Lyme Disease (LD): Global Market Insights, Epidemiology and Forecast to 2027

Dublin, Dec. 10, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Lyme Disease (LD)- Market Insights, Epidemiology and Market Forecast-2027" drug pipelines has been added to's offering.

This report delivers an in-depth understanding of the disease, historical & forecasted epidemiology as well as the market trends of Lyme disease (LD) in the United States, EU5 (Germany, Spain, Italy, France and United Kingdom) and Japan.

The report provides the current treatment practices, emerging drugs, market share of the individual therapies, current and forecasted market size of Lyme disease (LD) from 2016 to 2027 segmented by seven major markets. The report also covers current treatment practice/algorithm, market drivers, market barriers and unmet medical needs to curate best of the opportunities and assess underlying potential of the market.


According to this research, total incident population of Lyme disease (LD) in the 7 major markets is estimated approximately 489,605 cases in 2016 and it is expected to change in 2027.

This research estimates that the Incident population of Lyme disease (LD) will significantly change during the study period [2016-2027]. The research estimates a higher diagnosed incidence of Lyme disease (LD) in the United States with 280,152 diagnosed cases in 2016.

Drug Chapters

Currently, the therapeutic options comprises the use of antibiotics for the treatment of Lyme disease (LD). The present market does not holds any approved drug for Lyme disease (LD). The situation is equally crucial for the emerging therapies. The thin pipeline activities in this space makes the situation even more complicated. In the current scenario, the pipeline holds only one active product, VLA15 being developed by Valneva.

Expected Launch of potential therapies (currently only one i.e., VLA15) may increase market size in the coming years, assisted by an increase in diagnosed incident population of Lyme disease (LD). Owing to the positive outcomes during the early stage trials along with the Fast track Designation the only upcoming therapy VLA15 by Valneva has a potential to create a significant positive shift in the Lyme disease (LD) Market Size.

The treatment course for Lyme disease (LD) includes Antibiotics comprising Tetracycline (Doxycycline), Penicillins (Amoxicillin and Benzathine Penicillin), Cephalosporins (Cefuroxime, Ceftriaxone and Cefotaxime), Macrolides (Azithromycin and clarithromycin) and some other medications for the related manifestations associated with the Lyme disease (LD).

The First Line of Treatment for Lyme borreliosis comprises of Tetracycline, Penicillins followed by Cephalosporins.

Market Outlook

This segment gives a through detail of market trend of each marketed drug and late-stage pipeline therapy by evaluating their impact based on annual cost of therapy, inclusion and exclusion criteria's, mechanism of action, compliance rate, growing need of the market, increasing patient pool, covered patient segment, expected launch year, competition with other therapies, brand value, their impact on the market and view of the key opinion leaders. The calculated market data are presented with relevant tables and graphs to give a clear view of the market at first sight.

According to this research, the market of Lyme disease (LD) in 7MM was found to be 403.64 million in 2016, and is expected to increase from 2016-2027.

The United States accounts for the largest market size of Lyme disease (LD) in comparison to EU5 (the United Kingdom, Germany, Italy, France, and Spain) and Japan.

Lyme disease (LD) Drugs Uptake

This section focusses on the rate of uptake of the potential drugs recently launched in the market or will get launched in the market during the study period from 2016-2027. The analysis covers market uptake by drugs; patient uptake by therapies and sales of each drug.

This helps in understanding the drugs with the most rapid uptake, reasons behind the maximal use of new drugs and allows the comparison of the drugs on the basis of market share and size which again will be useful in investigating factors important in market uptake and in making financial and regulatory decisions.
