According to a report published by Grand View Research, Inc.; the human growth hormone (hGH) market is likely to reach a valuation of around USD 7.1 billion by 2025.
Strong pipeline, and growing adoption and affordability of hormone therapy in the developing countries can propel the market during the forecast period (2014 to 2025).
Increasing cases of pituitary dysfunction, wide range of growth hormone (GH) application and growing awareness regarding the effectiveness of GH in short stature are the important factor to drive the market growth in the coming years. The hGH therapy is highly recommended for advanced age symptoms. The hGH is anabolic, since it helps to accelerate protein synthesis and breakdown of fat. Therefore, athletes involved in sport or strength demanding activities are expected to boost the use of hGH due to its anabolic effects. Now a day, it’s a very common practice among the sportspersons to use combination of GH and anabolic steroids for the benefits. The adult growth hormone deficiency (AGHD) is increasing due to many conditions like pituitary tumors, neuromuscular, neuropsychiatric-cognitive, cardiovascular, metabolic abnormalities, and skeletal abnormalities. Hormone growth therapy is being effective in most of these conditions.
