Gout Market Overview

The gout market is anticipated to reach USD 4162.5 Million by 2030 at 11.75% CAGR during the forecast period 2022-2030. A gout is a painful form of arthritis caused by the accumulation of uric acid crystals in the joints. Men are more commonly affected than women. Gout is caused by elevated uric acid levels in the blood. Certain health conditions, such as high cholesterol, high blood pressure, and drugs that promote high uric acid levels, are all major risk factors for gout. Gout can also be caused by factors such as a red meat-rich diet, obesity, and excessive alcohol intake.

Around 3 million Americans suffer from gout, which is growing increasingly widespread as a result of our sedentary lifestyle. Because the symptoms are similar to those of other illnesses, the condition is frequently misdiagnosed or disregarded. The rising prevalence of obesity, rising senior population leading to an increase in patient population, expanding cigarette smoking population, growing mass youthful population predisposed to a sedentary lifestyle, and rising desire for sophisticated treatment are all driving the worldwide gout market.
