Driving Factors

The rising prevalence of chronic diseases is one of the major factors driving the heparin market, as is the rising prevalence of coagulation disorders such as venous thromboembolism (VTE), which includes both deep vein thrombosis and pulmonary embolism. Heparin can influence cancer cell angiogenesis, proliferation, migration, and invasion through a variety of mechanisms. The high cancer burden is expected to drive heparin market growth in the United States.


Restraining Factors

The primary factors limiting market growth are the side effects of heparin. The most common side effect of heparin is bleeding. Heparin can cause spontaneous bleeding from open wounds or surgical sites, the intestines and stomach, the ovaries and uterus, and the mouth and gums. These side effects can hinder market growth during the forecast period.


Market Segment

  • In 2023, the low molecular weight heparin segment accounted for the largest revenue share over the forecast period.

Based on the type, the United States heparin market is segmented into low molecular-weight heparin and ultra-low molecular weight heparin. Among these, the low molecular weight heparin segment has the largest revenue share over the forecast period. The segment's dominance can be attributed to the high rate of product acceptance in developed markets and the superior safety profiles of these goods when compared to competitors. Fragmin (Dalteparin sodium), Lovenox (Enoxaparin sodium), and Innohep are three important LMWH (Tinzaparin sodium) medications. Several industry participants are also focusing on the development and introduction of new LMWH products to the market.

Based on application, the United States heparin market is segmented into atrial fibrillation and heart attack, stroke, deep vein thrombosis (DVT), and Others. Among these, the deep vein thrombosis (DVT) segment has a significant revenue share over the forecast period. A deep-vein thrombosis (DVT) is a blood clot that forms within the deep veins of the arms, as well as the mesenteric and cerebral veins. The exact number of people infected with deep vein thrombosis was unknown as of 2020, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), though people were expected to be affected each year in the United States. According to the Centers for Disease Control. Thus, the rising prevalence of deep vein thrombosis is expected to drive demand for heparin-based products, boosting market growth over the forecast period.
