All memory and mental functioning may be lost in advanced stages of the disease. Alzheimer’s disease may lead to death. According to National Institute of Aging, Alzheimer’s disease is the common form of dementia.
North America dominates the global market for alzheimer’s disease therapeutics due to large number of aging population. Asia followed by the Europe are expected to show high growth rates in the next five years in the global alzheimer’s disease therapeutics market. China and India are expected to be the fastest growing alzheimer’s disease therapeutics markets in Asia-Pacific region. Some of the key driving forces for alzheimer’s disease therapeutics market in emerging countries are increasing R&D investment, large pool of patients and improvement of healthcare infrastructure.
