Anti-Parkinson Drugs Global Market Report 2022

Mar 16, 2022

" - Reddy’s, Intas, US WorldMeds, Zydus Cadila, Cipla, Strides, 1 A Pharma, Upsher-Smith, Lundbeck, Vertical Pharmaceuticals, LLC, Zambon Pharmaceuticals, M Somerset Pharmaceuticals Inc., and Wockhardt. The global anti-parkinson drugs market is expected to grow from $8.86 billion in 2021 to $9.56 billion in 2022 at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 7.9%. The growth is mainly due to the companies rearranging their operations and recovering from the COVID-19 impact, which had earlier led to restrictive containment measures involving social distancing, remote working, and the closure of commercial activities that resulted in operational challenges. The market is expected to reach $12.25 billion in 2026 at a CAGR of 6.4%. The anti-Parkinson drugs market consists of sales of drugs used for treating Parkinson’s disease (PD), generated by the establishments that manufacture these drugs.Parkinson’s disease is a neurodegenerative disorder that affects predominately dopaminergic neurons in a specific area of the brain named substantia nigra and disturbs the movement of the body. People suffering from PD may experience tremor, bradykinesia, limb rigidity, gait, and balance problems. The main class of anti-Parkinson drugs are levodopa/carbidopa, dopamine receptor agonists, monoamine oxidase type b (MAO-b) inhibitors, catechol-o-methyltransferase (COMT)-inhibitors, anticholinergics and other drugs.catechol-O-methyltransferase (COMT) inhibitors are a class of drugs used to treat Parkinson’s disease symptoms in conjunction with carbidopa-levodopa therapy. The main types of fertility drugs are prescription fertility drugs and over-the-counter fertility drugs. The drugs are administered through oral, injection, and transdermal that are distributed through hospital pharmacies, retail pharmacies and online pharmacies. North America was the largest region in the anti-Parkinson drugs market in 2021.Middle East is expected to be the fargest growing region in the forecast period. The regions covered in this report are Asia-Pacific, Western Europe, Eastern Europe, North America, South America, Middle East and Africa. The increasing geriatric population and surging cases of Parkinson’s disease (PD) are projected to drive the demand for the anti-Parkinson drugs market.PD commonly occurs in people over the age of 60 years. According to the United Nations Department of Economic and Social Affairs, one in 11 people in the world was over the age of 65 in 2019 and this number is expected to increase to one in six people by the end of 2050.Furthermore, according to the Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research’s statistics published in June 2019, over 1 million Americans live with PD. Degeneration of neurons in the geriatric population and the surge in cases of Parkinson’s disease is therefore driving the market growth. Increasing investments by governments and companies for Parkinson’s disease drug R&D is a major trend in the anti-Parkinson drugs market.For instance, according to the report published by the Parkinson’s Foundation, the foundation awarded $6 million to Parkinson’s disease (PD) research. In January 2019, Parkinson’s UK Research and Support charity in the United Kingdom announced a research investment of $1.9 million (£1.5 million) into its drug discovery program to develop novel gene transcription modulators for Parkinson’s disease. Hence, increasing investments in Parkinson’s drug development are expected to drive the anti-Parkinson’s drugs market. The high cost of Parkinson’s disease treatment is anticipated to limit the growth of anti-Parkinson’s drugs market over the forecast period.According to the Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research’s statistics published in June 2019, the economic burden of Parkinson’s disease on patients, families, and the federal governments is increasing. In the United States, the overall cost of Parkinson’s disease to individuals, families, and government is $51.9 billion annually, with $25.4 billion on direct medical costs (including hospitalization and medication). Thus, the high cost of Parkinson’s disease treatment is expected to impact the anti-Parkinson drugs market. In June 2019, AbbVie Inc., a global research-driven biopharmaceutical company, announced the acquisition of Allergan plc, a Dublin-based pharmaceutical company, for an amount of $63 billion. With Allergan’s diversified product portfolio, AbbVie expected to strengthen the company’s position in international biopharmaceutical markets. AbbVie Inc. invested in neuroscience, multiple sclerosis, Alzheimer’s disease, and investigating potential disease for Parkinson’s disease.
