Report Digest

Telmisartan, medication sold under the brand name Micardis is consumed alone or in combination with other medications for decreasing the chances of heart attack or stroke among people above 55 years of age. The medication is consumed to control high blood pressure but cannot treat it. Telmisartan is an angiotensin II receptor blocker. As the medication lowers the blood pressure and blood and oxygen flow towards the heart more easily, therefore relaxes the blood vessels. Increasing number of patients of high blood pressure, and rising cases of chronic diseases is anticipated to grow Telmisartan market during the forecast period 2021-2031.

Increasing Incidences of Chronic Kidney Disease Globally

Loss in kidney functioning is one of the prime causes of death globally. With the primary reasons such as high blood pressure, diabetes, obesity, smoking, etc., need for telmisartan for moderately treating the kidney disease may grow further. According to International Society of Nephrology, there are almost 850 million people globally suffering from some kind of kidney disease. The prevalence of chronic kidney disease is 10.4% among men and 11.8% among women. In a recent study, researchers have found high dose of Telmisartan may be effective in patients suffering from chronic kidney disease, especially those who are suffering from overt proteinuria. Therefore, new researches and advances are helping the Telmisartan market to grow.

Increasing Cardiovascular Diseases

According to World Heart Federation, there are over 17 million deaths due to cardiovascular diseases globally. Out of which 9.4 million are due to raised blood pressure. Raised blood pressure contributes to the cause of almost 45% of all heart related deaths and 51% of all stroke related deaths. Researchers report that lowered blood pressure help in reducing heart attacks or cardiovascular events by 35-40%. Prevalent cases of cardiovascular diseases have nearly doubled in 20 years and therefore, the need for medication is more than ever. Number of deaths among cardiovascular patients globally was almost 18.6 million in 2019. Furthermore, with the increasing geriatric population in many parts of the world, the chances of people suffering with diseases are higher and thus, Telmisartan may have a lucrative demand.  

Anti-Diabetic Effect of Telmisartan may be a Lucrative Opportunity for the Market

Telmisartan can be an alternative option with dual benefit for diabetes mellitus and hypertension. As per a research article published on, Telmisartan is reported to have a partial PPARy agonistic effect which modify the genes needed for insulin sensitization. Telmisartan can regulate glucose and lipid metabolism, therefore improves insulin resistance. Telmisartan promotes glucose uptake and act as insulin sensitizing agent in adipocytes. Therefore, usage of Telmisartan for anti-diabetic effect and hyper tension helps in lowering the amount of pills a person consumes thus, reducing the side effects which can occur due to consuming different medicines.   

Severe Side Effects of the Medicine can inhibit the Growth

There can be many mild and severe side effects of the medicine.
