Osteoporosis involves a condition, which results when the rate of bone tissue regeneration is much less than its breakdown, making the bones porous. Osteoporosis is more prevalent in female, where more cases occur after menopause due to decrease in estrogen hormone levels. In osteoporosis, the strength and structure of bones is affected, which increases the probability of occurrence of fractures, especially in hip region, wrists, and spine. An X-ray based scanning method, Dual Energy X-ray Absorptiometry (DEXA) or bone densitometry, is used for diagnosis of the condition. Osteoporosis has no clear symptoms, although is characterized by spine weakening and joint pain.

Anti-Osteoporosis and Fracture Healing Market Drivers

In the recent past, various regulatory bodies such as European Medicines Agency (EMA), U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency (MHRA), and others approved new drugs for treatment of osteoporosis. Approval and launch of such new drugs are expected to drive global Anti-Osteoporosis and Fracture Healing Market growth over the forecast period. For instance, in April 2017, Radius Health Inc., a biopharmaceutical company, received approval from U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for TYMLOS (abaloparatide) injection, for treating postmenopausal women with osteoporosis who are at high risk of fracture. This drug reduces the occurrence of spinal cord and peripheral skeleton fractures in postmenopausal women.

Furthermore, key players are launching new treatment methods for osteoporosis in the market. For instance, in January 2016 Ahn-Gook Pharmaceutical Co., Ltd., a South Korea based pharmaceutical company, received approval from the Korean Ministry of Food and Drug Safety (MFDS) for marketing of Binosto buffered alendronate in Korea. Alendronate reduces bone loss and buffering reduces the exposure of stomach and esophagus to acidified alendronate. Such new product launches are expected to fuel global Anti-Osteoporosis and Fracture Healing Market growth over the forecast period.
