Research and Markets: A Myelodysplastic Syndrome Therapeutics Pipeline Assessment Report - The MDS Therapeutics Market is Forecast to Show Moderate Growth until 2017

DUBLIN--()--Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of GlobalData's new report "Myelodysplastic Syndrome Therapeutics - Pipeline Assessment and Market Forecasts to 2017" to their offering.

GlobalData, the industry analysis specialist, has released its new report, Myelodysplastic Syndrome Therapeutics - Pipeline Assessment and Market Forecasts to 2017. The report is an essential source of information and analysis on the global myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS) therapeutic market. This report is built using data and information sourced from proprietary databases, primary and secondary research and in-house analysis by GlobalData's team of industry experts.

The Myelodysplastic Syndrome Therapeutics Market is Forecast to Show Moderate Growth until 2017

GlobalData estimates that the global myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS) market was valued at $652.6m in 2010 and forecasts it to grow at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 12.2% to reach $1.5 billion by 2017. This growth forecast is primarily attributed to the currently approved drugs reaching their peak sales during the forecast period and secondarily due to a strong pipeline. The existing market is strong although with high unmet need. The market is represented by three approved drugs Vidaza (azacitidine), Dacogen (decitabine) and Revlimid (lenalidomide). Unmet Need Continues to Challenge the Pipeline Drugs

GlobalData has found that the myelodysplastic syndrome market has high unmet needs, which implies that the market is not well served by the current products in terms of efficacy and safety, and that there is high potential for new entrants. MDS therapies are largely chemotherapeutic agents that are given intravenously. Revlimid is taken as oral tablets. Thus ease of administration also adds to the unmet need present in the market. In summary, the MDS market is expected to be a relatively open market for new entrants until 2017 with many opportunities for value capture.
