Hypotonia Market Scenario

The Hypotonia Market is expected to reach USD 261.6 Million by 2030 at 8.2% CAGR during the forecast period 2022-2030.Hypotonia is also known as floppy baby syndrome, or weakness of muscles and lack of muscle tone.   There are two main types of hypotonia – Acquired hypotonia in which hypotonia develops after birth as the result of an underlying medical condition, injury or trauma; and congenital hypotonia in which hypotonia is present at birth. Hypotonia is a symptom rather than a condition. Major causes of hypotonia can either be neurological or non-neurological.

Hypotonia is characterized with diminished muscle tone. The infant or child with hypotonic cerebral palsy appears floppy like a rag doll, hence the name. Hypotonic cerebral palsy is the result of an injury or malformation at an earlier brain developmental stage than that which causes spastic or choreoathetoid cerebral palsy. There are various causes of cerebral palsy which includes brain injury or brain malformation that occurs while the brain is developing i.e before, during, or after birth. As a result of the brain damage, during brain development, a child's muscle control, muscle coordination, muscle tone, reflex, posture and balance can be affected.

Neurological problems present at birth which affect a child's movement and co-ordination of brain and spinal cord injury including bleeding in the brain.

According to the World Health Organization estimates, neurological disorders are responsible for 4.5%-11% of all illnesses in the world including low or high income economies. This is far higher as compared to the number of respiratory ailments, gastrointestinal disorders, or cancers, and the burden is expected to increase further over the coming years.

However, limited availability of facilities and higher treatment cost may hamper the hypotonia market growth during the forecast period.
