Hypothyroidism Market Trends

Rising prevalence of thyroid disorder is driving the market growth

Market CAGR for hypothyroidism is driven by the rising number of thyroid disorders. Due to the increased prevalence of thyroid gland problems, the market for treatments for these conditions is anticipated to expand rapidly. Thyroid therapies are becoming increasingly popular on the market, both in developed and developing nations. The vendors are concentrating on the underdeveloped rising markets in the Middle East, Africa, China, and India. About 10% of Indian adults had hypothyroidism as of October 2020. Research indicates that women are more inclined to acquire hypothyroidism between the ages of 46 and 54. Several domestic and international suppliers target high-potential rising nations, including Novartis AG, Pfizer Inc., and Merck & Co., Inc. The aforementioned elements will accelerate market expansion within the anticipated time frame.

Around 5.5%–6% of people worldwide suffer from subclinical thyroid problems. Due to a lack of knowledge, 50% of people with thyroid issues go undetected. Governmental and non-governmental organizations are increasingly initiating public awareness campaigns to raise knowledge of rapid diagnosis and treatment of thyroid gland problems. These programs aim to inform the public about quickly detecting early symptoms that might evolve into complex thyroid disorders. For instance, the AACE began its UP To Here Campaign in January 2020. The campaign's goal is to raise public awareness of thyroid conditions. These camps were designed to inform attendees of the higher risk of acquiring thyroid disorders, their prevalence, and the availability of programs to educate and avoid the condition.  International Thyroid Awareness Week is observed each November around the world. The aforementioned elements will accelerate market expansion within the anticipated time frame. Thus, driving the hypothyroidism market revenue.

Hypothyroidism Market Segment Insights

Hypothyroidism Type Insights

The  hypothyroidism market segmentation, based on type, includes primary hypothyroidism, secondary hypothyroidism, and tertiary hypothyroidism. The primary hypothyroidism segment dominated the market, accounting for 46.5% of market revenue (1.00 Billion). Low blood thyroid hormone levels resulting from thyroid gland degeneration are known as primary hypothyroidism. Fatigue, sadness, constipation, and modest weight gain are among the nonspecific symptoms of primary hypothyroidism that are typically present. Subclinical illness is typical. Physical examination may reveal bradycardia, thick tongue, swollen eyelids, and dry skin. Furthermore, in 2022, tertiary hypothyroidism was the fastest-growing sector in the market. In tertiary hypothyroidism, insufficient thyrotropin-releasing hormone (TRH) production from the hypothalamus produces insufficient thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH) release, resulting in insufficient thyroid stimulation. But this is uncommon. Iodine deficiency continues to be the leading contributor to hypothyroidism in the world.

Hypothyroidism Diagnosis & Treatment Insights

The  hypothyroidism market segmentation, based on diagnosis & treatment, includes diagnosis and treatment. In 2022, the diagnosis segment dominated the market. The need for an efficient diagnostic method for the early detection of thyroid problems has increased due to the increasing prevalence of thyroid illnesses worldwide. Typically, thyroid exams are done to assess thyroid function and look for conditions like hypothyroidism or hyperthyroidism. A blood test is used to quantify TSH, T4, T3, and free T4 in a blood sample to assess the body's quantity of thyroid hormone production. Additionally, the treatment sector acquired a significant share of the market. Due to more doctors prescribing this class of medication ly, this category is anticipated to rise. Liothyronine and Levothyroxine are the two main medication groups used to treat hypothyroidism.

Hypothyroidism Route of Administration Insights

The  hypothyroidism market segmentation, based on the route of administration, includes oral and intravenous. The oral segment acquired a major market share in 2022. The oral sector predominated the market due to the creation of new medicines and a strong pipeline. High efficacy, a greater bioavailability rate, and quick medication administration likely drive segment expansion. Drugs with a medium to high oral bioavailability can be effectively administered orally. Oral medicines lessen the need for central lines for administering intravenous drugs, lowering the risk of complications and length of hospital stay. Also, the intravenous segment saw considerable growth. Even for severe hypothyroidism, intramuscular therapy is effective. People with poor compliance brought on by self-neglect, cognitive decline, or inadequate gastric absorption may find it very useful.
