Immune thrombocytopenia (ITP) is an autoimmune syndrome involving the antibody- and cell-mediated destruction of platelets and the suppression of platelet production; this increases an affected individual’s susceptibility to bleeding. More specifically, the destruction and suppression of platelets are due to B cell (and sometimes CD8+ T cell) autoimmune reactions directed against circulating platelets and megakaryocytes. An ITP diagnosis is made when the platelet count is between 100 and 150 x 109/L. About 80% of all ITP cases are considered to be idiopathic, also known as primary ITP. The remaining 20% of ITP cases occur as a component of another clinically evident disorder, such as hepatitis C or systemic lupus erythematosus, or drug exposure; these cases are categorized as secondary ITP.

GlobalData epidemiologists selected nationally representative population-based studies, peer-reviewed journals, and registries (for example: GPRD, JIDIC) that used Read codes which are cross-referenced with ICD-9 and ICD-10 (D69.3) codes to diagnose ITP. ITP was defined as having platelet levels between 100-150 x 109/L.

In the 7MM, the diagnosed prevalent cases of primary and secondary ITP will increase from 359,208 cases in 2015 to 384,780 cases in 2025 at an annual growth rate (AGR) of 0.71%. The 5EU will have the highest number of diagnosed prevalent cases throughout the forecast period with 179,350 cases in 2015 and 191,229 cases in 2025, while Japan will have the lowest number of diagnosed prevalent cases with 24,468 in 2015 and 24,479 in 2025.

In the 7MM, the diagnosed incident cases of primary and secondary ITP will increase from 33,136 cases in 2015 to 35,364 cases in 2025, at an AGR of 0.67%.
