Demand for Precise Clinical Testing to Boost Usage of Erythropoietin Drugs

The global erythropoietin drugs market has been garnering a good momentum in the past few years as the diagnostic rate of chronic conditions has been on a consistent rise. For instance, in European Union cancer has been growing significantly, and according to research article European cancer mortality predictions for the year 2017, published in US National Library of Medicine, around 13, 73,500 cancer deaths predicted in 2017. Further, strong pipeline of erythropoietin drugs, of which cancers account for a major share, is expected to aid to the market growth of the segment in the near future. Meanwhile, the rising rate of renal diseases such as chronic kidney disease is expected to contribute to the overall revenue. The prominent genetic mutation rates which is the primary cause of renal disease are anticipated to propel the market growth of the segment.  

Additionally, it is difficult to manufacture biosimilars or generic versions of biologic erythropoietin drugs as compared to biosimilar drugs. Furthermore, unique design of erythropoietin drugs which enables precise clinical testing and offers better outcomes in clinical trials. Additionally, fewer side effects of these drugs makes them a preferred choice of treatment. The demand for erythropoietin drugs for treating anemia is also expected to be a profiting trend for the vendors in the global market.
