LONDON, GREATER LONDON , UK, June 21, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — The North American market for drugs to treat heart disease fell by 2.9% year on year from 2013 to 2017 and although growth has picked up to 1.7% that still means that by 2021 it will be 5% smaller than it was in 2013. Up to 2017 it remained North America's largest market for drugs but by 2021 it will be overtaken by the markets for treating metabolic disorders such as diabetes and thyroidism. Drugs for treating arthritis, osteoporosis and other musculoskeletal conditions will also be neck and neck with the cardiovascular drugs in the North American market by 2021.
The cardiovascular drugs category covers drugs used to treat conditions that include heart attack or failure, strokes, coronary artery diseases, valvular diseases, peripheral venous diseases, pericarditis, endocarditis, cardiac tumors, arteriosclerosis, and lymphatic diseases. Major cardiovascular drugs include anti-hypertensive drugs such as calcium channel blockers and angiotensin II receptor antagonists, and hypolipidemic drugs such as fibric acid derivatives and bile acid binding resins.
In a region such as North America, which largely consists of the highly developed countries the USA and Canada, but also includes Mexico, drug spend is related to disease incidence and the development of new high-priced patented drugs as well as to population growth or GDP per capita. While heart attacks and strokes are still the leading cause of death in the USA, other conditions such as diabetes have increased in significance due to obesity and other lifestyle factors. Population aging and the availability of new treatments for arthritis and osteoporosis are boosting the market for musculoskeletal drugs.
The market for cardiovascular drugs is performing less well than any other major segment globally as well as in North America, having fallen year on year by 2% to 2017 and set to grow by only 2.2% annually to 2021. In Western Europe it is declining year on year throughout the eight-year period. Even in Asia Pacific it is achieving only a little over 5% a year, compared with over 8% for the pharma market as a whole in that region.
The global cardiovascular drugs market is fragmented – nearly 70% goes to players outside the top ten. The USA's Merck and Co with a nearly 8% market share, is the market leader, followed by French pharma company Sanofi with around 5%.
