Research and Markets Logo

Sales of drugs in the US DO market were approximately $208.8M in 2018, not taking into account over-the-counter (OTC) treatments for the disease. As one of the largest onychomycosis markets in the world, the US is expected to see the market grow to $676.5M by 2028, at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 12.5% from 2018-2028. This growth will be mainly driven by the launch of several new topical therapies. However, the patents of Jublia and Kerydin, the only branded marketed products, are expected to expire over the forecast and thus face generic competition.

The DO pipeline consists entirely of topicals, accounting for the moderate growth of the market over the next ten years. The three pipeline agents are Moberg Pharma's MOB-015, Blueberry therapeutics' BB2603-om, and Hallux Inc.'s HTS-519

Key Highlights

  • The epidemiology team forecast an increasing prevalence of DO, representing one of the main drivers for market growth.
  • Pipeline topical agents need to demonstrate efficacy on par with oral treatments through novel mechanisms of action.
  • Highly efficacious, yet safe therapy remains the highest unmet need of DO treatment.
  • Opportunities are expected in patients who prefer topical treatments in order to avoid any side effects and prevent drug-drug interactions with other medications.
