GlobalData has released its new Country report, "PharmaPoint: Multiple Sclerosis - France Drug Forecast and Market Analysis to 2022". Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a chronic, inflammatory neurological disorder characterized pathologically by demyelination, axonal transection and neurodegeneration within the central nervous system. With curative therapy still elusive, current disease management is dependent on life-long pharmacotherapy with disease-modifying therapies (DMT). The dominance of first-line injectable DMTs, including the interferon beta (IFNB) agents: Bayer's Betaseron/Betaferon (IFNB-1b), Biogen's Avonex (IFNB-1a) and Merck's Rebif (IFNB-1a), and Teva's Copaxone (glatiramer acetate), has been a salient feature of the MS therapeutics market. However, the competitive landscape is undergoing significant change with the emergence of oral therapies, several pipeline products with notable efficacies, and looming generics/biosimilars following the patent expiries of key branded products during the forecast period. In addition, the entry of new companies such as Sanofi/Genzyme and F. Hoffmann-La-Roche/Genentech will challenge the position of the established players in the MS marketplace.

The main driver of growth in this market is the launch of new MS DMTs, including oral agents that can be used as first-line therapy. Based on our primary research, French physicians are generally more receptive to products with novel mechanisms of action, which are likely to be priced higher than older drugs. In addition, with the high proportion of MS patients in France having a progressive MS subtype, the launch of new DMTs that specifically target SPMS and PPMS, such as masitinib and siponimod, will greatly increase treatment rates in these patients. France also has a lower-than-average rate of generic substitution compared with other countries, which will help off-patent drugs maintain their sales, although this may change during the forecast period due to government cost-cutting strategies.
