Recent Trends and Developments in the Market

In March 2019, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in the United States approved Mavenclad, a cladribine drug which is in the form of oral tablets, for adults with relapsing-remitting multiple sclerosis and for adults with active secondary-progressive multiple sclerosis. However, it is not considered to be a first-line of treatment for multiple sclerosis due to its safety issues.

Multiple Sclerosis Drugs and Treatment Overview

Multiple sclerosis is a chronic disorder affecting the central nervous system (CNS) of a person, including the brain and spine. It is an autoimmune disease in which the body’s immune system starts attacking the protective myelin sheath covering the nervous tissue. If preventive measures are not taken on a timely basis, this eventually damages the nerves permanently, resulting in disruption of the communication between the brain and other body parts, for instance, the optic nerves in eyes. Multiple sclerosis has a higher chance of occurring among women as compared to men. The main symptoms caused by this disorder include: weakening of muscles, fatigue, defective vision, poor bladder control and difficulty in walking. The causes of multiple sclerosis include environmental factors. Some possible risk factors for this disorder include smoking, obesity and vitamin D deficiency. For instance, studies report that people with vitamin D deficiency, especially among those residing away from the equator, might have increased chances of this disease, although the exact cause is still unknown.

Market Size and Forecast

According to a journal published by the Lancet Neurology, there were 2,221,188 cases of multiple sclerosis prevalent around the world in 2016. The age-standardized prevalence of this disorder was higher than 120 cases per 100,000 people in North America. On the other hand, it was moderate in some European countries with 60 to 120 cases per 100,000 population and lowest in North Africa, Middle East and Latin America with less than 60 cases per 100,000 people in every region. The multiple sclerosis drugs and treatment market is anticipated to record a CAGR of around 6% over the forecast period, i.e., 2019-2027. The market is segmented by drug, by route of administration, by distribution channel and by region. Based on route of administration, the market is bifurcated into oral and injection routes, out of which, the injection segment is anticipated to hold the largest share in the multiple sclerosis drugs and treatment market on account of higher efficacy of drugs administered through the intravenous route along with a better drug delivery. On the other hand, the market is segmented by drug into interferons, immunomodulators and immunosuppressants, out of which, the immunomodulators segment is estimated to hold a significantly large share in the market as a result of new treatment methods available involving immunomodulatory drugs and a higher demand for these drugs.
