Increasing awareness of SMA and increasing numbers of programs to expand treatment options for rare diseases are key factors that are boosting the market growth. The passage of the Orphan Drug Act, 1983 in the United States and a similar act for orphan pharmaceutical drugs in Europe, for instance, has expanded the reputation of research efforts in rare disease treatment.

In 2017, the United States. RG7916, a joint development project by SMA Foundation, Roche, and PTC Therapeutics for SMA care, was granted an orphan drug license by the FDA. Similarly, the United States issued the Orphan Drug Designation to the CK-2127107 of Cytokinetics. This is expected to increase the number of clinical researches in this area, thereby boosting the growth of the sector.

Also, initiatives undertaken by different public and non-profit organizations to raise awareness of SMA are another driving factor for the market.

Growth will be boosted globally by the increasing number of collaborations with research institutes and definitive deals with pharmaceutical companies in the United States market.

The market will continue to grow due to a range of programs initiated by private organizations to raise awareness and support from research and development in the treatment of this disease.

For example, CureSMA is an organization dedicated to supporting and funding comprehensive research to improve SMA patients with treatment and care. It is anticipated that Asia Pacific will record the fastest CAGR over the forecast period. This rise is due to the rapidly developing health system in countries like China and India, as well as increasing numbers of programs to improve access therapies for tSMA.
