Levothyroxine Sodium Market By Disease Indication (Hypothyroidism, Goiter, Thyroid Cancer, Myxedema Coma) - Growth, Future Prospects & Competitive Analysis, 2018 – 2026

Published: Nov 2018 | Report Code: 59442-11-18

Industry Outlook

Hypothyroidism as a syndrome was first recognized in the 1870s and its treatment with animal extracted thyroid was achieved in 1890s. Since 1927, synthetic thyroid hormone replacement therapy has been available, and in the recent years, there has been a minor shift in treatment away from levothyroxine. The currently popular treatment forms include use of liothyronine T3 as a monotherapy or even commonly combined with levothyroxine T3/T4. However, there is not current formulation of T3/T4 that completely replicates the natural hormone pattern released from human thyroid. Levothyroxine formulations have been vastly available across the global market.

Market Synopsis

Levothyroxine Sodium Market

Hypothyroidism to occupy the Largest Revenue Share through the Forecast Period

Hypothyroidism is the common thyroid disorder observed worldwide. Autoimmune diseases (Hashimoto thyroiditis) and iodine deficiency account for vast majority of primary hypothyroidism cases. Approximately one-third of the global population is housed in iodine deficient areas and the consequences of iodine deficiency often reflect through growth disorders and hypothyroidism. Hypothyroidism is tem times more prevalent in women than in men, whereas the prevalence of untreated overt hypothyroidism is significantly low. However, implementation of new thyroid function testing and low threshold treatment indication for thyroid disorders have resulted in growth in prescriptions of levothyroxine for hypothyroidism. In Europe, the prevalence of overt hypothyroidism ranged between 0.2% and 5.3%, which is further between 0.3% and 3.7% in the U.S.

Levothyroxine Sodium Market

Asia Pacific Set to Become a Prominent Market for Levothyroxine Sodium

North America remains the largest market for levothyroxine sodium drugs on the global front. The American thyroid Association reports that approximately 12% of the U.S. population shall develop thyroid condition during their lifetime, and 20 million Americans have some form of thyroid condition at any given time. High prevalence of thyroid disorders, better diagnostic regimen, and smaller treatment threshold are the key factors supporting the global dominance of North America market. Additionally, better reimbursements to levothyroxine drugs regimen both for short and long term treatments drive the market growth. On the other hand, Asia Pacific will progress at faster growth rate during the forecast period from 2018 to 2026. Rapidly growing awareness and significant untapped opportunities, along with evidently large patient population contribute to the rapid progress of Asia Pacific market. China and India are the most prominent markets for levothyroxine drugs. The prevalence of subclinical hypothyroidism in China has risen to 3.22%. A large  cross-sectional multicity study in India reported high prevalence of hypothyroidism (10%).
