Posted by Diksha Pote on May 10th, 2019

Market Scenario:

Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease or CJD is a rare, degenerative brain disorder which may lead to dementia and sudden death. The early stage symptoms of the disease include failing memory and lack of coordination followed by visual disturbances. As the disease progresses, mental deterioration becomes prominent leading to weakness of extremities, and conditions like coma. The CJD disease can be classified into three major groups, namely sporadic CJD, hereditary CJD, and acquired CJD. Sporadic CJD is the most common form of the disease and accounts for approximately 85% of the total reported cases. Increasing prevalence of Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease and growing geriatric population are estimated to be the major drivers for the market growth during the forecast period. In 2017, the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke stated that approximately 300 new cases of CJD are reported every year within the U.S. Moreover, it has been estimated that the symptomatic onset of the medical condition occurs predominantly around the age of 60.

Additionally, factors such as increasing per capita healthcare expenditure and extensive research and development by the market players will drive the market growth. However, lack of awareness, limited availability of therapeutics, and erroneous diagnostic results are estimated to restrain the market growth during the forecast period.
