Acromegaly is a rare hormonal illness, caused due to excess production of growth hormones in the body. The pituitary gland in the brain, secretes growth hormone and in acromegaly, the pituitary gland secretes excessive amounts of growth hormone. It is one of the uncommon diseases, which is mostly diagnosed in middle-aged adults. Acromegaly is treated very effectively in most cases.
The acromegaly treatment market is expected to observe an attainable high CAGR during the forecast period, i.e., 2020-2028. The market is segmented by disease type, treatment, route of administration, distribution channel, and region. Among treatment segmentation, the medication segment is projected to drive the global acromegaly treatment market. Factors such as the efficiency of drugs, non-invasive treatments, lesser side effects than radiation therapies, and strong pipeline portfolio are likely to strengthen the growth of the overall market globally.
The increasing prevalence of hormonal diseases is one of the key factors projected to drive the market growth.
The rising awareness for acromegaly and an increase in the rates of screening globally is expected to fuel the overall market growth in the forecast period.
Progressions in surgery and developing alternatives, such as radiation therapy, medications, and others, are contributing towards the market growth. Developments in medical diagnoses, such as magnetic resonance imaging and the growth hormone suppression test, deliver the most selective means for the testing of acromegaly disorder. Medical advancements such as the development of antagonists (somatostatin analogs, dopamine agonists, and GH receptor antagonists), are the synthetic forms of natural hormones that restrict the creation of growth hormone. This is driving the acromegaly treatment market towards non-invasive treatments, mainly in cases where surgery is not a viable option. CLICK TO DOWNLOAD SAMPLE REPORT
