North America held more than 45% of market share in 2016. Increasing incidence of acromegaly and neuroendocrine tumor (NET) coupled with the rise in awareness and accuracy of disease diagnosis in developed economies is building a positive outlook for the acceptance of somatostatin analogs. Presence of favorable reimbursement policies, rise in the use of somatostatin analogs for treatment and, growing research and development activities in the North America is expected to have positive impact on market growth over the forecast period.
Asia Pacific is expected to exhibit the fastest growth over the forecast period owing to the rise in the research and development activities in the medical field and the launch of innovative drug formulations are the main factor driving the growth of somatostatin analogs market over the forecast period.
