The lifetime risk of osteoporotic fracture is 50% in women and 10%-30% in men (Randell et al., 1995). The morbidity and mortality associated with osteoporotic fractures make osteoporosis a global health burden, second only to cardiovascular disease (Woolf, 2000).

Over the next decade, there will be a 26.8% increase in the prevalent cases of osteoporosis in the nine markets. In 2012, there were 164 million prevalent cases of osteoporosis in the nine markets, with more than 100 million cases in India and China. GlobalData epidemiologists forecast that there will be 208 million prevalent cases in the nine markets by 2022, with 142 million cases in India and China. GlobalData epidemiologists forecast that the number of prevalent cases of osteoporosis will increase dramatically in all nine markets during the forecast period.

Because they chose a conservative approach and applied the same prevalence rate during the forecast period, the change in the number of prevalent cases can be attributed to the projected changing demographics in the population over the age of 40 in each of the nine markets. In the absence of comparable historical data for osteoporosis, GlobalData epidemiologists assumed that the most recently published prevalence data would be reflective of the disease prevalence over the next decade. However, such an approach is also likely to underestimate the number of prevalent cases of osteoporosis in the emerging markets.
