Other major driving factors of Alzheimer’s drugs market are, several neurodegenerative diseases have become increasingly prevalent in the developing countries such as the U.S. in the past few years. This is leading to a steady support from the government to develop a drug for treatment.  However, high prices of the advanced drugs can create restraints to the Alzheimer’s drugs market in the developing countries like the Asia Pacific. Additionally, awareness about Alzheimer’s disease remains restricted, which has resulted in unstable healthcare systems and uncooperative research infrastructure in developing countries may limit the growth of the market.
