As per Fortune Business Insights, the North America orphan drugs market was worth US$ 67,136.0 Mn in 2017 and will continue to rise at a steady pace until 2025. This is mainly ascribable to the rising awareness among people regarding the use of novel drugs. In addition to this, North America is expected to offer attractive growth opportunities on the back of recent FDA approvals on the development of orphan drugs. Governments in North America are increasingly spending on the research and development (R&D) of orphan drugs and technologies.
This is further helping the orphan drugs market to grow impressively in this region. Asia Pacific, on the other hand, is anticipated to show a higher rate of growth on account of rising prevalence of rare diseases such as chronic lymphocytic leukemia. Also, the region is expected to offer lucrative growth opportunities as a result of the rapid expansion of healthcare infrastructure.
Rising Prevalence of Cancer and Related Diseases Fuels Demand for Orphan Drugs
The oncology segment is witnessing considerably high demand on account of the rising number of patients suffering from different types of cancers. This also increases the demand for novel therapeutics, which as per the report will bode well for the global orphan drugs market. According to the National Center for Health Statistics, the U.S. is likely to witness around 1,762,450 new cancer cases in 2019. Spurred by these numbers, the demand for orphan drugs is likely to increase in the coming years. Governments are investing heavily to build a strong framework for supporting drug development, thus offering a significant impetus to the orphan drugs market. Furthermore, the return on investment, with regards to orphan drugs, is expected to be higher than non-orphan drugs, which in turn is increasing the demand for orphan drug therapeutics worldwide.
“People across the world are becoming more aware about the rising prevalence of rare disorders and importance of orphan drugs,” stated a lead analyst at Fortune Business insights. “This, coupled with robust support from EU and FDA to drug development, drives the orphan drugs market,” he added. Several pharma companies are also putting continuous efforts to develop orphan drugs, thus improving creating scope for generating more revenue in the overall global market for orphan drugs.
Treatment and Medications Associated with Rare Diseases Are Expensive, Limiting Growth of Orphan Drugs Market
