Factors Responsible for Growth and In-Depth Analysis?

The prostate gland (the prostate) is an organ of the male reproductive system. The three most common forms of prostate disease are inflammation (prostatitis), non-cancerous enlargement of the prostate (benign prostatic hyperplasia or BPH), and prostate cancer. Benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) is defined as a medical condition affecting men. It involves the non-cancerous enlargement of the prostate gland. While BPH rarely shows symptoms before the age of 40, the risk of contracting BPH increases with age. The condition affects nearly 50% of men between the ages of 51 and 60 and up to 90% of men older than 80. Treatment measures such as medications and surgery have been used for patients with BPH.

The growth in the market is majorly driven by the increasing prevalence of benign prostatic hyperplasia, increasing obesity, investments, funds, and grants for research in BPH treatment, rising prevalence of prostate cancer, increasing demand for hormone therapy drugs, emerging therapies for prostate cancer, and the increasing incidence of prostatitis. Data from the Health Insurance Review and Assessment (HIRA) agency in 2018 revealed that nearly 7,600,000 patients were diagnosed with BPH in 2010, which increased by ~1.2 million in 2017. This represents an annual increase of about 7% and a total increase of 58% from 2010. Obesity and BPH are closely associated. Obesity leads to several mechanisms such as increased sympathetic nervous activity, altered endocrine status, increased intra-abdominal pressure, increased inflammation process, and oxidative stress, which are favorable conditions for the development of BPH.

Industry Segmentation:

Neurostimualtion devices to register the highest share in the type market

Based on disease indication, the prostate health market is segmented into prostate cancer, benign prostate hyperplasia, and prostatitis. In 2020, prostate cancer accounted for the largest share in the prostate health market. Typically, hormone therapy is considered an effective option as the first line of treatment for prostate cancer. Cancer vaccines, radiopharmaceutical agents, secondary hormone therapies, or chemotherapies follow hormonal therapy as treatment options. Cancerous cells are found to be developing a resistance to these therapies after some months, as a result of which immunotherapies are expected to be adopted widely for the treatment of prostate cancer in the near future.
