Global Osteoarthritis Therapeutics Market to Grow at 8.5% During 2022-2027, Spurred by Growing Geriatric Population

March 24, 2021

According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled "Osteoarthritis Therapeutics Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2022-2027," the global osteoarthritis therapeutics market reached a value of US$ 6.7 Billion in 2021. Osteoarthritis is a common medical condition that causes pain and swelling in the joints due to the progressive degeneration of cartilage in the knees, hips, hands, feet, spine, shoulders and neck. It results in loss of flexibility and impaired movement in the affected joint, along with stiffness, tenderness, grating sensation and bone spurs. Upon the detection of osteoarthritis via X-ray, arthroscopy, physical examination, joint fluid analysis, blood tests or MRI scans, prescribed medication is generally administered to the patients orally, topically or parenterally. Various physical therapies and alternative medicines can also be used to improve joint function in the affected area.

We are regularly tracking the direct effect of COVID-19 on the market, along with the indirect influence of associated industries. These observations will be integrated into the report.

Global Osteoarthritis Therapeutics Market Trends:

The global market is majorly driven by the increasing prevalence of osteoarthritis among the masses. Supported by the rising geriatric population that is more susceptible to developing arthritis, there has been an escalating need for efficient osteoarthritis therapeutics across the globe. Apart from this, the rising incidences of obesity on the global level due to unhealthy dietary preferences and the sedentary lifestyles led by individuals have increased the risks of developing osteoarthritis. The market is further driven by a rise in the incidences of injuries and accidents while participating in sports activities. Moreover, continual research and development (R&D) activities conducted by players to launch effective diagnostic and treatment solutions for osteoarthritis and rising government support for introducing novel therapies and pipeline drugs in the market are expected to create a positive outlook for the market. Several players are also aiming to re-grow cartilage using stem cells treated with molecules, which is anticipated to create numerous growth opportunities in the market. Some of the other factors contributing to the market growth include the development of imaging biomarkers based on radiographic features and continual developments to improve the overall healthcare infrastructure. On account of the aforementioned factors, the market is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 8.5% during 2022-2027.
