Pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH), a type of pulmonary hypertension results from high blood pressure associated with arteries of the lungs. In PAH, the arteries of the lungs (pulmonary arteries) become narrower than their actual size, giving rise to high blood pressure in the arteries of the lungs thus putting pressure on the right ventricle of the heart. Some of the main causes of occurrences of this disease are bad habits such as stressful lifestyle, intake of certain medicines etc. There is no exact treatment available for PAH but existing medication may help treat the symptoms. Moreover, if not treated in time the condition may worsen, because continuously straining the pulmonary arteries will put strain on the heart’s functioning and can be life threatening.
The global PAH market is set to grow at a healthy growth rate due to increasing number of patients identified with PAH, increased competition among existing products, advancement in treatment options and more efficacious therapies.  Some of the major drugs available for the treatment of PAH include Letairis (ambrisentan), Adcirca (tadalafil), Tracleer (bosentan), Ventavis (iloprost), Tyvaso (inhaled treprostinil), Remodulin (treprostinil), Veletri (epoprostenol) and Revatio (sildenafil). Revatio, Remodulin and Letairis/Volibris were some of the leading drugs in some of the major geographies such as the U.S., Spain, U.K., France, Germany, Italy, and Japan.  The PAH market is segmented on the basis of mechanism of action which includes platelet aggregation inhibitors, serotonin pathway antagonists, angiotensin receptor antagonists, endothelin receptor antagonists, PDE5 inhibitors, phosphodiesterase inhibitors, P2Y 12 receptor inhibitors, nitric oxide synthetase inhibitors and prostacyclin (PGI2) agonists.
