Cardiovascular drugs market covers the drugs used to treat conditions that affect the heart or blood vessels. These conditions include heart stroke, coronary artery diseases, valvular diseases, peripheral venous diseases, pericarditis, endocarditis, cardiac tumors, arteriosclerosis, and lymphatic diseases. Some of 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 major reasons why the global cardiovascular drugs market will increase from $130 billion in 2017 to $140 billion by 2021 are the increase in aging population, increase in the prevalence of cardiovascular diseases and availability of more generic drugs that reduce the cost of treatment.
In the report, the global cardiovascular drugs market is divided into four segments namely, anti-hypertensive drugs, other drugs for cardiovascular diseases, hypolipidemics and anti thrombotics. While the first and the second segment accounts for nearly three-fifth of the market, the remaining share is attributed to other two segments.
