Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) Market Dynamics

Advancements in Research and Developments Drive the Growth of the Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis Market

Research and development activities have led to the development of innovative therapies for ALS. This includes the exploration of gene therapy, stem cell therapy, and neuroprotective agents that aim to slow down disease progression, improve symptom management, and potentially provide disease-modifying effects. The introduction of these novel therapies expands the treatment options available to patients and drives market growth.

Ongoing research efforts aim to deepen the understanding of ALS, including its underlying causes, genetic factors, and disease progression mechanisms. Advancements in this area help researchers identify new therapeutic targets and develop more effective treatment approaches.

For instance, on April 25, 2023, Biogen Inc. announced that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved QALSODY (tofersen) 100 mg/15mL injection for the treatment of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) in adults who have a mutation in the superoxide dismutase 1 (SOD1) gene. This indication is approved under accelerated approval based on a reduction in plasma neurofilament light chain (NfL) observed in patients treated with QALSODY. 

Rising Awareness Drives the Growth of the Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis Market

Awareness campaigns empower ALS patients and their caregivers to become active advocates for their own care. Patient advocacy groups work tirelessly to raise awareness about ALS, improve access to healthcare services, and influence policy decisions. These efforts help amplify the voices of ALS patients, ensure their needs are considered, and drive positive change in the healthcare system. Through awareness, patients can navigate the complex healthcare landscape more effectively, access relevant resources, and participate in clinical trials or research studies.

For instance, Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) Awareness Month has been observed in May in the U.S. since 1992. This year’s efforts will continue to unite and support those living with the neurodegenerative disease, which is estimated to impact around 30,000 people in the U.S., with about 5,000 new cases being diagnosed each year.

Limited Treatment Options Will Hamper the Growth of the Market

With limited treatment options, the potential market size for ALS therapies is constrained. The lack of a curative or transformative therapy narrows the patient population that can benefit from specific treatments, limiting the market's reach and growth prospects.

The limited treatment options create a less competitive market environment. With fewer approved therapies, there may be reduced competition among pharmaceutical companies, leading to less innovation and slower progress in treatment development. This lack of competition can hinder market growth and limit advancements in therapeutic options.

Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) Market Segment Analysis

The global amyotrophic lateral sclerosis market is segmented based on drug type, treatment type, end-user, and region.

The Edaravone (Radicava) Segment Accounted for Approximately 36.7% of the Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis Market Share

Being an approved and widely used drug for ALS, Edaravone has gained significant market share within the drug segment. Its dominance can be attributed to its specific indication for ALS treatment, its demonstrated effectiveness, and its availability in various markets. 

Edaravone, the active ingredient in Radicava, is a free-radical scavenger, meaning it helps to remove the reactive molecules that can contribute to oxidative stress. By removing these toxic molecules and lowering oxidative stress, it is expected to reduce nerve damage and slow ALS progression. The effective action and wide acceptance and availability of edaravone can lead to market dominance.

For instance, on February 10, 2023, Mitsubishi Tanabe Pharma Canada, Inc., a subsidiary of Mitsubishi Tanabe Pharma America, Inc. announced that RADICAVA Oral Suspension, the oral formulation of RADICAVA IV(edaravone), is commercially available in Canada for the treatment of patients with ALS.

Global Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) Market Geographical Penetration

North America Accounted for Approximately 40.4% of the Market Share in 2022, Owing to the Advanced Healthcare Infrastructure and Technological Advancements

North America, particularly the United States and Canada, possess well-developed healthcare systems with robust infrastructure, including hospitals, specialty Specialty Clinics, research institutions, and rehabilitation centers. This infrastructure facilitates the diagnosis, treatment, and management of ALS patients, driving market growth.

North America is at the forefront of technological advancements in medical devices, diagnostic tools, and assistive technologies. These innovations play a critical role in enhancing the quality of life for ALS patients. Advanced mobility aids, communication devices, respiratory support systems, and other assistive technologies are readily available in the region, contributing to market dominance.
