Lipids are important biomolecules, for example cholesterol acts as precursor for steroid hormones and bile acids. However, any kind of lipid in excess is not good for health. Lipid regulators, apart from cholesterol control, deal with fragile bones with high susceptibility to break which is termed as Osteoporosis and also they keep a check on myocardial infarctions which is commonly known as heart attack.

Recently due to increase in prevalence of diseases like Dyslipidemia, have increased the demand for lipid regulators. Dyslipidemia increases the chance of clogged arteries (atherosclerosis) and heart attacks, stroke or other circulatory concerns, especially in smokers. Moreover, geriatric population is more prone to cardiovascular diseases. In the elderly age group, lipid-altering medication has been proven to reduce cardiovascular risk.

Hence, these factors are helping the growth of the market. However, lack of awareness regarding the lipid regulators and presence of low-cost generics have been hindering the market growth.

Key Market Trends

Statins Segment are Expected to Dominate the Market

Dyslipidemia, defined as elevated total or low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol levels, or low levels of high-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol, is an important risk factor for coronary heart disease (CHD) and stroke. The prevalence of dyslipidemia increases in diabetic population.

According to a report by Yaru Li et al., published in PLoS One Journal 2018, the prevalence of dyslipidemia in the Chinese population was 39.9%, 46.8%, and 59.3% in population with normal glucose, prediabetes, and type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM). Moreover, the diabetic population has increased over the years.

As per a World Health Organization 2018 report, the number of people with diabetes has risen from 108 million in 1980 to 422 million in 2014, resulting in a rise in global prevalence of diabetes among adults over 18 years of age from 4.7% in 1980 to 8.5% in 2014. Hence, the increasing prevalence of diabetes may result in increasing prevalence of dyslipidemia.

The statins competitively inhibit HMG-CoA reductase. Statins are more effective than other lipid-regulating drugs at lowering LDL-cholesterol concentration. Hence, the demand for statins is expected to increase as prevalence of dyslipidemia increases.

In addition, the lipid regulatory market is being dominated by statin and most of the statin drugs patents are coming to an end and there would be an increased competition in the generics.

North America is Expected to Dominate the Lipid Regulators Market

According to OECD, the North American countries of United States and Mexico have one of the highest prevalence of Obesity and Diabetes in the world. Moreover, being overweight or obese increases the chances of developing the common type of diabetes, type 2 diabetes. As the presence of diabetes increases the risk of dyslipidemia, its prevalence is expected to increase.

However, the United States (US) and Canada have a developed and well-structured health care system. These systems also encourage research and development. These policies encourage global players to enter the US and Canada. As a result, these countries enjoy the presence of many global market players. As high and increasing demand is met by the presence of global players in the region, the market is further expected to increase.

Competitive Landscape

Majority of the lipid regulators are being manufactured by the global key players. Market leaders with more funds for research and better distribution system have established their position in the market. Moreover, Asia-pacific is witnessing an emergence of some small players due to the rise of awareness. This has also helped the market grow.
