Published Date : Feb 2021 | No. of Pages : 250 Pages | Category : Healthcare

The global Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy (DMD) Drugs market size was valued at US$ 465 million in 2020 and is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 44.3% during forecast period 2021 to 2030.

Growth Factors

The disease is the most common form of muscular dystrophy affecting 16 to 20 infants per 100,000 live births.

DMD is caused due to absence or deformity in the DMD gene that codes for dystrophin - a key protein for maintaining muscular integrity. The condition primarily affects males, as it is an X-linked genetic disorder. Females carrying the mutation in the dystrophin gene are usually asymptomatic or show mild symptoms.

The market is projected to exhibit strong growth through the forecast period. The growth can be majorly attributed to factors such as the emergence of mutation-specific therapies, rising incidence of the condition, and improved diagnostics. Government initiatives supporting target-specific treatments and favorable reimbursement policies are expected to stoke the growth of the market. Furthermore, growing acceptance of targeted therapies, such as Exondys51, Translarna, and Emflaza, is likely to boost the therapeutic space.

The high cost of therapeutics remains an impediment to the growth of the DMD drugs landscape. However, affordable healthcare measures are being adopted by governments across all major regions, impacting the pricing strategies of companies as well as reimbursement scenario. Rising cost consciousness is poised to hinder premium pricing opportunities for upcoming DMD drugs.

Report Highlights

On the basis of the therapeutic approach, the market is divided into mutation suppression, exon skipping, and steroid therapy. An estimated 15.0% of all DMD cases result from nonsense mutations, leading to a truncated protein. Drugs such as ataluren (Translarna) bypass nonsense mutations. Mutation-suppressive drugs tend to prolong ambulation and have fewer adverse effects than steroids.

The exon-skipping approach is anticipated to register the steepest growth among all therapeutic methods. Nearly 50.0% and 90.0% of patients suffering from DMD mutations can benefit from single-exon skipping and multi-exon skipping, respectively. Sarepta’s Exondys51 is currently the only approved exon-skipping drug for DMD. Increasing adoption of this drug class and the launch of pipeline drugs are expected to fuel growth prospects.

Corticosteroids are the only class of drugs with proven efficacy in improving muscle strength in the case of DMD. Corticosteroids, such as deflazacort (Emflaza), have demonstrated delayed nonambulation; however, adverse effects of steroid therapy impedes their adoption.

Among the seven major markets, the U.S. dominated the DMD drugs market in 2017. The U.S. is expected to continue leading the market until 2023. High incidence of DMD in the U.S., booming treatment rate, and anticipated launch of pipeline products are some of the factors propelling the market in the country.

The EU5 has limited options for DMD as Exondys51 and Emflaza have not been approved in the region. Translarna remains the only treatment for nonsense mutation DMD patients who are in ambulatory state and are 5 years or older. The drug received conditional approval in Europe in 2014 and was labeled as an orphan medicinal product by the European Medicines Agency. 

Japan is likely to witness the fastest growth among all the seven major markets during the forecast period. Currently, Prednisolone (corticosteroid) is the only approved drug for DMD. Japan’s 2014 guidelines for DMD recognized steroid therapy as the only treatment for muscle degeneration in DMD. However, the launch of pipeline drugs is poised to boost the development of other therapeutic approaches.
