Bipolar disorder is a mental disorder characterized by periods of mania and depression. The frequency, severity, and pattern of these episodes can vary considerably over time and between individuals, making bipolar disorder one of the most challenging psychiatric disorders to manage. The bipolar disorder market is widely genericized, with additional key brands expected to face patent or data exclusivity expiries during the forecast period. The bipolar disorder market size is anticipated to contract significantly between 2014 and 2024, driven largely by the generic erosion of Otsukas Abilify, the highest selling bipolar disorder product in 2014. The uptake of novel atypical antipsychotic products will be a principal driver of growth over the forecast period, as these products offer clinical advantages that will drive strong uptake. However, sales of these agents will be limited by the continued utilization of established generic products. There are currently only two products in Phase III development, which indicates that bipolar disorder will remain a field of high unmet need during the forecast period.
Key Questions Answered
- The bipolar disorder market is heavily genericized and many key players have chosen to deprioritize the indication. In light of this, what are the current clinical and environmental unmet needs? Will there be opportunities in this market for drug developers throughout the forecast period?
- The current late-stage bipolar disorder pipeline is sparse, with only two products in Phase III development. What impact will these drugs have on the market? How will they affect the treatment algorithm for bipolar disorder? Will these drugs fulfil any of the unmet needs for bipolar disorder?
- The management of bipolar disorder patients is challenging and a large number of variables can impact treatment outcomes. How does the diagnosis and treatment of bipolar disorder differ amongst the 8MM? Which treatment options are most commonly prescribed in each market, and how will prescribing patterns change over the forecast period?
- The main driver of growth in the bipolar disorder market will be the uptake of novel atypical antipsychotic products, such as Otsuka/Lundbecks Abilify Maintena and Allergan/Gedeon Richter/Mitsubishi Tanabes Vraylar. These agents are forecast to be the highest selling bipolar disorder products by 2024, accounting for 34.9% of the bipolar disorder market in the 8MM.
- There are very few products approved for the treatment of major depressive episodes, despite the fact that patients most commonly experience this episode type. This unmet need is not expected to be addressed during the forecast period due to the sparsity of the late-stage pipeline.
- The biggest barrier for growth in the bipolar disorder market will be fierce competition from generic products. This limits market opportunities for new and existing players, as uptake of novel pipeline products would be hindered by their premium price point.
- Considerable opportunity remains for products with superior safety profiles compared to the currently available drugs. KOLs noted that EPS and metabolic changes were significant concerns related to the antipsychotic drugs.
