Report Overview

China Adrenoleukodystrophy (ALD) Therapeutics market size stood at around USD xx billion in 2020 and is projected to reach USD xx billion by 2028, exhibiting a CAGR of xx% during the forecast period.

Adrenoleukodystrophy (ALD) is a rare, genetic, X-linked metabolic disorder caused by mutations in the ABCD1 gene that result in a deficiency in a peroxisomal protein called adrenoleukodystrophy protein (ALDP). Globally AMN and cALD are the two most common phenotypes of X-ALD, which account for 45% and 35% respectively. The global incidence of X-ALD is approximately 6.2/100,000 live births. X-ALD is included in the first China Rare Disease Catalogue published in 2018.The age of onset of cALD patients is typically 4-8 years old.

Market Drivers

China is a growing market for adrenoleukodystrophy (ALD) due to increase in global incidence rate (6.2/100,000 live births). In addition to this, other factors that contribute to the growth of the market are inevitable inheritance of the disease and increase in R&D activities by pharmaceutical companies.

However, there are some restraining factors for growth of adrenoleukodystrophy (ALD) drugs market in China such as overall high cost of treatment and unfavourable reimbursement.

Market Segmentation

By Therapy:

On the basis of therapy, the China’s adrenoleukodystrophy (ALD) therapeutics market can be segmented into gene therapy, steroid therapy and physical therapy.

Gene therapy is the most promising treatment method, but it needs to be further explored due to technical issues.

Steroid therapy, corticosteroid replacement therapy is often necessary, but this treatment is not effective for neurological damage, cannot improve symptoms, and cannot prevent the deterioration of the disease.

Physical therapy is helpful for men with the adrenomyeloneuropathy (AMN) form of the disease.

By Route of Administration:

On the basis of route of administration, China’s adrenoleukodystrophy (ALD) therapeutics market can be segmented into intravenous and subcutaneous routes. The Intravenous route is mainly used in China. The general principle of this route in treatment of adrenoleukodystrophy is that early use is better than late use; larger doses are better than smaller doses.

By Distribution Channel:

On the basis of distribution channel, China’s adrenoleukodystrophy (ALD) therapeutics market can be segmented into retail, online and hospital pharmacies. During the forecast period (2020-2028) hospital pharmacies are the key distribution channels as they have a large patient base compared to other healthcare facilities and they also conduct various clinical trials. Retail pharmacy is less dominating as compared to hospital pharmacy due to a smaller number of approved drugs and sometimes non availability of medicines.

Major Players

Some of the key players in China’s adrenoleukodystrophy (ALD) therapeutics market are Sperogenix Therapeutics; Minoryx Therapeutics; Lonza Houston, Inc; Shufang Pharmaceutical.

Key players are adapting various strategies such as distribution partnership, collaboration and licensing agreement to increase the product awareness and market share of the product. For instance, Minoryx Therapeutics and Sperogenix Therapeutics enter into an exclusive license agreement to develop and commercialize Leriglitazone in mainland China, Hong Kong and Macau. Under this agreement Sperogenix will receive exclusive rights to develop and commercialize Leriglitazone in mainland China, Hong Kong special administrative region (SAR) and Macau SAR for the treatment of X-linked adrenoleukodystrophy (X-ALD), a life-threatening orphan neurological condition.

In June 2016, Bluebird Bio entered into a strategic manufacturing agreement with Lonza Houston, Inc., providing for the future commercial production of our drug products Lenti-D in cerebral adrenoleukodystrophy.

Bluebird Bio does not have its direct presence in China, but it is collaborated with Lonza Houston group (has its presence in China).
