EpiCast Report: Alzheimer’s Disease - Epidemiology Forecast to 2026

Summary
Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is a subtype of dementia and is an irreversible, neurodegenerative brain disease of the elderly, characterized by the death of brain cells, which leads to a progressive decline in memory and cognitive abilities, such as thinking, language, and learning capacity (NIA, 2017). AD is the most common cause of dementia in people age 60 years and older, and accounts for approximately 75% of the total dementia cases worldwide.

To forecast the total prevalent cases of AD in adults ages 60 years and older in the 7MM during the forecast period (2016-2026), our epidemiologists identified country-specific population-based studies that used the diagnostic criteria based on the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, Fourth Edition, Revised (DSM-IV) to diagnose dementia, and the National Institute of Neurological and Communicative Disorders and Stroke-Alzheimer’s Disease and Related Disorders Association (NINCDS-ADRDA) criteria to diagnose AD.

In the 7MM, our epidemiologists forecast an increase in the total prevalent cases of AD from around 10.6 million total prevalent cases in 2016 to around 13.7 total prevalent cases in 2026, at an annual growth rate (AGR) of nearly 3% during the forecast period. Among the 7MM, the US will have the highest number of total prevalent cases of AD throughout the forecast period, while the UK will have the lowest.

Similarly, our epidemiologists forecast that the total prevalent cases of MCI in the 7MM will increase from over 28 million total prevalent cases in 2016 to around 34.5 million total prevalent cases in 2026 at an AGR of about 2%. Among the 7MM, the US will have the highest number of total prevalent cases of MCI throughout the forecast period, while Spain will have the lowest.

The report "EpiCast Report: Alzheimer’s Disease - Epidemiology Forecast to 2026", provides an overview of the risk factors, comorbidities, and the global and historical trends for AD in the seven major markets (7MM: US, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, UK, and Japan). The report includes a 10-year epidemiological forecast for the total prevalent cases of AD (diagnosed and undiagnosed) segmented by sex, age (ages 60 years and older), and severity in these markets. Additionally, the report includes a 10-year epidemiological forecast for the total prevalent cases of MCI segmented by sex and age (ages 60 years and older) in these markets.
