Overview of the global Alzheimer’s drugs market
Alzheimer’s disease is classified as a progressive neurological disease that affects the functioning of the brain, ultimately leading to neuron loss. The combined effects of this neurological degradation are: the loss of reasoning abilities and memory.
Currently, the market offers no definitive treatment to prevent or cure Alzheimer’s disease – the only result currently offered by Alzheimer’s drugs is to curtail the progression of the disease. Patients of Alzheimer’s are usually prescribed neurotransmitters such as memantine and cholinesterase inhibitors. These drugs work by slowing down the progression of Alzheimer’s disease. They also provide temporary relief from common Alzheimer’s symptoms such as anxiety, depression, and insomnia, as well as agitation in some instances.
A method to provide early diagnosis of Alzheimer’s is not yet available - but there is a pressing demand on market players to offer techniques that enable the early detection of Alzheimer’s.
The estimates of this report show that the global Alzheimer’s drugs market will show sluggish growth over the forecast period. The growth will mainly slow down owing to a lack of techniques for diagnosing or treating Alzheimer’s disease.
Until now, the most dominant geographical region in the Alzheimer’s drugs market was North America, as it occupied 50% of market shares. While it will continue to hold its leading position, it will be overtaken – in terms of growth rate – by emerging economies such as Russia, India, China, and Australia as these regions experience high unmet medical needs.
The growing geriatric population is yet another reason that will impel growth in the global Alzheimer’s drugs market, making it imperative for players to launch new drugs and treatments. Many market players are now focusing on research and development centric activities, which could potentially result in breakthroughs. At the same time, the global Alzheimer’s drugs market will have to contend with challenges such as drug patent expiry.
