The global Idiopathic Thrombocytopenic Purpura Therapeutics Market is segmented according to products and regions. As per products, the classifications are TPO-RA (thrombopoetin receptor agonist), anti-D immunoglobulin, intravenous immunoglobulin (IVIG), anti-D immunoglobulins, corticosteroids, and others. Corticosteroids were valued over USD 125 million in 2013 and are the most widely preferred drug for treating ITP. Its high share in overall revenues can be attributed to its low price. TPO-RA can experience surging demand on account of commercialization of Avatrombopag. This can be attributed to the use of TPO-RA in splenectomized patients suffering relapses. Avatrombopag can act as a second line of defense due to its positive clinical trial results.

High response rates displayed by patients administered with Eltrombopag and Romiplostim can positively impact the TPO-RA segment till 2020. Other therapeutic classes are interferon, immunosuppressant, and monoclonal antibodies (mAbs). mAbs such as Rituximab were used frequently in Europe till 2013.

North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, and RoW (Rest of the World) are regional segments of the worldwide ITP market. North America led the overall industry in 2013 owing to favorable government initiatives, rising ITP cases, and high research funding. Clinical trials based on combination therapy and drug developments are expected to spur regional demand over the forecast period. North America had a revenue share exceeding 40% in 2013.

Europe was the second largest market in 2013 propelled by high product penetration and favorable initiatives pertaining to its production. Asia Pacific is expected to prosper considerably over the next 6 years due to the untapped markets in India and China.
