Spinal muscular atrophy (SMA) is an inherited disorder that leads to disintegration of motor neurons in the spinal cord. Motor neurons are responsible for transmitting nerve impulses from the brain to the spinal cord; the peripheral nerves then transmit the message to the muscles. Once the motor neurons start failing, muscles get progressively weaker and begin to atrophy (muscle loss), making the condition permanent and irreversible. Muscle atrophy mainly affects proximal muscles such as shoulders and hips.

High Treatment Costs to Hinder Market Growth

The global spinal muscular atrophy market is anticipated to have restrained growth owing to the expensive treatments and drugs available for the disease. For example, Novartis recently developed and got FDA approval for their gene therapy drug, Zolgensma, which costs US$ 2.125 mn. It is the only available, one-dose treatment for all categories of SMA. As it’s a rare disorder, affecting 1 in 10,000 babies in the US, developing treatments and drugs is not seen as economically viable by most companies. This will have a negative impact on the global spinal muscular atrophy market in the forecast period.

Intense Research and Innovation to Drive Market Competition

Competition in the global spinal muscular atrophy market is expected to intensify as companies look to launch innovative products and increase market share through acquisitions. For example, the Swiss pharma multinational, Novartis, acquired the US-based AveXis in 2018 to entrench its position in the gene therapy market for treating spinal muscular atrophy. In July 2019, Biogen released results of its NURTURE study of SMA patients which revealed that patients treated with SPINRAZA showed continuous improvement in their motor functions. Such studies will encourage more companies to invest in research and development.
