Angina Pectoris Drugs Market Size (2022 to 2027)

As per our report, the global angina pectoris drugs market size is estimated to grow at a CAGR of 3.2% from 2022 to 2027.

Angina pectoris is a medical condition identified by precordial heaviness or distress due to temporary myocardial ischemia without infarction, elicited by physical or mental stress. Angina pectoris is classified as - stable, unstable, microvascular, and Prinzmetal. Angina pectoris is an initial symptom of coronary heart disease and significantly affects life quality, costs to society, and workability.


The increase in the number of ischemic heart diseases, the rising geriatric population, and the adoption of a rich, westernized diet, and the subsequent growth of smoking, obesity, and diabetes are significantly driving the global angina development pectoris drugs market.

Several new investigational drugs are being tested to treat chronic angina and reduce currently marketed drugs' side effects. The increased prevalence of cardiovascular diseases and the rise in the geriatric population are driving the market growth. Growing research and development projects in the healthcare segment and augmented healthcare expenditure further expand the angina pectoris drugs market.

The angina pectoris drug market growth is further influenced by the increase in the prevalence of cardiovascular diseases and an increase in the geriatric population. The leading cause of death on the earth is cardiovascular disease. In 2015, 17.7 million people died from heart disease, accounting for 31% of all deaths worldwide. Ischemic heart disease's high prevalence has become a major medical and social concern, creating a market opportunity for market players in all geographies. Synergistic combinations, current clinical trials, and other pharmacological advances, such as novel routes of administration, dosing regimens, and so on, are all trends in the development of antianginal drugs. Increasing healthcare research and development programs and increased healthcare spending are boosting the angina pectoris drugs market forward.


Currently, only a few research activities are being conducted specifically to treat angina pectoris. Not many approvals have been granted for the novel compounds in the past few years, limiting the market growth. A majority of patients with chest pain remain undiagnosed with the possibility of suffering from angina or buying generic medicines instead of specific branded medicines, which hampers the demand in the global Angina Pectoris drugs market. Along with this, non-adherence to cardiovascular medications has also been observed among patients suffering from cardiovascular diseases, which may further hinder the market growth.

Ischemic heart disease is the most common cause of death and disability worldwide, and angina is the most common symptom. Angina affects about 9 million people in the United States, and its treatment can be challenging. The changing regulatory landscape in the United States creates a favorable climate for transformative healthcare innovations. The new Clinical Trials Regulation will impact clinical trials of Advanced Therapy Medicinal Products in the EU. Industry worries about innovative therapy ROIs appear to be a challenge to drug development.

Impact of COVID-19 on Angina Pectoris Drugs Market

The Covid-19 pandemic has impacted society and the overall economy across the world and caused uncertainty in the stock market, massive disruption of the supply chain, falling business confidence, and increasing panic among the customer segments. As the different regions' governments have already announced a complete lockdown and temporary closedown of industries, the overall production process is adversely affected, hindering the overall angina pectoris drugs globally.

This research report on the global angina pectoris drugs market has been segmented and sub-segmented based on the therapeutic class and region.

Angina Pectoris Drugs Market – By Therapeutic Class:

  • Beta-Blockers         
  • Calcium Antagonists          
  • Anticoagulants      
  • Anti-Platelets         
  • Others      

Beta-blockers work by blocking the hormone epinephrine (adrenaline) effects, which causes the heart to beat more slowly and with less force, thus easing the blood pressure. Combining nitrates with beta-blockers is most used to block tachycardia and generating a synergetic anti-ischaemic effect. The Beta-Blocker market now is predominately generic, with key patent expirations impacting GlaxoSmithKline's Coreg and AstraZeneca's Toprol. Post Pfizer's Norvasc patent being determined invalid in 2007, the Calcium Antagonist market is predominantly generic.

A few of the emerging anti-anginal drugs are nicorandil, ivabradine, ranolazine, and trimetazidine.

Angina Pectoris Drugs Market – By Region:

  • North America
  • Europe
  • Asia Pacific
  • Latin America
  • The Middle East and Africa

Geographically, the global angina pectoris drugs market was dominated by North America in 2019, with an overall market share of over 33% globally. Europe and Asia-Pacific followed North America. North America controls the Angina Pectoris Drugs market is driven by the organized healthcare infrastructure, increased adoption of therapeutics, and key manufacturers in the U.S. responsible for its large share. Ischaemic heart disease is among the significant cause of death and disability worldwide, while angina represents its most common symptom. It is estimated that approximately 9 million patients in the USA suffer from angina and its treatment is challenging. Moreover, the increasing incidence of cardiac disorders due to the sedentary lifestyle and favorable regulatory initiatives fuel market growth. Approximately 9.8 million Americans are estimated to experience angina annually, with 500,000 new angina cases occurring every year.

The European market follows North America, with EU5 leading the market share due to developed medical care facilities and a good reimbursement scenario.

The Asia Pacific is predicted to grow at a rapid pace in the coming few years. Asia Pacific region represents a vast market opportunity for the anti-angina drug market owing to the increasing number of cardiovascular problems and improvising healthcare facilities.

The Middle East and Africa represent the least market share, but a vast market opportunity has been anticipated with the increasing burden of ischemic heart diseases in these regions. Furthermore, Ischemic heart disease is the leading cause of death globally. The vast majority of it occurs outside the high-income world, increasing market opportunities in low- and middle-income countries.  


Some of the key competitors leading the Global Angina Pectoris Drugs Market profiled in this report are Sanofi, Bayer HealthCare, Cardeus Pharmaceuticals and CardioVascular BioTherapeutics (CVBT), Merck & Co. Inc., Anthera Pharmaceuticals, Cardium Therapeutics, Astellas Pharma, Ark Therapeutics Group plc, Torrent Pharmaceuticals Limited, Circ Pharma Limited, HUYA Bioscience International LLC, Lacer S.A., Viromed Co. Ltd., and Baxter Healthcare Corporation.


  • AstraZeneca and Recordati S.p.A. collaborated in May 2017 to launch Metoprolol succinate; a beta-blocker used to treat angina pectoris.
