Thyroid Gland Disorder Treatment Market Overview:

Thyroid Gland Disorder Treatment Market is an endocrine gland that stimulates hormones, which help regulate the metabolism of the body. When the thyroid gland does not produce enough thyroid hormones (hypothyroidism) or too much hormone (hyperthyroidism), the metabolism and functioning of the body is disrupted. The lack of iodine in the body is a major factor that leads to thyroid disorder. It has been observed that more than 2 billion people are estimated to be at the risk of iodine deficiency worldwide, among which the developing countries have the highest number of undiagnosed patients. The global thyroid gland disorder market was valued at $2,057 million in 2017, and is estimated to reach $2,771 million by 2025 at a CAGR of 3.8% from 2018 to 2025.

The major factors that drive the growth of the market include increase in the incidence of thyroid gland disorder, rise in the number of disease awareness programs especially in the developing countries, and development of effective combination drug therapies to treat thyroid gland disorder. However, side effects of the drugs and stringent government regulations hamper the market growth. Moreover, availability of large pool of undiagnosed patients due to asymptomatic nature of thyroid disorders help open new avenues for the market growth during the forecast period.

Disease type segment review

Based on the disease type, the market is bifurcated into hypothyroidism and hyperthyroidism. The hypothyroidism segment dominates the market, owing to the high prevalence of iodine deficiency population worldwide, and is the most commonly occurring thyroid disorder.

Analyst Review

Thyroid hormones play an important role in the growth, reproduction, neuronal development, and regulation of energy metabolism. Hypothyroidism and hyperthyroidism caused due to lack or overproduction of thyroid hormone can cause potentially devastating health consequences. Increase in the incidence of thyroid gland disorder and rise in the number of disease awareness programs especially in the developing countries majorly drive the growth of the thyroid gland disorder treatment market.

Patients require medication to either boost the production of thyroid hormones or block the over production of thyroid hormones. Levothyroxine accounts for the largest market share among all these drug types, mainly due to the availability of these drugs in various brand forms. In addition, these drugs can easily be absorbed by the patient and help regulate thyroid hormone.

The use of thyroid gland disorder treatment is highest in North America, particularly in the U.S., owing to highest prevalence rate for thyroid disorders, large number of diagnosed patients as compared to other regions, and favorable reimbursement policies. Although the use of thyroid gland disorder treatment in Asia-Pacific and LAMEA is low, the adoption rate is expected to increase due to the increase in awareness about thyroid conditions and the availability of large number of undiagnosed patients in populace countries such as India and China.
