Segment Analysis

Statins are representing the largest market share in the drug class segment for lipid lowering drugs market. It is the most frequently prescribed medication for lowering the high blood cholesterol levels via the inhibition of HMG-CoA (hydroxymethylglutaryl-coenzyme A) reductase which is a rate-limiting enzyme in the cholesterol biosynthesis pathway. In the last 2 decades, it has been vital in lowering the mortality rate associated with coronary artery disease worldwide. PCSK9 inhibitors are expected to highlight excellent market growth during the forecast period owing to its pronounced therapeutic efficacy in statin-intolerant and statin resistant patients. It is vital in lowering the number of LDLR expression in the hepatocytes and enhances its metabolism by promoting its subsequent degradation.

Hospital pharmacy is reigning the distribution channel segment for lipid lowering drugs market. Precise dispensing of lipid lowering drugs by hospital pharmacists is mandatory as the majority of them are associated with serious side effects such as skin rashes, dizziness, sleep problems, etc. Retail pharmacy is expected to grow at a comfortable pace owing of the provision of government-subsidized lipid lowering drugs at lower affordable prices in the retail stores of the developing region.

North America is presently leading the geography segment for lipid lowering drugs market. The growing incidence of high blood cholesterol levels among the young population primarily drives the market growth in the region. The presence of well-established healthcare infrastructure and affordable reimbursement scenarios together accentuate the market growth in the region. Furthermore, the domicile of major players such as Pfizer, Inc., Amgen, Inc., Merck Co., Inc., AbbVie, Inc., etc further propels the market growth in the region. Europe is the second-largest regional segment due to the effective implementation of the treatment guidelines postulated by the European Medical Agency (EMA), for the treatment of hyperlipidemia prevalent in the region. The Asia Pacific is anticipated to be the fastest-growing regional segment for the lipid lowering drugs market. An unhealthy lifestyle, craving for junk food, stress, etc. are responsible for the market growth in the region.
