Phenylketonuria Therapeutics Market is projected to grow with an 8.6% CAGR from 2023 to 2033 | FMI

According to a new market research report published by Future Market Insights, the global Phenylketonuria Therapeutics Market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 8.6% during the forecast period of 2023-2033.

Phenylketonuria is an inherited metabolic disorder that affects the way the body processes protein. Patients with PKU are unable to properly break down an amino acid called phenylalanine, which can lead to the build-up of toxic substances in the body. If left untreated, PKU can cause severe intellectual disability, seizures, and other neurological problems.

The global PKU therapeutics market is driven by a growing awareness of the disease and the availability of advanced treatments. The market is also benefiting from an increasing number of diagnostic tests and genetic screening programs that help identify patients with PKU at an early stage.

The primary treatment for PKU involves a strict, lifelong diet that restricts the intake of phenylalanine. However, many patients find it difficult to adhere to this diet, and as a result, they may require additional treatments. These include medications that help reduce the amount of phenylalanine in the blood, as well as enzyme replacement therapies that help break down phenylalanine more effectively.

It must be noted that the market is set to benefit from the development of new and innovative therapies for PKU. For example, gene therapy is an emerging area of research that aims to correct the genetic defects that cause PKU. Other promising approaches include the use of RNA interference to reduce the production of phenylalanine in the liver, as well as the use of enzyme replacement therapies that are more effective than current treatments.
