Sickle Cell Anemia Therapeutics Market Necessity And Demand 2018 to 2026


A drastic reduction in the total red blood cells or RBC count or hemoglobin is known as anemia. It can be defined as the inability to carry optimum amount of oxygen by the blood. Sickle-cell diseases (SCD) are types of blood disorders which are usually inherited genetically. One of the common types of SCDs is the sickle-cell anemia or SCA. It essentially gives rise to an irregularity in hemoglobin, the protein that carries oxygen in the blood. Hemoglobin is found typically in the red blood cells of the body. As a result a sickle-like shaped cell is formed under certain conditions. Tribulations in sickle cell disease usually start to take shape at a very early age (within the first year of birth).

According to Center for Disease Control and Prevention, as of 2016, around 100,000 people in the U.S. are affected by sickle cell diseases or SCDs. Sickle cell diseases are very common among black or African Americans. Around 1 in 13 babies belonging to the race are born with sickle cell diseases. Growing prevalence of the disease will give rise to an increased demand for sickle cell disease prevention and cure, thereby augmenting the growth of the overall sickle cell anemia therapeutics market.

The National Center for Biotechnology Information says that sickle cell anemia is one of the most common hereditary hematological diseases among humans. Annually, around 250,000 children are born with the disease and it is among the most occurring epidemiological genetic diseases worldwide. Governments around the world, especially in Africa are taking initiatives to prevent and cure the disease as a result of which, huge investments on this field are expected in the coming years. This in turn will encourage the manufacturers around the world to manufacture in large quantities to meet the unmet demand thereby propelling the growth of the sickle cell anemia therapeutics market.

Increasing occurrence of the disease especially in the Africa region will drive the sickle cell anemia therapeutics market

According to the World Health Organization, around 5% of the population around the globe carries the gene for the sickle cell disease. This percentage is as high as 25% in some of the regions around the world. According to the same report, WHO has estimated that the occurrence of sickle cell disease is highest in the African region. To meet this crisis of high prevalence of the disease, WHO’s governing bodies has taken initiatives to address the same. Moreover, according to PLOS Medicine, the occurrence of sickle cell anemia is likely to rise by around 30% by 2050, especially in the sub-Saharan Africa. This rise in demand will eventually push the global sickle cell anemia therapeutics market into a positive growth trajectory over the course of the forecast period (2016-2024).
