Asthma Treatment Drugs Receive Fillip during COVID-19, Future Expansion Banking on Rising Generic Drug Candidates Popularity: Fact.MR

Generic drug candidates are being preferred over branded ones to deepen market penetration across key regions.

Fact.MR, Dublin: The global asthma treatment market is likely to embark on a positive growth trajectory, attributed to burgeoning investment volumes in developing long-term and quick-relief medications, according to award winning market research company Fact.MR. Additionally, extensive research and development to foster advanced care is likely to anchor the market forward.

The COVID-19 pandemic has also served to fuel expansion prospects, as highly vulnerable patients require constant medicinal doses to prevent any further complications of the respiratory tract. This has generated in a spurt in fast-track regulatory approvals of various drug candidates in recent months. For instance, Indian pharmaceutical giant Lupin filed and acquired US FDA approval for its albuterol aerosol in April 2020, promising to yield nearly US$ 3 billion in revenue.

Likewise, Cipla completed its Stage III trial for its Advair generic drug candidate, receiving the abbreviated new drug application (ANDA) approval by August 2020. Such new drug candidate developments have greatly helped enhance growth prospects in the previous years, with projected estimated to remain strong for the current as well as the next ten years.

“As new therapeutic approaches continue to be investigated, drug developers and key pharmaceutical ingredients manufacturers are experimenting with a plethora of drug formulations and combinations, attracting heightened investments,” remarks the Fact.MR analyst.
