Global Heparin Market to Reach US$ 8.1 Billion by 2027, Propelled by the Increasing Prevalence of Numerous Medical Ailments

Published on Apr 19, 2020

The latest report by IMARC, titled “Heparin Market: Global Industry Trends, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2022-2027”, finds that the global heparin market size reached US$ 6.9 Billion by 2021. Heparin, also known as unfractionated heparin (UFH), is a naturally occurring glycosaminoglycan, which is used as an anticoagulant or a blood thinner. It is utilized post surgeries, dialysis and blood transfusion and is usually injected into the muscle or veins to break up clots and maintain smooth fluidity of the blood. It is also used widely to administer major orthopedic procedures, such as hip and knee replacements. In recent years, heparin has gained momentum due to the extensive adoption of this product for treating heart conditions and unstable angina.

We are regularly tracking the direct effect of COVID-19 on the market, along with the indirect influence of the associated industries. These observations will be integrated into the report.

Global Heparin Market Trends:

One of the primary factors driving the market is the increasing prevalence of numerous medical ailments, including deep vein thrombosis (DVT) and pulmonary embolism (PE). Additionally, heparin has proven its efficacy for venous thromboembolism and cardiovascular disorders (CVDs). Other than this, the easy availability of synthetic and semi-synthetic heparin mimetics that help cure coagulation, cancer, and inflammatory diseases, is positively influencing the market growth. Besides this, biopharmaceutical companies are introducing innovative medicines to improve the therapeutic potential of the drug and minimize its side-effects thus accelerating the product adoption rate. Moreover, the numerous technological upgradations in the field of carbohydrate synthesis, including coupling reactions, block preparation and the launch of convergent strategies, are catalyzing the market growth. Furthermore, extensive investment by the government of various nations for the improvement of healthcare facilities and vigorous research and development (R&D) activities to launch heparin with ultra-low molecular weight are creating lucrative growth opportunities for key players. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the market value to reach US$ 8.1 Billion by 2027, expanding at a CAGR of 2.57% during the forecast period (2022-2027).
