Due to Generic Erosion, the Hypertension Drug Market Will Decline by $3 Billion from 2009 to 2019

BURLINGTON, Mass., Sept. 28 /PRNewswire/ -- Decision Resources, one of the world's leading research and advisory firms for pharmaceutical and healthcare issues finds that, owing to increasing generic availability of antihypertensive agents, the hypertension drug market will decline from $26 billion in 2009 to $23 billion in 2019 in the United States, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, United Kingdom and Japan.

The Pharmacor 2010 findings from the topic entitled Hypertension reveal that the market-leading drug, Novartis's Diovan/Tareg, will suffer the greatest decline as its sales will decrease more than $1 billion in 2013, following the entry of generic versions of the drug. By 2019, the drug classes typically used as first-, second-, and third-line therapy will all be subject to generic competition — these drug classes are the angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitors (ACEIs), angiotensin II receptor antagonists (AIIRA), calcium channel blockers (CCBs) and diuretics.

"Emerging agents will find it difficult to penetrate the highly genericized hypertension market because of competition from inexpensive and efficacious generic antihypertensive drugs," said Decision Resources Analyst Taskin Ahmed. "Through 2019, we do not forecast blockbuster sales for any of the emerging antihypertensive agents."

The Pharmacor 2010 findings also reveal that, although the overall market will decline, sales of therapies offering greater convenience, such as fixed-dose combinations, will increase over the next several years. The CCB/ renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system (RAAS) inhibitor fixed-dose combinations and CCB/RAAS inhibitor/diuretic fixed-dose combinations will capitalize on this opportunity, generating approximately $6 billion in total sales in 2019.
