DUBLIN, October 20, 2021--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The "Global Intravenous Iron Drugs Market Size, Share & Trends Analysis Report by Product (Iron Dextran, Iron Sucrose, Ferric Carboxymaltose), by Application (Chronic Kidney Disease, Inflammatory Bowel Disease, Cancer), by Region, and Segment Forecasts, 2021-2028" report has been added to's offering.

The global intravenous iron drugs market size is expected to reach USD 4.2 billion by 2028 and is expected to expand at a CAGR of 8.5% from 2021 to 2028.

The introduction of novel formulations with expanded indications, increasing R&D activities, and rising awareness for diagnosis and treatment of anemia is expected to propel market demand over the forecast period.

The increase in the prevalence of chronic diseases, such as chronic kidney disease, cancer, inflammatory bowel diseases, diabetes, and acute and chronic infections, has been a major market driver facilitating a significant demand for intravenous iron drugs.

According to the Globol can estimates, in 2020, around 19,292,789 new cases of cancer were diagnosed globally, which lead to around 9,958,133 deaths in the same year. According to the data published by the CDC, in 2019, an estimated 15% of U.S. adults, or around 37 million adults, are suffering from chronic kidney disease (CKD).

The same source also stated that diabetes and high blood pressure are the major causes of CKD in adults, and CKD is more common in people aged 65 years or older. The rise in the incidence of chronic kidney disease globally, due to unhealthy lifestyles, has been a major growth factor for the market.

Furthermore, increasing approval and indication expansion of iron drugs in key markets has significantly supported market growth. In February 2021, Pharmacosmos announced that the National Medical Products Administration (NMPA) approved Monofer injection 100 mg/mL in China.

Also, in February 2018, the company announced that the U.S. FDA approved Supplemental New Drug Application (sNDA) for Feraheme (ferumoxytol injection). The FDA approved the use of Feraheme by an eligible adult suffering from Iron Deficiency Anemia (IDA).
