. in 2017, which is approved by FDA for the treatment of atopic dermatitis plays a major role in the treatment of the disease and supports the growth of atopic dermatitis drug market. In December 2016, the crisaborole ointment was approved by FDA for the treatment of mild atopic dermatitis. When such drugs are launched, FDA issues black box warning on the label of prescribed drug to warn users about the side effects. It is expected that new product launches in near future will significantly boost the atopic dermatitis drug market. This market offers opportunities to the companies involved in the development of novel drugs and therapies as there is an extensive need for developed medications with high safety and efficiency. Major challenges faced by atopic dermatitis drug market are side effects, high cost of treatment, and lack of good & safe therapeutics, which hinder the market growth.
