Guillain-Barre Syndrome is a rare autoimmune disorder. In this case, the patients’ immune system attacks the nervous system. The causative agents of the Guillain-Barre Syndrome are still unknown. However, it is illuminated that the disease is often accompanied by infections including respiratory infection and stomach flu. The weakness in legs, difficulty in breathing, low or high blood pressure, restricted eye or facial movements are some of the common symptoms of the Guillain-Barre Syndrome.
According to the U.S. Library of Medicine, the prevalence of Guillain-Barre syndrome is estimated to be 6 to 40 cases per 1 million people. Acute Inflammatory Demyelinating Polyradiculoneuropathy (AIDP) is the most common type Guillain-Barre Syndrome seen in North America and Europe, accounting for approximately 90 percent of cases of Guillain-Barré syndrome in those regions.

According to a study published by the PLOS One Journal in 2017, the Guillain-Barre syndrome is amongst some of the most common types of serious acute paralytic neuropathy. Moreover, an estimated 100,000 new cases of the disease were reported in 2017 globally. The increasing prevalence of Guillain-Barre syndrome is one of the major factors driving the growth of the global market in 2018.
However, lack of awareness for the disease, absence of any definitive treatment, and low per capita healthcare expenditures in the emerging countries are some of the factors restraining the Guillain-Barre syndrome treatment market growth during the projected period.

North America dominated the global Guillain-Barre syndrome treatment market in 2018. Advanced and well-developed healthcare infrastructure and huge patient population in the region are some of the factors anticipated to drive the growth of the Guillain-Barre syndrome in North America. The increasing adoption of high-cost IVIG products and growing awareness among patient population leading to higher diagnosis rate in developed and emerging countries, are some of the factors driving the growth of the global Guillain-Barre syndrome treatment market. Additionally, a large number of market players in the U.S. market are focusing on R&D activities to introduce new therapeutic products for the treatment of Guillain–Barre syndrome. These factors are likely to fuel the growth of the Guillain-Barre syndrome treatment market in the North America. Asia Pacific is projected to grow at significant CAGR in the forecast period, due to the presence of a huge patient population and developing economies such as India and China within the region. Moreover, a large patient pool suffering due to infections by influenza and Zika virus, leading to triggering of the Guillain-Barre syndrome, is projected to fuel the demand for the diagnosis and treatment of the Guillain-Barre syndrome in the region.
