Anticoagulants Market By Drug Class (Novel Oral Anticoagulants (NOACs), Vitamin K Antagonists, Heparins & Low Molecular Weight Heparins (LMWH), Antiplatelet Agents, Thrombolytic Agents, Direct Thrombin Inhibitors), By Application (Atrial Fibrillation & Heart Attacks, Strokes, Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT), Pulmonary Embolism) - Growth, Future Prospects, Competitive Analysis, 2018 - 2026

The global anticoagulants market was valued at US$ 33,150.7 Mn in 2017 and expected to grow at compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 6.6% during the forecast period from 2018 to 2026. Anticoagulants are prescribed to patients who are at higher risk of clot formation in the blood and reduce the risk of serious conditions such as strokes and heart attacks. Anticoagulants are also given to treat pulmonary embolism, deep vein thrombosis (DVT), atrial fibrillation and other cardiovascular diseases. Thus, increasing prevalence of cardiovascular diseases, especially DVT, atrial fibrillation and peripheral artery diseases is a major growth factor assisting the market. Launch of several novel oral anticoagulants (NOACs) with improved properties in the last decade has completely changed the market scenario over the years. Warfarin a vitamin K antagonists was the most preferred anticoagulants earlier as it was efficient in inhibiting the vitamin K recycling. However, use of warfarin had certain limitations such as continuous monitoring of international normalized ratio (INR) i.e. drug levels and drug-food & drug-drug interactions, acting as the drawbacks for the market.

NOACs are also referred as non-vitamin K antagonist oral anticoagulants, consisting for coagulation factors Xa inhibitors, factor IIa inhibitors and direct thrombin inhibitors which has faster onset of drug and lowered side effects compared to other drugs. The currently marketed NOACs include babigatran (Pradaxa), rivaroxaban (Xarelto), apixaban (Eliquis), edoxaban (Lixiana/Savaysa) and betrixaban (Bevyxxa). Xarelto by Bayer/ Janssen Pharmaceuticals and Eliquis by Pfizer/ Bristol-Myers Squibb are the most prescribed NOACs globally owing to impressing efficacy rate in the trials, lower side-effects such as uncontrollable bleeding and the ability of the drugs to treat multiple indications, provide an upper hand in the market. Bevyxxa by Portola Pharmaceuticals was the latest addition in the market, getting U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approval in June 2017 and launched in January 2018 for prophylaxis of venous thromboembolism (VTE). This will further drive the market for anticoagulants market.
