A key factor driving the growth of the global autoimmune drugs market is the introduction of affordable biosimilars. Biosimilars have emerged as a replacement for biologics that are expensive and unaffordable for most patients. The lower price of biosimilars is attracting healthcare providers to offer reimbursement for them. Thus, the introduction of biosimilars has increased access to an advanced treatment option for patients with autoimmune disorders.

Global autoimmune drugs market: Market dominance by TNF-α inhibitors
The global autoimmune drugs market is dominated by TNF-α inhibitors that are very effective as they target specific receptors on the cell surface. HUMIRA, Enbrel, Cimzia, and SIMPONI are some of the widely sold TNF-α inhibitors. These inhibitors are routinely prescribed as the first line of treatment for the management of autoimmune disorders mainly psoriasis, rheumatoid arthritis, and multiple sclerosis.
Several efforts are being made to introduce a different class of drugs for autoimmune diseases. Some of the emerging drugs include the JAK kinase inhibitors that are targeting the JAK kinase protein, a mechanism distinct from those of TNF-α inhibitors.
“A major segment of the autoimmune drugs is occupied by the biologics most of which have faced or are on the verge of facing patent expiry across different economies in the world. These trends are welcoming biosimilar versions of these biologics into the market, many of which are already available in the market,” says a senior analyst at Technavio.
