Awareness about benefits of lipid-lowering drugs to reduce risks of ischemic heart disease, myocardial infarction, and stroke is likely to augment the market value. Adoption of statins, niacin, and inhibitors of PCSK9 as popular lipid-modifying agents to treat hypercholesterolemia and hypertriglyceridemia is expected to accelerate the lipid-lowering drugs market development.
