Furthermore, the presence of strong drug pipelines such as Tecarfarin, TB-402 and others and their expected commercialization is projected to boost the market growth over the coming years. Moreover, unavailability of alternatives for antithrombotic drugs coupled with the new product developments and launches are expected to bolster the market growth. However, stringent regulatory policies and high cost of novel drugs are expected to hamper the market growth.
