Europe Orphan Drugs Market Size (2022 to 2027)

The size of the European Orphan Drugs Market is forecasted to worth USD 55.65 billion by 2027 from USD 38.48 billion in 2022, growing at a CAGR of 7.66% from 2022 to 2027.

Benchmarks for the designation of orphan disease differ from country to country; in Europe, if the disease is prevalent in fewer than 10000 people, it’s termed a rare disease. The growth of the Europe Orphan Drugs Market is powered by factors such as prolonged market exclusivity and government enticements for orphan medicine. In Europe, ten years of marketing exclusivity from approval is granted to orphan drug developing companies.

The focus on developing orphan drugs is becoming more day by day, whereby both private and public organizations are much more useful than non-orphan drugs to cure rare diseases. It is the key driving factor for the European Orphan Drugs Market to grow eventually. The rise in the incidences of chronic and infectious diseases is fuelling up the growth rate of the market. FDA (Food and Drug Administration) is making reasonable efforts to increase the commercialization of orphan drugs is accelerating the demand for the European Orphan Drugs Market. Government support is also another primary reason for the market to grow eventually, as they invest considerable amounts in improving the quality of drugs. The rise in healthcare expenditure, especially in urban areas, is fuelling the demand for Orphan Drugs in European countries. 

However, fluctuations in the availability of raw materials, rising prices of the drugs, lack of complete knowledge in manufacturing the drugs with the latest formula are majorly inhibiting the demand of the European orphan drugs market. Strict rules and regulations by the government in approving new drugs and the rise in the complications due to uncertainty in the development of novel orphan drugs further impede the market growth. 

Growing demand to produce quality drugs with the latest technologies in pharmaceutical companies, rising capita income in developed and developing countries, and increasing awareness over the availability of different treatment procedures are to open growth opportunities to the market.
