Neurotherapeutic Drugs Market: Overview

Neurological disorders are referred to as the change in the functioning of nervous system. Etiology of neurological disorder includes structural or biochemical change in the activity of brain, spinal cord and other nerves. Neurological disorders can be segmented primarily into three categories that include peripheral nervous system disorders (PNS) disorder, autonomous nervous system (ANS) disorder and central nervous system (CNS) disorders. Disorders those are associated with nerve and ganglia outside the brain and spinal cord are categorized as peripheral nervous system disorder. Likewise, disorder associated with brain and spinal cords are included in central nervous system disorders. Visceral fibers and efferent fibers are found in autonomic nervous system which acts as a control system for the CNS and PNS.  

Disorders in the above mentioned fiber are termed as autonomous nervous system disorder. Most of the neurologic disorders involve progressive decline in mental and physical capabilities that disturbs patient’s life. This change in activity of brain can be witnessed due to brain injury, changing lifestyle, genetic disorders, congenital health problems and other traumas. Patients suffering from these neurological disorders witnessed varied symptoms such as muscle weakness, paralysis, poor condition, pain and other disorders. Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, Huntington’s disease, neurological cancers, epilepsy and others traumas are the common neurological disorder.

Hence, neurotherapeutic drugs are prescribed for the management of such anxiety causing disorders. Few of the neurological therapeutic products that are in development phase includes MEM 3454, MKC-231, NS2330, 189254, Phosiphen, IL-13-PE38, 737004, 234551, CEP 1347, KW-6002, SLV308, MT 100, MT 300 and BIBN4096 BS.

Neurotherapeutic Drugs Market: Trends and Drivers

An increase in the geriatric population base worldwide, rising investments in R&D, and a deeper understanding of neurologic diseases are aiding the growth of the neurotherapeutic drugs market globally. The aged are more prone to brain disorders – this thus makes the growing geriatric population a high-impact driver for the demand for and sales of neurotherapeutic drugs worldwide. The World Health Organization has reported that by 2020, about 14.1% of the global population will suffer from some form of neurologic disorder. This will impel the production of neurotherapeutic drugs.

Some of the neurological drugs that occupy the lion’s share of the neurotherapeutic drugs market include Alzheimer’s, peripheral nerve disorders and neurological cancers.  Moreover, a large number of drugs are also available in the market for the treatment of the other neurological conditions such as stroke, dementia, migraine, Huntington’s disease, movement disorders, epilepsy and others.
