European Multiple Sclerosis Market in Dire Need of more Treatment Options, Says Frost & Sullivan
Emergence of Innovative Treatment Options to Support Improved Compliance and Enhanced Therapeutic Results
New analysis from Frost & Sullivan, Analysis of the European Multiple Sclerosis Market, finds that the market earned revenues of approximately $3.2 billion in 2010 and estimates this to reach approximately $5.38 billion in 2017, growing at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 7.2 per cent from 2010-2017. The segments covered include: immunosuppressants, immunomodulators and corticosteroids.
“The rising number of people suffering from MS is resulting in higher demand for therapeutics,”
MS is characterised as a chronic disease, commonly diagnosed in patients between 20-50 years of age. It affects more than 2.5 million people across the world, with Europe accounting for nearly 550,000 cases.
Significant research is currently underway to efficiently treat MS. Innovative treatment therapies, including biologics and oral drugs, are favouring market prospects.
“Refined drug delivery technologies, mode of drug delivery (oral or injectable), and several other factors will encourage the use of MS drugs among patients,” adds Deepika. “Novel treatment options will also promote the concept of combination therapies, accelerating market development.”
A key challenge at present is the inaccuracy in disease diagnosis due to the lack of sensitive diagnostic tools. Another issue is the absence of established treatment procedures.
“Non-compliance with MS treatment procedures remains a major challenge,” explains Deepika. “Establishing end-user confidence has become difficult due to unsatisfactory therapeutic results.”
Cumbersome and painful procedures discourage the progress of therapy. Simple advances, like the use of oral drugs instead of injections, will prove beneficial to promoting compliance with therapeutic regimes.
“Awareness raising through public healthcare forums and organisations about new developments and innovative treatment options will contribute towards establishing greater end-user confidence,”
