Like few other health parameters, one of the interesting studies found that testosterone levels in men are lower than what they used to be a few decades ago. A study on quite a large American sample established the fact that the average testosterone level is dropping by as much as 1 percent per year. While testosterone levels lower naturally with age or any medical conditions, this study found out that a 65-year-old man in 1987 had about 17 percent more testosterone than a 65- year-old man in 2004.
According to a survey by New England Research Institute scientists on around 1500 participants aged between 30 to 79, over 5.6 percent of people showed clinical symptoms of androgen deficiency. Based on these results, extrapolated data showed by 2025 there may be as many as 6.5 million American men between 30 and 79 years of age with symptomatic androgen deficiency, an increase of 38 percent from the year 2000 population estimates.
While the symptoms are typically associated with low libido, in reality, dip in testosterone has physiological and psychological health concerns including Muscle atrophy, chronic fatigue, Osteoporosis, Heart attack, and Depression.
Rise and Fall of the Testosterone Replacement Therapy
The growing prevalence of hypogonadism matched with an equally booming Testosterone market. By 2010-2011, testosterone had a fivefold increase in prescription becoming one of the most widely prescribed medications in the USA. Testosterone replacement therapy (TRT) saw a dramatic growth of sales from US$18 million in the 1980s to US$1.6 billion in 2011.
But the trends from decades of use of TRT was very revealing. While this therapy was intended primarily for old age people, it was found that between 2003 and 2013, TRT use increased fourfold in men between 18 to 45 years old compared to threefold in older men. This overprescription in a different age group led scientists to explore the role of TRT in permanent infertility, development of prostate cancer, increased risk of heart stroke. Moreover, National Institute of Health supported trials of TRT on older men reported inconsistent results.
Amidst all this, while hypogonadism is on the rise, the global TRT industry is looking at a negative growth. According to Transparency Market Research, testosterone replacement therapy revenues will reach US$1.3 bn globally in 2024, down noticeably from US$2.0 bn in 2015. This translates to a (-4.2)% CAGR for the market from 2016 to 2024.
While a slew of factors contributes to this negative growth, including patent cliff, perceived cardiovascular risk, potential infertility, customer awareness and a multitude of options plays a greater challenge to this industry.
Emerging Natural Testosterone Booster Market
A rising inclination towards natural ways to restore health and wellness, surging spending on natural products are the key factors contributing to the growth of the global herbal supplement market which is estimated to reach $8.5 billion by 2025.
To restore their testosterone levels naturally, people are increasingly turning towards an integrated solution of diet, exercise, and natural supplement which are safe for health. The USA holds around 84% of the total current TRT consumption market share worth USD 1.8 billion dollars. A significant share of this population is realizing the adverse effects associated with TRT and are willing to try out the natural alternatives giving a boost to the natural testosterone supplement market.
