Lipodystrophy Treatment Market Growth Impact and Demand by Regions

Lipodystrophy is abnormal central fat accumulation or localized loss of fat tissue or mixed clinical presentations representing both. It is also known as the Lawrence-Seip syndrome, a rare group of syndromes, either acquired or congenital. People with lipodystrophy experience an uncontrolled loss of fat tissue, especially fat under the skin. This causes a drop in an important hormone called leptin. Without enough fat tissue or Leptin, the body’s system for regulating energy use falls out of balance.

Read Report Overview:

As per the Lipodystrophy United, the global prevalence of lipodystrophy has been estimated at less than 1 case in 100,000 people. According to an article published in the Journal of Diabetes, Metabolic Syndrome and Obesity: Targets and Therapy, in 2017 in Europe, the prevalence of lipodystrophy was 2.63 cases/million. The two most common acquired varieties of lipodystrophy include acquired generalized lipodystrophy and acquired partial lipodystrophy. Highly active antiretroviral therapy-induced lipodystrophy in HIV-infected patients and drug-induced localized lipodystrophy are other common sub-types. Lipodystrophy is a rare disease that affects fewer than 200,000 people in the U.S.. The global lipodystrophy treatment market is expected to expand at a robust pace during the forecast period. High return on investments for the development of orphan drugs, strong research and development initiatives for orphan drugs in developed countries, and increase in the number of rare diseases related to genetic mutations that are treated using orphan drugs are expected to drive the market in the coming years.

Europe is a prominent region of the orphan drugs market. According to a Research Office Legislative Council Secretariat report, in 2015, over 30 million people were suffering from rare diseases in the European Union. Incentives offered to promote the manufacture of orphan drugs in the region, such as a10-year period of marketing exclusivity, research grants, and reduced fees for marketing authorization applications, aid in the expansion of the market. Over 1,805 drugs have been granted orphan drug status in the European Union, and over 128 drugs were granted marketing authority from 2000 to 2016.
