Moreover, therapeutic device developments, including advanced phototherapy equipment and targeted delivery systems, have improved treatment results for psoriasis patients. These advancements provide more efficient and easy options for treatment.


COVID-19 Impact

The COVID-19 pandemic had a significant impact on the psoriasis treatment market. The pandemic has led to reduced access to healthcare, increased stress and anxiety, and financial hardship for many patients with psoriasis. Stress is known to trigger or worsen psoriasis flare-ups, and the pandemic-induced psychological burden have influenced disease severity and treatment outcomes.

The global supply chain for pharmaceuticals and medical devices experienced disruptions during the pandemic. Manufacturing and distribution challenges, transportation delays, and increased demand for certain medications and supplies may have resulted in temporary shortages or delays in accessing psoriasis treatments.

However, the pandemic has also created some opportunities for the development of novel therapies that target specific pathways and mechanisms involved in psoriasis treatment. The pandemic has accelerated the adoption of telemedicine, increased emphasis on infection control, stimulated research on the interaction between psoriasis and COVID-19, led to a shift towards self-care and home-based treatments, and brought economic implications to the forefront.

Psoriasis Treatment Market Trends

The market is experiencing several notable trends that are shaping its development. Some key trends in the industry includes increasing adoption of biologic therapies, growing emphasis on precision medicine in the treatment of psoriasis, increasing focus on expanding topical treatment options, growing interest in combination therapies, increasing focus on patient-centric care, and technological advancements in phototherapy, such as narrowband UVB and targeted phototherapy.

Psoriasis Treatment Market Analysis

Psoriasis Treatment Market Size, By Drug Class, 2021 – 2032 (USD Billion)

Based on drug class, the psoriasis treatment market is segmented as TNF inhibitors, interleukins inhibitors, vitamin D analogs, and other drug classes. The interleukins inhibitors segment accounted for the largest share of 46.6% in 2022. Interleukin inhibitors have demonstrated significant success in the treatment of psoriasis. They directly target the inflammatory processes associated with the development and progression of psoriasis, resulting in considerable clinical relief and better skin clearing. Clinical trials have shown that they can provide immediate and persistent responses, making them a viable therapy choice for people with moderate to severe psoriasis.

Furthermore, interleukin inhibitors provide an important treatment option for patients who have not responded adequately to traditional therapies such as topical creams, phototherapy, or conventional systemic medications. For individuals with moderate to severe psoriasis who do not achieve satisfactory results with standard treatments, interleukin inhibitors offer a new and effective approach to disease management.


Psoriasis Treatment Market Share, By Type (2022)

Based on type, the psoriasis treatment market is segmented as psoriatic arthritis, plaque psoriasis, and other types. The plaque psoriasis segment held dominant market share of around 50.1% in 2022 and is expected to grow at a significant pace of 8.5% by 2032. Plaque psoriasis is the most common type of psoriasis, affecting a large proportion of the world's population.

However, despite the availability of many therapeutic options, there are still unmet medical requirements in plaque psoriasis care. Certain therapies may cause insufficient response, intolerance, or contraindications in some individuals. There is an ongoing effort towards developing novel medicines and treatment methods that provide greater efficacy, safety, and long-term results for people with plaque psoriasis.

Based on route of administration, the psoriasis treatment market is segmented parenteral, topical, and oral. The parenteral segment was anticipated to be worth USD 21.8 billion in 2022 and is expected to grow at 8.6% CAGR by 2032. Most drugs used for the treatment of psoriasis are available in subcutaneous injections and intravenous infusions. Parenteral administration allows for quick and direct delivery of the medication into the bloodstream. This results in a rapid onset of action, enabling faster relief of symptoms and potentially more immediate therapeutic effects. Moreover, parenteral administration allows for precise dosing and control over the amount of medication administered. This is particularly important in the case of potent psoriasis treatment drugs where accurate dosing is critical for achieving optimal therapeutic outcomes and minimizing the risk of adverse effects.

Based on distribution channel, the psoriasis treatment market is segmented as hospital pharmacies, retail pharmacies, and other distribution channels. The hospital pharmacies segment held a dominant market share of 64.8% in 2022 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 8.4% by 2032. Hospital pharmacies frequently have access to specialised drugs and therapies that may not be easily available in other healthcare settings. This is especially crucial for those who have severe or resistant psoriasis and require advanced therapy. Biologic drugs, immunomodulators, and other targeted medicines that require specialised handling and administration can be obtained and provided by pharmacies in hospitals.
