A detailed analysis of the structure of the syndromes of dementia and movement disorder industry has been conducted. Revenues are broken down by neurodegenerative disease and primary clinical/pathological feature. Sales figures are estimated for the five-year period from 2012 through 2017.
Applications for syndromes of dementia and movement disorder treatments, or therapeutic technologies, are also discussed separately in the report, with an emphasis on small molecule and monoclonal antibodies technology. The report also covers significant patents and their allotment in each category.
Extensive research in the field of syndromes of dementia and movement disorders and company collaborations with research institutes have highlighted the importance of understanding the nature of these disorders. New technological developments are providing disease-modifying therapies for the late stages of the disorders. Collaborations between research institutes and pharmaceutical companies are on the rise as state-of-the-art technology is being explored to develop more efficient products and therapies.
R&D spending, along with increasing competition, patent expiries and new technologies are taking the market in a new direction. Global market revenues increased from 2009 to 2011 and are expected to continue to show growth over the forecast period as new advances, launches and collaborations continue to influence the market. This study looks at most of the systems affected by these factors.
Acquisition strategies and collaborations by companies are also covered in this report. This study also discusses the strength and weaknesses of each type of technology in light of the new technologies, growing competition and changing customer needs.
This study contributes to the areas of market growth in treatments for Alzheimer's disease, Lewy body dementia, Pick's disease, Huntington's disease, corticobasal ganglionic degeneration, Parkinson's disease, multiple system atrophy, progressive supranuclear palsy and Hallervorden-Spatz disease. Pharmaceutical biotechnical companies, research institutes and physicians will find this study to be of interest.
The scope of this study encompasses the neurodegenerative disorders in the pharmaceutical and biotechnology markets. BCC analyzes each market and its applications, regulatory environment, technology involved, market projections and market share. Technological issues include the latest trends and developments. The emerging market for enzyme inhibitors includes countries such as India, China, Japan, Korea, Taiwan, Canada, Africa, Australia, New Zealand and Mexico.
BCC conducted a comprehensive literature search, which included technical newsletters and journals, and many other sources. Data were collected through interviews and correspondence with manufacturers of enzyme inhibitors' technical experts. Projections were based on estimates such as the current number of end users, potential end users, mergers and acquisitions, and market trends.
Many companies within the industry were surveyed to obtain data for this study. Included were manufacturers and end users of enzyme inhibitors in therapeutic categories and various disease sectors industries. Data were gathered from various industry sources. BCC spoke with officials within the industry, consulted newsletters, company literature, product literature and a host of technical articles, journals, indexes and abstracts. Exhaustive investigations of databases by key terminology were completed. In addition, data were compiled from current financial, trade and government sources.
The study has been carried out by a team of professionals in the biotechnology industry. The project manager for this study is Shalini S. Dewan, who holds a master's degree in pharmaceutical chemistry and has more than 14 years of industry experience.
