Report Outlook

Usher syndrome market size was valued at USD 2.13 billion in 2023. The market is anticipated to grow from USD 2.22 billion in 2024 to USD 3.08 billion by 2032, exhibiting the CAGR of 4.2% during the forecast period.

Industry Overview

Usher Syndrome is the most prevalent hereditary disorder affecting both hearing and vision loss. It is also called as Retinitis Pigmentosa’ or RP. These symptoms are the main signs of Usher syndrome.

Usher syndrome is a recessive condition. This implies that the individual must inherit the altered gene from both parents. An individual who receives the altered gene from one parent is a carrier of the syndrome but does not actually have it. There is one in four probability that a child born with two carriers of the same Usher syndrome gene will have such syndrome. An increase in the prevalence of hereditary and genetic illnesses drives the market growth opportunity.

When governments invest in research for genetic disorders like Usher Syndrome, it can have several potential impacts. Research led to a deeper understanding of the genetic and molecular mechanisms behind Usher Syndrome, which is crucial for developing targeted therapies. Funding from governments can support clinical trials to test the safety and efficacy of potential treatments, bringing them closer to practical application.

  • For instance, In January 2023, Nacuity, based in Dallas, initiated a Phase 1/2 clinical trial in Australia for its oral antioxidant therapy targeting individuals with Usher syndrome, as reported by the Fighting Blindness Association. The Foundation Fighting Blindness is committing up to $7.5 million to support the advancement of this promising drug, designed to address retinitis pigmentosa, Usher syndrome, and related conditions. The compound, N-acetylcysteine-amide (NACA), aims to mitigate vision loss by safeguarding retinal cells from oxidative stress.

The FDA's regulatory clearances are important in the development of novel treatments for the better cure of Usher syndrome. Regulatory approval of a novel medicine indicates that the treatment has fulfilled strict safety and efficacy requirements. These approvals are crucial for patient access to novel treatments, as well as for drawing funding and encouraging more studies in the field of treating Usher syndrome.

Moreover, there is no treatment for these illnesses at this time; there are several approaches to managing Usher syndrome. Usher syndrome is typically treated with cochlear implants, vision aids, vitamin A supplements, and speech, physical, and occupational therapy, among other therapies. The main factors anticipated to propel the growth of the global Usher syndrome treatment market over the forecast period, the rising awareness of the condition and its treatments, an increase in clinical trials and regulatory approvals for novel therapeutics, and advancements in cochlear implants and hearing aids also drive the Usher syndrome Market.

Key Takeaways

  • North America dominated the largest market and contributed to more than 35% of share in 2023
  • Asia Pacific expected to grow at the fastest CAGR during the forecast period
  • By treatment category, hearing aid device segment accounted for the largest market share in 2023
  • By end use category, the hospital segment is projected to grow at a highest CAGR during the projected period

What are the market drivers driving the demand for Usher syndrome market?

  • Increasing Prevalence of Deafness or Hearing Loss

The increasing prevalence of Usher syndrome across the globe will facilitate market growth. According to the National Institute of Health, in Usher syndrome, deafness or hearing loss results from the atypical development of hair cells, which are responsible for sensing sound, in the inner ear. The severity of hearing impairment, ranging from moderate to profound, is typically present from birth and varies based on the specific type of Usher syndrome.

Alternatively, in less common cases, hearing loss associated with Usher syndrome may manifest during adolescence or later stages. Additionally, the syndrome can lead to significant balance issues due to irregular development of vestibular hair cells, specialized sensory cells responsible for detecting gravity and head movements.

Usher syndrome impacts an estimated 4 to 17 individuals per 100,000, constituting approximately 50 percent of all cases of hereditary deaf-blindness. It is believed to contribute to 3 to 6 percent of the total population of deaf children and an additional 3 to 6 percent of children experiencing hearing impairment.

For the treatment, devices like hearing aids can be used for this syndrome. The accessibility of the device and the global initiatives conducted by governments, corporations, and organizations to raise awareness of them indicate that the market for hearing aids will continue to rise in the upcoming year.

Which factor is restraining the demand for Usher syndrome?

  • High Development Costs hamper the market growth.

Developing therapies or treatments for rare diseases like Usher syndrome often requires substantial financial investment. High development costs can limit the availability of resources for research and development, especially when compared to more prevalent conditions that may attract larger investments.

Investors, including pharmaceutical companies and venture capitalists, may be cautious about allocating funds to Usher syndrome research and development due to the perceived risks and uncertainties associated with developing treatments for rare diseases. This risk aversion can result in fewer resources being dedicated to advancing potential therapies. High development costs, coupled with the uncertainty of success, can discourage both public and private investors from projects with extended timelines, limiting the overall progress in Usher syndrome research.

Category Wise Insights

By Treatment Insights

Based on treatment analysis, the market is segmented on the basis of device, therapy and drugs. In 2023, the hearing aid devices held the largest revenue share. Although there isn't a single therapy or cure for Usher syndrome, persons with the condition can manage their hearing loss with the help of hearing aids. By adolescence, children with type 3 Usher syndrome frequently experience hearing loss, which must be managed with hearing aids by mid-to-late adulthood. In order to help people with hearing loss detect sounds more easily and louder, hearing aids enhance sound waves. Their capacity for interaction and communication with their environment may be enhanced usher syndrome market revenue.

Furthermore, by improving or recovering hearing, hearing aids help people with Usher syndrome. They can also improve a person's general quality of life by managing hearing loss more effectively. With the use of hearing aids, they can engage more completely in social interactions, conversations, and everyday activities. Children with Usher syndrome can benefit from improved speech, language, and hearing development if their hearing aids are fitted early on. The market for hearing aid devices has shown a significant increase in the upcoming years.

By End-Use Insights

Based on end use analysis, the market has been segmented on the basis of hospital, ophthalmic clinics, ENT clinics and others.
