Shifting lifestyle complemented with changing food habits is one of the prime reasons for the growth of acute coronary syndrome market. ACS (Acute Coronary Syndrome) is a medical condition resulting due to reduction in blood flow in the arteries.

The global acute coronary syndrome market is studied under three main types namely; ST-elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI), non-ST-elevation myocardial infarction (NSTEMI) and unstable angina (UA). When body suffers from shortage of blood flow and oxygen then chances of unstable angina occurrence increases which may leads to heart attack. NSTEMI generally occurs when the coronary artery is partially blocked by blood clots. STEMI occurs when the coronary artery is fully blocked by clot which may result in death of the patient. By drugs, the market is segmented into antithrombotic, antihypertensive and statin drugs market. Antihypertensive drugs are anticipated to show lucrative growth over the forecast period owing to increasing incidences of high blood pressure, myocardial infarction and stroke.
