Usually blood clotting plays a significant role in stopping external bleeding caused by an injury but when blood clots form inappropriately inside an artery or vein can cause serious issues such as heart attack and stroke. The formation of clots in blood vessels can stop the circulation of blood in the body that can even lead to death. So an agent is used that helps to eradicate the formation of blood clots in the body and is known as anticoagulant. Anticoagulants stop the platelets from sticking together and clotting proteins from binding together. Anticoagulants are popular drugs used in the treatment of deep vein thrombosis (DVT), atrial fibrillation, pulmonary embolism (PE) and reducing the risk of heart attack and brain stroke.
Due to the dynamics like rising aging population, more surgical procedures like knee or hip replacement in developed nations and prevalence of cardiovascular disease etc.; the global anticoagulants market is growing rapidly. There are two types of anticoagulants available in the market: oral and injectable. Anticoagulants market is categorized into five broad categories: unfractionated heparin, warfarin, low molecular weight heparin (LMWH), factor XA inhibitors and direct thrombin inhibitors. Among these, unfractionated heparin and LMWH are widely used injectable anticoagulants. LMWH are more convenient to use as these can be self-injected at home. Warfarin is an oral anticoagulant that has been used traditionally for patient suffering from atrial fibrillation.
The global anticoagulants market has increased with healthy growth rates over the years and is expected to grow further during the forecasted period (2016-2020). The global anticoagulant market is supported by a number of growth drivers such as increasing prevalence of deep vein thrombosis (DVT) & pulmonary embolism, rising aging population, increasing R&D expenses by pharmaceutical companies and rising cardiovascular diseases etc. Yet the market faces some challenges such as patent expiration of some popular anticoagulants like warfarin, stringent regulations by government and a number of side effects associated with the drugs.
