Introduction to Polycystic Ovary Syndrome

Polycystic ovary syndrome is a hormonal condition in women characterized by the formation of multiple cysts in the ovaries. PCOS particularly occurs among women who are of the reproductive age. These cysts might obstruct the process of ovulation and lead to infertility among the affected women. Currently, no specific drug for the treatment of PCOS is available in the market. However, various drugs that control the hormones in the body can be used in order to restrict any further cyst growths in the ovary.

Market Size and Forecast

The polycystic ovary syndrome treatment market is anticipated to record a CAGR of around 5% over the forecast period, i.e., 2019-2027. The market is segmented by drugs, by surgery, by distribution channel and by region, out of which, the drugs segment is further segmented into oral contraceptives, insulin-sensitizing drugs, antidepressants, anti-androgen drugs and others. Based on drugs, the insulin-sensitizing drugs is anticipated to hold the largest share in the polycystic ovary syndrome treatment market on account of higher demand of anti-diabetic drugs that decrease the hormone levels, thereby controlling PCOS as well as diabetes. Since androgens are secreted in excess in this disorder, the levels of insulin in the body are affected which eventually leads to diabetes. Further, insulin-sensitizing drugs prevent the onset of diabetes that might result from PCOS which is further estimated to raise the demand for this segment. The oral contraceptives segment is estimated to grow at the highest rate as a result of easy availability of these medications at online and offline pharmacies. Contraceptives are used in order to treat the common symptoms of PCOS such as to provide relief from menstrual pain and treat irregular menstrual cycles, which is further anticipated to raise the demand for this segment in the upcoming years.

Reducing the Risk of Disorders Linked with PCOS to Boost the Market Growth

PCOS leads to the development of various disorders including diabetes, heart diseases and several other hormone related disorders. The serious health disorders linked with polycystic ovary syndrome result in a greater requirement for the elimination of this disorder, which is estimated to significantly propel the market growth.


Lack of Availability of Proper Medication to Hamper the Market Growth

As there is no known cause of polycystic ovary syndrome, the drugs available for the treatment are not highly accurate. Moreover, the drugs change the hormone levels in the body which further increases the side effects including body weight gain or loss, irregular menstruation, bloating and others. These factors are estimated to hinder the growth of PCOS treatment market over the forecast period.
