Anticoagulants Market size is set to surpass USD 51.9 billion by 2027, according to a new research report by Global Market Insights Inc.
Increasing incidence of coagulation disorders coupled with substantial growth in the number of individuals suffering from chronic diseases will drive the market growth. According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) report, approximately 900,000 individuals are affected by pulmonary embolism and deep vein thrombosis each year in the U.S. Such high pervasiveness of thromboembolism will increase the demand for anticoagulation treatment and is expected to propel the market expansion across the globe.
Increasing geriatric population across the globe will spur the market value
Geriatric population is prone to various chronic diseases such as deep vein thrombosis and pulmonary embolism that will positively influence the market revenue. Also, stroke is likely caused by blood clot that interrupts blood flow in the brain. The prevalence of stroke in geriatric population is 2% to 5% across the globe. Similarly, as per the World Stroke Organization report, around 60% of all DVT occurs in people over 50 years of age. Thus, rising incidence of stroke and DVT diseases across the world will increase the demand and is projected to drive the market demand. Furthermore, focus of market players on highly precise and upgraded anticoagulant products will augment the industry growth.
Stringent regulatory framework may hamper the anticoagulants market size
Complex regulatory landscape may act as a barrier in the industry expansion. The pharmaceutical and biotechnology industry is one of the highly regulated industries with various regulatory norms and many rules enforced by government to protect well-being and health of the public. For instance, the regulation of anticoagulant drugs assures safety and efficacy of drugs while providing rapid movement of innovative therapies through the investigative and regulatory processes. However, the process is too lengthy and often complex in nature. Thus, complex guidelines laid by various regulatory bodies for the safety and efficacy of anticoagulant drugs may slower the approval of new products, thereby limiting the market growth.
Various application of direct thrombin inhibitors for blood clotting disorder treatment will foster the industry revenue
The direct thrombin inhibitor segment accounted for 12.9% of the market share in 2020. Direct thrombin inhibitors are a novel class of drugs that have been developed as an effective alternative mode of anticoagulation. The drug is primarily used in patients suffering from heparin?induced thrombocytopaenia, who require dialysis, and for the management of thromboembolic disorders as well as acute coronary syndromes. Such applications of direct thrombin inhibitor for blood clotting disorders will augment the segment growth. Additionally, several novel direct thrombin inhibitors are in late-stage development for treatment of various disease condition that will boost the industry value.
