Leprosy or Hansen's disease (HD) is a chronic infection caused by Mycobacterium lepromatosis or
Mycobacterium leprae bacteria. Leprosy is principally a granulomatous disease. Symptoms of leprosy
include reddish skin lesions, loss of sensation, and weakness of hands and muscles. Nerve damage is
the primary cause for numbness of muscles. Leprosy is a communicable disease that can be propagated
through contact with cough or phlegm of the affected person. Other risk factors of leprosy include
malnutrition and weak immune system. Leprosy is especially prevalent in low-income countries.
Leprosy Treatment Market Outlook
According to the statistics received by the World Health Organization (WHO), from various regions
(138 countries), the number of registered cases of leprosy was 176,176 in 2015, that is 0.18 cases per
10 000 people. The number of new cases shows the degree of sustained transmission of the disease.
Global statistics illustrate that 203,600 (96%) of fresh leprosy cases were from 22 key countries.
Prevalence of high occurrences is a reminder that some areas around the world show high incidences of
the disease and experience very high rate of transmission. According to WHO, around 16 million cases
of leprosy have been treated in the last two decades. Governing bodies and governments alike are
trying to eradicate the presence of the disease on a global scale. Owing to these factors, the leprosy
treatment market is expected to grow at substantial rate over the forecast period (2016–2024).

two segments namely, paucibacillary leprosy (one to five skin lesions, maximum one nerve with skin
liaisons) and multibacillary leprosy (over six skin liaisons, more than one nerve with skin liaisons).
Early detection of the disease is an important factor for effective treatment, though various drugs are
available for late stage leprosy patients. The most common treatment is multidrug therapy. The drugs
recommended by WHO multidrug therapy are rifampicin, dapsone, and clofazimine. Among these,
rifampicin is most preferred for treatment of leprosy. Treatment with everyday dapsone and monthly
treatment with rifampicin for six months is followed for paucibacillary (PB or tuberculoid) cases. For
multibacillary (MB or lepromatous) cases, the treatment is a prolonged one. It includes daily dapsone
and clofazimine.

Leprosy Treatment Market Future Outlook: Asia Pacific to be Key Growth Market
Leprosy has been endemic to mankind since many decades. This needed interference of various
governments around the world as well as the World Health Organization. Governments play an
important role in the leprosy treatment market. Ever since the introduction of multidrug therapy by
WHO in 1982, governments around the world have adopted this treatment procedure on a large scale.
Some of them subsidized the treatment to eradicate the presence of the disease from their countries.
Therefore government regulation as well as adoption remains the most important driver of the leprosy
treatment market.
