Blood clots form when blood thickens and forms a semi-solid mass in any part of the body. This causes serious problems, such as stroke, heart attack, pulmonary embolism, transient ischemic attacks, and deep vein thrombosis (DVT). As a result, doctors around the world are prescribing anticoagulant drugs to people who are at a high risk of clot formation. These drugs help in thinning blood, preventing or reducing blood clotting, and prolonging the clotting time. They are usually available in capsule or tablet form, including warfarin, rivaroxaban, dabigatran and apixaban.
Anticoagulants Market Trends:
Recent research indicates that hypercoagulability in individuals affected by the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic can be one of the leading causes of mortality worldwide. As a result, its surging cases are positively influencing the demand for anticoagulant drugs to treat the thrombotic condition among critically ill or hospitalized patients. Moreover, certain risk factors, such as extended sitting, smoking, trauma, blood disorders, and autoimmune diseases, can cause blood clotting in different parts of the body. This, in confluence with the increasing prevalence of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), hepatitis C, Lyme disease, obesity, cancer, and chronic inflammation, represents another significant factor strengthening the growth of the market. Apart from this, the growing aging population across the globe is resulting in the escalating demand for surgical services. Surgeries often require prolonged bed rest, which, in turn, increases the risk of blood clotting and the overall sales of anticoagulant drugs. Furthermore, the improving diagnosis rates and the escalating demand for target therapeutics are fueling the market growth. The emergence of online pharmacies is also driving the demand for anticoagulant drugs around the world.
