Excerpts from ‘By Drug Class Segmentation’

Based on drug class, the global cholesterol lowering drugs market has been divided into:

  • Statins
  • PCSK9 inhibitors
  • Bile Acid Sequestrants
  • Cholesterol Absorption Inhibitors
  • Others

The section of medications used to decrease cholesterol that is dominated by statins. A group of drugs known as statins are the most frequently prescribed treatment for lowering LDL cholesterol. In terms of lowering LDL-C levels and preventing CV events, these drugs are among the most regularly prescribed in the world. They are also thought to be the finest lipid-reducing choices available right now. They are the most effective drugs for preventing coronary heart disease, heart attacks, strokes, and mortality. PCSK9 inhibitors are effective at lowering cholesterol, just like statins. These medications offer an option for those who are unable to take statins. People who possess the gene proprotein convertase subtilisin/kexin type 9 do so (PCSK9). It determines the body’s total number of low-density lipoprotein (LDL) receptors. Thus, these receptors regulate the amount of LDL cholesterol that enters our bloodstream. Changes to this gene can reduce the amount of LDL receptors. Medication for PCSK9 works by preventing the gene encoded PCSK9 enzyme from doing its job.

Excerpts from ‘By Indication Segmentation’

Based on indication, the global cholesterol lowering drugs market has been subdivided into:

  • Hypercholesterolemia
  • Hyperlipidemia
  • Cardiovascular Disease
  • Others

The main risk associated with having too much cholesterol is heart disease, which can cause death from a heart attack. If the cholesterol level is excessively high, the arterial walls may harden. Over time, this buildup, also known as plaque, causes atherosclerosis, or the hardening of the arteries. Localized constriction of the arteries supplying the heart can reduce blood flow to a section of the heart muscle. Thus, the market for cholesterol-lowering medications worldwide is dominated by the cardiovascular disease category.

Excerpts from ‘By Distribution Channel Segmentation’

Based on distribution channel, the global cholesterol lowering drugs market has been divided into:

  • Hospital Pharmacy
  • Online Pharmacy
  • Retail Pharmacy

The majority of the global market share is held by the hospital pharmacy segment. This is a result of the hospitals’ accessibility to prescription medications and high patient traffic. Patients prefer buying statins from the closest possible source, which is the hospital pharmacy, because they are a medication that is only available with a prescription.
