Over the past few decades, the diagnostic techniques employed for the diagnosis of atherosclerosis have undergone significant improvements in terms of technology which enable high-definition picture quality and information about the morphology of the vessel wall, presence of plaque, its size, and its composition. The accurate measurement and visualization of the vessel wall are vital for positive remodeling. Also, by determining the high-risk plaques and demonstrating their components, vessel wall imaging is used to predict cardiovascular risk and evaluate the plaque burden. Furthermore, the vessel wall MRI has the advantage of being less operator-dependent when compared with other diagnostic methods. Therefore, the vessel wall MRI has been regarded as an important biomarker, which in turn is expected to drive market growth during the forecast period.
As per Technavio, the identification of new drug targets for atherosclerosis will have a positive impact on the market and contribute to its growth significantly over the forecast period. This global atherosclerosis therapeutics market 2019-2023 research report also analyzes other important trends and market drivers that will affect market growth over 2019-2023.
Global Atherosclerosis Therapeutics Market: Identification of New Drug Targets for Atherosclerosis
At present, atherosclerosis research is focused on evaluating new drug targets that have genetic and mechanistic links to atherosclerosis. These novel targets include regulators of triglyceride-rich particle metabolism, proteins involved in glycoprotein recognition and clearance, inflammatory pathways that affect efferocytosis, and the gut microbiome. Efforts in this area have revealed some new proatherosclerotic pathways that are involved in lipid metabolism and can significantly reduce the risk of atherosclerosis.
Currently, only two inhibitors are available for use, which are evolocumab and alirocumab. Studies reveal that these inhibitors do not affect glucose metabolism and do not increase the incidence of type 2 diabetes. These inhibitors also show favorable therapeutic efficacy in reducing atherogenesis. However, more clinical trials are required to establish their use among patients with atherosclerosis. Thus, growing R&D efforts in this area are expected to have a positive impact on the market.
“Apart from the identification of new drug targets for atherosclerosis, the identification of new pathogenic targets and the strong incidence of coronary heart disease (CHD) are some other major factors that will boost market growth during the forecast period,” says a senior analyst at Technavio.
Global Atherosclerosis Therapeutics Market: Segmentation Analysis
This market research report segments the global atherosclerosis therapeutics market by product (small molecules and biologics) and geographical regions (North America, Europe, Asia, and ROW).
The North American region led the market in 2018, followed by Europe, Asia, and ROW, respectively. During the forecast period, the North American region is expected to maintain its dominance over the global market and register the highest incremental growth due to the presence of a large patient pool with atherosclerosis in the region.
