OpportunityAnalyzer: Cystic Fibrosis Opportunity Analysis and Forecasts to 2025


Cystic fibrosis CF is an autosomal recessive disease caused by mutations in the cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator CFTR gene, which codes for the CFTR protein. As a multisystem condition, CF patients show great heterogeneity in presenting clinical symptoms. CF mainly affects the respiratory and gastrointestinal tracts. Three classes of drugs have been used to for treatment in CF patients: inhaled antibiotics for bacterial and fungal respiratory infections, mucolytic drugs for mucociliary clearance of the airways, and pancreatic enzyme replacement therapies PERTs for treatment of CF induced exocrine pancreatic insufficiency EPI. During the last five years, a new class of drugs was launched into the market, specifically treating the underlying cause of CF. These CFTR modulators help restore function of the insufficient CFTR protein. GlobalData projects the global cystic fibrosis marketplace to experience tremendous growth during the forecast period. This growth will be driven primarily by the highly anticipated arrival of the CFTR modulator, Vertex Pharmaceuticals' ivacaftor/tezacaftor. Insmed's inhaled antibiotic Arikace liposomal amikacin is also expected to launch during the forecast period but is not expected to drive CF market growth as much as the CFTR modulator, since it will be competing with other inhaled antibiotics.

Key Questions Answered

Inhaled antibiotics, mucolytic drugs, and PERTs have been the cornerstone of CF treatment. The introduction of CFTR modulators have contributed to better treatment of CF patients; nevertheless, the overall life expectancy in CF patients is still 2025 years less than in the healthy population. Therefore, there are considerably high unmet needs within the indication. What are the main unmet needs in this market? Will the drugs under development fulfil the unmet needs of the CF market?
The current latestage CF pipeline encompasses one CFTR modulating combination therapy and an inhaled antibiotic. Will the latestage drugs make a significant impact on the CF market? Which of these drugs will have the highest peak sales at the highest CAGR, and why?
CFTR modulators treat the cause of the CF disease. How will the entrance of CFTR modulators into the CF therapy market affect the other classes of drugs?
