Market Overview

The progesterone market is expected to record a CAGR of 13.1% over the forecast period. 

  • Rising incidences of disorders, such as abnormal uterine bleeding and amenorrhea, and the female population suffering from these diseases, are expected to promote growth. According to the study of “Amenorrhea, Secondary”, in the US, approximately 5% of menstruating women experience 3 months of secondary amenorrhea, each year.
  • Menopausal females form the largest section of the market. Hence, the growing range of menopausal windows and the rising female population in the age group of 45-59 years are expected to further bolster the overall market growth.
  • In addition, an upsurge in the incidence of breast cancer in women is anticipated to be a key growth factor, as the patient pool of breast cancer may suffer from breast tenderness, where the progesterone hormone is considered as one of the treatment options. Hence, the usage of progesterone is anticipated to increase. As per the World Health Organization, breast cancer ranks as the fifth leading cause of death in women, impacting 2.1 million women, each year, thus, driving the market studied.
  • The growing demand for progesterone is driven by the presence of routinely monitored formulations, technological advancements in the field of drug delivery systems, and increasing awareness among patients.
  • The wide range of pipeline drugs possessing high probability of approval in clinical trials in the future is predicted to provide lucrative growth opportunities to the progesterone market. Some imperative investigational drugs include DARE-HRT1, Onapristone, and VOLT02.
  • However, the lack of awareness regarding the availability of the progesterone therapy in developing regions and side effects of the therapy may restrict the market.

Key Market Trends

The Natural Progesterone Segment is Believed to Witness Healthy Growth

The product segment includes natural progesterone and synthetic progesterone. Natural progesterone-based products are inclusive of combination drug therapies made from soybeans or a wild, inedible Mexican yam called Diascorea villosa.

Natural progesterone is expected to witness lucrative growth during the forecast period. Natural progesterone-based products have been studied to generate the largest number of prescriptions. Drugs, such as Crinone and Prometrium, are the major contributors to revenue.

The high growth potential attained is a consequence of positive patient outcomes associated with natural progesterone. The positive patient outcomes can be attributed to significant improvements in hormonal interactions.

Hence, due to the significance of natural progesterone, the segment may witness rapid growth.
