Antihypertensive Drugs Market Overview

The Antihypertensive Drugs Market size can touch USD 30,212 million  at a CAGR 4.20% during the forecast period 2022-2030, according to the extensive research conducted by Market Research Future (MRFR). MRFR identifies the rising number of awareness campaigns by governmental and non-profit organizations across the world as one of the reasons for market growth.

COVID-19 Analysis

Antihypertensive drugs market share has declined owing to the lockdown imposed following the COVID-19 outbreak. The novel coronavirus pandemic has reduced the number of cardiac surgeries in view of the re-scheduling, no-show by patients, cancellations and lower consultations in the wake of restrictions by health authorities and government. In view of the steadily growing number of SARS-CoV-2 cases, only emergency services are currently being allowed, while the decrease in heart disease hospital admissions has slowed down the market growth.

However, MRFR experts believe that the market could be resilient over the forthcoming period. This can be the case since latest studies show that COVID-19 patients are dealing with sevaerl cardiovascular complications, and as a result, health authorities are encouraging the use of CVD drugs and antihypertensive drugs. This could ensure sustainable market growth in the years to follow. Surging popularity of e-commerce and online drug stores will also result in antihypertensive drugs market expansion during the review period, despite the escalating novel coronavirus cases.

Antihypertensive Drugs Market Dynamics


Escalating Hypertension Cases Worldwide to Push Market Growth

One of the foremost growth rendering factors in the antihypertensive drugs market is the alarming rise in incidences of hypertension across countries. The growing cases are also raising the awareness level among the mass about the complications related to hypertension, which also encourages market growth. The consistently expanding geriatric pool across the globe along with the high prevalence of sedentary lifestyle fosters major growth as well. The mounting need for early diagnosis as well as treatment of hypertension is bolstering the demand for antihypertensive drugs in the market. Some of the modern anti-hypertensive drugs in the market that are used for treatment include ACE inhibitors, vasodilators and diuretics. However, these antihypertensive drugs in pregnancy are advised to be avoided so as not to give way to any complications.


Rising Preference for Combination Therapy to Offer Opportunities

Of late, combination therapies have witnessed significant applications compared to the monotherapy form of treatment. Monotherapy involves the use of a single drug, whereas combination therapy facilitates action on multiple hypertensive mechanisms. The latter involves combining two drugs that have varying mechanisms of action, which leads to an effect that is much higher than monotherapy.

Combination therapy helps bring down cerebrovascular events by 54% and coronary issues by 40%. Therefore, combination therapy offers better protection to the organ with lower dose compared to monotherapy and its wide acceptance across the world is proving to be a lucrative opportunity for leading firms in the global industry.


Lower Awareness Levels in Developing Countries to be a Key Restraint

Lower awareness levels with regard to antihypertensive drugs amongst the mass in developing countries can be a huge restraint in the worldwide market. A vast population in developing countries tends to neglect health-checkups and has low knowledge about hypertension conditions and symptoms, which is making it hard for players to gain any profits in these regions.


Patients with hypertension generally do not adhere to the required medication schedule and tend to stop medications in only 1 to 2 weeks, which gives rise to the symptoms again. This passive attitude of patients is posing a significant challenge to the firms in the anti-hypertensive drugs industry. For instance, in 2016, BMC Research conducted a research that stated that only 17% of 112 hypertensive individuals with stroke adhered to antihypertensive drugs and medications.

Cumulative Growth Analysis

Introduction of New Treatment Options to Bolster Market’s Growth Rate

The antihypertensive drugs market growth is expected to be at a rate of 2.67% over the analysis period (between 2015 and 2023), on account of the rising introduction of new antihypertensive therapy options.

Antihypertensive Drugs Market Segment Overview

Cost Effectiveness to Bolster Demand for Beta Blockers

MRFR’s review of anti-hypertensive drugs market outlines a few key therapeutic classes, namely beta-adrenergic blockers, calcium channel blockers, angiotensin II receptor blockers (ARBs), angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors, renin inhibitors, diuretics, vasodilators, and others. Latest studies have concluded that antihypertensive drugs beta blockers and diuretics are far more cost-effective compared to other therapeutic classes and therefore, observe considerable demand in the antihypertensive drugs market.

Secondary Hypertension-Based Drugs to observe Strong demand

Depending on the type of anti-hypertensive drugs in the antihypertensive drugs market are primary as well as secondary. Secondary hypertension segment is in the lead owing to early diagnosis, faster detection, surging cases of thyroid problems, chronic alcohol use, kidney problems, heart ailments, adrenal gland tumors and more. However, the antihypertensive drugs classification by MRFR also reveals that the segmental growth can be slowed down by patent expiries including United Therapeutic's Remodulin (2014) and Actelion's Tracleer (2015).

E-Commerce Websites and Online Drug Stores Gain Massive Popularity

Distribution channels highlighted in the MRFR study are retail pharmacy, hospital pharmacy, e-commerce websites and online drug stores, and others. E-commerce websites and online drug stores segment can expect to surge forward at the fastest rate over the evaluation period, on account of the high internet usage and popularity of smartphones and tablets.

Antihypertensive Drugs Market Regional Analysis

America to Reach the Leading Position in the Coming Years

AHA or American heart association claims that close to 74.9% of the total hypertension patients in North America are being treated while only about 52.2% of them have it under control. AHA also projects that by the year 2030; roughly 41.4% of individuals in the US/United States will suffer from hypertension. These scaling numbers indicate the bright growth prospects of the American market for antihypertensive drugs. Also, the mounting need for accurate and prompt diagnosis as well as treatment of hypertension, detecting people that are predisposed to the disorder and the presence of modern healthcare infrastructure also work in favor of the American anti-hypertension industry. The orthostatic hypotension drugs market has been growing exponentially in the region, with a soaring number of patients suffering from low blood pressure.

APAC Races Ahead at the Fastest Rate as China and India Take the Lead

MRFR anticipates the APAC antihypertensive drugs market to exhibit the fastest growth during the conjectured period, thanks to the soaring awareness level about antihypertensive drugs and other treatment options. The stunning growth of the life science industry in India, Malaysia and China has also been an important growth booster in the APAC market. The anti-hypertensive drugs rhabdomyolysis are gaining traction in the region, in view of the surge in alcohol abuse, rising intake of toxic substances and overexertion. The rising availability of various categories of anti-hypertensive drugs in the region and growing access to these also promote market expansion. The growth of the antihypertensive drugs market in India can be directly linked to the rising consumption of unhealthy or junk food, lack of balanced and healthy diet, improper sleep owing to irregular working hours that result in hypertension. These factors have amplified the rate of diseases like stroke, heart failure, chronic kidney disease, peripheral vascular disease and more.

Antihypertensive Drugs Market Competitive Landscape

Significant Investments by Players to Intensify Competition

Anti-hypertensive drugs market is quite stable, since it is rife with several affluent firms. The expected market growth rate is sluggish owing to the rising use of generic drugs. Substantial spending by leading manufacturers in developing new drugs and medicines is a major trend that can continue throughout the review period. Prominent growth strategies that are primarily employed by the top vendors in the market include agreement, product launch, acquisition, expansion and partnership.
