Visiongain’ has launched a new pharma report Global Cholesterol-Lowering Drugs Market 2017-2027: Statins and Fixed-Dose Combinations, Cholesterol Absorption Inhibitors, Ion Exchange Resins, Fibrates, PCSK9 Inhibitors, Novel Drugs

Shifting diets and lifestyle choices are associated with increases in wealth and the level of development of a country’s economy. With the rapid growth seen in markets such as the BRIC markets, as well as other nations such as Mexico, rates of high cholesterol have been increasing in these nations. Many of the drugs currently used for the control of cholesterol levels have or are soon going to see their patents expire, allowing for generic competition. This has been particularly prevalent among statins, as many of these were developed some time ago.

There is a strong pipeline for cholesterol-lowering drugs; many of which will launch within the next two to three years. New drug classes such as PCSK9 inhibitors will open up new areas of treatment, as they allow further treatment of patients with very high cholesterol levels. The impact of new treatments will lead to a significant rise in global revenues in the market. The addition of further indications for these new products at a later date would allow for further expansion of their use.

The lead analyst of the report commented “Visiongain believes the major drivers of growth in the global cholesterol-lowering drugs market will be: increasing demand for cholesterol-lowering drugs due to population growth and the increasing prevalence of high cholesterol, improvements in the management and treatment of high cholesterol, increasing healthcare expenditure, especially in a number of emerging economies and he launch of new drugs such as PCSK9 inhibitors”

Leading companies featured in the report include AstraZeneca, Merck & Co, Pfizer, Kowa Company, Daiichi Sankyo, AbbVie, Novartis, Sanofi, Amgen, Bristol-Myers Squibb (BMS).
