High Demand for Non-invasive NASH Treatment to Augment Market

Over the past couple of decades, the number of obesity, diabetes, and non-alcoholic fatty liver diseases (NAFLD) cases have increased at a rapid pace. The range of NAFLD extends from steatosis to non-alcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH). The rise in the prevalence of NAFLD has caused a great amount of economic burden on nations worldwide and as per trends, patients suffering from NAFLD-related diseases have emerged as one of the major subset of people requiring liver transplant. One of the major factors that is likely to propel the adoption of NASH biomarker is the high prevalence of NAFLD and the undesirable outcomes. The adoption of conventional techniques to address NAFLD such as biopsy is steadily declining due to limitations, including sampling bias, complications such as pain, bleeding, mortality, and poor acceptability.

The demand for non-invasive techniques to treat NAFLD has witnessed a consistent growth over the past decade. Non-invasive techniques that have gained significant popularity to combat NAFLD include NASH, NAFLD-based fibrosis, and steatosis, among others. The surge in demand for these non-invasive techniques is expected to boost the demand for NASH biomarkers during the forecast period. In recent times, players operating in the global NASH biomarkers are increasingly investigating the algorithms that consist non-imaging and imaging biomarkers to diagnose fibrosis and minimize biopsies in clinical settings. Technological advancements, research and development activities coupled with high prevalence of NAFLD are some of major factors that are likely to drive the expansion of the non-alcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH) biomarkers market during the assessment period. At the back of these factors, the global non-alcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH) biomarkers market is expected to attain a market value of ~US$ 2 Bn by the end of 2027.

Non-alcoholic Steatohepatitis (NASH) Biomarkers Market: Overview

  • The global non-alcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH) biomarkers market was valued at ~US$ 300 Mn in 2018 and is projected to expand at a rapid pace from 2019 to 2027. Rise in NAFLD and NASH conditions; increase in patient pool suffering from obesity and metabolic diseases; rise in geriatric population; growth in Type 2 diabetes and pre-diabetes in adult patients; surge in demand for non-invasive diagnostic techniques; and increase in awareness about NASH condition and innovative diagnosis tools, especially in developing markets, are anticipated to propel the global non-alcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH) biomarkers market. 
  • NASH, also known as non-alcoholic steatohepatitis, is a progressive form of non alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD). NAFLD is a condition in which fat is accumulated in the liver and the continuous fat deposition may cause liver inflammation and liver cell damage. This is termed as NASH condition. Increase in worldwide prevalence of obesity, type 2 diabetes, pre-diabetes, and metabolic diseases are major reasons for increase in prevalence of non-alcoholic steatohepatitis condition. Thus, innovative diagnostic tools are introduced in the market to accurately diagnose the non-alcoholic steatohepatitis condition. Liver biopsy is one of the standard tools for diagnosis of NASH condition. However, due to high cost of this procedure, many companies have introduced biomarkers as a diagnostic tool for NASH patients. Various non-invasive biomarkers are available for detection of the NASH condition, including serum biomarkers, biomarker panels, fibrosis biomarkers, imaging biomarkers, gene biomarkers, oxidative stress biomarkers, and Cytokeratin-18.
