Celiac disease is an autoimmune disease that occurs in individuals who consume gluten-containing foods but are intolerant to gluten, a protein found in many grains, such as wheat, rye, and barley. In celiac disease, the body's immune system attacks and destroys the villi of the small intestine and thus interferes with nutrient absorption. Celiac disease can be difficult to diagnose because the symptoms vary between individuals and are non-specific, such as abdominal bloating and pain, diarrhea, constipation, and weight loss. Short-term malicious effects of untreated celiac disease include malnutrition, vitamin and mineral deficiency, and anemia, whereas long-term effects include bone diseases, cancers, and liver diseases. Celiac disease can arise in individuals of all ages and current epidemiological studies estimate that celiac disease affects around 1% of the population in western countries, with a range of between 0.3-2.7%.

GlobalData epidemiologists forecast that the number of total prevalent cases of celiac disease in the 6MM is expected to grow to 8.08 million cases in 2023 at a rate of 3.92% per year during the forecast period. The number of diagnosed prevalent cases in the 6MM is expected to increase by 4.61% over the next decade to 1.11 million cases in 2023.

GlobalData's forecast and analysis is based on a thorough literature review and from primary research results. GlobalData epidemiologists carefully reviewed and selected secondary research studies and validated the findings with primary research. GlobalData epidemiologists maintained a consistent case-finding definition and forecasting methodology for celiac disease throughout the 6MM, thus allowing for a meaningful comparison of the total and diagnosed prevalent cases of celiac disease in these markets. The total prevalent cases of celiac disease are also segmented by sex, thus providing a detailed analysis of the patient population characteristic of celiac disease. Furthermore, GlobalData epidemiologists also provided a realistic trend forecast for the total and diagnosed prevalence of celiac disease based on insights gained through the analysis of historical data.


* The celiac disease EpiCast Report provide an overview of the risk factors, comorbidities, and the global and historical trends for celiac disease in the six major markets (6MM) (US, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, and UK). In addition, the report also includes a 10-year epidemiological forecast for the total prevalent cases of celiac disease segmented by sex and age (0-19 years, 20-29 years, 30-39 years, 40-49 years, 50-59 years, 60-69 years, and =70 years), and a 10-year epidemiological forecast for the diagnosed prevalent cases of celiac disease in the 6MM.
* The celiac disease epidemiology report is written and developed by Masters- and PhD-level epidemiologists.
