Osteoporosis, meaning porous bones, causes bones to become brittle and weak, which, in severe cases, can cause a fracture by even mild stress, such as that of sneezing, coughing, or bending over. The disease leads to deterioration of the bone tissue, low bone mass, and disruption of the bone microarchitecture. It is the most common bone-related disease in humans and represents a primary health concern. Osteoporosis is more common in women, Caucasians, and older people. Other than this, it affects all races and both sexes, and its prevalence only increases with age. The disease cannot be diagnosed until a fracture occurs, which is another cause of concern.
The different drug types that are utilized for the management of osteoporosis are calcitonin, bisphosphonates, rank ligand inhibitor, parathyroid hormone therapy, and selective estrogen receptor modulator. Out of all these, the demand for bisphosphonates was the highest in the past, other than which, the demand for rank ligand inhibitors is also expected to grow significantly in the near future. As the migration rate to urban cities is surging all across the globe, the prevalence of unhealthy eating habits and lifestyle is growing as well. This is further leading to the growing incidence of osteoporosis.
Furthermore, several companies in the domain are working towards developing better and efficient drugs as the need for better osteoporotic care is surging across the globe. Companies are increasingly collaborating with academic institutes, government research organizations, and patient organizations for advancing their drug developing activities. While North America has been the major consumer of osteoporosis drugs in the past, the demand for these drugs is expected to grow considerably in Asia-Pacific, making it the fastest-growing osteoporosis drugs market. This is particularly because of the surging aging population with osteoporosis and unhealthy living style in the region.
