Polycystic ovary syndrome is reproductive disorder observed during reproductive age of females. Polycystic ovarian syndrome is depicted by hyperandrogenism, polycystic ovaries and anovulation. There is no cure for polycystic ovarian syndrome. Medical treatments aim to manage and reduce the symptoms or consequences of having polycystic ovarian syndrome with medication for menstrual cycle regulation, infertility treatment, insulin resistance treatment, weight loss treatment and hyperandrogenism. Polycystic ovarian syndrome occurs both in normal-weight and overweight women. However, factors such as insulin resistance (IR), type 2 diabetes, obesity, and cardiovascular disease enhances the chances of polycystic ovarian syndrome occurrence. The factors driving polycystic ovarian syndrome treatment market are increasing funds and grants for research for novel treatment, increasing product approval and pipeline candidates, disease prevalence and high prevalence of risk prone population.

Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome Treatment Market – Driver

For instance, in 2016, Millendo Therapeutics, Inc., a biopharmaceutical company, entered into an exclusive license agreement with AstraZeneca for the development and commercialization of phase II entered AZD4901, a candidate product for the treatment of polycystic ovarian syndrome. Moreover, in 2017, Astellas Pharma Inc. completed its acquisition of Ogeda SA (formerly Euroscreen S.A.). The acquisition will expand Astellas’ clinical pipeline with fezolinetant, oral compaound for NK3 receptor target. Fezolinetant was in phase IIa clinical trials for the  treatment of menopausal hot flashes, polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) and uterine fibroids. Moreover, product approval by various approval bodies will expand the treatment option and in turn leading to the market growth. For instance, in 2014, EffRx Pharmaceuticals SA, got US FDA approval for its proprietary metformin-based product candidate, EX404, for pediatric polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS).

Increasing funding for research and development of novel treatment will also enhance the polycystic ovarian syndrome treatment market during the forecast period.

The grant is dedicated to research in endometriois, uterine fibroids and polycystic ovarian syndrome. Further, grants for the treatment of polycystic ovarian syndrome will fuel the market growth. For instance, in 2017, as part of a multi-year endowment from PCOS Diva, the nonprofit organization PCOS Challenge, Inc. will be offering grants up to $500 to help women and girls struggling with hair and skin issues related to polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS).

High incidence of polycystic ovarian syndrome is expected to be the key driver for the polycystic ovarian syndrome treatment market. For instance, according to article published in 2014 of Clinical Epidemiology, polycystic ovarian syndrome affects 8 – 20 % of the reproductive-age women, globally. According to World Health Organization, in year 2012 the estimated number of polycystic ovarian syndrome is 116 million worldwide.

Moreover, increasing prevalence of insulin resistance (IR), type 2 diabetes, obesity, and cardiovascular disease fuel the polycystic ovarian syndrome market. According to article published in Lancet, globally, prevalence of overweight and obesity combined has risen by 27.5% for adults between 1980 and 2013.  Moreover, according to data by the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES), 2013–2014, in the United States the percentage of obesity is higher in women, i.e. 40 %, than in men, 35%.
