Adrenergic Drug Market: Growth Drivers and Challenges

Growth Drivers

  • Surge in Prevalence of Cardiovascular Disease- According to the World Health Organization, on a worldwide scale cardiovascular diseases (CVDs) account for 17.9 million deaths every year, putting them as the leading cause of death. As a result, the demand for the adrenergic drug market is estimated to rise. An essential category of adrenergic drug referred to as beta-adrenergic blockers (β-blockers) is utilized for treating a variety of heart conditions, such as hypertension, angina pectoris, arrhythmias, thicker heart muscle (hypertrophic cardiomyopathy), and heart failure, which is caused by a reduced heart's ability to pump blood to the heart muscle and an irregular heartbeat. It has been confirmed that β-blockers lower the chance of dying from a heart attack or having another one in those who have already had one.
  • Rising Geriatric Population- The organs in your body age as well as people do. Numerous medical problems arise in old age as a result of this. About 76% of senior citizens have two or more chronic diseases, and nearly 91% have at least one. The cardiovascular system and blood vessels can alter with age, raising the risk of heart disease. Additionally, mental health deteriorates with age, precisely as physical health does. This indicates that at least one mental health disorder affects over 14% of those over the age of 60. Alzheimer's disease, sadness, and anxiety are prevalent among the elderly population. Therefore, the adrenergic drug market revenue is set to rise.
  • Growing Research & Development for the Launch of New Products- The pharmaceutical business all around the world creates various adrenergic medications each year that offer significant medicinal advantages. The risk for novel diseases emerging was recently brought to light by the COVID-19 pandemic. Both the treatment of emerging disease symptoms and immunization against the spread of emerging diseases necessitate the development of novel medications. Drugs that address the causes or symptoms of illnesses that have long been known about however were previously incurable can be developed when additional information is researched about the pathophysiology and metabolism of diseases. As a result, there has been surge in research & development activities for the launch of new medications.


  • Side Effects of Adrenergic Drug - Variations in blood pressure and heart rate are among the most frequent side effects. Common side effects of selective binding to beta-1 receptors include hypertension, palpitations, and tachycardia. Anxiety and tachyarrhythmias can also be prevalent. Excessive dosages might cause harmful arrhythmias. Additionally, furthermore, caution has been advised while giving beta-2 agonists since patients ought to be watched for effects on the central nervous system, blood pressure, heart rate, and paradoxical bronchospasm. Additionally, angioedema, atrioventricular (AV) block, and hypersensitivity can happen when alpha-2 agonists are prescribed. Among the possible side effects of beta-1 agonists include tremors, migraines, and vomiting. Hence, the adrenergic drug market revenue is predicted to be restricted over the forecast period.
  • Lack of Approval for Adrenergic Drug by FDA
  • High Price of Adrenergic Drug

Adrenergic Drug Segmentation

Drug Class (Vasopressors, Bronchodilators, Catecholamine)

Adrenergic drug market from the bronchodilators segment is predicted to hold 50% of the revenue share during the forecast period. As a class of drug, bronchodilators promote breathing by expanding the bronchi and relaxing the muscles in the lungs. They're frequently employed to treat long-term illnesses including asthma, a common lung ailment brought on by inflammation of the airways, where the airways may become narrowed and inflammatory. Hence, with the growing prevalence of asthma the segment is set to experience the highest growth. Over 300 million people globally are affected by asthma, which has a significant morbidity and mortality rate. Additionally, individuals with asthma are more inclined to suffer from atopic dermatitis (eczema) or allergic rhinitis (hay fever). Hence, the demand for bronchodilators is growing.

Distribution Channel (Retail Pharmacy, Hospital Pharmacy, E-Commerce)

The hospital segment is projected to account for 60% share of the global adrenergic drug market during the forecast period. Adrenergic drug is usually prescribed by doctors in the hospital and additionally, in some cases the patients are kept under observation after the consumption of this drug. Hence, most people prefer hospitals for the distribution for this drug. Furthermore, most of the medications are made available only in the hospital pharmacy. Hence, consumers might be entangled to purchase the same from there. Also, the price of various medications is hospitals especially the government is relatively low.

Adrenergic Drug Industry - Regional Synopsis

North American Market Forecast

The North America adrenergic drug market is poised to rise by generating the highest share of about 35% over the forecast period. The major factor to encourage this growth is the rising prevalence of chronic disease. Nearly half of all Americans, or about 132 million people, are believed to suffer from a minimum of one chronic ailment, such as arthritis, heart disease, or hypertension. That number is projected to rise to over 169 million by 2030, which is about 14 million more than it was even ten years ago. Moreover, this region is considered to be the most active for various launches of medication since they have the highest spending on pharmaceuticals. Also, there has been an upsurge in patient population in this region and hence this region might also be held responsible for the spending on launch medication. Hence, the demand for market in this region is expanding.

APAC Market Analysis

The adrenergic drug market in Asia Pacific is also expected to experience the significant growth over the forecast period. This growth is set to be influenced by the growth in the prevalence of COPD. Despite being a condition that can potentially be prevented and treated, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is associated with high morbidity and mortality, resulting in a significant social and economic burden. The Epidemiology and Impact of COPD (EPIC) Asia population-based survey results indicate a high incidence of COPD in the participating Asia-Pacific territories and a significant socioeconomic burden of the disease in this region. As a result, the importance for adrenergic drug is rising in order to cure and this disease. Additionally, there has been surge in awareness regarding cardiovascular disease in Asia Pacific and the medication available for this. Hence, this is also projected to encourage the adrenergic drug market growth in this region.
