Muscarinic Acetylcholine Receptor Market Size, Share & Industry Analysis, By Product Type (M1, M4, M5, Others), By Application Type (Alzheimer's Disease, Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD), Psychiatric Disorders, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, Others) Others and Regional Forecast, 2019-2026

Region : Global | Report ID: FBI102088 | Status : Ongoing



Muscarinic acetylcholine receptor are metabotropic receptors that, depending on their coupling to G-protein α-subunits, can excite or inhibit postsynaptic neurons. These receptors are the member of G-protein-coupled receptor’s family, specifically class A receptors. These receptors are triggered in the presence of acetylcholine which is released from the postganglionic fibers of the nervous system. Acetylcholine functions as neurotransmitters in the central nervous system and the peripheral nervous system. Acetylcholine causes excitatory actions in the central nervous system by activating muscles in the peripheral nervous system.

Key Market Driver -

Growing prevalence of neurological diseases across the globe

Key Market Restraint -

Stringent government regulations can restrain market growth

Increasing prevalence of neurological disorders across the globe is one of the major factor augmenting muscarinic acetylcholine receptor market growth during the forecast period. Neurological disorders such as, alzheimers disease, memory impairment and other psychiatric disorders can be treated with the application of muscarinic acetylcholine receptors. Hence, increasing prevalence of such diseases will significanlty propel market growth. Additionally, these receptors can be used for the treatment other chronic diseases as well. For instance, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is a type of obstructive lung disorder characterized by poor airflow and long-term breathing problems, which can be treated with the use of such receptors. Hence, increasing prevalence of neurological disorders coupled with growing number of applications pertaining to muscarinic acetylcholine receptors will considerably support market growth across the forecast period.

However, presence of stringent government regulatory policies for the approval of such receptors, along with lack of awareness among the population are factors limiting the market growth of muscarinic acetylcholine receptors.
