Inflammation is a nonspecific immune defense mechanism of the body triggered due to injuries, bacterial or viral infections or any damage to the internal or external organs. When this inflammation persists for longer duration it can lead to chronic diseases such as atherosclerosis and rheumatoid arthritis, to name few. Currently, reduction of inflammation particularly in chronic diseases is the widely accepted therapeutic approach adopted by physicians.
Rising incidences of autoimmune and respiratory diseases, increasing R&D investments in China and India and large amount of biosimilar drugs in the development pipeline would drive the growth of the Asia-Pacific anti-inflammatory therapeutics market. Furthermore, factors such as existence of established markets for NSAIDs and corticosteroids, large adoption of OTC (over the counter) NSAIDs, such as ibuprofen and naproxen, in China and India and government initiatives in the Asia-Pacific region would further boost the market growth. However, the adverse effects associated with prolonged consumption of drugs such as NSAIDs and corticosteroids and issues of uncertain patent legislations, such as compulsory licensing in India, would limit the market growth. High price sensitivity in countries such as India and China would be the key challenge for drug innovators to launch their patented drugs in the market.
The anti-inflammatory biologics segment dominated the market in 2014 and is expected to display the highest growth rate over the forecast period. This is due to the unmatched benefits offered by biological drugs and rapid adoption in countries like Japan along with improving healthcare access and increasing healthcare expenditures. Popularity of corticosteroids has been decreasing due to the issues of withdrawal symptoms and toxicity.

Japan is the leading market for patented as well as biologic drugs. However, government in Japan is now focusing on establishment of effective generic drugs. On the other hand, China is projected to emerge as the new market leader in the Asia-Pacific anti-inflammatory therapeutics market by 2020 due to rapidly developing economy, growing healthcare expenditure and huge patient base. In India, the launch of biosimilars and constantly improving per capita healthcare spending would be the key factors facilitating the growth of anti-inflammatory therapeutics market.
