Insights Presented in the Report

“Amongst Type, Rhinitis segment hold the major share.”

Based on Type, the market is fragmented into Eye Allergy, Skin Allergy, Food Allergy, Asthma, Rhinitis, and Others. The Rhinitis segment dominated the market in 2020 and is expected to grow at lucrative growth owing to the rising prevalence of allergic rhinitis all over the world. Globally, 339 million are suffering from asthma, 200 to 250 million have a food allergy and 400 million have rhinitis. This drastic increase in the prevalence of allergic respiratory diseases like rhinosinusitis and bronchial asthma is due to environmental changes, industrialization, and immunologic interactions. Allergic rhinitis (hay fever) affects between 10 and 30 percent of all adults in the U.S. and as many as 40 percent of children. There are over 60 million people in the U.S. that are suffering from allergic rhinitis, and the number is continuously increasing.

“Amongst Distribution Channels, Hospital Pharmacies segment holds the major share.”

Based on Distribution Channels, the market is fragmented into Hospital Pharmacies, Retail Pharmacies, Online Retailers, and Others. The Hospital Pharmacies segment dominated the market in 2020 owing to the surging number of hospitals and infectious diseases worldwide.

“Amongst Treatment Type, Anti-Allergy Drugs segment holds the major share.”

Based on Treatment Type, the market is fragmented into Anti-Allergy Drugs and Immunotherapy. The Anti-Allergy Drugs segment dominated the market in 2020 and is expected to grow at lucrative growth during the forecasted period owing to the convenience of self-administration, compactness, and easy manufacturing of oral dosage forms. Anti-Allergy Drugs include an antihistamine (brompheniramine and cetirizine), corticosteroids (dexamethasone), mast cell stabilizers (cromolyn), decongestants (phenylephrine), and other medicine (Anti-IgE, Leukotriene). The introduction of newer forms of immunotherapy i.e., ‘sublingual immunotherapy’ also intensifies the segment growth. For instance, in April 2017, the U.S FDA approved a house dust mite sublingual immunotherapy tablet for the treatment of house dust mite-induced allergic rhinitis in adults. Moreover, the rise in the patient pool suffering from different types of allergies is a major factor driving the market.

“Amongst Dosage Form, Oral segment holds the major share.”

Based on Dosage Form, the market is fragmented into Oral, Inhalers, Intranasal, and Others. The Oral segment dominated the market in 2020 and is expected to grow at lucrative growth during the forecasted period. Anti-allergy oral drugs have the advantage of self-usage and easier manufacturing processes which aids in the segment growth. The use of antihistamines for chronic allergies and corticosteroids like prednisolone which can be taken orally intensifies the segment growth. Increasing R&D in allergies and their treatment is expected to boost the growth of the market. For instance, in November 2019, research conducted by the Center for Allergy and Asthma Research at Stanford University and funded by AnaptysBio, Inc. found that a single dose of etokimab could have the potential to desensitize peanut-allergic participants and possibly reduce atopy-related adverse events.
