REASONS FOR DOING THE STUDY
The objective of this study is to provide an in-depth analysis and forecast of the global autoimmune products market. The focus is on products and therapies currently used or under development for treatment of a variety of autoimmune diseases.
The global market for autoimmune therapeutics was estimated at more than $34 billion in 2010, with mid-single-digit growth through 2016. Different segments such as arthritis and psoriasis treatments are projected to grow at a faster rate than other treatments.
The report will analyze the global markets by region and by disease, and then provide growth projections for each region and/or disease.
STUDY GOALS AND OBJECTIVES
Autoimmune diseases arise from an overactive immune response by the body against substances and tissues normally present in the body. An autoimmune reaction can be triggered by a foreign substance entering the body; an alteration of normal body substances through a virus, drug, sunlight, or radiation; a malfunctioning of cells that control antibody production within the body; and genetic predisposition.
Autoimmune diseases afflict individuals with symptoms presented in the neurological, musculoskeletal, dermatological, and gastrointestinal areas of the body. Women are more likely to have autoimmune disorders than men, and research is ongoing to determine why these diseases target women of all ages.
This report is designed to investigate the autoimmune market by disease and by treatment, with supporting tables and figures to illustrate projected growth. The report will include the U.S., Europe, Japan, and other countries such as China and India.
