Thyroid Eye Disease Treatment Market

Thyroid Eye Disease Treatment Market Is Driven By Increasing Prevalence Of Thyroid Eye Disease


Thyroid eye disease, also known as Graves’ ophthalmopathy, is a condition where the eye muscles and fatty tissues behind the eye become inflamed and swollen due to hyperthyroidism or Graves’ disease. Common symptoms include dry eyes, redness, bulging eyes, double vision, drooping eyelids and sensitivity to light. Thyroid eye disease can severely impact the quality of life as it can lead to vision loss if left untreated. Currently, corticosteroids and orbital decompression surgery are widely used treatment options. However, new emerging biological treatments targeting autoimmune pathways are showing promising results with fewer side effects. The global thyroid eye disease treatment market is gaining significant traction with the growing prevalence of thyroid disorders worldwide.

The global Thyroid Eye Disease Treatment Market is estimated to be valued at US$ 1.62 Bn in 2024 and is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 24% over the forecast period 2024 to 2031, as highlighted in a new report published by Coherent Market Insights.

Market key trends:

One of the key trends in the thyroid eye disease treatment market is the emergence of biological therapies targeting autoimmune pathways involved in the pathogenesis of the disease. Drugs such as teprotumumab, which inhibits Insulin-like Growth Factor-1 Receptor (IGF-1R), have demonstrated promising results in phase III clinical trials. Teprotumumab was granted Breakthrough Therapy designation by the U.S. FDA in 2019 due to its efficacy and safety profile. It has the potential to become the first FDA approved pharmacological treatment for thyroid eye disease. Another promising biological called Rituximab, which targets B-lymphocytes, is also under evaluation in ongoing clinical studies. With their targeted approach and fewer side effects compared to corticosteroids, biological therapies are likely to revolutionize the long-term management of thyroid eye disease in the coming years.
