The global anticoagulant market was valued at US$ 30,773.2 Mn in 2021 and is forecast to reach a value of US$ 57,337.5 Mn by 2028 at a CAGR of 9.4% between 2022 and 2028. The anticoagulant market is experiencing strong growth due to the growing prevalence of chronic disease and rise in demand for anticoagulants across the world. Moreover, rise in focus on the development of novel anticoagulants and growing geriatric population across the globe are expected to boost the growth of the market. However, factors such as side effects associated with anticoagulants and stringent government regulations are expected to hamper growth of the global anticoagulant market.
Global Anticoagulant Market: Regional Insights
Based on geography, the global anticoagulant market is segmented into North America, Latin America, Europe, Asia Pacific, and Middle East & Africa.
Among regions, North America is expected to gain highest share in the market over the forecast period due to the increase in incidence of chronic diseases (especially cardiovascular diseases) and rise in adoption of novel oral anticoagulants (NOACs) in the region. For instance, according to the American Heart Association (AHA), October 2021 report, over 2,300 people in the United States die due to cardiovascular diseases each day, an average of one death every 38 seconds. Thus, with the increase in prevalence of cardiovascular diseases (CVDs), demand for anticoagulants is also increasing, thereby driving the growth of the market.
Asia Pacific is also expected to witness significant growth in the global anticoagulant market due to the increase in prevalence of cardiovascular diseases and increase in demand for anticoagulants in the region. For instance, anticoagulants play an important role in the treatment of cardiovascular diseases (CVDs). India has one of the highest burdens of cardiovascular disease (CVD) worldwide. As per the National Center for Biotechnology Information, the annual number of deaths from CVD in India is expected to increase from 2.26 million (1990) to 4.77 million (2020). This in turn has increased the demand for anticoagulants in this region.

Global Anticoagulant Market Drivers:
Growing prevalence of chronic diseases across the globe is expected to boost the growth of global anticoagulant market during the forecast period. For instance, direct oral anticoagulants (DOACs) are used to prevent and treat cardiovascular disease. DOACs are anticoagulation pharmacotherapy used for the prevention of thrombosis in several cardiovascular contexts. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), cardiovascular diseases (CVDs) are the leading cause of death across the world, taking an estimated 17.9 million lives each year. This in turn is expected to increase the demand for anticoagulants around the world.
Increase in demand for anticoagulants around the world is expected to propel growth of the global anticoagulant market during the forecast period. For instance, in December 2020, Natco Pharma announced the launch of an anti-blood clot tablet, named Rivaroxaban, to treat and prevent blood clots. Rivaroxaban is currently sold by Bayer under brand name of Xarelto in the Indian market. Natco has launched RPIGAT in four strengths, 20 mg, 15 mg, 10 mg, and 2.5 mg. The novel oral anti-coagulant, Rivaroxaban, is in line with Natco’s mission of affordable medicines accessible to all, a release from Natco Pharma said.
Global Anticoagulant Market Opportunities:
Rise in focus on the development of novel anticoagulants is expected to provide significant growth opportunities for players in the global anticoagulant market. For instance, with the rise in burden of chronic diseases worldwide, the demand for safe and effective anticoagulants is also increasing with the rapid pace. In March 2021, The U.S. National Institutes of Health (NIH) initiated the last of three Phase III clinical trials of blood thinners (anticoagulant) to prevent life-threatening blood clots in adults with COVID-19 (coronavirus disease).
Growing geriatric population across the globe is expected to offer lucrative growth opportunities for players in the global anticoagulant market. For instance, the demand for improvised and non-invasive treatments is rising among geriatric population, which in turn has increased the demand for anticoagulants worldwide. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), by 2030, 1 in 6 people in the world will be aged 60 years or over, and by 2050, the world’s population of people aged 60 years and older will double (2.1 billion).

|Restraints & Challenges:||
Global Anticoagulant Market Trends:
There is an increase in demand for direct oral anticoagulants across the world. The development and introduction of direct oral anticoagulants (DOACs) represent a huge advancement in the field of anticoagulation. Moreover, the adoption of novel oral anticoagulants (NOACs) is increasing or has increased in developing countries, and is anticipated to show a similar trend over the forecast period owing to the high preference of NOACs over the warfarin.
Moreover, the use of anticoagulants is increasing, owing to the increasing usage of plasma in the pharmaceutical industry. Apart from this, they are being used in a variety of clinical applications. These wide-ranging applications range from anti-tumor and anti-inflammatory to the prevention of infectious disease and the use as nano-carriers for drug delivery. This trend is also expected to continue over the forecast period, driving the market growth.
Global Anticoagulant Market Restraints:
Side effects associated with some anticoagulant are expected to hamper the growth of the global anticoagulant market. For instance, anticoagulant medications can cause side effects that may lead to more serious complications. The most common side effect associated with any anticoagulant is bleeding. Depending on the medicine used, other potential risks exist. They can also cause nausea, upset stomach, and diarrhea, among others.
Stringent government regulations are expected to hinder growth of the anticoagulant market. The usage of oral anticoagulants is being monitored for adverse drug events. For instance, the United States Food Drug Administration (FDA) uses standard surveillance definitions for anticoagulant-related bleeding events in post-marketing and/or epidemiologic analyses, to access the accuracy of diagnostic and procedural coding to capture anticoagulant-related bleeding events.
