Erythropoietin Stimulating Agents Market Insights
The global erythropoietin stimulating agents market is expected to generate revenue amounting to USD 11.90 billion in 2020, and is projected to reach to USD 20.80 billion by 2026, growing at a CAGR of 9.75% over the forecast period. Rising incidence of chronic diseases such as CKD and cancer resulting in anemia is one of the major factor driving the market for erythropoietin stimulating agents during the forecast period. According to the data published by the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute of the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services, more than 3 million people are affected by anemia every year and this number is expected to increase during the forecast period (2020-2026). Erythropoietin Stimulating Agents have been approved for the treatment of anemia due to chronic kidney failure, chemotherapy, HIV, and for the treatment of reduced red blood cells during critical surgical procedures. Increasing number of cancer treatments across various regions including North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, and Central & South America is further projected to propel the market growth of Erythropoietin stimulating agents. However, stringent regulatory guidelines and adverse side effects, are likely to hamper the market growth during the forecast period.
Erythropoietin Stimulating Agents Market Size: By Segmentation
The global erythropoietin stimulating agents market is segmented on the basis of type into epoetin alfa, epoetin beta, and darbepoetin alfa among others. The epoetin alfa segment is expected to hold the largest market share in the global erythropoietin stimulating agents market during the forecast period. Epoetin alfa is a human erythropoietin produced in cell culture using recombinant DNA technology. Epoetin alfa products are used to treat anemia in people with chronic kidney failure. Growing number of cancer patients and increasing number of surgeries is expected to drive the market growth for epoetin alfa segment during the forecast period. Epoetin-beta and epoetin-zeta are expected to grow at a significant CAGR during the forecast period owing to associated benefits such as longer half-life and enhanced therapeutic effects.
On the basis of application, the global erythropoietin stimulating agents market is segmented into cancer, renal disorders, anti-retroviral treatment, and neural diseases among others. The cancer segment is expected to hold the largest market share and is also expected to grow at a significant CAGR during the forecast period. Anemia is observed in majority of patients undergoing cancer treatment. Anemia results in fatigue, weakness, and depression, which severely reduces the quality of life of cancer patients. Increase in cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy is expected to propel the market growth for erythropoietin stimulating agents during the forecast period. Growing healthcare expenditure across the globe to treat cancer patients is also driving the market growth.
Erythropoietin Stimulating Agents Market Size: By Region
On the basis of region, the market of erythropoietin stimulating agents is segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Central & South America, and Middle East & Africa. The North America region is expected to dominate the market and is also estimated to expand at a rapid pace during the forecast period. Rise in various chronic diseases, such as chronic kidney disease (CKD), cancer, neural, and HIV infections among others in the region is driving the market growth for erythropoietin stimulating agents. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), it is estimated that more than 10% of adults in the United States suffer from CKD. The increasing number of people at high risk for CKD is expected to propel the market growth. According to the data published CDC, in 2018 more than 29 million people suffered from diabetes, and about 86 million were in the pre-diabetic stage.
Erythropoiesis-stimulating agents are medications which stimulate the bone marrow to make red blood cells. They are used to treat anemia due to end stage kidney disease, chemotherapy, major surgery, or certain treatments in HIV/AIDS. ESAs are usually given to patients who have chronic kidney disease or end-stage renal (kidney) disease. They are given to the patients usually who have lower hemoglobin levels. ESAs are also prescribed for patients who have cancer.
In May 2018, Pfizer Inc launched RETACRIT (epoetin alfa-epbx), a biosimilar to Epogen and Procrit (epoetin alfa) 1 approved by United States (U.S.) Food and Drug Administration (FDA). RETACRIT is the first biosimilar erythropoiesis-stimulating agent (ESA) to be approved in the U.S.
