According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled “Ischemic Heart Disease (IHD) Drugs Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2020-2025”, the global Ischemic Heart Disease (IHD) drugs market is currently witnessing steady growth. Ischemic heart disease, also known as coronary heart (CHD) or coronary artery disease, refers to a heart problem in which the blood flow to the heart is restricted or reduced. This is caused by clogged arteries that supply less blood and oxygen to the heart muscles, eventually leading to a cardiac attack. The diverse pharmacological actions of various IHD drugs, such as calcium channel blockers, inhibit the influx of calcium ions into the myocardium and vascular smooth muscle tissues. The relaxation of the coronary artery due to calcium channel blocker therapy improves coronary blood flow, thereby increasing myocardial oxygen supply. The anti-ischemic effects of these drugs are often notable, especially the newer agents like amlodipine.
Global IHD Drugs Market Trends:
In recent years, the increasing prevalence of heart diseases, along with the growing population of older adults who are more prone to heart ailments, has led to the rising demand for IHD drugs. Moreover, IHD drugs are incorporated in various cardiological treatment procedures, such as angioplasty, atherectomy and balloon angioplasty, for preventing relapse and ensuring healthy recovery, which has led to a consistent requirement for these drugs. Besides this, the high alcohol consumption, excessive smoking, reduced blood pressure control and lower physical activity are the factors that have increased the mortality rate from cardiovascular disease, which in turn is leading to a rise in the demand for IHD drugs across the globe. Moreover, several pharmaceutical companies are investing in the development of more advanced IHD drugs. Looking forward, the market is projected to expand at a CAGR of 2.6% during 2020-2025.
