Myelofibrosis Treatment Market - Global Industry Insights, Trends, Outlook, and Opportunity Analysis, 2017–2025

Myelofibrosis is a bone marrow disease that interrupts the blood cells production process in the body. Fibrous or scar tissue gets developed in the bone marrow leading to scarring causing insufficient blood cell production. Myelofibrosis is a rare type of chronic leukemia affecting blood production. The symptoms of myelofibrosis include severe anemia, fatigue, weakness, and enlarged spleen. The disease is usually found to occur in individuals over the age of 50 years. Myelofibrosis is of two types namely, primary myelofibrosis and secondary myelofibrosis. The treatment options are scarce but the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved Jakafi (Ruxolitinib) in 2011, a drug developed by Novartis, which is the only approved product for the treatment of myelofibrosis that forms a major line of defense against the disease.

Increase in FDA approval of pipeline drugs is expected to drive the market

Growing prevalence of myelofibrosis in developing economies drives the demand for various treatment options for myelofibrosis. The market is expected to grow owing to heavy investments in research and development, appropriate reimbursement conditions, and a large pool of patients living with myelofibrosis. In addition, the market growth can be attributed to other factors including lifestyle up-gradation, unmet medical needs of the patients, increasing incidences of genetic disorders, and escalating smoking population. The market is expected to gain significant traction with the medical advancements focussing patients suffering from myelofibrosis. For instance, development of a molecule, CYT387 or Momelotinib, by Gilead Sciences for treating primary myelofibrosis and the innovation of current drug, ruxolitinib, by Incyte Corporation to develop a substitute dosing strategy in patients with myelofibrosis.

However, limited awareness of the novel therapies and high costs involved in treatment are the factors restricting the growth of the global myelofibrosis treatment market.
