The global pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) drugs market grew at a CAGR of around 6% during 2014-2019. Pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) refers to a life-threatening medical condition characterized by high blood pressure in the arteries that connect the heart to the lungs. It causes the artery walls to tighten and narrow down, thereby exerting additional pressure on the heart to pump blood and weakening the muscles. In adverse cases, it can also compromise the heart's capacity to pump blood, thus eventually causing heart failure. PAH is characterized by shortness of breath, fatigue and swelling in ankles and legs. It is diagnosed through various tests, such as an echocardiogram, computer tomography (CT) scans, chest X-rays and ventilation-perfusion scans. It is usually treated using various drugs, such as endothelin receptor antagonists (ERAs), vasodilators, calcium channel blockers (CCBs), anticoagulants, diuretics and cardiac glycosides. These drugs can be inhaled, injected or orally administered.
The increasing prevalence of cardiovascular and pulmonary disorders is one of the key factors driving the growth of the market. Furthermore, the rising geriatric population that is more susceptible to such medical ailments is providing a boost to the market growth. In line with this, changes in lifestyles, such as excessive alcohol consumption, a lack of physical activity, and unhealthy dietary patterns, have enhanced the risks of hypertension and high blood pressure. This, along with the development of novel orphan drugs and technologically advanced devices for the treatment of PAH, is favoring the market growth. Other factors, including increasing awareness among the masses regarding the available treatment alternatives for PAH, and improving healthcare infrastructure across the globe, are expected to drive the market further. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the global pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) drugs market to continue its moderate growth during the next five years.
