Rising Prevalence of Diabetic and Obese Population Globally
The increasing global prevalence of diabetic and obese population particularly in the developed markets is expected to raise the NASH therapeutics and diagnostics market. An estimated 5-20% of the population accounting for nearly 15 million, shows the prevalence of NASH consuming fatty acids diet in the United States, which is driven by obesity and diabetes. In the United Kingdom, as per the Diabetes Community, 2015, over four million people were diagnosed with diabetes which represented 6% of the United Kingdom’s population, i.e., one in every 16. With that, the United Kingdom had the fifth highest rate of obesity in Europe in 2015, with nearly 25% of the population having body mass index of 30 or more. A similar trend or higher could be found in several developed countries, which raises the demand for NASH therapeutics and diagnostics market.
Other factors driving this market are the lucrative pipeline for NASH therapeutics and emergence of novel biomarkers and improvement in liver biopsy technologies.
Slow Advances in the Therapeutic Field
One of the primary hindrances for NASH therapeutics and diagnostics market is the slow advancements in the therapeutic field. According to an article published in 2015, in the Journal of Hepatology, there is no approved drug for NASH even after the 35 years of its formal description and 15 years of intense research worldwide. Although there are several drugs in the pipeline but the process of approving the drug to next phase has been slow. The wide range of multiple pathogenic mechanisms hinders the success rate of the drugs in clinical trials. Thus, restricting the growth of this market.
Another factor impeding this market is the lack of effective diagnostics for NAFLD.
North America to Dominate the Market
North America is set to dominate the market in the period from 2018 to 2023 for NASH therapeutics and diagnostics. The well-established healthcare infrastructure with high preference to research and development activities makes the United States a region with high opportunities for growth and long-term establishment for companies. With that, the large number of prevailing cases of high cholesterol and change in lifestyle plays a vital role in the growth of this market.
