Cardiovascular Therapeutic Drugs: Technologies and Global Markets
The global cardiovascular therapeutic drug market was worth $140.7 billion in 2009, and is expected to grow by a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 2.7% to $144.5 billion in 2010. This market will experience a sizable reduction in the early portion of the forecast period, and then slowly rise to reach $139.8 billion in 2015, a CAGR of -0.7%.
The hypertension segment recorded $64.9 billion in sales in 2009. By a large margin, hypertension is the largest segment within the cardiovascular market, driven by a large number of billion-dollar-plus therapies. The market is expected to grow to $65.3 billion in 2010 and experience a reduction through 2015 to $53.7 billion, a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of -3.9%.
Treatment for hyperlipidemia recorded sales of more than $33 billion in 2009. Large therapeutic drugs including Lipitor and Crestor comprise a high concentration of this segment. Driven by patent expirations for Lipitor, and other drugs within this segment, the segment will shrink to about $26 billion by 2015, a CAGR of -4.3%.
STUDY GOALS AND OBJECTIVES
This study provides a comprehensive analysis of cardiovascular therapies on a global basis. Its aim is to provide a range of information, from detailed product analyses within disease subsegments to overall industry trends, in order to quantify and qualify the market for therapeutic drug products in the cardiovascular segment. Individual products are forecast on a global basis, as are overall segments. Forecasts and trends are developed from a cross-reference of data points, gleaned from proprietary industry sources, company publications, industry benchmarking, and other divergent data sources to arrive at a cogent and coordinated forecast.
