Global Immune Thrombocytopenia Drugs Market 2019-2023

About this market

Immune thrombocytopenia is common among young women, and its risk is higher in people with diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis, HIV, hepatitis, lupus, and antiphospholipid syndrome. The prevalence of these diseases is high across the world. For instance, in 2016, over a million people in the US were diagnosed with HIV infection, and nearly 1% of the adults in the US had Hepatitis C. The growing incidences of such risk factors will increase the prevalence of immune thrombocytopenia. This will increase the demand for treatment options, thereby driving the growth of the global immune thrombocytopenia market size at a CAGR of nearly 5% during the forecast period.

Market Overview

Expected approvals for late-stage pipeline molecules

The market is witnessing accelerated growth in the number of molecules in the pipeline for the treatment of immune thrombocytopenia. At present, there are over 5 therapeutics to treat immune thrombocytopenia. These drugs are in the late stages of development and are slated to receive marketing approvals during the forecast period.

Availability of substitutes

The side effects associated with the available drugs for the treatment of immune thrombocytopenia are forcing healthcare practitioners to adopt alternative treatment options such as platelet transfusion and surgery. These treatment options have higher efficacies when compared to the available drugs. This is expected to pose a challenge to the growth of the global immune thrombocytopenia market size.
