The report highlights trends prevailing in the Middle East and Africa asthma drugs market and the factors driving market along with those that act as hindrances.


The treatment and management therapies for asthma have continued to develop with various drugs in the pipeline. Tezepelumab is a recently FDA-approved injection as an add-on maintenance treatment to improve severe asthma symptoms and the patient’s current asthma medicines. The drug targets and blocks thymic stromal lymphopoietin (TSLP), a key epithelial cytokine (cell-signaling proteins). Similarly, Masitinib, developed by AB Science, is an orally administered tyrosine kinase inhibitor that targets mast cells through inhibition of tyrosine kinases c-Kit, LYN, and FYN; it has recently been granted authorization by the French Medicine Agency to initiate a Phase III study to evaluate the drug in patients with Primary Progressive Multiple Sclerosis (PPMS) or non-active Secondary Progressive Multiple Sclerosis (nSPMS). Astegolimab is another promising monoclonal antibody showing promising efficacy in reducing asthma exacerbation rates. The emphasis on precision medicine for asthma control through the development of new asthma guidelines is also expected to create a positive change toward asthma drugs and individualized care.

In 2020, the FDA approved the triple therapy of fluticasone furoate, umeclidinium, and vilanterol (Trelegy Ellipta, GSK) for the treatment of asthma in patients aged 18 years and above. The approval was based on the CAPTAIN study (Clinical study of Asthma Patients receiving Triple therapy through A single INhaler), which showed significant improvements in lung function after using the triple therapy compared to fluticasone furoate and vilanterol in a single daily dose and an easy-to-use inhaler.

Various other research and clinical studies point toward the growth of the asthma drugs market with drug combinations, novel drugs, and other modes of drug delivery under research. These developments have created several drugs that resulted in a positive change, and with the ongoing research landscape, further drug discovery and development are expected in the coming years.
