Increasing Prevalence of Target Diseases Drives the Global Market

The aging population affected by target diseases such as Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, Lewy body, and vascular dementia, as well as the increasing incidence of these conditions, are anticipated to fuel market expansion. According to a study by Anna Ponjoan et al. that was released in the Clinical Epidemiology Journal in March 2019, the prevalence of dementia was 5.1% in Spain. In addition, dementia is more likely to affect women than men, and the risk increases with age. As the prevalence of dementia rises, there will likely be a greater demand for dementia drugs to treat the condition.

Introduction of Innovative Technologies and Drugs Creates Tremendous Opportunities 

The growing number of R&D projects targeted at developing novel pharmaceuticals with promising therapeutic goals is one of the factors driving the market’s growth. For instance, according to the National Clinical Trials (NCT) Registry, there were more than 800 ongoing interventional clinical studies for treating dementia in various stages of development globally as of March 29, 2021. To develop effective medicines, industry firms focus on cutting-edge techniques like amyloid protein.

Regional Analysis 

Europe is the most significant shareholder in the global dementia drugs market and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 8.05% during the forecast period. Due to expanded R&D efforts, the rising prevalence of target disorders, the growing senior population, and supporting pharmaceutical regulation, the market for dementia drugs in Germany is growing. The country not only has a large number of healthcare firms, but it also has a large number of government funding and awareness-building programs. Target disorders are getting more prevalent, and new cutting-edge technologies and drugs are making the market more alluring.

North America is expected to grow at a CAGR of 7.95%, generating USD 8,301.58 million during the forecast period. The United States is anticipated to influence the global market for dementia drugs over the forecast period as a result of the increasing number of clinical studies, funding for dementia-related research and development, the presence of key market players, the growing geriatric population, and the rising prevalence of target disorders like Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease. Domestic businesses employ various strategies to strengthen their positions in the market, such as product launches, mergers and acquisitions, and research and development.

Asia-Pacific is expected to grow over the forecast period due to factors such as the increasing prevalence of dementia-related diseases (primarily Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s) across the region, rising public awareness of these conditions, and an increasing number of new drug launches targeting these conditions. A few dementia-friendly communities were established in China, according to Alzheimer’s disease International. These communities included the first “Dementia Caregiver Support Group,” which was founded in 2000, and “Memory Health in the Community,” founded in 2010. These initiatives aim to raise public awareness of dementia and its prevention.
