Prevalence of endocrine diseases in the US is on a rise as the country’s urban residents continue to bear the brunt of their sedentary lifestyles. Rising incidence of endometriosis, unexplained infertility and polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) continues to alarm public health authorities across the US. Measures undertaken by non-profit organizations and US health regulatory bodies are promoting the awareness of PCOS treatments. Also, therapies for diseases associated with PCOS are being developed to bear out the unmet clinical needs of people suffering from such complications. Despite this, the demand for PCOS treatment continues to incur a sluggish growth across the US. Persistence Market Research’s recent publication estimates that the US$ 230 Mn PCOS treatment market in the US will exhibit a moderate value CAGR of 3.9% to reach US$ 313.2 Mn by the end of 2024.
The foremost growth inhibitor for polycystic ovary syndrome treatment market in the US is pending approval of drugs at the FDA. The US FDA continues to prolong the approval for drugs on polycystic ovary syndrome treatment. And, this has severely lowered the production of effective medicines, thereby impacting the adoption of PCOS treatment. Presently, no drugs have been approved by the FDA for direct treatment of PCOS. Physicians are thus providing drug prescriptions through off-label indications, which is incidentally diverting patients to generic drugs.
