Primary Biliary Cholangitis Therapeutics Market Research, 2032

The global primary biliary cholangitis therapeutics market size was valued at $684 million in 2022, and is projected to reach $1.4 billion by 2032, growing at a CAGR of 7.1% from 2023 to 2032. Primary biliary cholangitis (PBC), formerly known as primary biliary cirrhosis, is a chronic autoimmune liver disease that primarily affects the small bile ducts within the liver. It is characterized by the progressive destruction of these bile ducts, leading to impaired bile flow and subsequent liver damage. The exact cause of PBC is still unknown. However, it is believed to result from a combination of genetic, environmental, and immune system factors. Certain genetic predispositions and environmental triggers, such as infections or exposure to toxic substances, may contribute to the development of the disease. The ursodeoxycholic acid, obeticholic acid are the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved drugs for the treatment of primary biliary cholangitis.

Market Dynamics

The growth of the primary biliary cholangitis therapeutics market share is driven by the rise in cases of primary biliary cholangitis in Asia-Pacific. For instance, according to the review article “Current understanding of primary biliary cholangitis”, published in January 2021, the point prevalence of PBC was 33.8 per 100,000 in the Japanese population. As per the Research Outreach article, in May 2020, over 37,000 people in Japan are estimated to have primary biliary cholangitis (PBC). Rise in the cases of primary biliary cholangitis has resulted in increased demand for primary biliary cholangitis therapeutics. 

Furthermore, the pharmaceutical industry continues to invest in research and development efforts to better understand the underlying mechanisms of PBC and develop innovative therapies. This includes exploring new drug targets, conducting clinical trials, and investigating combination therapies. Therefore, the rise in research and development regarding primary biliary cholangitis therapeutics drives the growth of the primary biliary cholangitis therapeutics market size during the forecast period. in June 2021, HighTide Therapeutics (“HighTide”), a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company focused on the development of innovative therapies for non-viral chronic liver diseases, gastrointestinal diseases, and metabolic disorders, announced that the first patient has been dosed in Phase 2 PRONTO-PBC study of HighTide evaluating first-in-class HTD1801 in adult patients with primary biliary cholangitis (PBC).

Moreover, PBC is a chronic condition that requires long-term management. Despite the availability of certain therapies, there is still an unmet need for more effective treatments, particularly for patients who do not respond adequately to existing therapies. This drives the demand for innovative and targeted therapeutics to address the unmet medical needs in PBC. Hence, such factors drive the growth of the primary biliary cholangitis therapeutics market share.

However, lack of awareness regarding primary biliary cholangitis (PBC), early diagnosis of PBC, and limited treatment options are expected to hinder the growth of primary biliary cholangitis therapeutics market. On the contrary, an increase in the adoption of key strategies such as acquisition, product approval, and agreement by key players and advancements in primary biliary cholangitis therapeutics are expected to open new avenues for the growth of the primary biliary cholangitis therapeutics industry across the world during the forecast period. 

The COVID-19 pandemic affected the primary biliary cholangitis therapeutics industry in a negative way, such as various healthcare industries were affected due to postponed of non-emergency services. The pandemic has disrupted research activities, including clinical trials, restrictions on patient recruitment and new product development. However, with relaxation in lockdowns and decline in COVID-19 cases, companies have re-started their processes to meet the demand for primary biliary cholangitis therapeutics. In addition, rise in product approvals, and increase in research and development of advanced medicine of primary biliary cholangitis therapeutics drive the growth of primary biliary cholangitis therapeutics market.

In addition, rise in awareness in pharmaceutical companies, and governments regarding supply chain hinderance of pharmaceutical products drives the growth of primary biliary cholangitis therapeutics market. For instance, government agencies in the U.S. and around the globe learned some tough lessons about the pharmaceutical supply chain after the COVID-19 pandemic landed, causing problems and highlighting weaknesses in key areas. In the session of "U.S. Government Investments in Pharmaceutical Manufacturing and Supply Chain and Future Pandemics for today" at the 2022 BIO International Conference, representatives from the U.S. health agencies shared lessons learned from COVID-19, and how government and industry have collaborated to avoid future supply chain crises. Moreover, the U.S. leaders stated that the government has learned since the beginning of the pandemic, steps taken since arrival of COVID-19, and plans the U.S. has put in place to avoid problems in the future. Thus, such trends are expected to bring stabilization in the market, and subsequently witness pre-pandemic growth rate during the forecast period.
