Ursodeoxycholic Acid Market Projections of Trends and Growth till 2026

Posted by Rajkumar on July 18th, 2019

Ursodeoxycholic acid (UDCA) is a bile acid taken as either a tablet or liquid to treat gallstones and to treat and prevent progression of cystic fibrosis-related liver disorders. UDCA modifies the bile acid pool by decreasing levels of hydrophobic bile acids while increasing proportion of nontoxic hydrophilic bile acids. UDCA can delay development of gastroesophageal varices and progression to cirrhosis. Moreover, it can improve long-term survival in patients with primary biliary cirrhosis.

Significant improvement in liver health can be achieved through UDCA therapy in patients with intrahepatic cholestasis of pregnancy, primary sclerosing cholangitis, nonalcoholic fatty liver disease, cystic fibrosis-associated liver disease, total parenteral nutrition-induced cholestasis, graft related liver disease, and in some pediatric cholestatic liver diseases.


The global ursodeoxycholic acid market size was valued at US$ 457.3 million in 2017 and is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 10.1% over the forecast period (2018 – 2026).


Increasing prevalence of gall stones and cystic fibrosis to propel the ursodeoxycholic acid market growth


Ursodeoxycholic acid is being increasingly used for treatment of chronic cholestatic liver diseases. Increasing prevalence of cystic fibrosis and gall stones is the major factor driving growth of the global ursodeoxycholic acid market during the forecast period. According to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation 2015 data, around 30,000 people suffered from cystic fibrosis in the U.S. Moreover, around 1,000 new cases of cystic fibrosis are diagnosed in the country, annually. According to the American Gastroenterological Association 2017 report, gallstones is affecting 10-15% of the U.S. population annually, which accounts for around 25 million people.


Increasing research studies on ursodeoxycholic acid to bolster the market growth


Increasing research studies conducted on application of ursodeoxycholic acid (UDCA) in other disease indications is expected to fuel growth of the global ursodeoxycholic acid market. According to the University of Sheffield August 2018 study, UDCA improves mitochondrial dysfunction, which is known to be a causative factor for both sporadic and familial Alzheimer’s disease.


According to the Cure Parkinson’s Trust, U.K. 2018 article, researchers demonstrated that UDCA could protect dopamine cells grown in culture from apoptosis, or programmed cell death, by regulating a specific cell survival pathway.
