In 2010, the Parkinson’s disease market is estimated to generate $2.2bn across the seven major markets. As the market approaches maturity, Datamonitor forecasts growth to slow to a compound annual growth rate of 2.3% (2010-19), as pipeline entries partially offset the generic incursion of key brands.

The dopamine agonist Mirapex has been chosen as Datamonitor’s gold standard, on account of its tolerability and broad label for all severities of Parkinson’s disease. None of the pipeline drugs assessed are expected to replace Mirapex’s position over 2010–19.
Parkinson’s disease market growth is set to slump, as unimpressive pipeline launches will fail to offset generic incursion. The US market will experience a considerable drop in market share, from 29% in 2010 to 25% in 2019, as generics take hold.
New reformulations and the novel adenosine A2a receptor drugs do not offer the benefits or differentiation required to usurp existing drugs.
