Gaucher Disease Treatment Market, by Disease Type (Type 1 Gaucher disease, Type 2 Gaucher Disease, and Type 3 Gaucher Disease), by Therapy Type (Enzyme Replacement Therapy (ERT) and Substrate Reduction Therapy (SRT)), by Distribution Channel (Hospitals, Retail Pharmacies, and Online Pharmacies) and by Geography - Global Industry Insights, Trends, Outlook, and Opportunity Analysis, 2017-2025

Gaucher disease is an autosomal recessive inherited metabolism disorder where a type of fat (lipid) called glucocerebroside is unable to degrade. Body synthesis enzyme called glucocerebrosidase, which breakdowns and reprocesses glucocerebroside. Gaucher disease is caused by mutations of a single gene called GBA, which leads to very low levels of glucocerebrosidase enzyme leading to low degradation of glucocerebroside. There are three types of Gaucher disease namely: type 1, type 2, and type 3. Type 1 is the most common type of Gaucher disease while Type 2 and 3 are not as common as type 1.

Approval of novel drugs is expected to boost growth of Gaucher disease treatment market

U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved multiple drugs in last few years for the treatment of disease. In 2010, FDA approved Vpriv (velaglucerase alfa), an enzyme replacement therapy (ERT), for type 1 Gaucher disease. In 2012, Elelyso (taliglucerase alfa) and in 2014, Cerdelga (eliglustat) was approved by FDA for type 1 Gaucher disease. These drugs offer variety of options based on their requirements, in turn is expected to boost the growth of the market.

In July 2017, The European Medicines Agency (EMA) and the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) collaborated to promote the use of innovative approaches in the development of medicines for Gaucher disease. Such strategic collaboration of regulatory bodies for the development of novel innovative drugs is expected to boost the growth of Gaucher disease treatment market in near future. Lack of awareness regarding the symptoms, diagnosis, and treatment of disease among rural population is a major factor restraining market growth.
