Japanese Pharmaceutical Market: Sector Insights

Oct 20 2017 Comments 0

One of the latest market intelligence forecasts for the Japanese Pharmaceutical market from life science commercial intelligence firm Evaluate highlights both negative and positive components affecting future performance, predicting a growth rate of 3.3% (CAGR) between 2017 -2022, significantly lower than Worldwide outlook (6.5% CAGR).

According to the industry analyst the enforcement of a much more stringent pricing revision policy in Japan, both for new products as well as off-patent brands, is behind the decline of the products currently on the market which are forecast to drop about 2% annually in sales through 2022.

The prices of Gilead’s hepatitis C virus (HCV) blockbusters Sovaldi and Harvoni have been subject to significant price scrutiny and most recently the Japanese government has forced a price reduction of 50% on Opdivo, BMS’ novel PD-1/PD-L1 agent.

However, the sales decline of marketed products is counterbalanced by the optimism surrounding new therapies coming to market expected to account for 34% of sales in 2022, among the top ranking are Dupixent (Sanofi), Ibrance (Pfizer), Entresto (Novartis), Aducanumab (Biogen), and Emicizumab (Chugai).
