Von Willebrand Disease (VWD) Treatment: Market Size, Segmentation, Opportunities, Trends, Growth and Industry Forecast To 2020


According to World Federation of Hemophilia (WFH), von Willebrand disease (VWD) is the most common type of bleeding disorder. People with VWD have a problem with a protein in their blood called von Willebrand factor (VWF) that helps control bleeding. When a blood vessel is injured and bleeding occurs, VWF helps cells in the blood, called platelets, mesh together and form a clot to stop the bleeding. According to market experts, around 1% of the world’s population suffers from VWD, but due to presence of very mild symptoms only a few number of patients are aware about the condition. Research has shown that as many as 9 out of 10 people with VWD have not been diagnosed. On the basis of type of VWD, von Willebrand disease treatment market can be segmented as Type 1 VWD, Type 2 VWD and Type 3 VWD. The types of therapeutic treatments used against von Willebrand disease are Desmopressin (DDAVP), hormone replacement therapy, contraceptives, anti-fibrinolytic or clot-stabilizing drugs, and fibrin sealants.

Recently, the FDA has approved Bendeka (bendamustine) product of Teva and Eagle Pharmaceuticals, a novel drug formulation that can be administered via a shorter, lower-volume infusion - for chronic lymphocytic leukaemia and B-cell non-Hodgkin's lymphoma.It was observed that Teva received US commercialisation rights to Bendeka under a deal with Eagle signed in February, and plans to launch the therapy during the first quarter of 2016.

The key factor responsible for growth of von Willebrand disease is increasing public awareness related to VWD which is fueling the diagnosis rate in North America and Europe. North America was observed as the largest market for von Willebrand disease treatment followed by Europe. Asia Pacific was anticipated to grow at a fastest CAGR during the forecast period 2016 to 2022. The key factors assisting the growth of Asia Pacific von Willebrand disease treatment market are the rising awareness associated with the rare diseases, developing healthcare infrastructure, high disposable income and government support for novel treatment against rare genetic diseases.
