Alzheimers Market: Developer Landscape and Competitive Insights

It was estimated that, in 2018, nearly 5.7 million Americans (considering all age groups) were living with Alzheimers. During the same year, Alzheimer’s pipeline and other dementias were projected to be responsible for a healthcare burden amounting to USD 277 billion, in the US. Despite extensive research aimed at comprehending the etiopathogenesis of Alzheimers, only six drugs have been approved since 1998 for treatment. The rate of failure of drugs being developed for treating Alzheimers is alarming (~99.6%) and is even higher than that reported for cancer (~81%). At present, several stakeholders in the pharmaceutical industry are engaged in efforts to develop various types of disease modifying interventions and drug / therapy candidates that offer symptomatic relief.

I have highlighted below some of the most interesting insights from our study. You can also access additional details Alzheimer’s Disease Market.

Several molecules are in late stages of clinical development; based on a variety of established and novel therapeutic principles, these molecules are designed for delivery via diverse routes of administration

Close to 45% of the Alzheimer disease pipeline is currently in preclinical stage. Additionally, majority of them are using oral route of administration.

Innovation in this domain is being by both industry and academic players, and is evident across published scientific literature; there are several drug development programs against known biological targets

The rising interests of stakeholders can be be attributed from the increasing number of publications focused on Alzheimers disease.

Despite extensive research efforts and a burgeoning pipeline, only six drugs are commercially available; among the reported reasons for failure, inability to achieve study (primary / secondary) endpoints is the most common.


Several investors have realized the lucrative opportunity associated with drug candidates being developed to treat this clinical condition; over USD 2.8 billion has been raised across 180 instances recently

Various stakeholders are continuously investing in the field of Alzheimers disease. Further, it is worth mentioning that Maximum amount has been raised through Seed funding.
