Roche’s (NASDAQ:RHHBY) revenues have increased by $2.6 billion (net) between 2013-2017. Most of this change was led by growth in its autoimmune and oncology drugs. Expenses also grew by $1.4 billion during the same period. In-vitro diagnostics accounted for most of this change in expenses. Looking at gross profit, autoimmune drugs accounted for most of the change during the same period.

Most of this growth in autoimmune drugs was led by Actemra, followed by Xolair, and MabThera. Both MabThera and Xolair face loss of exclusivity in the U.S. in 2018/2019 while Actemra has already lost its exclusivity. As such, these drugs will likely face biosimilar competition, and we expect the future sales to decline. However, in 2018, we estimate the segment sales to be more or less flat.

On the other hand, oncology drugs should continue to see growth, thanks to new drugs in Roche’s oncology portfolio, including, Tecentriq, Perjeta, and Alecensa, among others. We expect that these drugs will more than offset revenue losses from MabThera, Avastin, and Herceptin, which will mostly lose their exclusivity in the U.S. in 2018/2019. Note that these three are blockbuster drugs for Roche, accounting for roughly 35% of company-wide sales in 2017. Overall we expect the segment to grow 3.6% in 2018 led by its new drugs.
