These problems are caused due to high blood pressure in the heart’s arteries and muscles, which causes narrowing of arteries and thickening and enlargement of heart. The global cardiovascular drug market is primarily driven by increase in prevalence of heart diseases coupled with rising geriatric population and lifestyle related diseases.
