Finasteride Market Will Expand as Demand for Effective Benign Prostate Hyperplasia Treatment Rises: Fact MR Study

Fact MR: The rising demand for effective treatment of male pattern baldness will have a positive impact on the global finasteride market. Besides this, the increasing use of finasteride as an oral medication in the treatment of benign prostate hyperplasia will create growth opportunities, finds Fact MR in a new study.

According to the Asian Journal of Urology, the prevalence of benign prostate hyperplasia increases with age after 40 years and varies from 8% - 60% at the age of 90 years. Considering this, rising geriatric population will fuel the demand for finasteride in the coming years.

According to the British Association of Urological Surgeons Limited (BAUS), the prevalence rate of benign prostate hyperplasia is estimated to be 42% for men aged 51 to 60 years.

Finasteride is a drug used to treat benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) that causes prostate enlargement in males. Hair loss is often caused by the disorder. Proscar and Propecia are two brand names for finasteride.
