Epidemiology asthma – stable prevalence rates in all age groups will lead to stable case numbers

740 views

Published on

Datamonitor estimates that there were 63.7 million total asthma cases in all ages in the seven major markets (the US, Japan, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, and the UK) in 2010, forecasted to rise to 65.7 million total cases by 2020. Due to stable prevalence rates of asthma, population changes are responsible for the small change in the number of cases during this time.

  1. 1. Epidemiology: Asthma – Stable prevalence rates in all age groups will lead tostable case numbersPublished:September 2011No.Of Pages:45Price:US $ 5700IntroductionDatamonitor estimates that there were 63.7 million total asthma cases in all ages in theseven major markets (the US, Japan, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, and the UK) in 2010,forecasted to rise to 65.7 million total cases by 2020. Due to stable prevalence rates ofasthma, population changes are responsible for the small change in the number of casesduring this time.Features and benefits* Gain insight into market potential, including a robust 10-year asthma epidemiologyforecast of current asthma prevalent cases.* Understand the key epidemiologic risk factors associated with asthma.HighlightsDatamonitor expects to see a small increase in the number of prevalent current asthmacases from 2010 to 2020 in the seven major markets (the US, Japan, France, Germany,Italy, Spain, and the UK). The number of asthma cases is expected to increase fromapproximately 63.7 million cases in 2010 to 65.7 million cases in 2020.The largest increase in the number of current asthma cases is expected in the US. Between2010 and 2020, the number of total prevalent cases of asthma will increase by 0.7%annually. The largest decrease will be in Japan, decreasing at 0.2% annually.Datamonitor estimates that the largest number of cases of asthma will be in women agedbetween 20 and 59 and in men aged under 20 due to the fact that these are the age groupsin which asthma is the most prevalent.Table Of ContentsOVERVIEWCatalystSummaryEXECUTIVE SUMMARYEpidemiology of asthma
