Stroke Treatment Market was valued at ~US$ 8 Bn in 2030

Oral Anticoagulants Help Minimize Risks of Internal Bleeding in Stroke Patients

Healthcare providers are recommending the consumption of non-vitamin K oral anticoagulants over commercially available medications such as Warfarin to reduce the incidence of atrial fibrillation in the stroke treatment market space. These efficacious oral anticoagulants are increasingly catching the attention of consumers and healthcare providers, as they effectively minimize the formation of clots in the blood. This is validated, as the revenue of anticoagulants amongst all drugs in the stroke treatment market is projected to hold the second-highest position, with a value of ~US$ 4.2 billion by 2027.

Oral anticoagulants are serving the convenience of stroke patients, as they can regularize any potential symptoms in home care settings. Thus, new oral anticoagulants are creating incremental opportunities for hospital, retail, and online pharmacies, as users can request for bulk orders at any given time. Healthcare companies in the stroke treatment market are developing improved formulations that make anticoagulants safer and help in reducing the risk of internal bleeding.

Lucrative Opportunities in U.S. Catalyze Market Growth

Healthcare companies in the stroke treatment market should increase their focus on drug development in the U.S. Favorable guidelines by health commissions and the well-established healthcare infrastructure of the U.S. are gaining the worldwide attention of stakeholders in the stroke treatment market.

Overall, North America is anticipated to maintain its lead in terms of market share and revenue during the forecast period, with a projected value of ~US$ 6.9 billion by 2027, in the stroke treatment market. Developments in the North American healthcare landscape are creating a ripple effect in the stroke treatment landscape of the U.S.

The introduction of new guidelines by health commissions in the U.S. involves speeding up the procedure of providing thrombolytic therapy to patients suffering from acute ischemic stroke. These guidelines are increasing the convenience of patients, and healthcare providers are gaining credibility in the global stroke treatment market scenario. Healthcare providers in the U.S are aiming to increase speed targets every year. Also, patients are being provided intravenous tissue plasminogen activator (tPA) drugs within minutes of their hospital arrival.

tPA Drugs Reduce Ischemia Injuries and Improve Neuroplasticity

Tissue plasminogen activator (tPA) drugs accounted for the highest revenue in 2018, with a global value of ~US$ 3.4 billion in the stroke treatment market. Healthcare companies gain monopoly through the sales of tPA drugs, as these are the only therapeutic agents meant to treat patients with acute ischemic stroke that have been approved by health commissions across nations. However, delayed administration of tPA drugs in acute ischemic stroke patients can lead to health complications such as intracranial hemorrhage (ICH), hemorrhagic transformation (HT), and mortality. To overcome this challenge, companies are educating healthcare professionals regarding the administration of tPA drugs within 4.5 hours of a stroke onset. Also, manufacturers are developing new drug agents with improved formulations that help reduce the incidence of ischemia injuries in case of delayed tPA administration.

As such, healthcare companies in the stroke treatment market are increasing the availability of recombinant tissue plasminogen activators (rt-PA) to ease the health complications of acute ischemic stroke patients with their thrombolytic action. Positive clinical trials have compelled healthcare providers to prescribe rt-PA drugs in order to improve neuroplasticity in stroke patients.

Analysts’ Viewpoint

Manufacturers in the stroke treatment market are introducing reversal drug agents that minimize the incidence of life-threatening or uncontrolled bleeding in patients. Healthcare providers recommend the consumption of reversal agents in case oral anticoagulants are insufficient to treat stroke patients. Healthcare providers should increase their focus on non-pharmacological options such as percutaneous left atrial appendage occlusion for patients suffering from atrial fibrillation.

Though the market is expected to grow at a healthy CAGR of ~7%, manufacturers are challenged by the limitation of tPA drugs during delayed administration in patients. Hence, they should develop improved formulations of tPA that are efficacious, even after late administration of the drugs.

To contribute towards improving the quality of life in patients, companies should educate healthcare professionals to encourage patients for keeping a tab on weight management, as obesity leads to health complications such as sleep apnea, hypertension, hyperlipidemia, glucose intolerance, and the like.

Global Stroke Treatment Market: Regional Outlook

In terms of region, the global stroke treatment market has been segmented into North America, Europe, Latin America, Asia Pacific, and Middle East & Africa. North America is projected to account for a leading share of the global market during the forecast period, owing to increase in the number of patients suffering from stroke.

For instance, according to the American Stroke Foundation, around 795,000 people experience a new or recurrent stroke each year in the U.S., which is anticipated to boost the stroke treatment market.

Favorable funding by governments and charitable trusts for stroke research, prevention, and treatment in the country is likely to drive the market in North America.

The stroke treatment market in Asia Pacific is projected to grow at a rapid pace in the next few years. India and China are anticipated to be lucrative markets for stroke treatment during the forecast period, owing to the high prevalence of cerebrovascular diseases, unhealthy lifestyle choices such as smoking, poor diets, and high incidence of diabetes and hypertension, which fuel the risk of developing a stroke.

Strategic Collaborations and Innovative Product Launches to Strengthen Market Position

In August 2017, Sanofi received FDA approval for PLAVIX (clopidogrel bisulfate), an antiplatelet medication used to reduce the risk of heart disease and stroke.

In December 2017, Bristol-Myers Squibb Company and Pfizer Alliance, along with the National Stroke Association and iHeartMedia, launched ‘Tune in to AFib, Take Note of Stroke Risk’. This initiative aims to educate and create awareness among people living with atrial fibrillation (AFib) about the increased risk of stroke.

In April 2016, Bristol-Myers Squibb Company entered into a collaboration with Janssen Pharmaceuticals, Inc. to develop and commercialize BMS-986177, a Factor XIa (FXIa) inhibitor. It is an anticoagulant drug indicated for the prevention and treatment of thrombotic events.
