The market of rheumatology therapeutics suffers restraints due to the entry of biosimilars despite healthy sales and the positive impact of the expanding geriatric population.

The opportunities that the market has are a growing aging population which leads to an increase in the number of joint problems, a rise in the disposable income of individuals, and increased concerns regarding health.
