Global Myasthenia Gravis Market to Reach US$ 2.4 Bn by 2027; Increase in Prevalence of Autoimmune Disorder to Drive Global Myasthenia Gravis Market: Transparency Market Research

Pharmaceutical |

Transparency Market Research (TMR) has published a new report titled, ‘Myasthenia Gravis Market - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends, and Forecast, 2019–2027’. According to the report, the global myasthenia gravis market was valued at US$ 1.2 Bn in 2018 and is projected to expand at a CAGR of 8.0% from 2019 to 2027.


  • Myasthenia gravis is a disorder that cause the weakness of skeletal muscles that body uses for movement. In myasthenia gravis, the immune system disrupts the transmission of nerve impulses to muscles by producing antibodies that binds to proteins important for nerve signal transmission. Antibodies normally bind to specific foreign particles and germs, marking them for destruction, but the antibody in myasthenia gravis attacks a normal human protein. In most affected individuals, the antibody targets a protein called acetylcholine receptor (AChR); in others, the antibodies attack a related protein called muscle-specific kinase (MuSK). In both cases, the abnormal antibodies lead to a reduction of available AChR
  • The myasthenia gravis market is currently having a great prosperity owing to rising focus on research and development. Thus, the several drugs are in pipeline under clinical development phases which will get approved in the near future providing targeted treatment options in the management of myasthenia gravis. Rapidly rising population with myasthenia gravis in emerging countries and serving the untapped geriatric population with autoimmune disease creates lucrative opportunity in the myasthenia gravis market
  • North America dominate the global myasthenia gravis market in 2018 and the trend is anticipated to continue during the forecast period. Well established healthcare infrastructure, increase in drug development and availability of a wide array of treatment options to individuals suffering from myasthenia gravis are the factors anticipated to drive the growth of myasthenia gravis market.
  • Asia Pacific is likely to be a highly lucrative market for the myasthenia gravis market and it is expected to expand at a high CAGR during the forecast period. Vast patient pool, increasing healthcare expenditure and demand for newer advanced therapies are key factors likely to boost myasthenia gravis market in Asia Pacific. Moreover, rising awareness and growing economic is leading to propel the growth of myasthenia gravis treatment market

Strong Pipeline to Drive Global Myasthenia Gravis Market

  • Around 80 to 100 types of autoimmune diseases have been identified; prevalence of most of these is increasing across the world.

  • According to the American Autoimmune Related Diseases Association (AARDA), currently, 50 million people in the U.S. are living with autoimmune diseases.
  • Myasthenia gravis (MG) is an autoimmune neuromuscular disorder that affects voluntary muscles. This has led to increase in demand for the advanced therapies and thereby number of industry players are engaged in developing new products. Besides, increasing government funded research activities for drug development is expected to boost the growth of global myasthenia gravis market.
  • The development of new therapeutic targets to treat myasthenia gravis has opened a promising avenue for future growth of myasthenia gravis market. For instance, in October 2017, Alexion Pharmaceuticals, Inc. received the FDA approval for use of Solaris in the treatment of generalized myasthenia gravis
