Thyroid Disorder Market

Global Thyroid Disorder Market Size, Forecast, and Trend Highlights Over 2022 - 2031

The global thyroid disorder market is estimated to garner a revenue of nearly USD 2.6 billion by the end of 2031 by growing at a CAGR of ~5% over the forecast period, i.e., 2022 – 2031. Further, the market generated a revenue of close to USD 1.5 billion in the year 2021. This growth can be attributed to an increase in the number of people afflicted with various thyroid gland disorders. It has been estimated that more than 10 percent of the U.S. population will develop a thyroid condition during their lifetime and around 23 million Americans already have some form of thyroid disease.


Thyroid Disorder Market




The thyroid gland, which is a butterfly-shaped gland in the neck, helps control the metabolism of the human body. If it is underactive, it leads to weight gain, constipation, or fatigue, which is also technically known as hypothyroidism. If it is overactive, it leads to weight loss, sweating, a faster heartbeat, and a feeling of nervousness or moodiness, also known as hyperthyroidism.

Thyroid disorders can range from a small, harmless goiter (enlarged gland) that needs no treatment to life-threatening cancer. As per the American Cancer Society’s estimates for thyroid cancer in the United States for 2022, there were about 43,800 new cases of thyroid cancer and around 2,230 deaths due to the same. Hence, there is huge scope for the diagnosis and treatment of thyroid disorders in the global market over the forecast period.

Global Thyroid Disorder Market: Growth Drivers and Challenges

Growth Drivers

  • High Incidence of Thyroid Disorders – Thyroid disorders are more common in women than in men affecting 1 in 8 women, according to the Office on Women’s Health, a part of the US Department of Health & Human Services. It affects women’s menstrual cycle, pregnancies, and menopause. Hypothyroidism and hyperthyroidism are common thyroid disorders that create potentially devastating health consequences that affect people worldwide.

  • Increase in the Number of Patients with Iodine Deficiencies – Although preventive measures such as the use of iodized salt have been undertaken all across the globe. People from many parts of the world still do not get enough iodine through their diet, and iodine deficiency continues to be an important public health concern affecting approximately 35% of the world’s population.

  • Development of Effective Combination Drug Therapies to Treat Thyroid Gland Disorders – Beta-blockers, anti-thyroid drugs, radioactive iodine treatment (RAI), thyroid hormone replacement therapy, and thyroid surgery (thyroidectomy) or a combination of these treatments are currently in trend to treat thyroid gland disorders, thus expanding the thyroid disorder market size. For instance, radioactive iodine therapy is a safe and effective way of treating toxic nodular goiter with a success rate of 85-100% of patients, according to a study published in Pakistan by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) in 2018.

  • Increase in Awareness Amongst Patients in Terms of Early Screening and the Presence of Modern Diagnostic Facilities- The use of sensitive diagnostic procedures, such as CT or MRI scans (done for other medical problems), can detect incidental small thyroid nodules that might not otherwise have been found in the past. Mandatory screening of newborns for congenital hypothyroidism and early treatment have prevented mental retardation and other ailments in the long run. As of 2022, there are more than 29,000 diagnostic and medical laboratories in the United States.

  • Growing Number of Clearances and Product Launches by Leading Market Players Have Propelled the Market Growth- Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved Levothyroxine for the treatment of thyroid gland disorders. Desiccated thyroid extract (DTE), another type of therapy has also been approved by the FDA and is available globally under different brand names.

A high prevalence of iodine deficiency all over the world is another factor that is predicted to inflate the size of the segment in the coming years.
