OAB therapeutics market in the Americas

The Americas occupied a majority 43% of the overactive bladder therapeutics market in 2016, with the US being the single largest contributor to the market. The market is expected to experience a high growth rate because of the high occurrence of OAB and rise in geriatric population,” says Sapna Jha, a lead analyst at Technavio for cardiovascular and metabolic disorders research.

The presence of various health care coverage systems such as Medicare is also significantly boosting the market growth since it allows access to an effective treatment regimen for OAB. Studies conducted by institutions such as the MGC Data Services estimate that about 8.8%-13.6% of the total affected OAB population seemed to seek medical treatment. The improvement of these percentages through the forecast period will augment the market growth.
