Global Alzheimer’s Disease Drugs Market, Regional Analysis & Forecast, Major Deals & Funding, and Pipeline Drugs Analysis to 2021

Alzheimer’s disease is the most common cause of dementia among older people. It is a devastating condition for those afflicted as well as their family members and caregivers; the situation is only getting worse as the population ages. With the ageing global population, the number of patients suffering from Alzheimer’s disease is predicted to grow during the forecasting period. Alzheimer's treatment is a high risk, high reward market. Drugs currently available in the market have reached maturity; patent of leading drugs have expired. The current unmet needs represent a huge opportunity for pharmaceutical companies which are developing targeted novel therapies.

Global Alzheimer’s Disease Drugs Market and Pipeline Drugs Analysis

  • In 2016, the global market for Alzheimer’s disease drugs was dominated by Namenda, Memary, Aricept and Exelon. The combined market share of these four drugs was over 80% in the year 2016.
  • Ebixa, Razadyne/Reminyl, Rivastach and Nootropil are the other popular drugs in the Alzheimer’s disease market.
  • With the patent expiration of popular drugs the sales of the Alzheimer’s drugs have also declined. However, there are several pipeline drugs like Gantenerumab, Crenezumab and Aducanumab among others which are likely to hit the market during the period 2019 - 2020.
