Retail Pharmacy Drives Domination of North America in Citicoline Industry

Citicoline is a type of nucleic acid which is also commonly known as CDP-Choline. This nucleic acid plays an essential role in the development of phospholipids from the brain. In turn the cells of the brain have the capability to transform citicoline into a phospholipid component in the cell membrane called phosphatidylcholine.

Citicoline is thought to play a major role in the stable functioning of cell membranes, and is also play an indirect role in a number of vital functions such as maintaining memory, and sexual function among others.

North American Healthcare System to Continue Dominance

A number of manufacturers for citicoline based drugs are focusing their business strategies to fit the needs of the North American healthcare industry. Consequently, these companies are increasing consumer awareness campaigns, most of which are targeted at the baby boomer demographic.

In addition to public education, manufacturers are also focusing on the development of alternative medicine formats, such as using the high levels of solubility to create citicoline infused beverages. These developments are being augmented by a rising number of collaborations, mergers and acquisitions, by companies in the region. For instance, Elder Pharmaceuticals has entered into an agreement involving licensing, with Spain based Ferrer SA, to produce a citicoline compound.

On the other hand, while citicoline has displayed success in treating neurological conditions, the compound also causes a wide range of side effects including fluctuating blood pressure, gastrointestinal issues, insomnia, headaches, tachycardia, bradycardia, and hypotension among others. This factor is expected to hinder the global citicoline industry for the foreseeable future.
