Lysosomal Acid Lipase (LAL) Deficiency Treatment Market, by Therapy Type (Liver Transplant and Hematopoietic Stem Cell Transplant), By Drug Type (Statins and Other Dyslipidemia Drugs and Sebelipase Alfa (Kanuma)), By Disease Indication (Wolman Disease and Cholesteryl Ester Storage Disease (CESD)), and By Geography - Global Industry Insights, Trends, Outlook, and Opportunity Analysis, 2025

Lysosomal acid lipase (LAL) deficiency is a rare inherited condition in which the body is not able to produce enough lysosomal acid lipase (LAL) enzyme, which is an important enzyme for breakdown of fatty materials namely cholesteryl esters and triglycerides. This results in building up of a large amount of fatty material in body organs, which include spleen, liver, and gut. The deficiency of LAL causes two autosomal recessive disorders, Wolman disease (WD) and Cholesteryl Ester Storage Disease (CESD). LAL deficiency is caused due to the genetic mutation in LIPA gene, which results in decrease or loss of Lysosomal Acid Lipase (LAL) enzyme.

FDA approval of innovative drugs is expected to fuel the growth of Lysosomal Acid Lipase (LAL) Deficiency Treatment Market

The approval of innovative drugs by Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is expected to augment the growth of market. In 2015 the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved Alexion Pharmaceutical’s Kanuma (sebelipase alfa), an innovative enzyme replacement therapy (ERT). Kanuma is first approved therapy that treats the underlying cause of the disease. It is the only therapy for the treatment of LAL deficiency. As it is the only available therapy in market, kanuma is expected to have a significant market growth in the near future. According to the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) 2016, around 50% of patients suffering from lysosomal acid lipase (LAL) deficiency have chances of liver complications, which includes cirrhosis or fibrosis and liver transplant. The increasing incidences of liver complications due to LAL deficiency is expected to increase demand for liver transplant, in turn fueling the growth of LAL deficiency treatment market over the forecast period. High cost and lack of awareness about diagnosis and treatment among people is the major restraint for the growth of Lysosomal Acid Lipase (LAL) Deficiency treatment market.
