DRG Epidemiology's coverage of urticaria comprises epidemiological estimates of key patient populations across the major mature pharmaceutical markets (the United States, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, the United Kingdom, and Japan). We report the prevalence of urticaria for each country, as well as annualized case counts projected for the national population.

Most patient populations are forecast over a period of 20 years for the major mature pharmaceutical markets.

DRG Epidemiology's urticaria forecast will answer the following questions:

Of all people diagnosed with urticaria, how many in each country across the major mature pharmaceutical markets are drug-treated?

How will demographic trends, such as population aging and improving life expectancy, affect the epidemiology of urticaria over the forecast period?

All forecast data are available on the DRG Insights Platform in tabular format, with options to download to MS Excel. All populations are accompanied by a comprehensive description of the methods and data sources used, with hyperlinks to external sources. A summary evidence table generated as part of our systematic review of the epidemiological literature is also provided for full transparency into research and methods.

DRG Epidemiology provides at least ten years of forecast data for the following urticaria patient populations:

Total 12-month prevalent cases of chronic spontaneous urticaria

Total 12-month prevalent cases of chronic inducible urticaria

Diagnosed 12-month prevalent cases of chronic spontaneous urticaria.

Diagnosed 12-month prevalent cases of chronic inducible urticaria.

Diagnosed 12-month prevalent cases of chronic urticaria.

Treatment subpopulation(s).

Note: Coverage may vary by country and region.
