Commenting on the report, an analyst from TechNavio’s team said: “One of the main trends witnessed in the Global Psoriasis Therapeutics market is the increased focus on combination therapies. A current trend witnessed in the Global Psoriasis Therapeutics market is the use of combination therapies for treating psoriasis. Light therapy along with topical treatment products are generally used in combination for the treatment of mild to moderate level of psoriasis. For severe psoriasis oral or injected drugs are used. Due to the severe side effects of these drugs, combination of therapies is used for the effective treatment of severe psoriasis. When the disease is more severe, topic therapy products such as cream is used in combination with oral medications or light therapy. For instance, Anthralin is sometimes used in combination with UV light. Light therapy is also used sometimes in combination with medications. Moreover, in Goeckerman therapy UVB treatment and coal tar treatment is used together as it is more effective than single therapy.”
According to the report, one of the main factors driving the market is the increasing uptake of biologics.
