According to the National Organization for Rare Disorders, phenylketonuria is a rare disorder and incidence ranges from one in 13,5000 to 19,000 newborns in the U.S. On the other hand, maple syrup urine is seen in one out of 185,000 infants worldwide. In Australia, nearly 25 babies are diagnosed with phenylketonuria every year.

Financial burden due to increasing cost of amino acid supplements along with patient non-compliance will decline the amino acid metabolism disorder treatment market growth over the coming years. The cost is estimated to be around 4,000 Euros per year in the UK. Additionally, lack of awareness of such disorders will negatively impact the growth of the market. Physiological stress, pain, inconvenience and risk of infections associated with repeated injections of phenylketonuria will also negatively impact the industry expansion.

The growing burden of the genetic disorder will increase the number of hospitalization, thereby positively impacting the growth of hospital pharmacies.

The U.S. amino acid metabolism disorders treatment market will foresee significant growth due to numerous on-going clinical trials regarding amino acid metabolism disorder treatment and several acquisitions and mergers amongst the key players present in the country. Additionally, increasing investment in research and development activities will further spur the growth of the U.S. market.

India amino acid metabolism disorders treatment market is expected to grow at a significant pace owing to the increase in nutritional management activities. Furthermore, improvement in healthcare and laboratory testing facilities to diagnose such disorders will spur the demand for medications required to treat disorders. According to the U.S. National Institutes of Health data, the incidence of phenylketonuria in India is around 7 newborns per 100,000 births every year and is more prominent in South India. The growing prevalence of metabolism disorders is expected to grow further in the upcoming years leading to industry growth.

Some of the prominent market players involved in the global amino acid metabolism disorders treatment market are Pfizer, AMINO GmbH, Merck KGaA, GlaxoSmithKline PLC, Civentichem among others. Companies are focusing on research and development activities to introduce technically advanced solutions and treatments. For instance, in December 2018, AMINO GmbH invested around USD 4.7 million for construction of the new innovation center. This new facility provided AMINO with technologies and conditions to develop chemicals to advance clinical trial phase.
