OpportunityAnalyzer: Autism Spectrum Disorder - Opportunity Analysis and Forecasts to 2018
Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) is a chronically underserved market currently dominated by the two approved drugs, both of which are antipsychotics. There is off-label use of a multitude of other drugs which target different core and non-core symptoms of ASD. Since this disorder can first become apparent in very young children there is a need for medications which are safe and effective in the pediatric population. The ASD market is expected to grow remain relatively flat between 2012 and 2018, which is predominantly due to various drug patent expiration, and the introduction of novel therapies in the US and EU countries is not anticipated to offset this expected decline in the market. The new treatments will target some key unmet needs but opportunities will remain for drugs which can effectively target any of the many core and non-core symptoms of ASD, as well as offering an improved safety profile over currently used drugs.
