The global rheumatoid arthritis drugs market was valued at approximately USD 22.7 billion in 2018 and is expected to generate around USD 30.8 billion by 2026, at a CAGR of 4.8% between 2019 and 2026.

Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is an autoimmune disorder that leads to pain and inflammation of the joints. It usually affects the joints of wrists, elbows, hands, ankles, and knees. The presence of biologics and biosimilars, the rising prevalence of the disease, and established regulatory guidelines are likely to boost the rheumatoid arthritis drugs market growth globally. Generally, RA affects twice the number of women as compared to men. The rising disease remittance therapies awareness and increasing healthcare expenditure in developed countries are likely to further promote rheumatoid arthritis drugs market growth globally in the future.

Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is a chronic auto-immune disorder that majorly affects joints along with articular tissues and extraarticular organs. The disease is often progressive and results in pain, stiffness, and swelling of joints. Approximately 1% of the global population is affected by RA. It mostly onsets during middle ages, and women are affected 2.5 times as frequently as men. As there is no permanent cure for RA, the goals of the treatment are to reduce pain, decrease inflammation, prevent bone deformity, and improve a person’s overall function. This may be achieved through exercise and use of assistive devices, along with pain medication, steroids, and NSAIDs that are frequently used to help with the symptoms. To slow down the progression of disease, disease-modifying antirheumatic drugs (DMARDs) may be used. These drugs are the primary treatment for RA and have been found to improve symptoms, decrease joint damage, and improve overall functional abilities. However, early diagnosis and early treatment is the key for better management of the disease. Recent advancements with biosimilars which may be used to treat RA and increase in approvals of the same by regulatory affairs have opened new avenues for the RA drugs market.

The major factors that fuel the growth of the global rheumatoid arthritis drugs market include rise in incidence of rheumatoid arthritis and upsurge in geriatric population. In addition, transition from symptom management to slowing the progression of the disease further drives the market growth. However, side effects associated with the medication and higher cost of biologics & biosimilars restrain the growth of rheumatoid arthritis drug market. On the contrary, developments in the field of biosimilars and novel biologics are anticipated to offer profitable opportunities for the growth of the RA drugs market.
