Orphan drugs are specialized pharmaceutical agents that are administered for treatment of rare (orphan) diseases. These diseases have a very low prevalence rate, hence, pharmaceutical companies do not readily invest in these drugs as the returns on investment in orphan drugs is risky when compared with non-orphan drugs. Moreover, multiple clinical trials for drug testing cannot be voluntarily performed due to the small patient population. However, orphan drugs have shown tremendous potential in diagnosis and treatment of cancer, this trend is expected to continue throughout the forecast period. In addition, the increase in indications of orphan drugs to treat an array of different diseases such as lymphoma, leukemia, myeloma, and others boost the market growth.

In addition, growth in novel indications designated for known orphan drugs, and untapped emerging markets thereby provide lucrative opportunities for market growth. However, limited patient pool for clinical trial & product marketing and high treatment costs per patient restrain the market growth.

The oncologic disease type segment occupies the greatest share in the orphan drug market owing to the array of diverse forms of rare cancers, such as leukemia, myeloma, angiosarcoma, and others prevalent in the patient population. Whereas, the renal cell carcinoma indication is anticipated to grow at the highest rate. The growth for this segment is due to increase in investment in R&D throughout the world along with surge in awareness about kidney cancer. Multiple myeloma currently dominates the indication segment and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 7.8%.

According to Sriram Radhakrishnan, Team Lead, Healthcare at Allied Market Research, "Orphan drugs form a niche yet considerably profitable segment of the pharmaceutical industry. Furthermore, the market exclusivity periods enjoyed by these drugs owing to favorable government legislations especially in the U.S. and Europe add to their value and profitability."
