Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension (PAH) is a rare, fatal cardiopulmonary disease with an annual mortality rate of 15%. The disease is a subset (Group 1) within the World Health Organization's classification of the different types of pulmonary hypertension. PAH is characterized by an abnormal rise in the resting mean pulmonary arterial pressure caused by pulmonary arterial obstruction due to endothelial dysfunction and vascular remodeling, and leads to increased resistance in the arterial blood vessels. Since PAH is a progressive disorder, the pulmonary pressure keeps building up as the patient advances through the later stages of the disease, leading to reduced cardiac output, right heart failure, and ultimately, death.

The PAH market has generated much interest and investment from drug developers over the past several years, despite PAH being a rare disease. Current treatment strategies are symptomatic, and there is an unmet need of an absence of disease-modifying therapies. Development of disease-modifying therapies is a key opportunity for drug developers, and will be a major driver the PAH market over the forecast period.

Key Highlights

  • Strong growth is expected in the PAH market from 2019 to 2029.
  • The publisher anticipates that nine late stage pipeline drugs will launch over the forecast period. These are expected to be the main driver of growth in the PAH market across the 7MM, alongside uptake of combination therapies.
  • A major unmet need is the absence of disease-modifying therapies in the PAH space. Companies are aiming to address this with first-in-line pipeline therapies, notably sotatercept.
  • The publisher expects Merck's sotatercept to become the top-selling drug in the PAH market with sales of $1.13 Billion in 2029.
  • In 2019, Johnson & Johnson dominated the PAH space. Throughout the forecast period, this is shifting to United Therapeutics, primarily due to development and launch of drug reformulations. The publisher predicts by 2029 Merck will become a leading competitor primarily due to its breakthrough therapy, sotatercept.

Key Questions Answered

  • What are the current key PAH treatments?
  • When will the late stage pipeline products launch, and how will it affect drug sales and the overall PAH market in the 7MM?
