Fibroblast Growth Factors (FGFs) are a family of signaling proteins that play crucial roles in various physiological processes. These proteins, comprising 22 members in humans, are involved in cell growth, proliferation, tissue repair, and embryonic development. FGFs exert their effects by binding to specific cell surface receptors, mainly tyrosine kinase receptors, initiating intracellular signaling cascades. The binding triggers a series of events, including activation of the MAPK and PI3K pathways, leading to diverse cellular responses like cell division, migration, and differentiation. FGFs are instrumental in angiogenesis, aiding in forming new blood vessels during tissue repair and development. Furthermore, they contribute to wound healing by stimulating the migration and proliferation of fibroblasts. In developmental disorders, FGFs have been implicated in skeletal and craniofacial abnormalities due to their role in embryogenesis. Conversely, abnormal FGF signaling can be linked to cancer development, as FGFs promote tumor cell proliferation, survival, and angiogenesis. Besides, FGFs' involvement in glucose metabolism and adipocyte function ties them to metabolic disorders like diabetes and obesity. The intricate role of FGFs in various biological processes makes them attractive targets for therapeutic interventions in diseases like cancer, tissue injuries, and developmental disorders. By manipulating FGF signaling, researchers aim to develop treatments that promote tissue repair, control tumor growth, and potentially address metabolic disorders. Extensive research is being conducted globally to discover new and novel molecules to be used as Fibroblast Growth Factors (FGF) to be used for the treatment of many indications of blood coagulation disorders. The development and launch of new products will thus increase the market's revenue in the forecasted years.

A number of these stimulators are in the market, while many are in ongoing clinical trials. 46 companies have about 44 products in their pipelines, with 34 products in various stages of clinical trials – 8 in Phase 4, 24 in Phase 3, and 23 in Phase 2 of the clinical trials.
