Acute spinal cord injury therapeutics market to register slow growth

Press Release   •   Jul 10, 2012 09:50 BST

The acute spinal cord injury therapeutics market expected to register slow growth, and has been forecast to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of approximately 1% to 2019, growing from a market value of £6 million in 2011, to be worth $6.5 million in 2019.

Spinal cord injury refers to damage to the spinal cord which results in the loss of mobility and feeling. The classification of spinal cord injury into acute and chronic phases is based on the period of time the patient has suffered with the condition.

The absence of effective treatment options within the acute spinal cord injury therapeutics market clearly signifies that current competition in the market is weak.

Therefore, significant opportunity exists for novel products that can provide better treatment, and offer better recovery from injury.

The acute spinal cord injury therapeutics market is expected to record sluggish growth due to the lack of approved therapies, the early stages of all molecules in clinical development, and the indication by Key Opinion Leaders that the incidence of acute spinal cord injury cases has remained stable in the immediate past, with this trend likely to continue in the market into the near future.

It has been predicted that there are currently 14 molecules in the pipeline, all of which are first-in-class. These new inventions aim to protect surviving nerve cells from additional damage, and stimulate the re-growth and connection of axons, showing strong potential to offer better options for the treatment of acute spinal cord injury than those available at present.
