Fibric Acid and Omega-3 Fatty Acid Derivatives Segment Leads Overall Market
Amongst the various type of drug classes, the fibric acid and omega-3 fatty acid derivatives segment will witness the least decline at a -1.6% CAGR between 2015 and 2023. A growing number of prescriptions for drugs such as Epanova, Vascespa, and Lovaza will be the primary reason why this segment will be able to mitigate its loss. The government approvals for fibric acid and omega-3 fatty acid derivatives class of drugs have also bolstered the demand for dyslipidemia drugs in recent years. The report suggests that Fenofibrate drugs are the popularly prescribed fibric acid and omega-3 fatty acid derived drugs to patients with dyslipidemia.
However, the future of this segment is on unsteady ground as these major drugs are expected to lose their patents. For instance, fenofibrate-containing drugs such as Trilipix, Antara, Tricor, and others will gradually lose importance to generic drugs.
Some of the leading players identified in this market are AstraZeneca plc., Merck & Co., Inc., Pfizer, Inc., Daiichi Sankyo Company, Limited, and Abbott Laboratories. The companies will continue to hold a strong presence due to their brand value and extensive goodwill in the market. Analysts state that new entrants must establish their foothold in the emerging market to profit from the large patient pool in developing countries of China and India and lower manufacturing costs.
