Global Polyethylene Industry – Emerging Markets in Asia-Pacific to Drive Modest Growth, New Report Launched

Moderate Growth in the Global Polyethylene Industry

The global polyethylene market is experiencing a period of slow growth as China and India, which are key drivers of demand in the Asia-Pacific region, are witnessing low Gross Domestic Product (GDP) growth rates due to the slowing of the manufacturing sectors and currency decline. This has had an adverse impact upon polyethylene demand and, with lower than historic GDP growth forecast for China and other developing countries in Asia, lower growth in petrochemical product demand is also expected.

Europe, where demand has increased slightly over the last decade, is expected to perform better in the next five years. The market in the US, where prices for natural gas are lower and investment in the petrochemical industry is rising, is forecast to grow due to higher demand from both its domestic and export markets compared with the trend over the last 10 years.

China and Russia are forecast to be the largest contributors to new capacity over the next five years; both are expected to add more than 3.5 million metric tons per year (mmty) of capacity during this period. India will rank third with more than 2.5 mmty of new capacity likely to come on-stream over the next five years.

Asia-Pacific to Continue to Drive Polyethylene Demand

Although emerging economies in the Asia-Pacific region have slowed over the last two years, polyethylene demand is still forecast to grow at a faster pace than in other regions and so will continue to drive the industry. Polyethylene demand is forecast to increase by 8.23 mmty in Asia-Pacific, a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 4.8% over the next five years. Demand in North America, South America, Europe, and the Middle East and Africa is expected to grow at a CAGR of 2.4%, 3.3%, 2.8% and 3.7%, respectively.

China and Russia to Add the Most Capacity through 2018

China and Russia are expected to add the most capacity over the next five years, accounting for 13.1% and 12.5% of global capacity additions. This capacity will be almost entirely in the form of new plants.

China is expanding its polyethylene capacity, primarily to satisfy demand from its growing population. The country’s per capita plastics consumption is still significantly lower than in the developed world, providing opportunities for further expansion. Russia is expanding its polyethylene capacity in an effort to enhance its position in the petrochemicals sector and reduce its reliance upon imports.

Global Demand, Capacity and Prices for Polypropylene – End-Use Sectors in Asia-Pacific to Drive Growth, New Report Launched

Demand from Key End-Use Applications Accelerating Polypropylene Industry Growth

Polypropylene’s qualities make it ideal for use in a range of sectors, such as packaging, electrical, household appliances, and automotive. The packaging sector accounts for 30.5% of global polypropylene demand and is driven in turn by demand from developing Chinese and Indian markets. China is the second-largest packaging market in the world and has huge growth potential due to its low per-capita plastic consumption. India is also a lucrative market due to a growing population, low per-capita plastic consumption and industrializing economy.

The electrical sector also accounts for a significant share of demand with 13.6%, followed by equipment and facilities, household appliances, automotive, and construction. Together, they account for 51.1% of global polypropylene demand. Other sectors account for the remaining 18.4%.

China and Russia to Add the Most Capacity in the Next Five Years

China and Russia will be the leading contributors to polypropylene capacity in the future and will account for 45% of global capacity addition over the next five years. A demand-side push is driving capacity addition in China, forcing it to produce more domestic polypropylene, whereas in Russia, the main driver is the desire to diversify export revenue by investing in the petrochemicals sector. Most of Russia’s export revenue currently comes from the petroleum sector.

Venezuela and India will be the third and fourth-largest contributors to capacity over the next five years, and both are investing in the polypropylene sector to cater to the domestic market and replace imports.

Prices are Expected to Increase at a Steady Rate

Polypropylene prices are expected to grow at a steady rate over the next five years. The Middle East will remain the most economical polypropylene-producing region, but North America may surpass Europe as the most expensive place to buy polypropylene due to an ongoing supply shortage of propylene feedstock from ethane-based steam crackers, which produce negligible quantities of propylene.

In South America and Asia-Pacific, the propylene industry is largely naphtha-based and so polypropylene prices in these regions are likely to remain high. They also have healthy demand for polypropylene and so a gradual price increase is likely to take place.

Acne Vulgaris – Opportunity Analysis and Forecasts to 2018, New Report Launched

Steady and Sustained Growth in the US and EU Acne Markets Expected Between 2012–2018

Publisher estimates the 2012 pharmacological therapy sales for acne to total approximately $2.3 billion across the six major pharmaceutical markets (6MM) covered within this report: the US, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, and the UK. The US contributes 91% of these sales, generating an estimated $2.1 billion in 2012. With $207.0m in sales from the 5EU, Germany was the largest market with an estimated $54.3m in sales in 2012.

