  • According to Transparency Market Research’s latest report on the global heparin market for the historical period 2017–2018 and forecast period 2019–2027, high incidence and mortality associated with coagulation disorders, commercialization of safe and cost-effective heparin products are projected to drive the global heparin market during the forecast period
  • According to the report, the global heparin market was valued at US$ 10.8 Bn in 2018 and is anticipated to expand at a CAGR of 6.8% from 2019 to 2027

High incidence and mortality associated with coagulation disorders and commercialization of safe and cost-effective heparin products: Key Drivers

  • Coagulation disorders such as venous thromboembolism (VTE) cause nearly half a Mn deaths in Europe each year. Astonishingly, the number of deaths due to VTE in Europe is more than the deaths collectively caused by AIDS, breast and prostate cancers, and highway accidents. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the annual incidence of VTE (DVT & PE) in general population is estimated to be around 0.1%. Moreover, it states that approximately 900,000 people are affected by DVT/PE in the U.S. every year and one third of the DVT/PE patients have a recurrence within a decade.
  • A report published by Bayer HealthCare in 2013 stated that the incidence of VTE is expected to increase by 8% by 2018. These statistics clearly indicate the rising demand for safe, reliable, and affordable anticoagulants which would act as a growth driver for the heparin market. The prevailing limitation in reversing the activity of naturally-derived low molecular weight heparin (LMWH) in case of overdose could lead to excessive bleeding and harm to patients with poor kidney function. In 2014, researchers at the Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute and the University of North Carolina (UNC) developed a synthetic form of LMWH that is safe and can be reversed in activity using an antidote called protamine. According to the research, this synthetic heparin is safer and cheaper than the currently available heparin which is derived from animals. Regulatory approval would generate even higher demand for this synthetic version while affecting the existing demand for naturally derived heparin.

Rising Geriatric Population is Affected More by Thrombosis Boost Market Growth

  • Venous thromboembolism (VTE) is highly common in the geriatric population; however, it can occur at any age. The incidence rate of various disease such as heart failure, which can lead to thrombosis and is likely to occur more in old age than compare to young age
  • Congestive heart failure is much more frequent in elderly people, with 85% of patients with heart failure being older than 65 years. The prevalence of atrial fibrillation increases three times in people aged 80 years and above, as compared to those aged less than 65 years. Such incidences increase the risk of pulmonary embolism, more in the geriatric population, as the geriatric population with heart failure have limited heart and lung function, and the symptoms caused by even a small pulmonary embolism are more noticeable.
  • Hence, rising geriatric population is expected to drive the market for heparin drugs during the forecast period

Presence of alternative anticoagulants impeding the sale of biological heparin products to Hamper Market

  • Presence of alternative anticoagulants such as warfarin, oral anticoagulants, and coumarins is restraining the market for heparin used in the treatment of embolism.
  • Warfarin has traditionally been the key preferred drug for anticoagulant therapy globally. Moreover, the advent of new anticoagulants such as rivaroxaban, dabigatran, and apixaban is cannibalizing the market share of heparin globally.
  • Heparin is derived from animal sources; hence, the risk of infection and contamination always exists. Although these substitutes also possess certain limitations in terms of side effects and drug interactions, a physician can prefer these drugs over heparin depending on the condition of the patient and the type of disorder.
