Follow us on LinkedIn – Testosterone replacement therapy (TRT) have been in existence in the market from the 1930s, yet the market has gained momentum only during the past decade with the introduction of topical gels. Since then, growth in the TRT market has exploded, with average growth rate exceeding 20% annually. Testosterone replacement therapy (TRT) is now considered a highly lucrative and evolving segment with current treatment penetration rate standing at significantly low levels, both in developed and underdeveloped countries. Despite high incidence rate, diagnosis and treatment rate for TRT remains below 12% even in the US, the most developed market for testosterone replacement therapy. The condition remains less diagnosed in other markets including developed regions such as Europe and Japan. Growth in the market is picking up, geared by rising awareness about hypogonadism or testosterone deficiency and its treatment, among both patients and physicians. Besides this, the availability of wider range of treatment options, an aging population, and aggressive promotion activity by large pharmaceutical companies to educate both patients and physicians is expected to further expand market gains.
As stated by the new market research report on Testosterone Replacement Therapy, the US continues to remain the largest and fastest growing market. Most of the developing countries remain highly under penetrated in terms of testosterone replacement therapy. However, rapid economic development as well as a surging elderly populace with high disposable income provides players with vast untapped opportunities. The potential for development in emerging countries can be gauged from the fact that India and China combined together hold more than 80 million population above the age of 65. Segment-wise, Gels represent the predominantly used therapy, accounting for a lion’s share of the value sales. The segment is expected to garner greater market share following the recent introduction of new gel based formulations including Axiron, Androgel 1.62%, and Bio-T-Gel. In addition, several other gel-based formulations are in the pipeline and undergoing clinical trials. Though the use of injections has declined significantly in the US subsequent to the introduction of gels, they retain significant market share in the European market.
Select market players profiled in the report are include Abbott Laboratories, Acrux Limited, Auxilium Pharmaceuticals, Bayer Schering Pharma AG, Columbia Laboratories,
Eli Lilly and Company, GlaxoSmithKline plc, ProStrakan Group PLC, Trimel, and Watson Pharmaceuticals.
