Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy Market (DMD) Insight (2022–2031)
The global Duchenne muscular dystrophy market size was valued at $1,301.44 Million in 2021, and is estimated to reach $2,073.91 Million by 2031, growing at a CAGR of 4.7% from 2022 to 2031.
A genetic condition known as Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD) is characterized by progressive muscle weakness and degradation as a result of changes to a protein called dystrophin that keeps muscle cells intact. DMD typically affects men, though it can occasionally affect women as well. Progressive weakening and loss (atrophy) of both skeletal and cardiac muscle are signs of DMD. Early warning indicators include difficulty in learning to talk and a delay in sitting, standing, or walking. Early childhood is typically when muscle weakness becomes apparent.
Cardiomyopathy or respiratory muscle weakness are the most common causes of death in people in the twenties, and cardiac and orthopedic issues are common. To avoid orthopedic problems, current treatment focuses on glucocorticoid therapy and physical therapy. Most patients start needing a wheelchair around the age of 10 to 12 and require assisted breathing around the age of 20. Most DMD patients with the best care pass away between the ages of 20 and 40 from cardiac and/or respiratory failure.
Duchenne muscular dystrophy is brought on by dystrophin gene mutations (DMD). The dystrophin gene contains 79 exons, and deletion mutations often affect multiple exons—which make up the majority of DMD alterations. Exon skipping is a DMD therapy that was created in response to the discovery of "reverent" fibers in the dystrophic muscle that can vary depending on the precise mutation. Exon skipping therapy is being introduced by a number of major market participants to treat Duchenne muscular dystrophy drives the market growth.
In addition, the rise in the incidence of the Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD) propels the market growth fuels the market growth. Furthermore, drug development has been quite active in recent years, with many research groups focused on the creation of novel medications for the treatment of DMD propels the Duchenne muscular dystrophy market growth.
However, the inflated cost of treatments for Duchenne muscular dystrophy is anticipated to limit the adoption of treatments during the forecast period. Conversely, rising need for better healthcare services, the healthcare sector is expanding significantly in both established and emerging economies. During the forecast period, the market for treatments is anticipated to benefit from rising government spending on the pharmaceutical and biotechnology sectors in developing countries, the development of healthcare infrastructure, and the rising demand for innovative treatments for Duchenne muscular dystrophy
