Growth of Middle Class Is Causing Heart Drugs Market In Asia Pacific To Accelerate, Says TBRC

Share Article

TBRC's analysis says that the cardiovascular drugs market will be the fastest (5% a year) in Asia-Pacific region which is supported by the size of the population in the region, especially an increased number of old people in China.

The Asia Pacific market for drugs to treat heart diseases hardly grew from 2010 to 2016 but then growth accelerated and is expected to continue at 5% or more per annum to 2020. 5% a year is above the global average of 2.2%, which is dragged down by very slow growth in the big markets of North America and Western Europe. In fact, it makes Asia Pacific the fastest-growing market in the world for cardiovascular drugs.

The cardiovascular segment covers drugs used to treat conditions that affect the heart or blood vessels. These conditions include heart attacks and heart failure, strokes, coronary artery disease, valvular diseases, peripheral venous diseases, pericarditis, endocarditis, arteriosclerosis and lymphatic diseases. The 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.

The size and growth of a regional market such as Asia Pacific for drugs is related to many factors - size of population, and especially of the older population, and GDP per capita, but also regulatory systems and physician attitudes as well as disease incidence. New drugs tend to be more expensive, while those out of patent can see their price lowered dramatically by the advent of generics, which have seen major growth in India and China. Both the relatively slow growth of the heart drug market in Asia Pacific and its acceleration going forward can be explained by demographic and economic factors: the populations of both the two largest countries, India and China, are huge and young, so less vulnerable to heart disease, but in China have now started to age. And economic growth in the region has recently led to the growth of a large middle class with both a sedentary lifestyle to produce heart disease and the financial wherewithal to pay for drugs to treat it. Continuing high sales of tobacco may be another factor influencing this segment.
