GlobalData estimated the global RA market to be valued at $9 billion in 2009. It is forecast to grow by 6% annually for the next eight years to reach $14.3 billion by 2017. This growth is primarily attributed to high incidence and prevalence rate, high prescription rate of drugs and a strong pipeline portfolio.
