Play Audio Listen to Audio Version

The global inflammatory bowel disease treatment market size was valued at USD 26.55 billion in 2023 and is projected to grow from USD 29.57 billion in 2024 to USD 44.08 billion by 2032, exhibiting a CAGR of 5.8% during the forecast period (2024-2032). Globally, the prevalence of ulcerative colitis and Crohn's disease is increasing due to factors, such as lifestyle changes in the people, environmental factors, and others. For instance, according to an article published by the Indian Journal of Gastroenterology in 2023, one of the significant global health concerns is inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), which affects more than  0.3% of the global population. Additionally, with the increasing emphasis on the early diagnosis of the disease, a higher diagnosis rate of the disease, and adequate reimbursement policies in developed countries supports the growth of the market. This led to the rising number of patients undergoing treatment for IBD and increased the demand for inflammatory bowel disease treatment drugs, such as TNF inhibitors, IL inhibitors, JAK inhibitors, and others in the market.


The growing awareness about the benefits of drugs such as biologics, corticosteroids, and others is increasing the adoption of inflammatory bowel disease therapeutics globally. For instance, according to the research study conducted by Science Direct, in South America, from the total 655 patients studied, biological therapy was used by 36.4% of the patients suffering from Crohn’s disease and 9.1% of the patients suffering from ulcerative colitis.


The impact of COVID-19 resulted in slower growth of the inflammatory bowel disease treatment market during the forecast period.  Several factors were responsible for the slower treatment rate of the disease, including the closure of diagnostic centres, travel restrictions, and lockdowns in many countries globally. However, in 2021, the regulations imposed by governments were relaxed, and as a result, visits to hospitals and diagnostic centers increased. The demand for inflammatory bowel disease therapeutics is projected to grow steadily during the forecast period as key market players emphasize getting regulatory approvals for their products to expand the therapeutic measures for treating this disease.
