Psoriasis – Geographic Focus: China – Psoriasis – China In-Depth (China)

China’s psoriasis market has grown significantly over the last few years owing to the growing use of biologics to treat the disease. We expect the market to expand further over the 2021-2031 forecast period from $424 million to $942 million, fueled by the continued uptake of targeted therapies—i.e., IL-17 inhibitors, IL-12 / IL-23 inhibitors, IL-23 inhibitors, and TNF-α inhibitors—as well as the entry of novel oral systemic therapies, including Amgen / Fosun’s Otezla and BMS’s deucravacitinib. While the evolving market access and reimbursement framework (e.g., NRDL, VBP programs) in China will improve patients’ access to these treatments, use of most of these drugs will still be relegated to later lines of therapy owing to reimbursement restrictions as they penetrate a market comprising a large array of entrenched traditional treatment options including topicals and conventional oral systemics (e.g., MTX, acitretin), most of which are generically available.
