PharmaPoint: Parkinson’s Disease - US Drug Forecast and Market Analysis to 2022
Parkinson’s disease is a progressive condition that is characterized by bradykinesia, muscular rigidity, tremor, and postural instability. As the second most common neurodegenerative disorder, Parkinson’s disease may affect individuals of any age but prevalence is increased with age and it is most common in the elderly. Dopaminergic therapies have been fairly effective in treating bradykinesia, but several unmet needs remain. Some needs will be met during the forecast period from 2012-2022, while others, such as the need for disease-modifying drugs, will remain. GlobalData expects that advancements will be made in levodopa administration and that four new molecular entities will be introduced to the market by 2022, these factors along with increased patient numbers from an aging population will drive the market during the forecast period.
This market is expected to grow faster than any other market, including the 5EU, due in part to the introduction of two brands already in use in the 5EU, Neupro and Duodopa, launched in the US at the beginning of the forecast in 2012 and 2014, respectively. Other factors responsible for growth in this market are an aging population that contributes to an increased prevalence of Parkinson’s disease in the US and the launch of six new pipeline agents (in addition to Duodopa and Neupro).
