South Africa Central Nervous System (CNS) Therapeutic Market Key Players, SWOT Analysis, Dynamics, Drivers, Key Indicators and Forecast to 2027

Rising prevalence of CNS diseases such as malnutrition, malaria, the human immunodeficiency virus & the acquired immune deficiency syndrome (HIV/AIDS), and demographic transitions are expected to surge the market growth. However, high cost of treatment is likely to have a negative impact on the growth of the market in the coming years.

 Neurological disorders are very prevalent in Sub-Saharan Africa. The factors responsible for the growing burden include difficult perinatal situations, malnutrition, malaria, the human immunodeficiency virus & the acquired immune deficiency syndrome (HIV/AIDS), and demographic transitions. The primary neurological disorders include mental retardation, cerebral palsy, developmental disorders, epilepsy, peripheral neuropathy, stroke, trauma, and alcohol abuse. According to South African Pharmaceutical Journal in 2016, an estimated 818, 106 people are getting dementia per year, presently affecting more than 4 million people. The number is anticipated to be more than 14 million by 2050. Furthermore, HIV-associated dementia (HAD) is dominant in 15–30% of untreated adults with late-stage disease. The elderly patients, who previously have an increased risk of non-AIDS related dementias, are more prone to untreated HIV. Such a rising prevalence of CNS disorders is expected to create a demand for the central nervous system (CNS) therapeutic across the world.
