Reportstack, provider of premium market research reports announces the addition of PharmaPoint: Parkinson's Disease - Global Drug Forecast and Market Analysis to 2022 market report to its offering
Parkinson’s disease is a progressive condition that is characterized by bradykinesia, muscular rigidity, tremor, and postural instability. As the second most common neurodegenerative disorder, Parkinson’s disease may affect individuals of any age but prevalence is increased with age and it is most common in the elderly. It is expected that the prevalence of Parkinson’s disease in the 7MM (US, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, UK, and Japan) and Brazil will increase from 3.2m people in 2012 to 4.3m people in 2022, driven by an aging population in all markets. Dopaminergic therapies have been fairly effective in treating bradykinesia, but several unmet needs remain. Some needs will be met during the forecast period from 2012-2022, while others, such as the need for disease-modifying drugs, will remain. The publisher expects that advancements will be made in levodopa administration and that four new molecular entities will be introduced to the market by 2022, these factors along with increased patient numbers from an aging population will drive the market during the forecast period.
