Alzheimer's disease is a type of dementia which includes a broad group of brain diseases, such as problems with memory, thinking, and behavior for long term. Causes of Alzheimer’s diseases are still unknown. Alzheimer’s symptoms usually grow slowly and get worse over time. It becomes severe, enough to obstruct a patient’s daily activity. Many researchers consider increasing level of a protein called amyloid in the brain as one of the major causes of Alzheimer disease. It may cause the death of the nerve cells. Major risk factor for Alzheimer disease is growing age wherein people aged 65 and older majorly tend to suffer from Alzheimer disease. Additionally, there are also some genetic and some other causes of Alzheimer diseases. At this moment there is no treatment which can stop the growth of the Alzheimer’s disease. But scientist and researchers are working continuously on it. 

According to Center of Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), in 2017 near about 5.5 million Americans were suffering from Alzheimer’s diseases. Alzheimer is considered as the fifth leading cause of death for all adults. The market is mainly driven by the growing occurrence of diseases in developed countries specifically in the Western region. Also, the prevalence of some neurodegenerative diseases such as dementia has grown in the U.S. In addition, growing occurrence of diseases, firm government encouragement for Alzheimer’s drug development and growing alertness about the treatment of Alzheimer ’s disease is resulting into increased demand for Alzheimer’s drugs market. Furthermore, growing support for psychological care infrastructure from governments in several developing Asia Pacific countries is likely to drive the Alzheimer's drugs market. However, high prices of the advance drugs may create restraints in underdeveloped countries. Awareness about Alzheimer’s disease in developing regions remains restricted that has resulted in unbalanced healthcare systems and obstructive research infrastructure. In Asia Pacific region, growing encouragement for mental care by governments is anticipated to drive the Alzheimer's drugs market in the near future.
