High Incidence and prevalence of osteoporosis coupled with growth in geriatric population: Key Driver

Rising prevalence of osteoporosis is considered an important driver of the market, as more patients would increase demand for the drugs. Moreover, due to absence of any substantial substitute, such as surgery, demand for osteoporosis drugs is increasing constantly.

For instance, according to International Osteoporosis Foundation, Osteoporosis causes more than 8.9 million fractures annually, resulting in an osteoporotic fracture every 3 seconds and also it is estimated to affect 200 million women globally.

Furthermore, rising geriatric population is considered an important factor for growth of the market in coming years. Individuals above 50 years of age are at the greatest risk of developing osteoporosis and related fractures due to hormonal changes.

The number of people aged 65 years and above is projected to increase from 524 million in 2010 to approximately 1.5 billion in 2050. This high proportion of geriatric population is more prone to osteoporosis.

Patent expiry of blockbuster drugs and dynamic changes in pricing due to generics restrain market growth

Patent expiry and loss of exclusivity are considered major restraints of the osteoporosis drugs market. As the generic equivalents of branded drugs are manufactured and marketed at 1/10th of the price of the original branded drug, loss of patent exclusivity of a branded drug results in drastic revenue reduction amounting to almost 35% – 40% in the first year.

This low cost of generics results in higher consumption, although, generic drugs are not able to achieve or exceed the overall sales of the branded formulation.
