Triptorelin Market to Reach USD 724.4 Million by 2028

The Global Triptorelin Market size is anticipated to reach USD 724.4 million by 2028 with a CAGR of 5.6% over the forecast period. Triptorelin is an injection peptide formulation that has been developed specifically to treat advanced metastatic prostate cancer. In addition, it is also used in the treatment of uterine fibroids, muscle tissue tumors in the uterus, endometriosis (endometrial tissue proliferation), the mucous membrane lining the uterine organ wall outside the reproductive tract prior to surgery or when surgery is not deemed necessary, as well as early puberty and female infertility (in vitro fertilization).

For the treatment of prostate cancer, additional triptorelin modalities such as triptorelin acetate, triptorelin pamoate, and triptorelin embonate are also used. Prostate cancer develops most of the time with elevated testosterone hormone levels. Triptorelin is a GnRH agonist intended to prevent testosterone flares. This helps lowers the level of testosterone and minimize prostate cancer progression.

It is expected that growing research and development of triptorelin for applications in different therapeutic indications by private manufacturers and research organizations will drive the growth of the triptorelin market. Different clinical trials are currently underway to extend the possible future use of triptorelin in breast cancer and human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). In addition, the widespread use of triptorelin in prostate cancer, cancer of the salivary gland, and central precocious puberty is expected to fuel market growth during the forecast period.

In addition, by introducing inorganic growth strategies, pharmaceutical manufacturers of triptorelin products are upgrading their product range to retain their market foothold. In August 2016, Teva Pharmaceutical Industries Ltd. completed the acquisition of Allergan's generics business: Actavis Generics. Two leading generic companies with complementary strengths, research and development (R&D) capabilities, product pipeline and portfolio, organizational experience and regional footprint capabilities have thus been brought together with this strategic acquisition. Such acquisitions will play an important role in the growth of the global triptorelin market.

Prominent market players are also interested in expanding their product portfolio in different geographical areas. Arbor Pharmaceuticals, LLC and Debiopharm International SA, for example, made Triptodur (triptorelin) commercially available in the U.S. in October 2017, for pediatric patients two years and older diagnosed with central precocious puberty (CPP). In addition, in January 2016, both companies jointly announced the execution of a distribution agreement for the marketing and promotion of triptorelin 22.5 mg for central precocious puberty (CPP) in the US.

According to new indication, Decapeptyl (triptorelin) is used as an adjuvant treatment, along with tamoxifen or an aromatase inhibitor, for endocrine-responsive early-stage breast cancer in women at high risk of recurrence who are confirmed to be premenopausal after chemotherapy has been completed. This is expected to increase the growth revenue for the triptorelin industry over the forecast period. In addition, improved effectiveness and tolerability of triptorelin in suppressing the secretion of gonadotropin in prostate cancer and precocious puberty have increased its market adoption.
