Muscular Dystrophy Treatment Market 2020 Global Demands with Size, Share Analysis and Industry Forecast to 2026

Muscular dystrophy is a group of genetic diseases, which is characterized by weakness of muscle tissues conditions. This is caused by genetic mutations, which interfere in the production of muscle protein dystrophin that is necessary to build muscles. Muscular dystrophy is a genetic disease, and its symptoms include shortening of muscles and tendons, curvature of spine, weakening of heart muscles leading to cardiac problems, and breathing problem. The most common forms of muscular dystrophies include Duchenne muscular dystrophy, Becker muscular dystrophy, myotonic disease, congenital disease, and Oculopharyngeal muscular dystrophy. The cure for any form of muscular dystrophy is currently unspecified, but the symptoms can be relived through physical therapy, exercise, rehabilitative devices like a powered wheelchair, respiratory care, and surgery.

The common muscular dystrophy types:

  1. Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy (DMD)

Most common form of muscular dystrophy in children are caused due to lack of protein dystrophin. Onset of symptoms is seen at the age of 3, generally wheelchair-bound by 12. Curvature in spine, heart, and lungs are the symptoms. Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD) is an X-linked disease predominantly affecting males, resulting in uniform muscle wasting. Death occurs due to respiratory failure in mid-twenties.

  1. Becker Muscular Dystrophy (BMD)

Similar to Duchenne, however, with later onset and slow progression of the illness. Death occurs in mid-forties.

  1. Oculopharyngeal Muscular Dystrophy (OMD)

Initially affect eyelids, throat, and face followed by pelvis and shoulder. The onset of illness is seen between the age 40 and 50.

  1. Myotonic Muscular Dystrophy (MSD)

Most common form of muscular dystrophy in adults also called as Steinert’s disease. This is characterized by the inability of muscles to relax after contraction. Cataracts, insomnia, and arrhythmia are the symptoms.

  1. Congenital Muscular Dystrophy (CMD)

The disease prevails from birth or before the age of 2. Significant impairment is caused by swift progression of the disease. Congenital muscular dystrophy (CMD) results in learning disabilities and mental retardation.

Rising prevalence of muscular dystrophies with unspecific current medications are expected to fuel the muscular dystrophies treatment market

According to the Karger Journal in 2014, the global prevalence for muscular dystrophies accounted between 19.8 and 25.1 per 100,000 person every year with myotonic dystrophy (0.5-18.1 per 100,000), duchenne muscular dystrophy (1.7-4.2) and facioscapulohumeral muscular dystrophy (3.2-4.6 per 100,000) to be the most common types of disorders. The initial research phase of the therapies and ongoing clinical trials for the development of innovative products are expected to drive the global muscular dystrophy treatment market. Moreover, specific guidance for drug development for muscular dystrophy drugs published by the U.S. FDA in 2015, is expected to accelerate new drug development for the treatment of disorder. The emergence of disease-modifying therapies as a replacement for the unmet medical needs of patients, who are not amenable to mutation-specific drugs are expected to fuel growth of the global muscular dystrophy treatment market over the forecast period. However, fast prognosis of disorder and low treatment seeking rate due to delayed diagnosis are the major limiting factors, which are expected to hamper growth of the global muscular dystrophy treatment market.

North America is expected to dominate the global market

Regional segmentation of the global muscular dystrophy treatment market by Coherent Market Insights comprises North America, Latin America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Middle East and Africa. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates in 2007, 349 out of 2.37 million males aged 5 to 24 years were reported to have duchenne muscular dystrophy or becker muscular dystrophy in the U.S. North America is expected to dominate the global muscular dystrophy treatment market, owing to the absence of marketed pharmacological therapies indicated to treat muscular dystrophy, rising prevalence of the disease, and rising research and development for producing effective drugs. Europe is expected to boost the market growth over the forecast period, owing to growing public awareness and increasing research activities.

Key Players

Key players operating in the global muscular dystrophy treatment market include Santhera Pharmaceuticals, PTC Therapeutics, BioMarin Pharmaceutical, Sarepta Therapeutics and Eli Lilly. The approval and launch of oral corticosteroid Emflaza in 2017, has been found highly effective in patients to regain strength and restore their ability to walk. The other vendors include Acceleron Pharma, Capricor Therapeutics, Bristol-Myers Squibb, Lexicon Pharmaceuticals, and Pfizer.
