The Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy (DMD) treatment market is estimated to be valued at US$981.367 million in 2018 and is expected grow steadily during the forecast period. Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy (DMD) is a rare genetic disorder caused by the mutation of the DMD gene, which is responsible for making a protein called dystrophin causing progressive muscle degeneration. At present, there is no cure for the disease, certain research strategies are being worked upon, however, the treatment is provided for the mitigation of disease symptoms. The growing incidence of rare diseases, rising R&D investments, growing adoption of genetic testing worldwide are some of the major drivers driving the growth of the Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD) treatment market during the forecast period. Furthermore, growing awareness regarding self-care and self-management resulting in early disease detection will help in the disease management in an efficient manner leading to sustainable market growth in the near future and beyond. The prevalence of Duchenne and Becker muscular dystrophy (DBMD) among Non-Hispanic blacks were lower than the prevalence among Hispanics and Non-Hispanic whites (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, CDC). Thus, owing to high disease prevalence, North America and Europe are expected to hold a significant market share globally.
