Global Neurodegenerative Disease Market

Report ID : 1097 | Published : 2021-07-24 | Pages: | Format: PDF/EXCEL

An umbrella term for a range of conditions that affect neurons in the human brain are referred to as neurodegenerative diseases. Neurons normally don’t replace or reproduce themselves, so when they become damaged or die, they cannot be replaced by the body. Neurodegenerative diseases are incurable and debilitating conditions that result in progressive degeneration and/or death of nerve cells. Degenerative nerve diseases include Alzheimer's disease, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, Friedreich's ataxia, huntington’s disease, Lewy body disease, Parkinson's disease, spinal muscular atrophy.
The market of neurodegenerative disease is boosted by the rising awareness among people and the research and developmental activities undertaken by various research institutions and companies to develop effective therapies to treat them. However, the complex nature of the diseases and the lack of knowledge about their causative factors in most cases hamper the advancement of research and development into effective treatment methods. Current therapies only help to alleviate symptoms rather than curing. Due to rapidly increasing prevalence, Alzheimer's disease and Parkinson's disease pose to be the most challenging diseases. Entry of generics to the already existing products can be a challenge to the market. Reformulating marketed drugs shall provide great opportunities to the neurodegenerative disease market.

The global market for neurodegenerative disease is fragmented into its drug class and indications. Based on the drug class, the global market is segregated into NMDA, dopamine inhibitors, and SSRIs. On the basis of indications, the market is categorized into Huntington disease, Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson's disease, spinal muscular atrophy, and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis. The market is also segmented based on the region Americas, the EMEA, and the APAC.
Some of the molecules under development include VY AADC is gene therapy from Voyager Therapeutics, which is in phase 2 stage of development for the treatment of Parkinson's disease, Crenezumab of Roche is in Phase 3 for Alzheimer’s disease, Gocovri, Ingrezza , Radicava are some of the products approved in 2017 for neurodegenerative diseases.
Some of the key players include Novartis, Pfizer, Merck Serono, Biogen Idec, TEVA, UCB, Boehringer Ingelheim, Sanofi, GlaxoSmithKline.

InsightAce Analytic follows a standard and comprehensive market research methodology focused on offering the most accurate and precise market insights. The methods followed for all our market research studies include three significant steps – primary research, secondary research, and data modeling and analysis - to derive the current market size and forecast it over the forecast period. In this study, these three steps were used iteratively to generate valid data points (minimum deviation), which were cross-validated through multiple approaches mentioned below in the data modeling section.

Through secondary research methods, information on the market under study, its peer, and the parent market was collected. This information was then entered into data models. The resulted data points and insights were then validated by primary participants.

Based on additional insights from these primary participants, more directional efforts were put into doing secondary research and optimize data models. This process was repeated till all data models used in the study produced similar results (with minimum deviation). This way, this iterative process was able to generate the most accurate market numbers and qualitative insights.

Secondary research

The secondary research sources that are typically mentioned to include, but are not limited to:

  • Company websites, financial reports, annual reports, investor presentations, broker reports, and SEC filings.
  • External and internal proprietary databases, regulatory databases, and relevant patent analysis
  • Statistical databases, National government documents, and market reports
  • Press releases, news articles, and webcasts specific to the companies operating in the market

The paid sources for secondary research like Factiva, OneSource, Hoovers, and Statista

Primary Research:

Primary research involves telephonic interviews, e-mail interactions, as well as face-to-face interviews for each market, category, segment, and subsegment across geographies

The contributors who typically take part in such a course include, but are not limited to: 

  • Industry participants: CEOs, CBO, CMO, VPs, marketing/ type managers, corporate strategy managers, and national sales managers, technical personnel, purchasing managers, resellers, and distributors.
  • Outside experts: Valuation experts, Investment bankers, research analysts specializing in specific markets
  • Key opinion leaders (KOLs) specializing in unique areas corresponding to various industry verticals
  • End-users: Vary mainly depending upon the market

Data Modeling and Analysis:

In the iterative process (mentioned above), data models received inputs from primary as well as secondary sources. But analysts working on these models were the key. They used their extensive knowledge and experience about industry and topic to make changes and fine-tuning these models as per the product/service under study.

The standard data models used while studying this market were the top-down and bottom-up approaches and the company shares analysis model. However, other methods were also used along with these – which were specific to the industry and product/service under study.
