Growth Hormone Deficiency Market Trends



  • Rise in concern about passenger safety is driving the market growth


Human growth hormone (HGH), also known as somatotropin, is a peptide hormone that is crucial for human development because it promotes human cell growth, division, and regeneration. Insufficiency of growth hormone (GH) in humans is caused by insufficient hGH synthesis by the pituitary gland. To remedy this human deficiency, recombinant human growth hormone is subcutaneously administered. Genetic disorders including Prader-Willi syndrome and Turner syndrome, which can delay puberty and cause shorter-than-average height, can also cause growth hormone insufficiency in humans. According to data from the American Academy of Paediatrics, growth hormone deficiency in humans is a rare condition that affects less than one in 3,000 to one in 10,000 children in the U.S. Currently, hGH is extensively abused by bodybuilders, athletes, and senior citizens as an anabolic performance enhancer and anti-aging drug.


The discovery of novel growth hormone therapies is expected to be the main driver of the market for human growth hormones, along with a robust product pipeline. For instance, in September 2018, Novo Nordisk released findings from the Phase II clinical trial of Somapacitan, an investigational GH drug suggested for the treatment of paediatric growth hormone deficiency. Additionally, TransCon hGH Phase III clinical study results were made public by Ascendis Pharma A/S in May 2019. The goal of this medicine is to treat paediatric growth hormone deficiency. Similar to this, other significant companies, including Teva Pharmaceutical Industries, Ltd., OPKO Health, Inc., Eli Lilly and Company, Ferring Pharmaceuticals, Sanofi S.A., and LG Life Sciences, are actively involved in R&D activities for the development of cutting-edge HGH medications.


Campaigns made by several public and commercial groups to increase awareness of GH deficiencies and treatments for human growth hormone are also projected to have a significant impact on the market. The International Coalition of Organisations Supporting Endocrine Patients (ICOSEP), a non-profit organisation based in the United States, observes International Children's Growth Awareness Day every year to promote awareness of the value of early detection and treatment of growth hormone disorders in people, particularly children.


A growth hormone with fewer side effects that will be used as a long-term therapy is also being developed by a number of companies. The market's growth is related to the escalation of diseases brought on by the lack of this hormone. Governments and other for-profit entities continuously work to spread awareness about growth hormone deficiency and high productivity. The demand for human growth hormone drugs will rise due to other variables such increased treatment awareness and an increase in the prevalence of numerous health problems, including neuropsychiatric diseases, which will foster market expansion. The quick creation of novel compounds is anticipated to lead to an increase in the demand for human growth hormones. Thus, driving the Growth Hormone Deficiency market revenue.
