Vanishing Bone Disease Market Overview
Global vanishing bone disease market size is expected to exhibit a steady 6.1% CAGR over the forecast period from 2018 to 2023, according to the latest research report from Market Research Future (MRFR).
Vanishing bone disease, also known as Gorham-Stout syndrome, is a skeletal disease that manifests as progressive osteolysis and proliferation of lymphatic vessels in the bones. The proliferation of lymphatic vessels leads to absorption of the bone, worsening the condition. Bones affected by vanishing bone disease are also more prone to osteopenia and fractures, due to the basic reduction in bone mass and strength. Vanishing bone disease is a relatively rare disease, affecting less than 200 people in the world every year. However, growing awareness about the disease is likely to drive the global vanishing bone disease market over the forecast period.
Rare diseases are becoming increasingly important for the healthcare sector in developed economies due to the increasing cumulative financial burden of rare diseases. Although rare diseases are rare in isolation, there are around 7,000 diseases classified as rare in the U.S., leading to a cumulative prevalence equal to type 2 diabetes. The increasing government efforts to eradicate rare diseases are likely to be a major driver for the global vanishing bone disease market over the forecast period.
On the other hand, challenges in diagnosing vanishing bone disease are likely to hinder the market over the forecast period. The lack of awareness about vanishing bone disease in emerging countries as well as the high costs of treatment are also likely to be a major restraint for the market over the forecast period.

Europe is also a leading market for vanishing bone disease, due to the strong medical research sector in the region. Around 30 million Europeans are affected by rare diseases every year, which is likely to drive research efforts in the field over the forecast period.
The rising prevalence of rare diseases in Asia Pacific is likely to drive the market over the forecast period, though Asia Pacific is likely to remain behind North America and Europe due to the strong presence of the medical research sector in the latter. The Middle East, Africa, and Latin America are likely to hold the smallest share in the global vanishing bone disease market over the forecast period due to the low awareness about the disease and the lack of a competent medical research sector.
