CHF therapeutics market to reach a value of $4,918.4 million

Press Release   •   Aug 17, 2012 11:07 BST

The global chronic heart failure (CHF) therapeutics market has been forecast to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 3.1% over the next eight years, to reach a market value of $4,918.4 million by 2019.

This is a slightly smaller CAGR than the one recorded between 2006 and 2011, when the market grew at a CAGR of 4% from $3,171.3 million in 2006 to $3,849.9 million in 2011.

Growth within the CHF therapeutics market is expected to grow due to greater health awareness among the general public, increased life expectancy and, consequently, an aging global population, which will be naturally more susceptible to acute heart failure (AHF).

Currently, the only treatment choices available to the CHF therapeutics market are generic drugs, which do not treat the underlying cause of the disease. Drugs such as beta-blockers and diuretics can manage the symptoms of CHF by improving cardiac function, but none can provide disease-modifying mechanisms.

As a result, demand is growing for new treatment options that can present improved safety and efficacy and unique new molecules that can restore or regenerate impaired cardiac muscle cells.

Various pipeline molecules are expected to enter the market within the next few years to provide improved options for CHF patients. Our analysis shows that there are 41 molecules under development in the CHF therapeutics pipeline, of which 78% are First-in-Class (FIC) and 25% are in Phase III.
