Poor Lifestyle Choices Increase Risk of CVDs
The World Health Organization stated that about 31% of the deaths across the world in 2015 were due to cardiovascular diseases (CVD). Analysts anticipate that CVD related to the heart and blood are expected to remain on the rise in the coming years. Changing lifestyles, poor dietary intake, and genetic predisposition are expected to increase the demand for cardiovascular drugs in the near future. Poor lifestyle choices such as excessive drinking, smoking, and eating junk food have deteriorated heart health of a vast population base across the globe. Furthermore, conditions such as diabetes, high cholesterol, depression, and obesity have also played a significant role in spiking the demand for cardiovascular drugs all over the world.
Statistics presented by America Heart Foundation state that the number of people suffering from CVD are likely to reach 23.6 mn by the end of 2030. The alarming rise in the number is expected to increase the sale of cardiovascular drugs in the near future. Analysts predict that majority of the CVD patients have to be administered medicines for a long-term basis, which requires close monitoring. Growing number of drugs in the pipeline, improving approval rates, and better awareness about CVDs, especially in developing economies, has also had a major impact on the overall market. The surge in geriatric population and soaring number of diabetics around the world have also been identified as the key factors that will be responsible for the rise of this global market.
