Dublin, Oct. 29, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome Treatment Global Market Report 2021: COVID-19 Growth and Change to 2030" report has been added to's offering.

The global polycystic ovarian syndrome treatment market is expected to grow from $3.67 billion in 2020 to $3.96 billion in 2021 at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 7.9%.

The growth is mainly due to the companies resuming their operations and adapting to the new normal while recovering from the COVID-19 impact, which had earlier led to restrictive containment measures involving social distancing, remote working, and the closure of commercial activities that resulted in operational challenges. The market is expected to reach $4.76 billion in 2025 at a CAGR of 5%.

The polycystic ovarian syndrome treatment market consists of sale of services and related products that are used in hospital pharmacies, drug stores, and retail pharmacies to treat polycystic ovarian syndrome. The polycystic ovarian syndrome is a disorder in which hormones are out of control for females and have male hormones that are higher than normal, which causes them to skip menstrual periods and makes pregnancy more difficult for them.

Lack of drugs approved by regulatory bodies such as FDA (Food and Drug Administration) among many countries is a key factor hampering the growth of the polycystic ovarian syndrome treatment market. FDA has not approved pharmacological treatment for use in adolescents with PCOS. However, some pharmacological interventions are used to treat PCOS symptoms.

For instance, rimonabant, a key appetite suppressant cannabinoid CB1 receptor antagonist was not approved by the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in the USA due to concerns about suicidal ideation and drug overdoses. Moreover, Minoxidil is the only drug approved by FDA, used for the treatment of female pattern baldness. Therefore, the lack of regulatory body approved drugs in many countries is a key factor restraining the growth of the polycystic ovarian syndrome treatment market.

The rise in genetic and hormonal disorders globally is expected to increase the growth of the polycystic ovarian syndrome treatment market.
