Owing to the presence of various big and small players, the market scenario is anticipated to be highly consolidated. The competition in the global myasthenia gravis market seems to be quite tough. Several players account for small shares in market. Avadel Pharmaceuticals plc, Alexion Pharmaceutical Inc., CSL Behring, Baxter International Inc., Grifols S.A., Shire plc, Valeant Pharmaceuticals International Inc., F. Hoffmann-La Roche AG, Novartis AG, and Takeda Pharmaceutical Company Limited are some of the key players in the market, contributing in its overall development. These firms are indulging into extensive research and development activities for efficient therapeutics for myasthenia gravis illness. This is among the key strategy taken up by the players leading the global gravis market. Moreover, clinical trials are being carried so as to bring some cost-effective therapeutics for the people in order to expand and improve their market position.

According to a research report by Transparency Market Research (TMR), the global myasthenia gravis market is expected to expand at a steady CAGR of 10.1% within the forecast period from 2017 to 2025. In 2016, the market was valued around worth of US$975.1 mn. This figure is anticipated to reach near about worth of US$2,313.1 mn by 2025 end. Based on treatment type, the market is divided into monoclonal antibodies, segments include cholinesterase inhibitors, and chronic Immunomodulators. Geographically, North America region dominates the global myasthenia gravis. As per the statistics of Center for Disease Control & Prevention, the rise in cases of myasthenia gravis is expected to go from 14 to 20 per 100,000 population in the United States.

Possibility of Bad Impact of Life Quality to Fuel Demand in Myasthenia Gravis Market

The rising cases of myasthenia gravis that can affect life quality is principally driving the myasthenia gravis market. Myasthenia gravis is a disorder with immune system and neuromuscular issue that causes weakness in muscle. The condition is described by the weakness and fatigability of skeletal muscles, wherein it keeps on increasing with time. Muscles which are normally affected are the ones that are responsible for breathing and swallowing, eyelids, eye movement, and shoulder and facial muscles. The condition influences muscles that a person can control voluntarily. The weakness of muscles declines with movement and enhances with rest.

In myasthenia gravis, the muscle cells experience issues to contract and react to nerve impulses which brings about weakness of muscles.

Urge to Prevent Life Quality Leads to Increased Demand for Myasthenia Gravis

The rise in research and development activities is expected to surge the demand in global myasthenia gravis market. Myasthenia gravis is caused because of a decrease in the quantity of postsynaptic acetylcholine receptors at neuromuscular joints. As a result, it leads to decrease in size of neuromuscular end-plate to impart the nerve signal. In an ordinary state, acetylcholine is discharged presynaptically so as to boost resultant in depolarization that shows up as muscle activity. Then again, in myasthenia gravis, the quantity of dynamic postsynaptic receptors might be lacking to trigger a capability of muscle activity. Further, with continuous stimulation, the decrease in release of acetylcholine connects with fatigability.

This analysis is based on a recent market research report by Transparency Market Research, titled, “Myasthenia Gravis Market (Treatment- Drug Treatment (Cholinesterase Inhibitors, Monoclonal Antibodies, and Chronic Immunomodulators) and Rapid Immunotherapies (Plasmapheresis, Intravenous Immunoglobulin (IVlg), and Thymectomy)) - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends, and Forecast 2017 – 2025.”
