Anti-Platelet Drugs Market - Global Industry, Size, Share, Trends, and Forecast to 2026


Seattle, WA -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/10/2019 -- Antiplatelet therapy is considered to be crucial in preventing aberrant platelet activation in pathophysiological conditions such as ischemia, myocardial infarction, and stroke. According to the Indian Journal of Pharm Science 2007 study, antiplatelet drugs reduce the incidence of cardiovascular events by 20-25% in people with established Coronary Artery Disease (CAD) or at high risk of CAD.

Manufactures in the antiplatelet drugs market focus on targeting either surface receptors or enzymes in the platelet in order to protect against unwanted clot formation following initial platelet activation. Sustained development of new antiplatelet therapies is required as the risk for myocardial infarction and stroke, and death remain a persistent problem for individuals suffering from cardiovascular diseases.

Moreover, cost of drugs is also an important factor influencing compliance with treatment of disease and also constitutes an essential part of rational drug prescription. Pharmaceutical industry has several branded formulation of the same drug with large difference in selling price.

According to a study published in The International Journal of Basic & Clinical Pharmacology, 2016, the difference in the maximum and minimum price of the same drug manufactured by various pharmaceutical companies and percentage variation in cost per 10 tablets was calculated. Percentage variation in cost for oral antiplatelet drugs marketed in India was found to be- clopidogrel 150 mg tablet (148.7%), clopidogrel 75 mg (1067.3%), clopidogrel 300 mg tablet (42.9%), aspirin 75 mg (51.5%), aspirin 150 mg (69.8%), prasugrel 5 mg (94.4%), prasugrel 10 mg (54.8%), and ticlopidine 250 mg (32%).
