Angina Pectoris Therapeutics - Pipeline Assessment and Market Forecasts to 2018

London, United Kingdom (PressExposure) January 17, 2012 -- Our exports estimated the global angina pectoris therapeutics market to be worth $9,655.4m in 2010. It is expected to grow to $12,707.4m by 2018 at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 3.5%. This growth can be primarily attributed to the rise in the number of patients undergoing treatment for angina pectoris and the expected approval of novel therapies such as Generx and varespladib, which are currently in late stage clinical development. However, if approved, these products are expected to be marketed at a premium price by their innovator companies when compared to other treatment options for angina. The reason why the launch of such products is at premium prices is attributed to the novel mechanism of action of these products which leads to a marked improvement in efficacy and safety over the currently marketed products. As a result the market penetration of these products is expected to remain low, limiting the growth rate of the angina pectoris therapeutics market. The forecast period will also witness patent expiries of major marketed products such as Lipitor (atorvastatin) in 2011, Aggrastat (tirofiban) in 2012, Angiomax/Angiox (bivalirudin) in 2015 in Europe and Crestor (rosuvastatin) in 2016. Such patent expiry of the major marketed products will attract generic versions of these drugs to the market. Therefore the angina pectoris therapeutics market is expected to witness moderate growth with a significant number of generics playing a major role in the forecasted period, which is similar to the present market scenario.

GlobalData assessed the current competitive landscape for angina pectoris drugs and found that competition is weak. All the available treatment options are moderately successful in meeting the market demand. Although the market has various treatment options available, none of them is able to manage angina pectoris adequately. The products currently available in the market are associated with average efficacy and safety profiles.

In addition,the current treatment options offer poor quality of life due to their lack of efficacy in reducing cardiovascular events and mortality. As the products currently in the market do not serve the unmet need, the market continues to offer opportunities for products in the pipeline with novel mechanism of action and disease modifying characteristics. The unmet need in the angina pectoris therapeutics market is considered to be significant and can be fulfilled by technologically advanced products with improved safety and efficacy profiles
