Ongoing Research Report

In the News
Feb 24, 2017: Researchers from John Hopkin University reviewed the trials of PDE-5 inhibitors in pediatric patients with pulmonary hypertension. The researchers concluded that PDE-5 inhibitors can be safely prescribed to infants, neonates, and children with primary and secondary pulmonary hypertension

Introduction to Phosphodiesterase Inhibitors

Phosphodiesterase (PDE) inhibitors are termed as therapeutic agents that target PDE isoenzymes and prevents the metabolism of the secondary messengers (cyclic adenosine monophosphate, cyclic guanosine monophosphate) and prolonging the biological effect. Theophylline and papaverine are the two broadly used non-selective phosphodiesterase enzyme inhibitors and are widely accepted to treat various diseases such as cardiovascular, respiratory, and erectile dysfunction. Distinct distribution of all the types of isoenzymes has provided possibilities for selective target therapies. The introduction of selective phosphodiesterase enzyme inhibitors leads to a great impact on the medical treatment sector. Phosphodiesterase superfamily is complex, large, contains one of four genes, and represents 11 gene families from phosphodiesterase 1 to phosphodiesterase 11. The enzymes are found in plasma membranes, cytosol, nuclear membranes, endoplasmic reticulum, and the cytoskeleton.

Market Size and Forecast

The global phosphodiesterase inhibitors market is projected to register a significant rise on account of the escalating prevalence of erectile dysfunction by various factors such as hypertension, obesity, testosterone deficiency, diabetes mellitus, and consumption of certain substance abuse and medications can lead to erectile dysfunction. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), about 150 million people have been affected by erectile dysfunction and this is projected to reach 230 million by 2025. It is a common medical condition affecting about 15% of men each year. Moreover, increasing cases of chronic diseases such as stroke, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, heart diseases, pre-diabetes, and diabetes are estimated to support the development of phosphodiesterase inhibitors.

Growth Drivers

Rising Prevalence Of Chronic Disease And Erectile Dysfunction

The phosphodiesterase inhibitors market is estimated to witness robust growth on account of the growing concern for the chronic diseases such as heart disease, stroke, diabetes, and prediabetes amongst individuals worldwide, which is raising the need for the treatment of the diseases. Further, increasing expenditure for the treatment of such chronic diseases is also anticipated to drive the growth of the market. According to the World Health Organization, 17.9 million people die each year from cardiovascular disease, an estimated 31% of all death worldwide. Moreover, escalating the prevalence of erectile dysfunction multiple factors, such as diabetes mellitus, testosterone deficiency, prostate cancer, obesity, hypertension, and hyperlipidemia are estimated to support the development of the global market. Furthermore, rapid urbanization and the inherent lifestyle changes, along with high stress at the workplace are rendering young men more susceptible to erectile dysfunction.

By Region

On the basis of regional analysis, the phosphodiesterase inhibitors market is segmented into five major regions including North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, and the Middle East & Africa region.

North America is projected to account for the highest share of the phosphodiesterase inhibitors market throughout the forecast period on account of factors such as the presence of large pharmaceutical companies and increasing lifestyle changes are contributing to the phosphodiesterase inhibitors market growth in the region.

The phosphodiesterase inhibitors market is further classified on the basis of region as follows:

  • North America (U.S. & Canada) Market size, Y-O-Y growth & Opportunity Analysis
