Nonalcoholic Steatohepatitis – Drug Pipeline Analysis and Market Forecasts to 2016


GlobalData’s report, “Nonalcoholic Steatohepatitis (NASH)– Drug Pipeline Analysis and Market Forecasts to 2016” is an essential source of information and analysis on the global nonalcoholic steatohepatitis market. The report identifies the key trends shaping and driving the global nonalcoholic steatohepatitis market. The report also provides insight on the prevalent competitive landscape and the emerging players expected to bring significant shift in the market positioning of the existing market leaders. Most importantly, the report provides valuable insight on the pipeline products within the global nonalcoholic steatohepatitis sector. GlobalData estimated that the Nonalcoholic Steatohepatitis (NASH) market was worth $1.8 billion in 2009. The major reason for the limited market revenues is that there is no approved drug for the treatment of NASH. NASH is an unrecognized cause of cryptogenic cirrhosis with emerging importance. It is a more aggressive form of NAFLD (Nonalcoholic Fatty Liver Disease), which often progresses to liver cirrhosis. The increased prevalence of diabetes, obesity and hyperlipidemia are considered to be important causes of NASH. Antioxidants, anti-diabetic medications, anti-obesity medications and antihyperlipidemics are some of the off-label products currently used by NASH patients. The modest growth forecast is primarily attributed to a weak pipeline landscape. Due to the fact that low diagnosis rates, low prescription rates and low treatment seeking rates continue to pose significant challenges for prospective market entrants, the market landscape in future is expected to remain static without any significant dynamism.
