Hepatitis B virus (HBV) infection is a major public health burden in China, and chronically infected HBV patients are at a high risk of developing hepatic cirrhosis and hepatocellular carcinoma. The majority of hepatitis B virus patients in China are prescribed older, generic agents such as pegylated interferon-α-2a (Pegasys), pegylated interferon-α-2b (Peg-Intron), tenofovir disoproxil fumarate (Viread), and entecavir (Baraclude). However, we expect the recently launched tenofovir alafenamide (Gilead’s Vemlidy), in addition to several novel therapies set to launch for hepatitis B virus during the forecast period, to result in significant growth of the Chinese hepatitis B virus market. Moreover, we expect ongoing reforms in China’s regulatory and A&R landscape to encourage MNCs to enter the hepatitis B virus market.
