Several drugs, including monoclonal antibodies and immunosuppressants, are being developed and tested for their efficacy in treating myasthenia gravis. Moreover, the increasing investment in research and development by pharmaceutical companies is expected to drive the myasthenia gravis treatment market opportunity.

The growing awareness about myasthenia gravis among patients and healthcare professionals is also contributing to the rise in demand for effective treatments. As more people become aware of the symptoms and risks associated with myasthenia gravis, they are more likely to seek diagnosis and treatment. In addition, healthcare professionals are also becoming more knowledgeable about the disease and its treatment options, leading to an increased demand for effective treatments.

Moreover, government initiatives to improve healthcare infrastructure and increase awareness about myasthenia gravis are also driving market growth. Many governments around the world are investing in programs to improve diagnosis and treatment of myasthenia gravis, which is expected to further increase the demand for effective treatments.

The growth of the myasthenia gravis treatment market is expected to be driven by emerging markets, due to availability of improved healthcare infrastructure, increase in unmet healthcare needs, rise in prevalence of autoimmune diseases, and surge in demand for novel drugs for management of myasthenia gravis. Furthermore, the healthcare industry in emerging economies is developing at a significant rate, owing to rise in demand for enhanced healthcare services, significant investments by government to improve healthcare infrastructure, and development of the medical tourism industry in emerging countries. 

Various organizations along with government are counselling people regarding the autoimmune diseases. E-commerce (electronic commerce) has become a vital tool for small and large businesses globally, owing to rise in preference of consumers for online shopping over traditional purchasing methods. Various animations through health apps to educate people regarding myasthenia gravis and usage of medications have contributed toward the myasthenia gravis treatment market growth. 

The demand for effective intravenous immunoglobulin (IVIg) and monoclonal antibodies is not only limited to developed countries but is also being witnessed in the developing countries, such as China, Brazil, and India, which fuel the growth of the market. Moreover, increase in promotional activities by manufacturers and growth in awareness for proper treatment medications for myasthenia gravis among the general population is expected to fuel their adoption in the near future.

Drugs such as corticosteroids and immunosuppressants are associated with several side effects, including increased risk of infection, weight gain, mood changes, and gastrointestinal problems, which can impact patient compliance and restrict market growth. 

The outbreak of COVID-19 has disrupted workflows in the healthcare sector around the world. The delay in diagnosis and treatment of myasthenia gravis during the pandemic had a significant impact on patient outcomes. During the pandemic, patients with non-emergency conditions such as myasthenia gravis were often unable to receive timely medical attention. This delay in diagnosis and treatment can lead to disease progression and worsened symptoms, impacting the quality of life of myasthenia gravis patients.

Moreover, the pandemic disrupted the supply chains of drugs and medical devices worldwide, leading to shortages and delays in the delivery of myasthenia gravis treatments. This can impact patient access to treatments, particularly in regions with limited healthcare infrastructure. Additionally, companies operating in the myasthenia gravis treatment market were impacted financially by the pandemic-induced disruptions, with revenue growth being limited due to supply chain issues.

The COVID-19 pandemic also increased the risk of myasthenic crisis, respiratory failure, and permanent pulmonary damage in myasthenia gravis patients due to their suppressed immune systems. This further highlights the need for timely diagnosis and treatment for myasthenia gravis patients, particularly during a pandemic.
