Global Market Size, Forecast, and Trend Highlights Over 2024-2036

Propionic Acidemia Market size is expected to reach USD 45 Billion by the end of 2036, growing at a CAGR of 4% during the forecast period i.e., 2024-2036. In the year 2023, industry size of propionic acidemia was USD 2 Billion. One important factor that will help the market to grow over the forecast period is an increase in prevalence of propionic acidemia. For instance, according to the article published in NCBI Propionic acidemia affects about 1 in 100,000 people in the United States. In some populations, such as Greenland's Inuit population and certain amish communities in Saudi Arabia, the condition seems to be more common. Moreover, propionic acidemia market growth will also be driven by an increasing number of treatment options and a rise in the incidence of ketotic hyperglycaemia and others.

The efficacy and patient compliance of the treatment is enhanced by technological advances in drug delivery systems and formulation. In addition, improved access to healthcare for patients with uncommon diseases such as propionic acidemia is facilitated by the growing use of telemedicine and Digital Health Platforms.

Propionic Acidemia Sector: Growth Drivers and Challenges

Growth Drivers

  • Growing Awareness About Propionic Acidemia – Growing public awareness campaigns and initiatives are raising awareness of PA globally, leading to earlier diagnosis and treatment. Increased media coverage and patient advocacy groups are contributing the destigmatization and increasing public understanding of the conditions.
  • Increasing Demand for Personalized Medicine – The rise of personalized medicine is driving the development of targeted therapies tailored to individual patient needs and genetic variations. This personalized approach holds promise for improved treatment efficacy and reduced side effects in PA patients.


  • High Cost of Treatment – Carnitine supplements a mainstay of PA treatment can cost thousands of dollars per month. Newer therapies such as gene therapy and enzyme replacement therapy are expected to be even more expensive, creating affordability issues for many families.
  • Limited Access to Healthcare is anticipated to hamper the propionic acidemia market growth in the upcoming period.
  • Limited Research and Development is Expected to Hinder the market expansion in the projected period.

Propionic Acidemia Segmentation

Drug Class (L-Carnitine, Antibiotics)

In terms of drug class, L-carnitine segment is estimated to hold 70% share of the global propionic acidemia market by 2036. L-carnitine is a chemical that's produced in the human brain, liver and kidneys. It's helping the body to make energy out of fat. L-carnitine is a vital element for the health of the heart and brain, muscle activity as well as many different processes in the body. The body is capable of converting L-carnitine into other chemicals called acetylcarnitine, and propionyl. In three patients with Propionic Acidemia and in 3 standard controls, L-Carnitine significantly increased the formation and excretion of short chain acylcarnitine. Acylcarnitine has been found to be propionylcarnitine in patients with proionic acidemia by the use of rapid atom bombardment mass spectrometry and a correlation scan at constant magnet-to-electric field ratio. Mostly acetylcarnitine was absorbed by the normal children.

Distribution Channel (Hospital Pharmacies, Retail Pharmacies, Online Pharmacies)

Based on distribution channel, the retail pharmacy segment is expected to hold a notable share of the global propionic acidemia market by 2036. When patients are discharged from hospital, retail pharmacies play an important role in supplying them with medicinal products. Retail pharmacies offer convenient access to essential medications such as carnitine supplements, vitamins and antibiotics for managing PA symptoms. This can be particularly beneficial for patients in remote areas or those who struggle with transportation to specialized clinics. Retail chains are the biggest and most predominant of the four drug store sorts, speaking to a third of stores and around a third of medicine incomes in 2021.
