Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis Treatment Market Research, 2032

The global amyotrophic lateral sclerosis treatment market size was valued at $662.3 million in 2022, and is projected to reach $1,038.94 million by 2032, growing at a CAGR of 4.6% from 2023 to 2032. Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) is a devastating disease that affects nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord, leading to muscle weakness and eventually paralysis. The symptoms of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) vary from person to person but typically include muscle weakness, stiffness, twitching, difficulty speaking, swallowing, and breathing, and eventually, complete paralysis. The disease progresses at different rates for different people, with some people living for many years with relatively mild symptoms and others experiencing rapid disease progression. There are two main types of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis include sporadic ALS and familial ALS. There are two FDA-approved drugs for the treatment of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), which are Riluzole and Edaravone.

Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis Treatment Market

“The amyotrophic lateral sclerosis market was decreased during the lockdown period owing to decrease in demand for ALS drugs. In addition, many clinical trials for amyotrophic lateral sclerosis drugs had delayed or postponed. This resulted in a slowdown in the development of new drugs, which ultimately negatively impacted the growth of the market.”  

Market Dynamics 

Rise in prevalence of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis led to increase in the demand for effective treatments and therapies. For instance, according to an article, ‘Estimated Prevalence and Incidence of Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis and SOD1 and C9orf72 Genetic Variants’ published by National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI), the ALS prevalence and incidence were 6.22 and 2.31 for Europe. Thus, increase in prevalence of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis led to increase in demand for drugs to treat the disease and further drive the amyotrophic lateral sclerosis treatment market growth.  

The growth of the amyotrophic lateral sclerosis treatment market size is expected to be driven by the high potential in untapped emerging markets, due to availability of improved healthcare expenditure, increase in unmet healthcare needs, rise in prevalence of neu, and surge in demand for ALS drugs such as Riluzole.  

In addition, increase in awareness among patients about importance of early diagnosis and treatment of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis drives the demand for amyotrophic lateral sclerosis drugs. Rise in product approvals for amyotrophic lateral sclerosis drugs by various key players across the globe is set to affect the market growth positively. For instance, in September 2022, Amylyx Pharmaceuticals, Inc. announced that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved RELYVRIO (sodium phenylbutyrate and taurursodiol) for the treatment of adults with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS).  

The demand for amyotrophic lateral sclerosis is not only limited to developed countries but is also being witnessed in developing countries, such as China, Brazil, and India, which fuel the growth of the amyotrophic lateral sclerosis treatment market share. Factors such as rise in adoption of ALS drugs and increase in awareness toward amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, further drive the growth of the market. 

ALS can be a challenging disease to diagnose, as its symptoms are similar to those of other neurological disorders. The diagnostic process for ALS involves a combination of physical examinations, medical history reviews, and diagnostic tests. Delays in receiving an accurate diagnosis. This delay can impact the effectiveness of treatment and limit the growth of the amyotrophic lateral sclerosis treatment market share. In addition, limited treatment options may limit the growth of the ALS treatment market. Side effects of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis drugs such as diarrhea, nausea, and upper respiratory infection further restrain the market growth. 

Furthermore, rise in awareness about ALS may help to increase early diagnosis and treatment. Increased awareness also helps to attract investment in ALS R&D which further supports the market growth. Many government and non-government organizations around the world work toward the treatment and management of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis. Governments have provided funding for research into the causes and treatment of ALS. This funding has supported basic and clinical research to better understand the disease and develop new therapies which support the market growth.  

The outbreak of COVID-19 has disrupted workflows in the healthcare sector around the world. The disease has forced a number of industries to shut their doors temporarily, including several sub-domains of health care. The global amyotrophic lateral sclerosis treatment market experienced a decline in 2020 due to global economic recession led by COVID-19. In addition, many hospitals and clinics focused on treating COVID-19 patients, there has been a delay in the diagnosis and treatment of other conditions, including ALS. Patients may be hesitant to seek medical attention during the pandemic or may have difficulty accessing healthcare due to social distancing measures, resulting in delayed diagnosis and treatment which hamper the market growth. Furthermore, many clinical trials for ALS treatments had been disrupted or delayed due to the pandemic. This delays the development of new treatments and slows progress in the field. 

However, there is a recovery of the market after the pandemic and stable growth for amyotrophic lateral sclerosis treatment market in the coming future. This is attributed to the increase in adoption of drugs for the treatment of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis and rise in clinical trials for amyotrophic lateral sclerosis.
