Adenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH) is produced and secreted by anterior pituitary gland. It is also called corticotropin, serum ACTH, etc. The hormone’s function is to regulate the levels of steroid hormone cortisol which is regulated by adrenal gland. ACTH is associated with diseases such as pituitary tumors and adrenal malfunctions. Deficiency of ACTH arises due to the absence or decreased production of adrenocorticotropic hormone, which leads to adrenal insufficiency.
This results into weight loss, weakness, anorexia, nausea, etc. ACTH deficiency can either be acquired or congenital. The deficiency can be caused due to improper functioning of the pituitary gland. However, the exact cause of the diseases is unknown.
Rise in prevalence of unhealthy lifestyles and increase in stress levels that lead to obesity which disturbs the levels of hormone are the major factors likely to propel the global ACTH deficiency treatment market during the forecast period.

Furthermore, rise in prevalence of pituitary malfunction such as isolated ACTH deficiency and panhypopituitarism is anticipated to fuel the growth of the global ACTH Deficiency Treatment market during the forecast period.
ACTH deficiency can also be caused due to hormonal therapy such as replacement of growth hormone or thyroid hormone. According to the Medicare Coverage of Routine Screening for Thyroid Dysfunction, the prevalence of thyroid dysfunction ranges from 1 to 10 adults.
