Based on drug type, the global amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) treatment market is segmented as follows:

  • Riluzole
  • Edaravone
  • Other

Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) is also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease or Maladie De Charcot, it is a neurological disease that causes nerve cells to gradually break down and die. According to Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), 14,000 - 15,000 Americans had ALS in 2016. Factors such as increasing treatment awareness, strong pipeline molecules, rising geriatric population and recent approval of new treatment medication is expected to drive the growth of ALS treatment market globally. Currently, there is no cure for ALS however, treatments are available to control symptoms and prevent unnecessary complications. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved only two drugs for the treatment of ALS it includes Riluzole (Rilutek) and Edaravone (Radicava). Other medications are prescribe to control ALS symptoms such as muscle cramps and spasms, spasticity, constipation, fatigue, excessive salivation, excessive phlegm, pain, depression and sleep problems. It is studied that in the base year 2016, Riluzole (Rilutek) was major revenue generating segment due to high compliance because it is the only medication used in treatment of ALS which works by reducing levels of a chemical messenger in the brain (glutamate) that often present in higher levels in people with ALS. Patent expiry of Rilutek in 2013 has negatively impacted the growth of ALS treatment market. On the other hand, recently approve Radicava expected to show highest growth rate during forecast period due to its applicability and higher cost are expected to drive market growth during forecast period. Moreover expected launch of ALS treatment molecule such as AB-1010 (masitinib), Methycobal (mecobalamin), Arimoclomol, CK-2017357 (CK-357, tirasemtiv) would assist market growth during forecast period.

Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) Treatment Market

For the purpose of this study, the global amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) treatment market is categorized into:

  • North America
  • Europe
  • Asia Pacific
  • Latin America (LATAM)
  • Middle East and Africa (MEA)   

Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) Treatment Market

It is observed that, in the base year 2016, North America dominated the ALS treatment market in terms of revenue due to the factors such as upsurge in funding by government agencies and private organizations in healthcare system, increase in prevalence of the neurological diseases and higher treatment awareness are assisting market growth in North America. According to National ALS Registry, in year 2016, more than 12,000 people in the United States have a definite diagnosis of ALS, prevalence of 3.9 cases per 100,000 persons in the U.S. general population. According to National Organization for Rare Disorders (NORD), ALS is a rare disorder, approximately 5,000 new cases are diagnosed each year in the United States. Even though Riluzole is expensive, insurance policies such as Medicare, also the National Organization for Rare Diseases also support covers Riluzole. Furthermore Covis Patient Assistance Program helps U.S. citizens or residents who don't have a health care plan or have been denied coverage for treatment which is further driving the market growth in North America. It is estimated that, Asia Pacific will show highest growth rate during forecast period due to increasing healthcare awareness, increasing partnership of key players such as Biogen, Avicena, Mitsubishi Tanabe, and Sanofi with local manufacturer, populous countries and developing economic condition would fuel ALS treatment market growth.
