Rheumatoid Arthritis Therapies Market: Snapshot
The growth of the rheumatoid arthritis market is driven by macro-economic factors like the increase in aging population of many countries, which subsequently increases the number of patients suffering from rheumatoid arthritis. The prevalence of this disease is also seen to be high in women; one in every 12 women develops rheumatoid arthritis during her lifetime. There is also a rise in awareness about the disease in many developed regions. This has increased the rate of disease treatment rather than symptoms treatment.

These factors are expected to mark the advent of a bunch of new products that will hit the market within the next eight years.
