Currently available treatments for sickle cell disease (SCD) usually provide symptomatic relief and palliative care. These treatment methods generally include blood transfusions, bone marrow transplant, and pharmacotherapy. Although bone marrow transplant is the only potentially curative treatment, it is recommended only to a small percentage of patients. The market has only two approved products-hydroxyurea and Endari.

High unmet medical needs, strong pipeline, and growing patient pool are key factors expected to influence market growth. In recent years, demand for cost-effective drugs and gene therapies for SCD has increased owing to unavailability of a permanent cure and risks associated with bone marrow transplant.

Expected launch of late-stage pipeline drugs such as voxelotor, crizanlizumab, Altemia, and rivipansel is projected to drive the sickle cell disease market during the forecast period. Healthcare initiatives undertaken by respective economies are crucial for curbing the financial burden of the disease as well as for increasing access to healthcare facilities and providing various services for early diagnosis, subsequent treatment, and palliative care.
