Commenting on the report, an analyst from the team said: “The acceptability of ALS drugs is expected to rise due to increasing public awareness of ALS and associated disorders. This is expected to result in increasing drug penetration. Rising general awareness about ALS has led to an increase in research funding and support for clinical and support services. For instance, May is celebrated as ALS awareness month. The ALS Association strives to involve and engage patients and families in the process of increasing awareness and advocating for legislative changes. Similarly, CDMRP also organizes the ALS Research Program. The global research effort through this program has helped increase the number of scientists working on ALS, advanced new discoveries and treatments, and has shed light on the complex genetic and environmental factors involved in ALS. ”
According to the report, one of the main drivers in this market is the increase in the aging population. The number of patients suffering from ALS is increasing due to its relatively high prevalence in the elderly population.
Further, the report states that one of the main challenges is the patent expiry of Rilutek. The patent expiry of Rilutek, the only marketed drug for the treatment of ALS, will result in the loss of market exclusivity.
The study was conducted using an objective combination of primary and secondary information including inputs from key participants in the industry. The report contains a comprehensive market and vendor landscape in addition to a SWOT analysis of the key vendors.
