EpiCast Report: Dyslipidemia Epidemiology Forecast to 2022


Dyslipidemia is a condition in which one or more blood lipid levels are abnormal. It is an underdiagnosed, undertreated, and highly prevalent disease worldwide. Prevalent cases of dyslipidemia in the nine markets is expected to increase from 443.8 million cases in 2012 to 522.0 million cases in 2022 at the rate of 1.76% per year. Factors that influence prevalence include risk factors, disease management, awareness of disease status, population growth, and changes in diagnosis and treatment guidelines. In 2012, India had the highest number of prevalent dyslipidemia cases in the nine major markets at 192.7 million, followed by China at 84.7 million, and the US at 48.6 million. These three countries will continue to dominate in the number of prevalent cases through 2022, during which they will be expected to contribute to 65.6% of the total 522.0 million prevalent cases of all markets combined. This trend is driven mainly by the large populations as the prevalence rates are relatively low in these countries. EU countries such as Germany, Spain, and the UK had prevalence rates that were two or three times that of the other countries. The sex gap for dyslipidemia prevalent cases in the nine markets is not significantly high in this analysis. However, age-group analysis showed that dyslipidemia is most prevalent in people ages 4069 years. The prevalence of dyslipidemia is also affected by the diagnosis and treatment guidelines followed by each country. An update in the ATP guidelines, ATP-IV, is expected to be released at the end of 2012 or 2013 and may impact the prevalent cases forecast.


  • The dyslipidemia EpiCast Report provide an overview of the risk factors and global trends of dyslipidemia in seven major markets (the US, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, the UK, and Japan) in addition to two emerging marketsIndia and China.
  • It includes a 10-year epidemiological forecast of dyslipidemia prevalence segmented by sex and age (by 5-year age groups beginning at 20 years of age) to 2022.
