STUDY GOALS AND OBJECTIVES
The overall goal of this study is to provide a comprehensive understanding of the current and future characteristics of the global market for enzyme inhibitors.
This report explores present and future strategies within the market for enzyme inhibitors, which includes proton pump inhibitors (PPIs), protease inhibitors, reverse transcriptase inhibitors, kinase inhibitors, statins, aromatase inhibitors, phosphodiesterase type 5 (PDE5) inhibitors, neuraminidase inhibitors, and angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors. The improvements in the market and the setbacks and needs of the market are discussed in this report. The comparisons, usage, and advantages and disadvantages of different types of enzyme inhibitors are also discussed in this report.
A detailed analysis of the enzyme inhibitors industry structure has been conducted. Revenues are broken down by region. Sales figures are estimated for the five-year forecast period of this report, from 2011 to 2016.
Applications for enzyme inhibitors are also discussed in the report, with emphasis on the usage of the inhibitors in therapeutic categories and various disease sectors. The report also covers significant patents and their allotments in each category.
REASONS FOR DOING THE STUDY
Extensive research in the field of enzyme inhibitors has revealed their target-specific functionality in being able to provide therapeutic treatments for various chronic diseases. Modern industries have now begun to explore the advantages of enzyme inhibitors in their productions and processes. This has led to steady market growth for enzyme inhibitors.
Research and development (R&D) spending, along with increasing competition, patent expirations and new technologies, is directing this to a new level. Although, due to patent expirations, the overall revenue for the market has decreased slightly from 2009 to 2011, new advancements, new product launches and the changing lifestyle will cause the market to grow in the foreseeable future. This study looks at almost all the systems affected by these factors.
Acquisition strategies and collaborations by companies are also covered in this report. This study also discusses the strengths and weaknesses of each type/technology in light of the new technologies, growing competition and changing customer needs.
CONTRIBUTIONS OF THE STUDY AND INTENDED AUDIENCE
This report provides invaluable information to manufacturers and users of PPIs, protease inhibitors, reverse transcriptase inhibitors, kinase inhibitors, statins, aromatase inhibitors, PDE5 inhibitors, neuraminidase inhibitors, and ACE inhibitors. Pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies, research institutes, and physicians will find this study to be of interest.
SCOPE OF REPORT
The scope of this study encompasses enzyme inhibitors in the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industry. BCC Research analyzes each market and its applications, regulatory environment, technology involved, market projections and market share. Technological issues include the latest trends and developments. Emerging markets for enzyme inhibitors include countries such as India, China, Japan, Korea, Taiwan, Canada, Africa, Australia and New Zealand.
METHODOLOGY AND INFORMATION SOURCES
BCC conducted a comprehensive literature search, which included technical newsletters and journals. The data were collected through interviews and correspondence with technical experts manufacturing enzyme inhibitors. Projections were based on estimates such as the current number of end users, potential end users, mergers and acquisitions, and market trends.
Many companies within the industry were surveyed to obtain data for this study. Included were manufacturers and end users of enzyme inhibitors in therapeutic categories and various disease sectors industries. The data were carefully collected from various industry sources. BCC spoke with officials within the industry and consulted newsletters; company and product literature; and a host of technical articles, journals, indexes and abstracts. Exhaustive investigations of databases by key terminology were completed. In addition, the data were compiled from current financial, trade and government sources.
The study has been carried out by a team of professionals in the biotechnology industry. The project manager for this project is Shalini S. Dewan, who holds a master’s degree in pharmaceutical chemistry and has more than 14 years of industry experience. Among the research topics she has covered are studies on compounds of potential pharmaceutical interest from ibuprofen and 2-naphthyl acetic acid. Dewan was awarded a Gold Medal by the prime minister of India for her work and has worked with top companies in India and in the U.S. Some of her other reports with BCC are Reagents for Chromatography; Spectroscopy, An Enduring Market; Advanced Drug Delivery Systems: Technologies and Global Markets; Orthopedic Drugs, Implants and Devices; Medical Imaging Reagents and Analysis Equipment; Pharmaceutical Regulatory Industry; The Dynamic Media, Sera and Reagent Market in Biotechnology; Contract Pharmaceutical Manufacturing, Research and Packaging: Global Markets; Chiral Technology: Global Markets; Autacoids and Related Drugs: Technologies and Global Markets; Contraceptives: Technologies and Global Markets; Liver Disease Treatments: The Global Market; Hormone Replacement Therapies and Other Hormone Therapies: Global Markets; Cardiovascular Medicine: Diagnostics, Drugs and Devices; and Cancer Therapies: Technologies and Global Markets.
The lead consultant for this project is Dr. Kapil A. Setia, who has a doctorate in life sciences. She has a number of research publications in her credit, including her thesis on “Studies on Phenotypic Variation, Clonal Propagation and Phyto-chemistry of Tinospora cordifolia (Willd.),” which was given an award of excellence.
