* Gain insight into market potential, including a robust 10-year epidemiology forecast of total and symptomatic prevalent cases of BPH.
* Understand the key epidemiologic risk factors associated with benign prostatic hyperplasia.
Datamonitor expects to see an increase in the number of symptomatic benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) cases between 2010 and 2020 in the seven major markets. The number of symptomatic BPH cases is expected to increase from around 38.9 million cases in 2010 to 45.8 million cases in 2020.
The largest increase in the number of BPH cases is expected in the US for both total and symptomatic BPH. Between 2010 and 2020, the number of total prevalent cases of BPH will increase by 2.2% annually and the number of symptomatic BPH cases will increase by 2.4% annually.

DRIVERS OF BENIGN PROSTATIC HYPERPLASIA EPIDEMIOLOGY
Age and genetics are the most significant risk factors, with controversy surrounding many other risk factors
Age is the most important risk factor for benign prostatic hyperplasia
There is a significant genetic link in the development of BPH
Some lifestyle factors may have an association with increased risk of benign prostatic hyperplasia
Some studied factors have shown conflicting results or no association with increased risk of benign prostatic hyperplasia
Some lifestyle factors have been found to protect against benign prostatic hyperplasia
Physical activity and moderate alcohol intake have been shown to reduce the risk of benign prostatic hyperplasia
Diseases with high prevalence rates in the elderly are often co-morbid with benign prostatic hyperplasia
Cardiovascular disease risk factors are highly co-morbid with benign prostate hyperplasia
Type 2 diabetes mellitus is co-morbid with benign prostatic hyperplasia, both common in the elderly
