The global osteoarthritis therapeutics market grew at a CAGR of around 8% during 2014-2019. Osteoarthritis (OA) is a heterogeneous condition characterized by progressive degeneration of cartilage in joints of the knees, hips, hands, feet, spine, shoulders and neck. OA generally leads to stiffness, swelling, tenderness, persistent pain, loss of flexibility, grating sensation, bone spurs and sleep disturbances. It can be diagnosed using physical examination, X-ray, arthroscopy, joint fluid analysis, blood tests and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scan. Various medications and surgical procedures are prescribed as per the different results to alleviate the signs and symptoms of the disease. Currently, alternative medicines, physical therapies and supportive devices are available in the market to relieve pain and improve joint function.
Sedentary lifestyles, unhealthy dietary patterns and the rising prevalence of obesity and blood sugar are increasing the risk of developing OA among individuals. This, in confluence with the growing geriatric population, which is more susceptible to such ailments, represents one of the key factors impelling the market growth. Apart from this, the easy access to MRI scans is acting as another major growth-inducing factor. Additionally, the development of imaging biomarkers based on radiographic features, coupled with the introduction of analgesic drugs, is contributing to the market growth. Furthermore, rising investments in the research and development (R&D) activities to launch new diagnostics and biomarkers, along with the increasing expenditures on improving healthcare infrastructure, is also driving the market. For instance, disease-modifying drugs are under development, which focus on proinflammatory cytokines for treating cartilage breakdown. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the global osteoarthritis therapeutics market to continue its moderate growth during the next five years.
