Patients with osteoporosis are at increased risk of suffering fractures due to a loss in bone strength. These fractures, in turn, place a considerable burden on public health systems. The osteoporosis therapy market is maturing, and treatment of the disease is associated with significant unmet need, particularly for therapies that are safer and more efficacious, especially those that can reduce the risk of nonvertebral fractures (e.g., hip fractures). The launch of several key therapies will lead to significant market changes over the 2017-2027 forecast period. In particular, Amgen/UCB/Astellas BioPharma’s romosozumab and Radius Health’s abaloparatide—in both subcutaneous(SC) and transdermal (TD) administration—will energize the market.
