Market Overview

Benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) is being accepted as a growing health problem among elderly men. With the rising population of aged men, the degree of the problem is projected to rise multifold over the next few years. 

As per a publication in the United States Census Bureau (2018), the population of people aged 65 and above in the United States is likely to increase drastically between 2016 and 2060. By 2030, one in five US citizens is expected to be 65 years and older, crossing 78.0 million, out of the total population.

The diseased population is also significantly rising in the emerging markets. The advancements in early diagnosis of the disease and geriatric population are driving the demand for products to cure benign prostatic hyperplasia.

  • Moreover, for people with high blood pressure and BPH, alpha-blockers are the ideal treatment line for both the conditions.
  • Owing to these factors, alpha-blockers accounted for the largest market share in the global benign prostatic hyperplasia market.
