Orphan Drugs Market

The global orphan drugs market is growing at a rapid pace. The market growth attributes to the growing prevalence of rare but serious, life-threatening disorders, such as human papillomavirus (HPV) and HPV16-positive cervical cancer. HPV is a viral infection that causes skin/ mucous membrane growths (warts) and different types of cancer. Also, increasing numbers of geriatric populaces contribute to market growth significantly.

Moreover, the reimbursement recommendations and rebates to encourage the production of ODs escalate the market growth to furthered height. The orphan pharmaceuticals market was worth USD 160.78 billion in 2021 and is expected to increase to USD 355.00 billion by 2030, at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 9.20% over the forecast period (2022 – 2030).

HTA Reforms and the demand for breakthrough diagnostics and treatment procedures act as a significant driving force behind the growth of the market. Besides, government initiatives that aim to spread awareness and development programs of orphan drugs positively impact market growth.

Conversely, the high production cost of ODs is a major factor expected to impede the growth of the market. Also, the regulatory restriction on profitability hampers the market growth to a great deal.
