Key Drivers and Restraints of Global Homocystinuria Therapeutics Market

High demand for disease specific novel treatment can act as a major driver of the global market. Population studies suggest that the global prevalence of homocystinuria in the general population is 1 in 344,000. Prevalence may be higher in different countries. Europe has reported higher cases than North America and Asia Pacific. In Ireland, the prevalence has been estimated to be 1 in 65,000. In Germany, the prevalence has been estimated at 1 in 17,500.

However, limited patient pool for clinical trials and product marketing is likely to hamper the growth of the global market in the near future. Clinical trials for homocystinuria therapeutics are often smaller than those of other drugs and require the development of efficient trial designs relevant to small populations to gain the most information from the available data. Further progress is needed in trial design aiming to assess medicines in a cost-effective, rigorously controlled manner. These factors are likely to hamper the growth of the global market.
