Anticoagulants Market Size

Anticoagulants Market size accounted for more than USD 39.2 billion in 2022 and is estimated to grow at a CAGR of over 9.5% from 2023 to 2032. Driven by the surging occurrence of chronic disorders worldwide.


Anticoagulants Market

Rising prevalence of chronic disorders such as deep vein thrombosis, and cardiovascular diseases which lead to blood clot formation has increased the need for anticoagulants. As per CDC, although the precise number of people diagnosed with deep vein thrombosis remains obscure, the condition can affect around 900,000 people every year in the U.S. alone. Moreover, the rising adoption of novel oral anticoagulants (NOACs) will further create a plethora of opportunities for market expansion. Benefits such as the rapid onset action, shorter half-life, and predictable pharmacokinetic action, have bolstered the adoption of NOACs.

COVID-19 Impact

The COVID-19 pandemic had a moderate impact on the anticoagulants market owing to supply chain disruptions caused by prolonged lockdowns. However, the surging prevalence of venous thromboembolism that led to blood clots in the veins of COVID-19 patients increased product uptake. For instance, in January 2021, WHO rolled-out a recommendation stating patients diagnosed with COVID-19, including confirmed and suspected cases, should have access to follow-up care with low-dose anticoagulants.

Anticoagulants Market Trends

Recent breakthroughs in genetic testing and pharmacogenomics will positively impact the industry landscape through 2032. These advancements have paved the way for personalized medicine approaches in anticoagulation therapy. Genetic variations can influence an individual's response to anticoagulant medications, including the risk of bleeding or thrombotic events. Tailoring the choice and dosing of anticoagulants based on a patient's genetic profile can significantly improve treatment outcomes and reduce adverse events.
