Orphan drugs with some kind of alternatives, and/or prevalent off-label use are expected to be among the first to face the prospects of revision of reimbursement rates.

Breakthroughs in the field of biotechnology are expected to improve understanding of rare diseases and assist development of novel therapies. Further, the numerous collaborative research programs across the US and Europe, intended to improve patient access to appropriate medical care and support provide manufacturers, healthcare experts and patients with epidemiological research data on the disease. This trend will result in greater awareness among patients over available treatment options. Improved awareness of rare diseases and therapies available is expected to drive demand for orphan drugs. Biological Orphan Drugs represents the largest market segment with growth led by high prices of biological drugs and the ability of such drugs to target specific sites.
