Postmenopausal osteoporosis is caused due to estrogen deficiency, which is the most common type of osteoporosis. Estrogen deficiency results in an increase in bone turnover owing to effects on all types of bone cells. The imbalance in bone formation and resorption has effects on trabecular bone (loss of connectivity) and cortical bone (cortical thinning and porosity). Osteoporosis is diagnosed using bone density measurements of the lumbar spine and proximal femur. Preventive strategies to improve bone health include diet, exercise, and abstaining from smoking. Several drugs are licensed to reduce fracture risk by slowing down bone resorption (such as bisphosphonates and Denosumab) or by stimulating bone formation (such as teriparatide). Improved understanding of the cellular basis for osteoporosis has resulted in new drugs targeted to key pathways, which are under development.

Global postmenopausal osteoporosis market is estimated to be valued at US$ 4,547.8 million in 2022 and is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 4.4% during the forecast period (2022-2030).

Analysts’ Views on Global Postmenopausal Osteoporosis Market:

Postmenopausal Osteoporosis  | Coherent Market Insights

Global Postmenopausal Osteoporosis Market - Regional Analysis

Among all regions, North America is expected to dominate the global market over the forecast period owing to the guidance by multidisciplinary organization. For instance, on September 7, 2021, The North American Menopause Society (NAMS), a nonprofit, multidisciplinary organization, released a new position statement outlining the organization’s guidance for the management of osteoporosis in postmenopausal women. The statements recommend the use of T-score at the hip as an appropriate target for guiding therapy choices, as current evidence suggests bone mineral density measured on-treatment correlates with the patient’s risk of fracture. The statement also outlines differing treatment approaches for women at very high risk of fracture, which calls for beginning treatment with a bone-building agent followed by an anti-remodeling agent, such as bisphosphonates and Denosumab.

The Europe region is expected to hold second largest postion in all region over the forecast period. For instance, on May 25, 2022, The U.K. National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) recommended the sclerostin inhibitor romosozumab as a treatment option for postmenopausal patients in England and Wales who have had a major osteoporotic fracture in previous 24 months. Romosozumab represents the first new class of drug available for the treatment of osteoporosis in nearly 10 years and is the first osteoporosis drug to both reduce bone resorption and stimulate bone formation. Its developers, Amgen and UCB, estimate that more than 20,000 people in England and Wales could be eligible for the treatment.

Global Postmenopausal Osteoporosis Market– Impact of Coronavirus (COVID-19) Pandemic

Since the COVID-19 virus outbreak in December 2019, the disease has spread to over 100 countries across the globe and the World Health Organization declared it a public health emergency on January 30, 2020.

COVID-19 has affected the economy in three main ways: by directly affecting the production and demand of drugs and vaccines, by creating disruptions in distribution channels, and through its financial impact on firms and financial markets. Due to nationwide lockdowns, several countries, such as China, India, Saudi Arabia, UAE, Egypt, and others, faced problems with the transportation of drugs and vaccines from one place to another.

the COVID-19 pandemic had a negative impact owing to the COVID-19 lockdown negatively impacted on adherence to Denosumab therapy. The COVID-19 pandemic has negatively impacted on clinical outcomes of osteoporotic patients with ongoing Denosumab treatment, revealing a higher prevalence of non-adherent patients and a higher number of new non-traumatic fractures (including rebound fractures) during the lockdown period in comparison to the pre-COVID-19 period, regardless of the modality of medical evaluation. Hence, tele-medicine seems to be an alternative strategy to standard face-to-face visits in guaranteeing the continuity of follow-up in osteoporotic patients and short-term compliance with Denosumab.

Global Postmenopausal Osteoporosis Market: Restraint

Side effects from postmenopausal osteoporosis treatments

The major factors that hinder the growth of the global postmenopausal osteoporosis market include side effects from postmenopausal osteoporosis treatments. For instance, on January 5, 2021, an article published in JAMA, a peer review journal, stated that bisphosphonates for postmenopausal osteoporosis frequently result in very uncommon adverse effects, like a rare thigh bone fracture and a lack of blood supply to the jawbone (osteonecrosis of the jaw) (atypical femoral fracture). The most frequent cause of jaw osteonecrosis is invasive dental work like tooth extraction. Before having this kind of treatment, women using bisphosphonates should speak with their doctor to determine whether to cease the drug. More than five years of bisphosphonate use may raise the chance of an atypical femoral fracture.

Osteoporosis is a medical condition in which the bones become brittle and fragile due to decreased bone mass and bone mineral density, leading to frequent fragility fractures. Worldwide, one in three women over the age of 50 is at risk of developing osteoporosis. It could be due to hormonal changes or a lack of calcium and vitamin D. Along with increased incidences of fractures in older, postmenopausal women, osteoporosis may often lead to mobility loss and perhaps morbidity and death. A major reason for developing this disease and the associated bone loss in women is estrogen deficiency. Other important risk factors are genetics, advanced age, being underweight, smoking, alcohol abuse, etc. Ample intake of protein, calcium, and vitamin D may help prevent postmenopausal osteoporosis without pharmacologic means. Doctors also suggest regular physical activity and avoiding smoking and alcohol consumption to lower the risk. For premenopausal women (women naturally approaching menopause) and those with low bone density and other risk factors, estrogen and drugs are recommended for improved bone density and strength.
