Thalassemia, specifically the beta thalassemia disorder, is majorly caused by the mutation within the Hemoglobin Subunit Beta (HBB) gene. For instance, at least 5.2% of the world population and over 7% of pregnant women have a chance to develop a beta thalassemia.
Additionally, beta thalassemia is a blood disease that lowers the production of hemoglobin. In people with beta thalassemia, low levels of hemoglobin cause a scarcity of oxygen in many parts of the body.
Affected individuals even have a shortage of red blood cells (anemia) that causes pale skin, weakness, fatigue, and more serious complications. People with beta thalassemia are at the risk of developing abnormal blood clots.

Increasing prevalence of the disease globally with none viable treatment options available for curing the disease; this factor is anticipated to drive the beta thalassemia treatment market growth. Moreover, Growth within the evolution of pipeline drugs and also the development of the latest therapies due to R&D activities and investments by the various authorities.
Meanwhile, increasing awareness regarding available treatment options for the treatment of thalassemia is anticipated to drive the expansion of the beta thalassemia treatment market. Additionally, the rise in demand for improved curative gene therapy is predicted to drive the expansion of the beta thalassemia treatment market.
Lack of viable treatment options commercialized for the treatment of disease rather than the symptoms associated with the disease; this factor is estimated to restrain the beta thalassemia treatment market growth. However, the High cost of treatment for the disorder is hampering the beta thalassemia treatment market growth.
Beta thalassemia Treatment Market: Overview
The global beta thalassemia treatment market is estimated to experience significant growth during the forecast period. Large population, increase in awareness about available treatment options, and rise in demand for improved curative gene therapies are a variety of the lucrative factors estimated for the further growth of the beta thalassemia treatment market
Thalassemia is a rare hereditary blood disorder characterized by the production of abnormal hemoglobin, which is in charge of the destruction of red blood cells, leading to anemia.
Blood transfusion and iron chelation therapies are the only real treatment options available nowadays. This offers rise to ample opportunities within the marketplace for the event of a universal curative treatment for thalassemia.
Beta thalassemia Treatment Market: Regional Wise Outlook
Geographically, the beta thalassemia treatment market is segmented into seven regions viz. South Asia, East Asia, Europe, Latin America, North America, Oceania, and the Middle East and Africa.