By the end of the forecast period in 2018, acne sales are forecast to reach over $2.8 billion, growing at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 3.9% over the six-year forecast period. The majority of sales will come from the US, which will maintain its 2012 lead and command 93% of the market in 2018. A substantial amount of growth in that market is attributed to the rapid uptake of Galderma’s Epiduo (benzoyl peroxide and adapalene) for moderate patients and the continued success of isotretinoin. The anticipated launch of AndroScience’s androgen receptor degradation enhancer, ASC-J9, in 2017 will add a new molecular entity to the market for acne for the first time in approximately 30 years. Photocure’s Visonac is also expected to launch in 2017, adding photodynamic therapies to the treatment options for acne patients. Together, these products are expected to add approximately $200m in sales to the acne market in 2018.

Major drivers of growth in the acne market over the forecast period include:

  • Launch of AndroScience’s ASC-J9 in 2017, a therapeutic that is highly anticipated in the previously stagnant acne market and will make hormonal therapies available to males with acne. Publisher expects that ASC-J9 will be subject to rapid uptake.
  • Continued success and uptake of Galderma’s Epiduo, with label expansion into the pediatric population and launch of the Epiduo TAP program to improve patient compliance.
  • Launch of Photocure’s Visonac in 2017; potentially the first photodynamic therapy for use in acne.

Major barriers to the growth of the acne market during the forecast period include:

  • Increasing emphasis for acne therapies to demonstrate cost-effectiveness, particularly in a number of 5EU countries. Austerity measures in Europe will pose a challenge for pharmaceutical companies trying to justify high prices of novel therapies and reformulations when compared with the cost-effective generic drugs that have a long history of use in acne.
  • Pharmaceutical companies are not inclined to invest in acne research, viewing R&D in this area as a poor return on investment. This is especially true when compared with therapies such as biologic agents that are used in other dermatology indications such as psoriasis and garner lucrative sales. Increased regulatory rigidness has put pressure on the need for longer clinical trials to reflect the chronic nature of acne.

Pharmaceutical Giants Revisiting the Acne Arena, Deploying Notable R&D Strategies to Attain Market Share

Despite its considerable patient population (estimated at 103.9 million in 2012 across the US and 5EU), the acne market has often been overlooked and has remained stagnant for the past few decades, with no novel drugs entering the arena. The lack of dedicated research programs has been attributed to pharmaceutical companies viewing topicals, the mainstay of acne therapy, as being inexpensive with a poor return on investment. Instead, the market has shifted towards reformulations of existing products and/or fixed-dose combination therapies. Examples of the latter include combination products by key dermatology players, such as Galderma’s Epiduo (adapalene and benzoyl peroxide), GlaxoSmithKline’s (GSK) Duac (benzoyl peroxide and clindamycin phosphate), and Astellas’ Zineryt (zinc acetate and erythromycin). By simplifying treatment, studies have demonstrated that compliance, and therefore efficacy, can be improved by the synergistic effect of combining two active ingredients. Meanwhile, novel formulations include microsponges, liposomes, nanoemulsions, aerosol foams, subantimicrobial-dose doxycycline and extended-release minocycline. Reformulations are a low-risk strategy for Big Pharma, compared with investments into new molecular entities for acne.

Label expansions in acne have also been explored as a lifecycle management strategy, as exhibited by Galderma’s entry into the large and untapped pediatric market. In February 2013, Galderma obtained a label expansion for children under 12 years of age for its lead product, Epiduo. The need for an acne treatment for children younger than 12 years of age had previously been overlooked due to safety concerns, the sensitive nature of skin in young individuals, and the rarity of the condition in children. However, recent evidence suggests that acne is more prevalent in younger individuals than it once was, potentially due to the decreasing age of onset for puberty. Targeting the previously untapped pediatric market is a strategy that Publisher expects will be followed by other dermatology companies during the coming decade.

Another corporate trend is the strategic acquisition of key dermatology products by Big Pharma. A notable event in 2009 involved the acquisition of Stiefel, a leading dermatology company, by GSK for $3.6 billion.

Innovative Products in Acne Should Focus on Cost-Effectiveness, Potential to Improve Compliance

The biggest unmet needs in acne include the need for new and innovative products, for improved compliance, and for less expensive products relative to existing therapies. Historically, pharmaceutical companies have been reluctant to enter the acne market due to the poor return on investment in this competitive landscape. This attitude has inhibited progress toward developing disease-modifying agents, and agents with more long-lasting effects. However, the acne landscape is expected to change in the near- to long-term, with the launch of AndroScience’s ASC-J9 and Photocure’s Visonac, and additional companies involved in research for innovative acne products.

