Orphan Drugs Market Expected to Grow at CAGR of 10.05% -- Key Vendors Are Bristol-Mayer Squibb, Celgene, F.Hoffmann La Roche, Novartis & Pfizer

DUBLIN, IRELAND--(Marketwired - February 17, 2016) - Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "Orphan Drugs Market 2015-2019" report to their offering.

The global orphan drugs market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 10.05% over the period 2015-2019.

The market is expected to witness certain emerging trends. Among these is an increased focus on biologics. Biologics are expected to be a preferred treatment option for the medical fraternity, patients, and the families of patients. This in turn will raise the number of treatment-seeking patients, which results in an increase in the overall consumption of medicines.

According to the report, another key driver is the shorter development timelines. The clinical trials for orphan indication enrol fewer patients in the studies, which leads to a shorter and faster development process.

Further, the report states that one of the challenges in conducting clinical trials in rare diseases is the smaller number of patients available for clinical studies. Enrolling enough patients in clinical studies to generate significant comparative data is therefore a major challenge.
