The global hormone replacement therapy is expected to witness significant growth over the forecast period. Rising prevalence of hormonal deficiencies due to the increasing geriatric population is expected to drive the demand for hormone replacement therapy. Additionally, increasing consumer awareness about benefits of the treatment in managing menopausal symptoms is further expected to propel the market growth. However, risks and side effects associated with long-term use of hormone replacement therapy such as blood clots, heart attacks, and breast cancer could hamper the market growth.

Market Driver – Increasing Product Launches by Key Market Players

Market players are involved in launching new drugs and this is expected to drive growth of the global hormone replacement therapy market over the forecast period. For instance, in October 2021, Theramex, a pharmaceutical company, announced that it had launched Bijuva/Bijuve (estradiol and progesterone) across Europe and the U.K. Bijuva/Bijuve (estradiol and progesterone) is the first and only body-identical combined hormone therapy treatment for post-menopausal women.

Increasing Prevalence of Various Chronic Conditions

Increasing prevalence of chronic conditions such as hypogonadism in adult men worldwide is expected to drive growth of the hormone replacement therapy market. For instance, in June 2021, according to the European Association of Urology, male hypogonadism is a disorder associated with decreased functional activity of the testes, with decreased production and/or action of androgens and/or impaired sperm production. This is caused by poor testicular function or as a result of inadequate stimulation of the testes by the hypothalamic-pituitary-gonadal (HPG) axis. Likewise, several congenital or acquired disorders causing impaired action of androgens have also been described. In men aged between 40 and 79 years old, the incidence of symptomatic hypogonadism varies between 2.1% and 5.7%. The incidence of hypogonadism has been reported to be 12.3 and 11.7 cases per 1,000 people per year in the U.S. Testosterone production declines as a function of age, and the prevalence of hypogonadism increases with aging.

Market Challenges – Side Effects of Hormone Replacement Therapy

One of the major factors hindering the growth of the global hormone replacement therapy market is various side effects associated with these therapies. Hormone replacement therapies aim to alleviate symptoms of menopause by compensating for the loss of estrogen and progesterone, however, in doing so they can also cause undesirable side effects in many patients. Common side effects include breast tenderness, headaches, nausea, mood changes, and weight gain. More serious potential side effects include increased risks of blood clots, stroke, and certain types of cancers like breast and endometrial cancer. The risk of side effects has led many patients to avoid hormone replacement therapies or stop treatment prematurely. For example, data from the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey conducted between 2015 and 2018 showed over 25% of U.S. women who started hormone replacement therapy discontinued use within the first year, often citing side effects and safety concerns. This skepticism around long-term use means the market relies heavily on new patients needing short-term symptom relief, rather than retention of patients on ongoing treatment regimens. Manufacturers have struggled to convince those who experienced side effects to continue usage or to attract those wary of potential issues.

Market Opportunities – Government Support for Research and Development Activities

Increasing government support for research and development activities is expected to offer lucrative growth opportunities over the forecast period. For instance, in July 2021, Clinical Gerontology Branch, NIA Division of Geriatrics and Clinical Gerontology funded scientists were working to answer the several questions about the health impacts of menopause. Researchers continued to gather evidence on hormone therapy. Both the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists and the North American Menopause Society provide guidance to clinicians on the use of hormone therapy to treat vasomotor symptoms related to menopause, including identifying the most appropriate dose and formulation that would involve the least risk. Financial help by non-governmental organizations such as the National Gaucher Society help patients receive enzyme replacement therapy that is costly.

Insights, By Therapy Type: Increasing Product Launch

The therapy type segment includes estrogen replacement therapy, human growth hormone (HGH) replacement therapy, thyroid replacement therapy, testosterone replacement therapy, and others. The human growth hormone (HGH) replacement therapy sub-segment is estimated to hold 35.6% of the market share in 2024 owing to increasing product launch. For instance, in May 2022, Lindora Wellness, Inc., a medically supervised health and fitness organization, launched Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT). Lindora, which operates 33 medically based weight loss and wellness clinics in Southern California in the U.S., had been a leader in weight loss and wellness for more than five decades. Over the last five years, the company has introduced a number of new, innovative wellness services including body composition analyses, body contouring and cryotherapy. This new program of hormonal replacement therapy launched by the Lindora Wellness, Inc. is anticipated to drive the global hormone replacement therapy market growth.

Insights, By Route of Administration: Oral Administration Steals Limelight Driven by Convenience

The route of administration segment includes oral, parenteral, and others. The oral sub-segment is estimated to hold 32.4% of the market share in 2024 owing to convenience advantages. The hormone replacement therapy landscape has seen a persistent shift away from parenteral routes towards oral medications. Various formulations in development focus on oral drug delivery to tap into these perceived benefits driving its popularity. The dominance of the oral administration segment therefore stems primarily from heightened convenience and discretion it provides patients.

Insights, By End User: Specialized Hospitals Lead Uptake Concentrated Services

The end user segment includes hospital pharmacies, retail pharmacies, and online pharmacies. The hospital pharmacies sub-segment is estimated to hold 43.1% of the market share in 2024 owing to their specialized expertise. Hormone replacement usually demands oversight from experienced endocrinologists involved in complex diagnoses and treatment planning. Hospitals are better equipped than other channels to handle the multifaceted requirements of HRT. They employ trained staff across departments to efficiently manage the entire treatment cycle from consultation and testing to dispensing therapies and monitoring patient response. This level of integrated care helps address issues often underlying hormonal imbalance. Their consultative role additionally creates greater confidence and adherence to long-term HRT management. Hence, their concentrated clinical services remain irreplaceable for streamlining specialized HRT services.
