Cardiotonic agents are medicines used to improve contractile power of myocardium which helps in the effective blood circulation. Cardiac insufficiency leads to insufficient blood supply to organs which causes weariness, breathlessness, and edema. Ischemic heart disease and arterial hypertension are the two main causes of cardiac insufficiency and the drugs used for its treatment known as cardiotonic agents. There are several other medications such as glycosides, sympathomimetics, and others used for the treatment of congestive heart failure, cardiac surgical procedures, shock, and other conditions.

New and improved cardiotonic drugs are constantly being developed and launched in the global market. Several innovative medications are being created to focus on particular heart failure mechanisms. The effectiveness of available medications can be enhanced by the creation of new drugs with reduced side effects. The World Health Organisation (WHO) estimates that four out of every five deaths from cardiovascular disorders are attributable to cardiovascular diseases, such as heart attacks and strokes.

The market for cardiotonic agents expected to experience new growth prospects as personalized medical techniques such as genetic testing become more prevalent. Healthcare professionals are inclining towards personalize therapy for patients by locating specific genetic markers linked to heart failure, perhaps improving outcomes. Additionally, various factors such as an aging population, hypertension, myocardial infarction, and heart failure are anticipated to support the cardiotonic agents market growth. According to Heart Society of America, by 2030, more than 6.5 million North Americans is expected to have heart failure, bringing the total to more than 8 million. Furthermore, Heart Society of America also stated that, the overall cost of care for North Americans with heart failure is anticipated to increase from $30.7 billion in 2012 to 69.7 billion in 2030 due to the increasing number of patients.

For instance, In January 2022, Merck & Co., Inc. announced the phase II clinical trial completion of Vericiguat, which improves cardiac function by activating guanylate cyclase.

Furthermore, Asia Pacific anticipated the highest CAGR in global cardiotonic agents market, owing to the rising prevalence of cardiovascular disorders among geriatric population. Cardiotonic agents' market expansion has been significantly influenced by the medical community owing to the significant increase in awareness of the potential benefits of these drugs. In addition, increasing disposable incomes and a growing prevalence of cardiovascular diseases are likely to create demand for these drugs in Asia Pacific.

Partnerships, acquisitions, product approvals, product developments, and new product launches were found to be the major strategies adopted by the players operating in the global cardiotonic agents market.

  • In February 2022, Roche completed the phase III clinical trials for its furosemide drug. This drug is used in heart failure conditions; it's a loop diuretic that lowers fluid build-up in the body and improves cardiac function.
  • In November 2021, Novartis completed the phase III clinical trials for its oral thrombin inhibitor drug, Entresto. This drug is used in heart failure conditions, with preserved ejection fraction. It's a major form of heart failure and is difficult to treat.
  • In December 2021, Pfizer Inc. completed the phase III clinical trials for its oral thrombin inhibitor, betrixaben drug. Betrixaben is used to prevent blood clots in acutely ill medical patients.

The covid-19 pandemic led to a decline in the progress of many industries across the globe. The closure of manufacturing plants and restricted trade across the globe led to supply chain constraints for manufacturers across the globe. The cardiotonic agents market growth experienced sudden decline during the pandemic due to the limited supply of drugs and the decrease in the number of cardiac surgeries globally. This is because of the cancellation of many non-essential surgical procedures across the world. Conversely, the cardiotonic agents market is growing after the significant efforts taken by market stakeholders and healthcare practitioners to manage the disrupted supply chain. The rising demand for cardiotonic agents owing to increasing incidences of heart failure and the rise in the geriatric population prone to cardiovascular conditions are driving the market growth. In 2021, the roll out of COVID-19 vaccines has created the positive outcomes which led to the increased production to fulfil the rising demand from large population. Additionally, the patient recovered from COVID-19 is experiencing the cardiovascular problems which are likely to intensify the demand for cardiotonic agents in the near future.
