Rising Organ Replacement Therapies Boosts Sales of Immunosuppressant Drugs
The increasing incidence of life-threatening diseases has augmented the demand for organ replacements and transplants as last resorts of treatment in case of organ failure or disabilities. Due to this, the number of people registering for organ transplantation has significantly increased as well. The increase in geriatric population directly influences the demand for organ transplants since aged people are more vulnerable to kidney and heart diseases. The rising incidence of chronic ailments will therefore fuel demand for organ transplant immunosuppressant drugs.
High Cost of Organ Replacement Surgeries Poses Threat to Market
“Despite witnessing increasing demand, the high cost of organ transplant procedures limits the scope for the market’s expansion,” observed the TMR analyst. Non-adherence of patients to immunosuppressive medicines across developing regions is often related to their high cost and the patient’s inability to pay for the same. Furthermore, the high cost of post-transplantation care presents a significant barrier to the development of transplantation capacity in middle-income countries. The inadequate insurance coverage also limits the sales of organ transplant immunosuppressant drugs in these countries.
The development of immunosuppressant drugs help overcome conditions related to organ rejection. Significant advances have been made in the field of medicine and technology, yet a large section of global population is yet become aware about organ transplantation and donation. This has created a considerable shortage of donor organs, thus negatively impacting the sales of immunosuppressant drugs.
Besides this, the advent of stem cell therapies could eventually reduce the need for organ transplants. This also threatens the growth prospects of the organ transplant immunosuppressant drugs market.
Nevertheless, extensive studies are underway to develop and test novel immunosuppressant therapeutics to prevent organ rejection. Such research and development activities will create opportunities for the market to gain from in the forthcoming years.
According to TMR, the global organ transplant immunosuppressant drugs market stood at US$5.1 bn in 2014. Rising at a CAGR of -5.0%, the market is expected to reach US$3.2 bn by the end of 2023.
