PharmaPoint: Type 1 Diabetes - Global Drug Forecast and Market Analysis to 2023


Type 1 diabetes (T1D) is an autoimmune disease that permanently destroys beta cells of the pancreatic islet, which means that the body can no longer produce insulin. Over the last 90 years, insulin therapy has been evolving continuously, as at present, no other treatment can be offered to a patient who is newly diagnosed with T1D. A variety of insulin analogs with different times of action - long-acting as well as short or rapid-acting analogs - have been on the market for the past decade. In addition, many other developments were happening in parallel, such as glucose monitoring and significant advances in insulin delivery systems. The T1D market will approximately double over the forecast period, growing from $6.6 billiion to $13.6 billion.This growth will be fueled by the significant increase in T1D prevalence as well as the uptake of the novel ultra-long-acting insulin analogs, novel ultra-rapid formulations of insulin analogs, and the adjunct therapies for T1D. The launches of these novel products will offset the dip in sales caused by the patent expiries of seven insulin products, and the consequent emergence of biosimilars.


Key Questions Answered

- Insulin therapy has been the cornerstone of the T1D treatment. The advances in insulin therapies have contributed to better treatment of T1D patients; nevertheless, the overall life expectancy in T1D patients is still 10-15 years less than in the healthy population. Therefore, there are considerably high unmet needs within the indication. What are the main unmet needs in this market? Will the drugs under development fulfil the unmet needs of the T1D market?
- The current late-stage T1D pipeline encompasses one novel ultra-long-acting insulin analog, several novel ultra-rapid formulations of already marketed human insulins and rapid-insulin analogs, biosimilar versions of marketed insulins, and last but not least, adjunctive therapies that are focused on complementing intensive insulin therapy. Will the late-stage drugs make a significant impact on the T1D market? Which of these drugs will have the highest peak sales at the highest CAGR, and why?
- We have seen a significant increase in T1D diagnosed prevalence over the past 10 years. How will epidemiological changes impact the growth of the future market?

Key Findings

- The main driver of the enormous expansion of the T1D market will be the significant increase in T1D diagnosed prevalence as well as the uptake of novel ultra-long-acting insulin analogs , novel ultra-rapid-acting formulations of currently marketed rapid-acting insulin analogs and adjunct therapies such as GLP-1 RAs and SGLT-2, inhibitors.
- The major global barrier for the T1Dmarket will be the biosimilar erosion of the leading insulin brands for T1D treatment, such as Lantus (insulin glargine), Levemir (insulin detemir), Humalog (insulin lispro), and NovoLog (insulin aspart).
- The dynamics of the insulin market will not change drastically over the next 10 years in terms of the current and future players in the T1D market and GlobalData expects that Novo Nordisk, Sanofi, and Eli Lilly will continue ruling this space, as they are undertaking various strategies to defend their franchises from upcoming biosimilar erosion.
- One of the largest unmet needs is a need for therapies that would interfere with the pathogenic processes involved in the eradication of the beta cells in T1D patients. Other unmet needs include hypoglycemia avoidance, weight loss and control of the associated metabolic syndrome, treatment for brittle diabetes, and increased patient compliance.
