Frontotemporal Disorders Treatment Market

Frontotemporal Disorders Treatment Market: Government Initiatives to Advance Neurological Disease Treatments Fuelling Revenue Growth: Global Industry Analysis 2013 - 2017 and Opportunity Assessment 2018 - 2028

Increasing FTD Drug Development Grants and Funding by Non-Profit Organisations

Non-profit organizations, disease advocacy and private organizations currently are focusing on to support the frontotemporal disorders treatment drug development as the patient base of FTD is expanding. Research funding initiatives by non-profit organization such as the Association for Frontotemporal Degeneration (AFTD), Alzheimer Discovery Foundation (ADDF), Bluefield Project Organization, Tau Consortium Organization, CurePSP, Inc. have helped to promote frontotemporal disorders treatment drugs research initiatives.

These organizations support clinical trials as well as preclinical studies for testing new therapeutics which are interventional to slow or stop FTD and other rare neurological disease progression

Growing Prevalence of Dementia Expected to Propel the Demand for Frontotemporal Disorders Treatment Drugs

Dementia affects around 50 million people globally. Frontotemporal dementia may account for 2–5% of the overall dementia cases. Dementia prevalence is projected to nearly triple by 2050. According to the Dementia Statistics Organization, globally the number of people living with dementia will increase by 204% from 50 Mn in 2018 to 152 Mn in 2050.

The growing number of dementia cases will also increase the population base of frontotemporal dementia, which is expected to propel the demand for frontotemporal disorders treatment drugs and medications.

Orphan Drug Development Incentives by FDA Expected to Increase Drug Developer Interest Towards Frontotemporal Disorders Treatment Drug Development

Frontotemporal dementia falls under the rare diseases or orphan indications. FTD affects around 30,000 to 40,000 patients in the U.S. Treatment of FTD falls under the auspices of Orphan Drug Act of 1983 as orphan drug indications are those which affect less than 200,000 people in the U.S. along with similar legislation in the Europe. Orphan drug designation to FTD allows the continuation of clinical trial and drug development with commercial incentives, prioritized consultation by FDA on clinical studies and reduction in regulatory fees

High Life Expectancy Rate Leads to Higher Prevalence of Frontotemporal Disorders in the Older Age Group

Rising life expectancy rate is another major factor expected to boost the growth of the frontotemporal disorders treatment market due to high prevalence of frontotemporal disorder among the older population. Population aged 65 years and above is mostly prone to neurodegenerative diseases such frontotemporal disorder, Alzheimer and dementia. The global population is projected to increase over the time.

Global population in 2015 was around 7.2 Bn and is estimated to grow to around 15 Bn in 2050. People aged 65 and above is one of the fast growing demographics across the globe. Frontotemporal dementia affects around 6.5 people in 100,000 over the age of 65 annually.
