Jolted by the economic slowdown and the looming patent expiry of blockbuster drugs, the global hospital pharmaceuticals market is forecasted to exhibit a moderate CAGR of 3.9% between 2015 and 2023. Nevertheless, the increasing prevalence of chronic ailments worldwide, coupled with increasing healthcare spending is expected to keep the demand for hospital pharmaceuticals high in the near future. As per Transparency Market Research, the market stood at US$197.3 bn in 2014 and is expected to reach US$280.3 bn by the end of 2023. Emerging economies in Asia Pacific and Rest of the World are currently exhibiting highest demand for hospital pharmaceuticals. 

As per reports from the World Health Organization (WHO), annual cases of cancer globally are expected to reach 22 million by 2030. This combined with the rising incidence of parasitic infections will boost demand for anti-parasitic drugs, thus driving the global hospital pharmaceuticals market in the forthcoming years.

Increasing Pharmaceuticals Spending in U.S. Boosts Prospects of Hospital Pharmaceuticals in North America

Regionally, North America held the largest share in the global market in 2014. The recovery of the pharmaceutical industry and the rise in R&D activities between 2013 and 2014 have bolstered opportunities for the hospital pharmaceuticals market in North America. As per TMR analysis, the increasing spending on pharmaceuticals by the U.S. government has considerably aided in the expansion of the hospital pharmaceuticals market in North America. The market in the region is projected to surge at a CAGR of 3.4% between 2015 and 2023.

Europe has emerged as the second-largest market for hospital pharmaceuticals, primarily due to the presence of renowned research organizations in the region. The sound intellectual property protection norms prevalent in Europe have also helped the market to thrive in the region. However, the region lacks proper reimbursement policies and regulatory framework for encouraging the development of novel therapeutics. This could restrain the market’s growth in Europe.

In the meantime, surging opportunities in Latin America and Asia Pacific will compel vendors to shift their focus from developed economies to emerging nations. The large population base in Asia Pacific, coupled with the increasing spending on research and development of novel therapeutics will aid expansion of the hospital pharmaceuticals market in emerging economies.




Demand from Oncology Segment to Surge in Response to Increasing Incidence of Cancer

The increasing incidence of cancer worldwide has catapulted the oncology segment at the forefront of the global hospital pharmaceuticals market, by therapeutic class. Cancer types such as stomach, breast, liver, and lung cancer have emerged as the leading causes of deaths due to cancer. The market is forecasted to gain momentum from a strong product pipeline as more drugs receive FDA approvals in the future. Since cancer is often associated with a high mortality rate, scientists around the world are engaged in the discovery of better treatment options and more efficient drugs. Demand for oncology drugs is therefore expected to surge in the forthcoming years. TMR has pegged the oncology segment in the global hospital pharmaceuticals market to rise at a CAGR of 6.35% during the forecast period.

Besides this, the increasing incidence of cardiovascular diseases will also fuel demand from the global hospital pharmaceuticals market. The increasing government initiatives, growing diseases awareness, and therapeutic interventions aimed at curbing the incidence of cardiovascular ailments are likely to boost demand for relevant hospital pharmaceuticals.

Demand for anti-hypersensitive drugs is also expected to increase during the forecast period.

Some of the most prominent vendors operating in the global hospital pharmaceuticals market include Novartis, Pfizer, Roche, Sanofi, Merch &Co., AstraZeneca, GlaxoSmithKline, Johnson & Johnson, Gilead Sciences, and others.

Rise in the Number of Hospitals to Foster Growth of the Hospital Pharmaceuticals Market

Huge increase in the number of hospitals around the world, pharmaceutical firms are likely to observe a strong rise in opportunities for growth in the global hospital pharmaceuticals market. With a rise in the number of important pharmaceutical companies penetrating the domain of oncology, which is actually amongst the most profitable therapeutic sectors in the global hospital pharmaceuticals market, the competitive environment is likely to intensify.

The massive rise in occurrence of various chronic diseases like diabetes, cancer, and a multitude of cardiovascular conditions is likely to work in favor of the global hospital pharmaceuticals market in near future. In addition to that, increasing healthcare expenses throughout the developing countries are further likely to drive the demand for hospital pharmaceuticals in near future. The market is anticipated to expand in the face of increasing rate of parasitic infection, which has increased hospital demand for anti-parasitic drugs. The rising number of cancer patients is also another factor propelling the market forward, and it is predicted to continue to be a key driving force in the years to come.

High Prevalence of Diseases like Cancer and Cardiovascular Diseases to Boost Demand

According to World Health Organization (WHO) statistics, cardiovascular diseases account for approximately 31% of all fatalities worldwide each year. As a result, hospital pharmacies dispense a significant volume of medicinal and diagnostic drugs for cardiovascular problems. However, due to a high level of market saturation, the sector of cardiovascular diseases is expected to grow at a slower rate than other indications in the years to come. On the other hand, due to the rising number of cases of cancer detected each year around the world, the oncology sector is anticipated to see a massive increase in valuation. Increased prevalence of such diseases worldwide is likely to pave way for rapid growth of the global hospital pharmaceuticals market in near future.
