EpiCast Report: Non-Alcoholic Steatohepatitis - Epidemiology Forecast to 2025
Non-alcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH) is a common, often clinically silent liver disease characterized by the presence of steatosis (fatty liver), in addition to liver inflammation and damage. Unlike alcoholic liver disease, NASH occurs in those who drink little or no alcohol. NASH usually presents with few or no symptoms, and most people affected with the disease feel healthy and are unaware they have a problem.
GlobalData epidemiologists forecast that the total prevalent cases of NASH in the 7MM will grow by 0.65% per year over the next 10 years, from 60,325,647 cases in 2015, to 64,273,379 cases in 2025. In the 7MM, the US will have the highest number of total prevalent cases throughout the forecast period, accounting for 56.85% of all total prevalent cases in the 7MM in 2015. When analyzing the individual markets, more than 85.00% of the total prevalent cases of NASH occurred in ages 20 years and older and more cases occured in men compared with women. GlobalData epidemiologists forecast that the 7MM will see an increase in the diagnosed prevalent cases of NASH from 16,952,459 cases in 2015 to 31,000,983 cases in 2025, at the rate of 8.29%. Diagnosed prevalent cases are forecast to increase faster than total prevalent cases due to expected increase in diagnosis rate, as indicated by primary research.
GlobalData epidemiologists utilized primary research and comprehensive, country-specific data from peer-reviewed journal articles when available, to arrive at a meaningful, in-depth analysis and forecast for the total and diagnosed prevalent cases of NASH. Since obesity is a major risk factor for NASH, the prevalence trend in obesity was used to determine the prevalence trend in NASH across all age- and sex-specific segmentations, thereby providing granularity to the forecast analysis. The forecast is further strengthened by the use of a biopsy-proven total prevalence study to estimate the total prevalence of NASH in the 7MM, excluding Japan, as liver biopsies are regarded as the gold-standard diagnostic method for NASH. In Japan, clinically relevant noninvasive diagnostic indices were combined to estimate the total prevalence in Japan. Finally, the forecast methodology was consistent across all markets to allow for meaningful global comparisons of the total and diagnosed prevalent cases of NASH.
The Non-Alcoholic Steatohepatitis (NASH) EpiCast Report provides an overview of the risk factors and global trends of NASH in the 7MM (US, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, UK, and Japan). It includes a 10-year epidemiological forecast for the total prevalent cases (both diagnosed and undiagnosed) of NASH segmented by age and sex. It also includes a 10-year epidemiological forecast for the diagnosed prevalent cases of NASH, which are further segmented by comorbid disorders, including obesity, diabetes mellitus type 2 (T2D), hyperlipidemia, and hypertension in these markets.
The NASH epidemiology report is written and developed by Masters- and PhD-level epidemiologists.
The EpiCast Report is in-depth, high quality, transparent and market-driven, providing expert analysis of disease trends in the 7MM.
