Global Phenylketonuria Treatment Market to Register a Robust Growth Rate During the Forecast Period

The Phenylketonuria Treatment Market is expected to be worth US$ 565.8 Mn at a CAGR of 7% between 2020 to 2030. Healthcare is going the “digital” way. In other words, artificial intelligence (AI)-enabled medical devices and telemedicine are the concrete instances of the proliferation of the digital wave in the healthcare industry. This factor would be the one traversing the healthcare vertical in the forecast period.

Phenylketonuria (PKU) is an inherited disorder caused by excess of phenylalanine in the blood, which can lead to severe intellectual disabilities. There is no cure for phenylketonuria as yet, and dietary management is the only option to maintain the phenylalanine level in the body. Untreated infants with PKU tend to have unusually light eye, skin, and hair colour due to excess of phenylalanine levels interfering with melanin. Neurological symptoms such as seizures, abnormal muscle movement, tremors, or involuntary movement are some of the symptoms mainly observed in such patients.

Rising prevalence of phenylketonuria among newborns and surging demand for novel formulations to treat the disease have led to increased opportunities for market players. Stakeholders are investing more in research & development for novel treatment solutions within the nutraceutical industry.
