Market Overview

The Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis Treatment is expected to register a CAGR of 5.5% during the forecast period. This is attributing the rising prevalence of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis diseases and the growing geriatric population worldwide. As per the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, in 2016, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) is a common neuromuscular disease globally and around 14000-15000 individuals have experienced (ALS) in the United States. In addition, according to the National Institute of Neurological Disorder and Stroke, Sporadic ALS is the most common form type contributed to 90% of cases in the United States and Familial ALS contributed 10%. Thus, these populations are going to promote the demand for treatment of this disorder. Although there is no permanent solution for this disorder, stem cell therapies and medications will prevent complications and decline the disease progression. Moreover, the growing adoption of a sedentary lifestyle will be going to increase the chances of developing this disorder among the aging population which further creates a lucrative opportunity for major players to work for novel therapeutics approaches and treatments. However, less awareness and high costs associated with the treatment may hamper the market to a certain extent.
