Of these, the recombinant coagulation factor concentrates are poised to lead the global market as the segment estimated to acquire a share of 46.9% by the end of 2024. The growing preference for recombinant factor therapies due to the low risk of blood-related infections is expected to fuel the growth of this segment.

Investments in Developing Breakthrough Products to Augment Demand for Drugs
“The global hemophilia treatment drugs market is on the cusp of a major revolution as a large number of new drugs are expected to create a wave of change,” states the lead author of this research report. These drugs come with a promise of long-lasting clotting factors. For instance, “emicizumab” being developed by Roche has shown possibility of prophylactic efficiency in people who suffer from severe Hemophilia A. The growing focus on prophylaxis treatment to manage bleeding episodes by regularly infusing clotting factor concentrates is expected to propel the overall market. Demand for this type of treatment is expected to spike as the regular infusion of clotting factors can transform severe hemophilia to moderate hemophilia over time.
The market is also thriving due to the increasing investments in developing breakthrough products. For instance, in July 2016, Pfizer and Spark Therapeutics received FDA approval for “SPK-9001”, a drug that is being tested for being a one-time therapy for treating Hemophilia B. Furthermore, incentives by the FDA for orphan drugs such as tax credits, market exclusivity, and grants are expected to propel the market in the positive direction in the coming years as well.
Low Rate of Diagnosis Restrains Sale of Drugs
The biggest challenge in the global hemophilia treatment drugs market is the low rate of diagnosis amongst patients. Though genetic testing is available for this disease, several patients remain unaware of it due to lack of awareness, especially in the remote regions of the world. The market is also being restrained due to the high cost of drugs and even costlier rate of therapy to treat the disease.
