COVID-19 Impact on Parkinsons Disease Treatment Market: Increasing Prevalence

Posted by Ritika Tyagi on December 16th, 2020

Parkinson’s disease treatment is used to treat the symptoms of Parkinson’s disease, generally, medication is the first line treatment for this disease. Currently, a wide range of treatments is available for alleviating the symptoms of Parkinson’s disease.

The global parkinsons disease treatment market is expected to reach USD 5.69 billion by 2022 from USD 4.24 billion in 2017, at a CAGR of 6.1%.

Medication is the first line therapy for treating the disease; however, they are not effective in all stages of the disease. In the severe stages, medications do not show pharmacological action in relieving disease symptoms. Neurologists perform thalamotomy, pallidotomy, or implant deep brain stimulation (DBS) devices in order to ease symptoms.

Moreover, the focus on gene therapy research has increased. According to the Parkinson’s Disease Clinic and Research Center, University of California, US, gene therapy for Parkinson’s disease has shown promising results in phase I studies. Phase II and III studies are currently under progress.

Surgical treatments, restriction on the use of medications in severe stages of the disease, and the increased focus on gene therapy research are expected to restrain the demand for therapeutic drugs used in Parkinson’s disease.
