Thyroid Gland Disorders Treatment Market

The demand for Thyroid Gland Disorders Treatment Market is driven by the growing burden of people suffering from iodine deficiency. One of the main reasons for iodine deficiency is the lack of adequate sources of iodine found in the diet. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), iodine’s recommended intake (RDI) is 150 milligrams per day. This is enough for more than 95 percent of healthy adults, including lactating and pregnant women requiring more.

Iodine deficiency is becoming more common across European countries and the middle- and low-income countries of Asia-Pacific and Africa. The National Institute of Health has said that the prevalence of iodine deficiencies is higher in the mountains located in the United States and Mexico, where more sufferers are suffering from thyroid disorders. Furthermore, the increase in the smoking of tobacco and alcohol is also causing thyroid problems in developing regions. It is one of the main drivers of the market being studied.

Hyperthyroidism is a disease that occurs when your thyroid gland makes thyroxin, a hormone in excess. According to the National Institute of Health, the estimated prevalence of the disease is about 1-1.3 percent. It grows to 4 to 5 percent when women are older. Furthermore, the disease most often occurs in smokers.

Because smoking is on the rise in people across the globe, a growing number of people are becoming victims of the illness. Additionally, awareness of hyperthyroidism is growing in developing nations like India and China, increasing the size of the market being studied. Further, the ease of access to antithyroid drugs for hyperthyroidism has fueled the demand.

North America will Dominate the Thyroid Gland Disorders Treatment Market

According to estimates, around 35 million people across North America suffer from at least one type of thyroid illness. Numerous companies have collaborated with ATA (America Thyroid Association) because the organization has provided research grants that amount to around $ 2.2 million. Furthermore, multinational companies frequently raise awareness in American society by launching campaigns.

For example, Merck launched the “It is not you. It’s Your Thyroid” campaign in 2017 and 2018. Its annual “Awareness” campaign is conducted in partnership with Thyroid Federation International (TFI). It is based on the observation by many companies that thyroid disorders aren’t fully recognized and are often misdiagnosed. The growing health infrastructure and extensive government involvement in treating thyroid disorders make North America a significant revenue contribution to the market being studied.

The market for treatment for thyroid gland disorders is competitive but mainly comprises global players. The rapid advancements in therapies could see the entry of some minor or mid-sized businesses into the market shortly.
