The U.S. asthma market has become increasingly crowded with a large number of approved therapies. Those include several LABA/ICSFDCs (i.e., GlaxoSmithKline’s Advair and Breo, AstraZeneca’s Symbicort, Merck & Co.’s Dulera, and Teva Pharmaceutical’s AirDuo and its authorized generic), numerous ICSs (e.g., GSK’s Flovent, Teva’s Qvar), a number of SABAs (e.g., Teva’s ProAir, GSK’s Ventolin), montelukast (Merck’s Singulair), Boehringer Ingelheim’s Spiriva, and biologics (Roche’s Xolair, GSK’s Nucala, Teva’s Cinqair, and AstraZeneca’s Fasenra), among others. The market is expected to become even more competitive in the next few years, with upcoming approvals of additional biological agents and triple LABA/LAMA/ICS combinations, making brand differentiation and understanding of key patient characteristics ever more critical for marketers.
