Market Overview

The endocrinology drugs market is expected to register a CAGR of 6.8% over the forecast period, 2022-2027.

During the pandemic, many research studies have demonstrated that people with thyroid disorders and diabetes are more prone to COVID-19 infection, creating a significant demand for the appropriate use of various endocrine drugs. For instance, in August 2020, the Lancet Diabetes and Endocrinology published that, patients with diabetes and uncontrolled hyperglycemia were at an increased risk and mortality due to COVID-19. A mini-review on “Impact of COVID-19 on the Endocrine System” published by Oxford University Press in January 2022, revealed that the transmembrane serine protease 2 (TMPRSS2) protein is required for the coronavirus to gain access to cells via the angiotensin-converting enzyme 2 (ACE2) receptor. Both ACE2 and TMPRSS2 protein are expressed in several endocrine glands, including the pancreas, thyroid gland, ovaries, and testes. This shows the endocrine system is vulnerable to both destruction and alteration in function due to COVID-19. As a result, COVID-19 had a significant impact on the endocrinology drugs market.

The major factors driving the growth of the market include an increase in the prevalence of endocrine disorders, a rising adolescent population with endocrine disorders, and extensive research and development. An increase in endocrine disorders specifically diabetes is one of the major factors driving the growth of the endocrinology drug market. According to the data published by World Health Organisation in November 2021, the growth of prevalence of diabetes is high in low- and middle-income countries compared to high-income countries. According to the same source, an estimated 1.5 million people died from diabetes and 48% of these deaths occurred before the age of 70 years in 2019.

Furthermore, the rising adolescent population with endocrine disorders is expected to propel the endocrinology drugs market over the forecast period. Extensive research and development on endocrine drugs like new drug delivery systems, novel dosage forms, and formulations are expected to increase the usage of the drugs, thus augmenting the market growth.

Scope of the Report

Key Market Trends

Diabetes is Expected to Dominate the Market Over the Forecast Period

In the United States, diabetes is the most prevalent endocrine condition. According to the data published by the United States Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, in 2018, 34.2 million people had diabetes but in 2020 it was increased to 37.3 million. In November 2021, the International Diabetes Federation (IDF) published that 1 in 6 adults are living with diabetes and almost half of the people living with diabetes in Mexico are undiagnosed. According to the same source, 1 in 7 adults (51 million) is diabetic in North America and Caribbean Region.

Furthermore, as per the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in 2021 updates, the incidence of diabetes among United States adults aged 18 years or older, was 1.4 million in 2019, also compared to adults aged 18 to 44 years, incidence rates of diagnosed diabetes were higher among adults aged more than 45 years. This shows the significant increase in new cases with an increase in age from 45 to 64 years, which drives the market of endocrinology drugs over the forecast period.

Endocrinology Drugs Market Share

North America is Expected to Dominate the Market Over the Forecast Period

North America is anticipated to have a significant share in the market, owing to the well-established healthcare infrastructure, high prevalence of obesity, unhealthy diet, altered lifestyle, and new product launches. FOr instance, in August 2021, the United States Food and Drug Administration approved rapid-acting insulin, Lyumjev (insulin lispro-aabc injection) 100 units/mL indicated to improve glycemic control in adults with type 1 and type 2 diabetes. Additionally, in July 2021, the United States Food and Drug Administration approved the first interchangeable biosimilar insulin product (Semglee (insulin glargine-yfgn)). 

These approvals will further help in the growth of the endocrinology drug market. Furthermore, Rybelsus received approval from Health Canada in April 2020 for the management of type 2 diabetes mellitus in adults. Thus, due to the above-mentioned factors, North America is likely to dominate the endocrinology drugs market over the forecast period.
