The anti-Parkinson drugs market consists of sales of drugs used for treating Parkinson`s disease (PD), generated by the establishments that manufacture these drugs. Parkinson`s disease is a neurodegenerative disorder that affects predominately dopaminergic neurons in a specific area of the brain named substantia nigra and disturbs the movement of the body. People suffering from PD may experience tremor, bradykinesia, limb rigidity, gait, and balance problems.
The global anti-Parkinson drugs market is expected to decline from $4.23 billion in 2019 to $4.12 billion in 2020 at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of -2.62%. The decline is mainly due to the COVID-19 outbreak that has led to restrictive containment measures involving social distancing, remote working, and the closure of industries and other commercial activities resulting in operational challenges. The entire supply chain has been disrupted, impacting the market negatively. The market is then expected to recover and reach $5.04 billion in 2023 at a CAGR of 7.01%.
