According to Infoholic Research, increasing aging population, increasing prevalence of cardiovascular diseases, high incidence of obesity, and an unhealthy lifestyle are driving the demand for cardiovascular drugs. Complex drug development process and adverse effects of cardiovascular drugs are hampering the growth of the market.

There is a constant increase in the incidence of cardiovascular diseases. According to WHO, in 2015, approximately 17.7 million people died due to various cardiovascular diseases. Increase in expenditure for R&D of novel cardiovascular drugs and increased government initiatives to raise the alertness of different types of cardiovascular conditions are expected to drive the market growth. Additionally, the variation in lifestyle has increased the prevalence of the obesity, which has further led to an increase in the incidence of cardiovascular disorders globally. Nevertheless, the rigorous regulatory approval process for drugs, high treatment cost, and side effects related to cardiovascular drugs are hindering the progress of the market.
