Manufacturers’ Reliance on R&D Activities to Remain High in Anticoagulants Market

The emergence of online pharmacies is influencing the increasing sales of anticoagulant drugs. Players operating in the anticoagulants market are progressively adopting online sales channels to broaden their reach with low capital investment. On the demand side, surging incidence of heart attacks, on the backdrop of unhealthy lifestyles adopted by individuals, is projected to widen the patient pool for the anticoagulants market during the forecast period (2020-2026). The demand for anticoagulants has also recorded a notable growth from developing countries, given the financial support offered by central authorities to revamp healthcare facilities and upgrade service quality.

Sensing high growth prospects of the anticoagulants market, leading players are leveraging research & development activities, which is increasing the number of pipeline drugs.

Conventional Hold of Warfarin Could Negatively Impact Sales of Anticoagulants

The popularity of conventional drugs such as warfarin is high, especially in developing countries, owing to their cost-benefits. The monthly cost of generic warfarin is in the range of ~US$ 16 t0 ~US$ 20, while that of a monthly supply of NOAC is tantamount to ~US$ 70. Given this influence, the demand for advanced anticoagulants is likely to get impeded during the forecast period. In addition, these drugs are used for long-term treatment, which requires individuals to allocate an additional budget for these advanced drugs for a long duration. As a result, individuals residing in India, China, Brazil, and similar developing countries are showing reluctance in buying advanced anticoagulants.

Another aspect that players in the anticoagulants market need to focus on is increasing awareness about the side effects caused by the consumption of NOACs. Patients undergoing treatment of anticoagulant disorders have reported side effects of NOAC, which include excessive bleeding, vomiting, and nausea. Despite having fewer side effects than conventional drugs, the acceptance of NOAC is low, thereby limiting the growth prospects of the anticoagulants market during the forecast period.

Patent-Assistance Programs to Underpin Adoption of Anticoagulants

Players in the anticoagulants market are coming forward to shoulder the financial burden of individuals through patient-assistance programs, as an instrument to boost the exposure of anticoagulants. For instance, Bristol-Myers Squibb offers financial aid to patients to purchase medicines through the company’s foundation. However, the program offers assistance only to individuals who are residents of the U.S. and not insured by any privately- or publicly-held company. Besides this, Boehringer Ingelheim offers the PRADAXA savings card to buy medicines at minimum rates. Increase in the number of manufacturers taking financial initiatives is projected to boost the adoption of drugs during the forecast period.

Prominence of Heparins to Remain High in Developing Countries of Asia Pacific

In 2020, ~54% of sales of the total North American anticoagulants market are projected to arrive from cases of atrial fibrillation and heart attacks, and factor XA inhibitors will remain the preferred drug class. On a global level, the U.S. is found to have the highest obesity rate, with Canada occupying a position in the top 10 most obese countries across the world. Given the direct correlation between obesity and heart diseases, the sales of anticoagulants are high in the U.S., and are projected to grow during the forecast period. The high technological prowess of players operating in the North American anticoagulants market offers them an edge to produce effective drugs with utmost precision, which further accelerates the momentum of the regional market.

In contrast to this, healthcare facilities in Asia Pacific have transformed only recently, which has been drawing the attention of individuals towards the significance of ideal health. Central authorities and key healthcare organizations are devising guidelines to endorse the use of certain types of drugs to control anticoagulant disorders, which is boosting the growth of the Asia Pacific anticoagulants market. A shift from conventional heparins to factor XA inhibitors is seen in the developed countries of this region; however, the popularity of heparins is projected to remain high in developing countries during the forecast period.
