The human growth hormone also known as somatotropin is a peptide hormone secreted by the pituitary gland that regulates cell growth, cell regeneration and repair, reproduction, and metabolism that contributes to complete human growth. Growth hormone levels in the human body should be suitable for normal growth and can be controlled by factors such as exercise, sleep, stress, and low glucose levels. Human growth hormones also help regulate body composition, muscle growth & bone growth, body fluids, sugar & fat metabolism, and recovery from injury. It also helps increase muscle strength and performance.

In humans, a deficiency of growth hormone is caused when the pituitary gland does not include adequate concentration of human growth hormone. This deficiency is treated by injecting human growth hormone with a subcutaneous injection. Various genetic disorders such as Prader-Willi syndrome and Turner syndrome can also cause growth hormone deficiency, resulting in delayed puberty and shorter height than averages.

Turner syndrome, also known as congenital ovarian hypoplasia syndrome, occurs when the X chromosome is partially or completely lost in women. Turner syndrome (TS) is the most common type of human chromosomal aberration that occurs at 1:2,500 live births.

Human growth hormone helps promote regeneration, reproduction, and growth. Increased use of growth hormone and growth hormone awareness, which helps in the management of hormonal imbalance disorders, enhances the market growth.

In addition, many companies are investing in R&D to develop a growth hormone that has fewer side effects and will be a long-term treatment. The growth in the market is due to the increase in diseases related to growth hormone deficiency, rise in use of aging hormones, efforts taken by governments and various private organizations to spread awareness of growth hormone deficiency, and strong productivity. Other factors such as increased awareness of the treatment process, increased number of health disorders, and increased neuropsychiatric cases are projected to improve the growth of the human growth hormone market. The rapid growth of new human growth hormone novels is expected to drive the human growth hormone market growth.

The COVID-19 outbreak is anticipated to impact the global human growth hormone market. As per an article from Frontiers, the patients with decreased growth hormone secretion present a risk factor for COVID-19, which requires attention that will help in the prevention of COVID-19. Along with this, patients who are suffering from Prader-Willi syndrome also need to take enough care to minimize the risk of getting COVID-19. Moreover, Prader-Willi syndrome patients may not show typical symptoms such as a high temperature and they may also experience a higher-than-normal pain threshold which may delay in the diagnosis of COVID-19. Individuals with Turner syndrome are at higher risk for severe illness from the COVID-19 virus. The COVID-19 pandemic has stressed and impacted the healthcare systems of the world. The lockdown situation all over the world, has created obstacles for both the patients and the healthcare providers.
