Increasing number of government initiatives for creating awareness regarding cardiovascular and blood pressure disorders is expected to drive growth of the Telmisartan market
The Texas Council on cardiovascular disease and stroke works with key players to implement plan for reducing rate of cardiovascular disease and stroke burden in Texas.

For instance, in August 2017, Zydus Cadila received approval from the US FDA to market telmisartan and hydrochlorothiazide tablets, in the strengths of 40mg/ 12.5 mg, 80 mg/12.5 mg and 80mg/25 mg.
However, drug shortages are likely to inhibit the growth of the Telmisartan market. For instance in June 2018, US FDA reported shortage of Boehringer Ingelheim Pharmaceuticals, Inc.’s, telmisartan and amlodipine (Twynsta) tablets 80mg/10mg, 30 count blister, due to discontinuation of its business. Moreover, Drug Shortages Canada also reported shortage of Teva- Telmisartan 80mg tablet in Canada, due to lack of complying with good manufacturing practices.
