Alzheimer’s Therapeutics Market Research, 2031

The global Alzheimer’s therapeutics market size was valued at $6.1 billion in 2021, and is projected to reach $13 billion by 2031, growing at a CAGR of 8.1% from 2022 to 2031.

Alzheimer's disease is a neurological disorder that causes the brain to shrink (atrophy) and brain cells to die. It is the most common cause of dementia that leads to continuous decline in thinking, behavioral and social skills that affects the ability of a person to function independently. The early signs of the disease include forgetting recent events or conversations. A person with Alzheimer's will develop severe memory impairment and lose the ability to carry out everyday tasks as the disease progresses.

Alzheimer’s Therapeutics Market

Growth of the global Alzheimer’s therapeutics market size is majorly driven by rise in prevalence of Alzheimer’s disease across both developed and emerging countries. In addition, the growth in occurrence of consciousness of the disease across the world and few of the aspects such as increase in number of diagnosed patients has upsurged the need to develop therapeutics for Alzheimer’s disease. Furthermore, the availability of drugs such as Aricept, Exelon, Memantine, and Razadyne for the treatment of Alzheimer’s disease drives the growth of the market. Moreover, as per the article published by NCBI 2019, around 121,499 deaths were recorded from Alzheimer’s disease in the U.S.  The rise in number of cases of Alzheimer’s disease, thus lead to rise in demand for therapeutics which significantly drives the Alzheimer's therapeutics market growth.

In addition, for instance, in June 2022, Genetech which is a member of Roche Group collaborating with Banner Alzheimer’s Institute, the University of Antioquia in Colombia announced the results from Alzheimer’s Prevention Initiative known as the Autosomal Dominant Alzheimer’s Disease Colombia Trail. The study evaluated the potential usage of Crenezumab to prevent Alzheimer’s disease. Thus, constant focus of market players to adopt growth strategies to launch new drugs is expected to boost the market growth. In addition, according to Pan American Health Organization, data published in 2020, around 8.2 million people lived with central nervous system disorder which causes disability; out of which 3.1 million were men, and 5.1 million were women. The increase in number of central nervous system disorders in the near future is hence anticipated to augment the growth of the Alzheimer’s therapeutics market. Furthermore, in July 2019, UCB announced license agreement with Roche and Genetech for the development of UCB0107 to treat Alzheimer’s disease. This patient centric development approach by key players views toward the unmet needs for an effective anti-Tau antibody in the treatment of Alzheimer’s disease which drives the market growth.

The Alzheimer’s therapeutics market has shown significant growth due to the advancements in treatment, and drug discovery techniques, over the years. Moreover, increase in demand for effective treatment of Alzheimer’s disease and therapeutic options encourages major pharmaceutical companies to invest in R&D, thus creating future growth opportunities. In addition, rise in awareness regarding treatment of Alzheimer’s disease boosts the growth of the global Alzheimer’s therapeutics market. Furthermore, presence of strong pipeline drugs is one of the factors which is projected to offer huge growth opportunities in the future.
