Acute Coronary Syndrome: A Global Market Report
San Jose, CA (PRWEB) April 5, 2010
The world Acute Coronary Syndrome (ACS) therapeutics market is dominated by industrialized economies. Sales of ACS drugs are escalating in emerging economies of Brazil, China, India, Mexico, Russia, South Korea, and Turkey. Improving primary care that is extending access of both branded and generic drugs, even to rural areas, as well as the growing uptake of private health insurance are defining trends in these regional markets. The ACS drugs market will continue to benefit from developing economies where the healthcare focus is moving away from combating infectious diseases to controlling and managing serious illnesses, as stated by the new market research report on acute coronary syndrome market.
Among the ACS drug categories, slow growth is particularly evident in antihyperlipidemics, which is witnessing contraction in value sales for statins such as Lipitor, as they face threat of genericization. In contrast is the performance of antithrombotics category where sales are robust and are being driven by Plavix and Lovenox. Though both face genericization, a powerful antithrombosis drug development pipeline featuring GPIIb/IIIa inhibitors, Factor Xa inhibitors and oral direct thrombin inhibitors, exhibits promising results for this category. Despite a strong pipeline, any new product is unlikely to have potential to replace statins, ensuring that statins will continue to be the drug of choice for lowering cholesterol. As several branded products are lined to lose patent protection between 2010 and 2012, cheaper generics will become more commonplace affecting dollar sales growth.