Although low-cost products are available for acne, these typically contain a single active ingredient that is not very effective for acne, especially in more severe cases. Use of two or more topical treatment options for acne is challenging and adherence to these treatments is often very poor. This is more pronounced in adolescent sufferers, who often struggle to incorporate the various treatment regimens into their daily routine, viewing them as time-consuming, inconvenient and messy. Pharmaceutical companies have responded by combining two active ingredients into specially formulated combination products; however, the costs of these treatments are prohibitive. As such, there remains a need for a cost-effective combination product that will allow better patient compliance.

Acne Market to Experience a Period of Investment in Research

A continued unmet need for acne is the need for new and innovative products to treat the underlying condition. Also necessary is further investment of time and resources into understanding the disease pathophysiology. The goal of these investigations would be to develop molecules that can specifically target critical pathways in the acne pathophysiology. There is a move in the acne field towards treatment with biologics, particularly in targeted monoclonal antibodies (mAbs), with two mAbs under development, XBiotech’s Phase II mAb against interleukin (IL)-1α, and Xoma’s Phase II mAb against IL-1β. The targeted approach offered by biologics could allow superior specificity for the treatment of acne compared with other therapy options.

Focusing on small molecules, hormonal antagonists such as androgen- and estrogen-based molecules are also being investigated. Given the acne market’s substantial patient pool and increasing understanding of the disease’s pathophysiology, Publisher expects continued interest in the acne market from biotechs and pharmaceutical companies over the coming decade.

AndroScience’s ASC-J9 to Renew Hope for More Disease-Modifying Therapies That Can Further Challenge the Established Acne Landscape

There is considerable excitement around the potential of AndroScience’s ASC-J9 in the acne market. ASC-J9 not only represents a novel mechanism of action, but also its entry to the market will be a much-needed addition to a stagnant market. ASC-J9 functions to target the principal hormone receptor associated with acne, the androgen receptor, a cause of acne in both men and women. In addition to use in female patients with moderate to severe acne, ASC-J9 will allow penetration into the male acne market, something not achieved with currently available hormonal treatments. Furthermore, due to its topical formulation, systemic side effects are likely to be reduced, if not altogether ameliorated. When compared with isotretinoin, the current standard for patients with severe acne, ASC-J9 has a better safety profile and is not teratogenic, which poses a major barrier for isotretinoin. ASC-J9 is expected to become a major product for the treatment of patients with severe acne and is forecast to experience rapid uptake.

Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) – Opportunity Analysis and Forecasts to 2018, New Report Launched

Patent Expiration of Rilutek to Cause Negative Growth in Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis Treatment Market by 2018.

The amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) treatment market value will decline from $64 million in 2013 to $38 million by 2018, at a negative Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 10.05%, according to research and consulting firm by Publisher.

The company’s latest report states that the largest factor in this decline, which will occur over seven major markets (7MM: the US, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, the UK, and Japan), will be the patent expiration of Rilutek (riluzole), the only approved therapy for ALS.

As a consequence, Publisher forecasts that the ALS treatment market in the US is set to suffer a substantial reduction in sales over the forecast period, from $38 million in 2013 to $16 million by 2020, at a negative CAGR of 16.10%.

Seinor Analyst covering Neurology, says: “The effect of Rilutek’s patent expiration will be exacerbated by the lack of alternative treatments in the ALS pipeline. Additionally, the recent failure of several previously promising Phase III pipeline compounds has restricted the growth of and interest in the ALS therapeutics market.”

The analyst believes that there is a drastic need for new therapies that can alleviate the symptoms of the disease and stop or reverse its pathology. The unmet needs in ALS are reflected in the limited diversity of the current pipeline, but no dominant theories have emerged to help guide drug development, according to Nicholson.

“There are two pipeline drugs that will supplement Rilutek and off-label therapies. AB Science’s AB-1010, an oral tyrosine kinase inhibitor, targets the inflammatory processes that are believed to contribute to the pathogenesis of ALS, while Cytokinetics’ tirasemtiv aims to improve muscle strength through fast-muscle troponin activation. While these medications will provide greater relief of symptoms, they will not be able to reverse the course of the disease,” the analyst concludes.

OpportunityAnalyzer: Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) – Opportunity Analysis and Forecasts to 2018 report provides an overview of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), including etiology and pathophysiology, general symptoms, quality of life, country-specific treatment recommendations and epidemiologic data. It also covers annualized ALS market, treatment and usage patterns from 2013 to 2018.
