Belviq (Obesity) - Forecast and Market Analysis to 2022
After a more than decade-long dormancy, the obesity market is undergoing a revival with the advent of several novel therapies that will lend considerable visibility to this indication space. This includes the use of combination therapies that simultaneously target multiple pathways and regulate appetite control, as well as novel molecular entities with new mechanisms of action. Due to this growing pipeline of late-stage drugs, this market is expected to experience substantial growth over the next decade. The main drivers of growth will be a large overweight and obese population that need pharmacological intervention, the increasingly frequent prescription of pharmacological therapy as physicians make preemptive efforts to curtail disease progression with earlier treatment, as well as greater responsibility of third party payers for reimbursement and thus allow greater access of medications to patients.
Belviq (lorcaserin), a product of Arena Pharmaceuticals, was the second anti-obesity drug to arrive in the market after a long pharmacotherapy hiatus, coming nine months after the launch of Vivus Qsymia as one of the main competitors. It is not yet approved in any of the European markets, Canada, Brazil, or Japan. The publisher forecasts that Belviq will not reach the European market until 2018, the Canadian market until 2017, and the Brazilian market until 2016. Arena and its marketing partner, Eisai, have given no indication of any plans to launch Belviq in Japan.
