Autoimmune diseases

Delivering global market research insights in the autoimmune therapy area

The auto-immune market is expected to undergo significant changes in the next few years as newer entrants with novel modes of action compete with established brands, and biosimilars become increasingly accepted for use as cheaper alternatives to the branded biologics. Increased prevalence and public awareness of auto-immune diseases is fuelling global growth.

AI is of interest to healthcare providers because of the size of the market, cost of treatment and chronic nature of many of the diseases. The NIH estimates up to 23.5 million Americans have an auto-immune disease, more than heart disease (which affects 22 million) and cancer (which affects up to 9 million people).

We have considerable experience of conducting custom market research programmes across auto-immune in rheumatoid arthritis, inflammatory bowel disease, psoriasis, psoriatic arthritis and ankylosing spondylitis amongst others.

We can help you with:

  • Opportunity and demand assessment

  • Understanding the global and local market opportunity

  • The patient journey and unmet needs

  • Segmenting the market

  • Product and portfolio development

  • Brand positioning, launch and beyond
