Cardiovascular Disease Pumps Sales of Cardiac Markers to $2,517 Million

“With the incidence of cardiovascular disease escalating, cardiac markers are in huge demand and a constant subject of research for improvement.” – Kalorama Information

Despite improvements in treatment and increased public awareness about prevention, cardiovascular disease (CVD) is still the leading cause of death worldwide. CVD causes half of all deaths in several developed countries and is the major cause of adult death in many developing countries. And though some cardiovascular events aren’t fatal, strokes and other forms of heart disease may still be debilitating enough to seriously affect functional ability. These concerns are contributing to growth in sales of cardiac markers, according to World Market for Cardiac Markers (POC and Lab-Based), a recent report by medical market research firm Kalorama Information.

Cardiac markers generated an estimated $2,517 million ($2.52 billion) in sales during 2021, largely as a result of the prevalence of cardiovascular diseases, including those of the blood vessels supplying the heart muscle and the brain. Looking ahead, the market is forecast to increase by a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 4.1% between 2021-2026, reveals World Market for Cardiac Markers (POC and Lab-Based).

Cardiac biomarkers are substances that are released into the bloodstream when the heart is damaged or stressed. In patients with chronic heart failure, measurement of these biomarkers is used to help risk stratify, to assess treatment options, monitor progress, and guide in-hospital and post-discharge care.

Physicians use cardiac markers in two ways—to diagnose a cardiac event in a hospital emergency room (acute care) or to evaluate the risk of a cardiovascular event occurring.  The traditional markers—BNP, troponin and myoglobin are used in the acute care and tests such as cholesterol are used to evaluate risk.

An aging population combined with advancements in technology are innovating the market as health care providers seek ways to meet the demand for high levels of service in a more cost-effective manner.
