2020-2027 Analysis and Review Urokinase Market

Urokinase Market

Urokinase Market By Treatment (Pulmonary Embolism, Peripheral Intravascular Thrombus, Occluded Catheters and Others), By End Users (Hospital & Clinics, Ambulatory Surgical Centers and Others) - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends, and Forecast, 2020 – 2027

31-03-2020 REP-HC-5058 40 Tables 119 pages Format

The urokinase market was valued at USD1,359.8Mn by 2019. Rising prevalence of deep vein thrombosis in the adult population worldwide primarily drives the urokinase market growth. Furthermore constant rise in the number of catheter guided surgical procedures accentuates the urokinase market growth. The major obstacle faced by this market is the completion imposed by other thrombolytic agents such as alteplase, streptokinase, reteplase, etc.

 Urokinase Market

Urokinase is basically a serine protease found in humans and animals, it was discovered by Pilling and McFarlane in 1947 but urokinase received the FDA approval in 1978 as a thrombolytic agent.

Segment Analysis

Pulmonary embolism is currently representing the largest market share in the treatment segment for the urokinase market. According to the epidemiological data provided by the National Institute of Health (NIH), the incidence of pulmonary embolism is estimated to be 60 to 70 per 100,000 people worldwide. Pulmonary embolism is reported due to the blockage of the pulmonary artery, the most common cause is the formation of a blood clot in deep veins of the legs which travels to the lungs and get situated in a small pulmonary artery. Occluded catheters are anticipated to be the fastest-growing treatment segment during the forecast period on account of the significant increase in the number of catheters guided surgical procedures throughout the globe. It is estimated that 1 in 4 catheters gets occluded in the long term use of central venous access device. The different types of thrombus forming at the tip of the catheter are intraluminal thrombus, mural thrombus, fibrin sheath, etc.

Hospitals & clinics are spearheading the end-user segment for the urokinase market. Rising prevalence of venous thromboembolism patients and increasing demand for catheter guided surgical procedures in hospitals worldwide drives its market growth. Ambulatory surgical centers have gained strong grounds in the end-user segment on account of its ability to serve patients suffering from deep vein thrombosis residing in remote locations.

In the present scenario North America is dominating the geography segment for the urokinase market. According to the latest research citings provided by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), approximately 900,000 people in the United States are suffering from pulmonary embolism each year. Additionally domicile of major players such as Cadila Healthcare, Microbix Biosystems, Inc., etc. and favorable reimbursement scenario for urokinase together accentuates its market growth in the region. Europe is placed in the 2nd position in the regional segment for the urokinase market. As per the statistics provided by the European Commission report, annually approximately 465,715 people are suffering from venous thromboembolism in the European Union region. Furthermore the supportive regulatory environment provided by the European Medical Agency for the sale and distribution of urokinase further propels the market growth in the region. Asia Pacific is set to register rampant market growth in the near future on account of a significant rise in the medical tourism industry and increasing demand for catheter guided surgical procedures.
