Hydrocortisone Market Size, Share, Growth, Trends, Consumption, Revenue, Company Analysis, Regional Insights and Forecast 2021-2030

Published Date : Nov 2020 | No. of Pages : 200 Pages | Category : Healthcare

The global hydrocortisone market size was valued at US$ 1.1 Bn in 2020 and expected to reach US$ 2.1 billion by 2030, expanding at a CAGR of 4.2% from 2021 to 2030. Rise in cases of adrenocortical insufficiency and increase in investment in research & development are projected to drive the global hydrocortisone market during the forecast period.

Adrenal insufficiency is a serious pathologic condition characterized by decreased production or action of glucocorticoids and/or mineralocorticoids and adrenal androgens. Prevalence of chronic primary adrenal insufficiency in Europe has been doubled from 40 to 70 cases per million population in the 1960s to 93 to 144 cases per million population by the end of 2017. Increase in incidence of chronic diseases of liver, heart, kidneys, and pancreas; and blood disorders have augmented the demand for glucocorticoids such as hydrocortisone.

Rise in Healthcare Spending to Drive Global Market

Increase in patient awareness about personal health boosts the demand for vitamin supplements. Patients are more aware and proactive about their health and are willing to seek a physician's advice at an early stage. Increase in per capita disposable income is encouraging people to spend more on healthcare facilities, which in turn fuels the global hydrocortisone market. Advertisements have increased public visibility of new treatments, thereby generating interest among chronic patients.

Home Treatment for Children Sparks Innovations in Intramuscular Preparations of Hydrocortisone

Several children are prone to the risks of adrenal insufficiency, since they are unable to mount an endogenous cortisol response to stress. Such children usually receive treatment at home by seeking telephone advices from doctors. Thus, companies in the hydrocortisone market should tap into opportunities in child care to broaden their revenue streams.

Many children are administered oral corticosteroids such as hydrocortisone, dexamethasone, and prednisolone on a daily basis since adrenocortical insufficiency is potentially life threatening. Problems arising from such medical conditions have fueled the demand for steroid medicines that are generally administered intramuscularly or intravenously, depending on the severity of the clinical situation. Companies in the hydrocortisone market are increasing the availability of hydrocortisone sodium succinate and hydrocortisone sodium phosphate for treatment of children that require extra steroids.

Dual Release Hydrocortisone Dosage Boosts Metabolism in Hypoadrenalism Patients

Companies in the hydrocortisone market are introducing medicines that do not require a prescription. For instance, in May 2019, Aflofarm— a supplier of Over the Counter drugs (OTC) and medical devices, announced the launch of Maxicortan, a medicine with double dose of hydrocortisone that can be applied locally on skin inflammations and caters to individuals with atopic dermatitis. As such, dermatitis is one the key medical indications that is creating incremental opportunities for companies in the hydrocortisone market. Therapeutic indications such as allergic contact dermatitis, urticarial, and skin reactions after insect bites are also creating revenue streams for pharmaceutical companies.

On the other hand, dual release hydrocortisone is becoming popular as a metabolism improver agent for patients with adrenal insufficiency. Healthcare professionals are recommending once daily dual release hydrocortisone to provide adequate cortisol exposure time. Since conventional GC (Glucocorticoid) therapy is associated with increased morbidity and mortality, gradual increase in the dosage of dual release hydrocortisone has helped to improve hypoadrenalism patient quality of life.

Need for Clinical Trails Validate Lowest Doses of Hydrocortisone for Shock Reversal

Septic shock is a life-threatening condition that has led to high mortality rates. Hence, clinicians recommend corticosteroids such as hydrocortisone to reduce the severity of trauma caused in patients. As such, hydrocortisone medicines are subject to intensive investigation in several clinical trials. Currently, low-dose hydrocortisone is being highly publicized for shock reversal, resulting in lesser adverse events among patients. This has led to better clinical outcomes as compared to placebo.

Although hydrocortisone aids in faster resolution of shock than placebo, the optimal dosage for hemodynamic support during septic shock is still unclear. This explains why the hydrocortisone market is progressing at a modest CAGR of 4.2% during the forecast period, due to lack of reliable clinical evidence. However, growing awareness about the lowest initial dose of hydrocortisone in adults is helping to revive growth for the hydrocortisone market. This awareness is increasing as a result of the rise in the number of randomized clinical trials.

Adrenocortical Insufficiency to Remain Key Indication

Based on indication, the global hydrocortisone market has been divided into adrenocortical insufficiency, adrenergic syndrome, high blood calcium, thyroiditis, rheumatoid arthritis, dermatitis, asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), and others. Hydrocortisone is the first line of treatment for the management of adrenocortical insufficiency, thus contributing to the significant share held by the segment. Adrenogenital disorder is a genetic condition limiting hormone production in the adrenal glands. Hydrocortisone is utilized to replace and correct the deficiency of adrenal hormones.

Topical Route of Administration to be Highly Preferred

In terms of route of administration, the global hydrocortisone market has been classified into parenteral, oral, topical, and rectal. The oral segment accounted for a major share of the global hydrocortisone market in 2020. This can be attributed to the fact that most products under the hydrocortisone therapy segment available in the marketplace are administered orally, due to convenience and better patient compliance with the therapy. The topical segment is expected to expand at a lucrative pace during the forecast period. Increase in patient population with skin disorders such as dermatitis is anticipated to drive the segment during the forecast period.

North America to Dominate Global Market

In terms of region, the global hydrocortisone market has been segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, and Middle East & Africa. North America dominated the global hydrocortisone market in 2020, followed by Europe. North America dominated the global hydrocortisone market in 2020. The region is projected to maintain its dominance and is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 4.2% during the forecast period. North America’s dominance in the global market can be primarily attributed to high rate of adoption of treatment in a number of indication in the region.
