Growth Hormone Deficiency Market Segmentation


Global Growth Hormone Deficiency Market is segmented based on Brand, Application, Distribution Channel, and Route of Administration.


Global Growth Hormone Deficiency Market is classified into brands such as Norditropin, Genotropin, Humatrope, Saizen, Omnitrope, and others. The global growth hormone deficiency market, based on application, is segmented into pediatric growth hormone deficiency, Turner syndrome, Idiopathic Short Stature (ISS), small for gestational age, adult growth hormone deficiency, Prader-Willi syndrome, and others. Growth hormone deficiency is an endocrine disorder characterized by low or deficient secretion of growth hormone. The market growth is due to the growing prevalence of GHD, the increasing launch of drugs by prominent market players, and increasing awareness about the disease. Moreover, an increasing engagement of major market players in the development of growth hormone products is likely to drive market growth.


Global Growth Hormone Market, by route of administration, is segmented into subcutaneous, intravenous, and intramuscular. The subcutaneous segment held a major market share of 43.8% in 2019 and, whereas the intramuscular segment was the fastest-growing segment over the review period of 2020 to 2027. The subcutaneous route segment accounted for a market share of 43.8% in 2019 and is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 3.92% during the forecast period. The segment growth is increasing as it leads to a significant rise in growth rates in patients and a low incidence of antibody development. The majority of the GHD drugs are administered through the subcutaneous route of administration. For instance, brands such as Norditropin, Genotropin, Humatrope, Omnitrope, Nutropin, and Saizen are administered subcutaneously. This route of administration, injections, is reported to be less painful and easier to self-administer. It is also the preferred route of administration in children and adults, eventually by means of the easy-to-use pen-type delivery devices (e.g., Novo Nordisk Norditropin FlexPro Pen; Eli Lilly Humatrope Pen). Moreover, the subcutaneous route is highly preferred for chronic growth hormone therapy. These advantages of the subcutaneous route of administration over other routes are propelling the growth of this segment.


Global Growth Hormone Market is segmented by the distribution channel into hospital pharmacies, retail pharmacies, online pharmacies, and specialty pharmacies. The hospital pharmacies segment accounted for a major market share of 40.8% in 2019 and is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 3.92% during the assessment period. Recombinant growth hormone is a prescription medication made available only with a prescription of physician.
