Demand for Hospital Pharmaceuticals Soars as Patents Cliff
The growing incidents of accidents, traumas, and other emergencies have spiked the demand for specialty drugs in hospitals across the globe. Additionally, growing prevalence of pneumonia, malaria, AIDS, and tuberculosis have also triggered a significant uptake of hospital pharmaceuticals in recent years. The growing number of cancer cases have also accelerated the consumption of hospital pharmaceuticals. The oncology segment includes drugs such as alkylating agents, anti-metabolites, hormonal agents, and immunomodulating agents. These pharmaceuticals are used for treating lung, breast, colorectal, and prostate cancer. A sudden jump in the number patients suffering from cardiovascular diseases has also augmented the demand for related hospital pharmaceuticals. All in all, growing cases of chronic conditions are responsible to the rising consumption of these pharmaceuticals
The looming patent expiry for blockbuster drugs such as Lyrica (pregabalin), Nucynta (Tapentadol), Avastin (bevacizumab), and Alimta (Pemetrexed) has created a promising ground for the entry of generic drugs. This emerging trend is expected to improve the affordability of several hospital pharmaceuticals for the low-income groups and thus result in increased spending. The high adoption rate of telemedicine technology across the healthcare sector to reach out of patients in remote locations has also proved to be a critical growth factor for the global hospital pharmaceutical market.

Preference for Home Care Reduces Chances for Sale of Hospital Pharmaceuticals
Though a perspective suggests that patent expirations could benefit the overall market, it is also logical to conclude that patent cliff could result in reduced sales and thus lesser revenues for certain drugs. Significant patent expirations are likely to hamper the global market during the forecast period. Furthermore, growing preference for home care has reduced hospital visits to a large degree, which has made a noticeable negative impact on the demand for hospital pharmaceutical in recent years.
