The Global Multiple Myeloma Treatment Market value will expand from $7.3 billion in 2014 to $8.9 billion by 2021, representing a moderate Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 4.6

Multiple Myeloma (MM) is a hematological malignancy characterized by the proliferation of plasma cells in the bone marrow. It is the second-most frequently diagnosed hematological malignancy, with an annual prevalence in the US of about 45,000. The disease is considered incurable, although the past decade has seen significant improvements in therapy, driven by a greater understanding of pathophysiology. Many of the leading drugs in the market were approved over the past 10–15 years, and have improved median survival rates by about 50%.

The company's latest report* states that this increase, which will occur across the eight major markets of the US, UK, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, Japan and Canada, will be driven primarily by rising multiple myeloma prevalence as a result of an aging population.

Additionally, approvals during the forecast period for drugs that will supplement current market leaders, such as Revlimid, and offer improved therapeutic options, mainly in the relapsed/refractory setting, will also boost the market. Promising examples include ixazomib, ARRY-520 (filanesib), elotuzumab and daratumumab.

Although multiple myeloma remains incurable, greater understanding of its underlying cellular and molecular biology has driven novel therapy development, with clinical outcomes improving significantly as a result.

"While some late-stage pipeline drugs will have a low impact, others have demonstrated promising clinical results in specific patient populations, including elotuzumab and daratumumab. These products are therefore likely to provide physicians with increased choice and complexity in multiple myeloma treatment over the forecast period."

However, the analyst adds that various market barriers, such as a limited target patient population, will restrict any further growth in the multiple myeloma therapeutics arena by 2021.

Multiple myeloma's rarity and designation as an orphan disease limits the available treatment population, in turn hindering the potential revenues that can be generated from this indication. This, combined with high drug development costs, can deter manufacturers from investing in this area.

On the other hand, incentives for orphan disease drug development, along with the ability to reposition drugs from one indication to another, could help to counter these challenges and drive further research into multiple myeloma treatment.

The MM pipeline contains 267 products in active development, encompassing a range of molecule types and therapeutic targets. The innovation that has characterized the market over recent years is also clearly present in the current pipeline, with a strong presence of novel, targeted products.

Key Benefits of Report:

  • Understand the current clinical and commercial landscape through a comprehensive study of disease pathogenesis, diagnosis, prognosis, and the current treatment algorithm used in MM.
  • Assess the safety and efficacy of current treatment options, with extensive product profiles on prominent marketed therapies and a heatmap directly comparing safety and efficacy data.
  • Analyze the MM pipeline and stratify by stage of development, molecule type, and molecular target. The most promising late-stage therapies are profiled and assessed in terms of clinical performance and competitiveness, alongside a single-product forecast.
  • Predict growth in market size in eight major markets, with in-depth market forecasting from 2014–2021. The forecasts will provide an understanding of how epidemiology trends, new drug entry, and patent expirations will influence market value.
  • Identify commercial opportunities in the MM deals landscape by analyzing trends in licensing and co-development deals, and by profiling the most significant deals that have occurred in this indication in recent years.
