Neurodegenerative Disease Market Analysis

The Neurodegenerative Disease Market size is estimated at USD 55.12 billion in 2024, and is expected to reach USD 77.82 billion by 2029, growing at a CAGR of 7.14% during the forecast period (2024-2029).

The key growth determinants of the market include the increasing number of neurological disorders, growing awareness globally, and a strong lineup of products for treating neurodegenerative diseases. As the global population grows and people live longer on average, more people are experiencing neurological disorders.

According to data from the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences, as of June 2022, around 6.2 million Americans had Alzheimer's disease. Furthermore, a study published in the Lancet Journal in March 2024 showed that neurological disorders contribute to 3.4 billion disability-adjusted life-years (DALYs) worldwide. This high burden of neurological disorders is anticipated to increase the demand for treatments and effective methods, driving growth in the neurodegenerative disease market.

The market is set to expand due to increasing attention to developing products for neurodegenerative diseases. For instance, in December 2023, Alpha Cognition reported that the US FDA accepted its New Drug Application for ALPHA-1062, intended for treating Mild-to-Moderate Alzheimer's Disease. ALPHA-1062 is a drug that inhibits acetylcholinesterase, with fewer expected side effects on the stomach.

In March 2024, Prilenia Therapeutics BV shared its plan to submit a Marketing Authorization Application (MAA) for pridopidine to the Medicinal Products for Human Use (CHMP) committee under the European Medicines Agency, seeking approval to treat Huntington's disease (HD). This trend of developing products and obtaining regulatory approvals shows a growing effort to address neurodegenerative diseases, driving market growth.

These factors are expected to contribute to the market's growth during the forecast period. However, strict regulatory requirements and the expiration of patents for treatments of neurodegenerative diseases are significant factors that could hinder market growth.

Neurodegenerative Disease Industry Segmentation

As per the scope of the report, neurodegenerative disease is a broad term used to denote a range of conditions that primarily affect the neurons in the brain. Neurodegenerative diseases are incurable, and neuron degradation leads to neurons' gradual death.

Neurodegenerative Disease Market Size Summary

The Neurodegenerative Disease Market is expected to experience significant growth in the upcoming years. This growth is anticipated due to an increase in the prevalence of neurological disorders, growing awareness among the population, and a robust pipeline of products for the treatment of neurodegenerative diseases. However, the COVID-19 pandemic has impacted the market growth due to disruptions in clinical trials, research, and development activities. Despite this, the market has seen a positive impact in the later phase as research and development activities resumed. The market is witnessing trends such as an expected significant growth in the Alzheimer's Disease segment and North America dominating the market over the forecast period. The Alzheimer's segment is expected to grow due to the increasing prevalence of the disease and the launch of new products and research and development activities. North America's dominance in the market is attributed to the increasing number of neurological disorders and research and development activities focused on developing treatments for such diseases. Despite the promising growth, the market faces challenges such as stringent regulatory guidelines and the patent expiry of neurodegenerative disease treatment products.
