Global Ulcerative Colitis Market Size (2023 to 2028)

The global ulcerative colitis market was valued at USD 6.18 billion in 2023. It is further projected to grow at a CAGR of 6.7% and be worth USD 8.55 billion by 2028.

Ulcerative colitis is an inflammatory bowel disease that can cause ulcers in the larger intestine, irritation, and inflammation. The primary cause of the disease is a dysfunctional immune system failing white blood cells; due to ulcerative colitis, the white blood cells start attacking the colon's lining, leading to severe inflammation and ulcers. Ulcerative colitis does not have a complete cure, but the disease can be controlled by taking proper treatments at regular intervals.

MARKET DRIVERS:

The growing patient population of ulcerative colitis primarily drives the market growth. The prevalence of ulcerative colitis has been growing continuously over the last few years and is expected to grow significantly in the coming years. Factors such as changes in lifestyle, dietary habits, environmental factors, genetic predisposition, increasing awareness, and diagnosis rates result in the increasing incidence of ulcerative colitis. As per the statistics published by the Crohn's & Colitis Foundation, approximately 1.6 million Americans suffer from inflammatory bowel disease, including ulcerative colitis. The growing patient population of ulcerative colitis is driving the demand for diagnostic tests, medical devices, and surgical procedures and offering new opportunities for companies operating in the market.

The growing healthcare expenditure for chronic diseases is another key factor propelling the market growth. Ulcerative colitis is a chronic disease. People suffering from chronic diseases must require long-term management and regular medical care. The costs incurred for the treatment of chronic diseases are significant and are growing with time. The growing number of advancements in diagnostic techniques and tools, such as endoscopy, colonoscopy, and biomarker testing for the diagnosis and treatment of ulcerative colitis promotes the market growth. The rising awareness among patients, healthcare professionals, and the general population about ulcerative colitis and its symptoms favors market growth. Governmental and non-governmental organizations have been taking several awareness campaigns and educational initiatives to increase the awareness levels of people regarding ulcerative colitis.

The rising focus of pharmaceutical companies on the R&D to develop novel therapies for ulcerative colitis, growing healthcare spending particularly in developed countries, the favorable regulatory environment for the approval of new therapies targeting ulcerative colitis, the growing aging population that is more susceptible to developing ulcerative colitis contributes to the market growth. The rising incidence of IBD worldwide, an increasing number of collaborations and partnerships between pharmaceutical companies, research institutions, and healthcare providers to develop advanced treatment options for ulcerative colitis, the rising shift towards personalized medicine, growing investments from the governments to better the healthcare infrastructure including hospitals, clinics, and specialized treatment centers and the rising focus of key market participants on capturing the potential of emerging markets such as the Asia-Pacific, Latin America and the Middle East further support the market growth.

MARKET RESTRAINTS:

The stringent approval process for biosimilars is the primary factor restraining the growth of the global ulcerative colitis market. Unfavorable rules and policies and Varying conditions in different countries also limit the growth of the ulcerative colitis market. Patent expiration of blockbuster drugs is expected to slow down the growth pace of the ulcerative colitis market during the forecast period. In addition, some of the side effects of the drugs, such as Nausea, Diarrhoea, fever, and headache, is the factor that restrains the market growth.

Impact of COVID-19 on the global ulcerative colitis market:

The COVID-19 impact has shared an unfavorable impact on the ulcerative colitis market. The disruption in routine medical care and non-emergency procedures caused by the COVID-19 pandemic has resulted in delayed diagnoses and treatment initiation for people suffering from ulcerative colitis. Access to diagnostic tests, endoscopy procedures, and in-person appointments with healthcare providers has been limited during the COVID-19 pandemic. Patients with ulcerative colitis hesitated to visit healthcare facilities for treatment during the COVID-19 pandemic due to the fear of contracting with coronavirus. The COVID-19 pandemic has also shown a significant impact on clinical trials and delayed the process of development of novel therapies for ulcerative colitis. Likewise, the COVID-19 pandemic impacted the ulcerative colitis market negatively. On the other hand, the usage of telemedicine and medical care has increased and satisfied the needs of a limited patient population with ulcerative colitis. However, the global ulcerative colitis market is expected to recover quickly and is estimated to grow at a healthy CAGR during the forecast period.
