Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) is a progressive and debilitating lung disease characterized by scarring (fibrosis) of the lungs that gets worse over time and limits a person’s ability to breathe. There is no known cause for IPF and currently there is no cure. Patients experience persistent dry cough and shortness of breath with exertion. Medications such as Pirfenidone and Nintedanib are used to slow the progression of the disease and improve quality of life. However, lung transplant is the only treatment option that may prolong survival for some patients.
The global Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis Market is estimated to be valued at Us$ 4825.57 Bn in 2024 and is expected to exhibit a CAGR Of 5.1% over the forecast period 2024-2031, as highlighted in a new report published by Coherent Market Insights.
Market key trends:
One of the key trends in the IPF market is the increasing adoption of anti-fibrotic therapies such as Pirfenidone and Nintedanib. These drugs have shown significant efficacy in slowing the rate of lung function decline in IPF patients. Treatment guidelines recommend early diagnosis and prompt initiation of anti-fibrotic therapy to better manage the disease progression. Pirfenidone was the first anti-fibrotic drug approved by FDA for treatment of mild to moderate IPF in 2014. Nintedanib received FDA approval for IPF treatment in 2015. Ongoing clinical trials are exploring newer molecules that can further improve patient outcomes by targeting specific mechanisms involved in fibrogenesis. Emergence of effective pharmacological treatments is expected to drive the growth of the IPF market during the forecast period.
