Global Antihypertensive Drugs Market US$ 24.3 Billion by 2021

The global antihypertensive drugs market expected to reach US$ 24.3 billion by 2021, steadily declining at CAGR 2.5% over the forecast period 2017-2021, mainly due to patent expiration of blockbuster drugs and increasing generic competition worldwide.

Hypertension is the leading preventable cause of premature death worldwide. It is an important public health challenge in both economically developing and developed countries. The worldwide prevalence of hypertension is estimated to be about 40% in all adults. This represented a 5.2% increase in the global prevalence between 2000 and 2010, where the prevalence of hypertension decreased by 2.6% in high-income countries, but increased by 7.7% in low/middle–income countries due to numerous and varied obstacles in healthcare delivery and limited resources. Measures are required to prevent the development of hypertension and to improve awareness, treatment and control of hypertension globally.

Antihypertensive Drugs Market

Antihypertensive drugs are used to treat high blood pressure and its complications, such as stroke and myocardial infarction. The most important and most widely used drugs include thiazide diuretics, calcium channel blockers, ACE inhibitors, angiotensin II receptor antagonists (ARBs), and beta blockers. These drugs can prevent heart failure, kidney failure and acute stroke induced by hypertension and delay the development of atherosclerosis by controlling the blood pressure. Although clinical evidence shows calcium channel blockers and thiazide-type diuretics are preferred first-line treatments, an ACE inhibitor is recommended by NICE in the UK for those under 55 years old. Angiotensin II receptor blockers (ARBs) comprises several leading brands such as Benicar (olmesartan medoxomil), Diovan (valsartan) and Micardis (telmisartan). The ‘others’ category includes endothelin receptor antagonists such as Tracleer, Opsumit (bosentan and macitentan) and Letairis (ambrisentan). All drug classes, except fixed-dose combinations (FDCs), represent sales of monotherapies. The antihypertensive drugs currently in the phase III clinical development includes Amlodipine/celecoxib, Azilsartan/amlodipine/ hydrochlorothiazide, Bardoxolone methyl, Candesartan cilexetil/nifedipine, Candesartan cilexetil/rosuvastatin, CS 3150, Esuberaprost, Fimasartan/amlodipine, Fimasartan/hydrochlorothiazide, HCP 1401 and HCP1305, Nitric oxide inhalation (INOpulse), Telmisartan/amlodipine/ chlorthalidone, Telmisartan/chlorthalidone, alsartan/amlodipine/rosuvastatin, and Valsartan/pitavastatin.
