The global dementia drugs market size is expected to grow at a CAGR of 12.1% over the forecast period. Increasing prevalence of target disease and growing geriatric population suffering from these diseases are expected to promote growth of the market. According to the World Health Organization, around 50 million people have dementia, and there are nearly 10 million new cases every year which is anticipated to boost the industry growth.

The presence and development of pipeline drugs, such as ORAL PF-01913539 by Pfizer, are expected to have a strong positive impact on the growth of this industry. This drug is currently under Phase 3 clinical trial to evaluate its safety and efficacy in the treatment of mild-to-moderate Alzheimer’s disease. The result of the clinical trial is expected to be announced in 2020. Other pipeline drugs include BAN2401 by Eisai Inc and Solanezumab by Eli Lilly, which are in Phase 3 of a clinical trial and are going to be launched over the next 6 years.

The increasing government funding for the target disease care, support, and research activities is estimated to fuel the growth of this industry. Various organizations involved in this activity include the National Institute of Health (NIH), Alzheimer’s Association, and National Institute on Aging. In 2019, the NIH has spent around USD 387 million on research projects for Alzheimer's Disease Related Dementias (ADRD). These initiatives are anticipated to provide this market with growth opportunities. However, lack of awareness regarding target disease in developing country may restrict the market.
