Epidemiology: Alzheimer's Disease

An estimated 35.6 million people worldwide will be living with dementia in 2010. The number of patients with dementia is expected to double approximately every 20 years. This is directly attributable to the 'graying' of the world's population. Alzheimer's disease is the most common form of dementia and accounts for an estimated 60 to 80% of cases.


  • Gain insight to market potential, including a robust 10-year epidemiology forecast of Alzheimer's disease prevalent cases.
  • Understand the key epidemiologic risk factors associated with Alzheimer's disease.


Datamonitor estimates that in 2019, nearly 3.2 million adults with Alzheimer's disease will be living in the US and the major European healthcare markets and approximately 8 million adults with Alzheimer's disease will be living in the seven major markets.

The large numbers of adults with Alzheimer's disease in these markets can be directly attributed to aging of the world's population. A substantial proportion of these elderly adults will live in the US and Japan, where the prevalence of Alzheimer's disease is highest.

Recent studies indicate that the annual growth rates for patient populations in Japan, France, and Italy will be highest during the years in our forecast (2010-2019).
