The global generics market cardiovascular drugs is expected to grow rapidly due to the growing dyslipdemia, thrombosis and hypertension populations in the developed countries, as well as patent expiries of major blockbusters such as Lipitor (atorvastatin), Plavix (clopidigrel) and Diovan (valsartan). The patent expiries of these blockbuster drugs will trigger generic competition in the cardiovascular therapeutics market, making it more competitive.
In 2010, the generics market for cardiovascular drugs was estimated at $20.5 billion, indicating a year on year decline of 0.9% from 2004-2010. Patent expiries of the leading antiplatelets/antithrombotics such as Plavix (clopidigrel) and Lovenox (enoxaparin) and lipid lowering blockbuster Lipitor in 2010-2012, resulting in uptake of generics, is expected to cause the market to increase significantly from 2010 to 2018.
