Impact Analysis of Covid-19

The complete version of the Report will include the impact of the COVID-19, and anticipated change on the future outlook of the industry, by taking into the account the political, economic, social, and technological parameters.

Antibacterial drugs are majorly used in treatment and prevention of infectious diseases and are categorized into seven major classes based on their molecular structure namely, aminoglycosides, β-Lactams, tetracyclines, sulfonamides, quinolones, macrolides, and phenicols.

The global antibacterial drugs market is estimated to account for US$ 42,048.3 Mn in terms of value IN 2020 and is expected to reach US$ 44,063.3 Mn by the end of 2027.

Global Antibacterial Drugs Market: Drivers

Increasing prevalence of bacterial infections is expected to propel growth of the global antibacterial drugs market over the forecast period. For instance, according to the study, ‘Prevalence of bacterial vaginosis and associated risk factors in pregnant women receiving antenatal care at the Kumba Health District (KHD), Cameroon’, published in May 2019,  the prevalence of bacterial vaginosis was 26.2% in the study population.

Moreover, increasing approval and launch of new antibacterial drugs is also expected to aid in growth of the market. For instance, in November 2019, Shionogi Inc. received the U.S. Food and Drug Administration approval for its Fetroja (cefiderocol), an antibacterial drug for treatment of complicated urinary tract infections in patients 18 years of age or older.

β-lactams held dominant position in the global antibacterial drugs market in 2019, accounting for 59.3% share in terms of value, followed by Quinolones and Macrolides, respectively.

Global Antibacterial Drugs Market: Restraints

Increasing number of multi-drug resistant bacterial strains is expected to hinder growth of the market. Excessive usage of various antibacterial drugs has led to evolution of various multi-drug resistant bacterial strains such as vancomycin-resistant enterococci (VRE), methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA), extended-spectrum β-lactamase (ESBLs), MDR Escherichia coli, MDR Klebsiella pneumoniae, MDR Acinetobacter baumannii, MDR Pseudomonas aeruginosa, and MDR Enterococcus faecium.

Moreover, failure of current antibiotic discovery model in delivering new agents in order to contain present levels of antibiotic resistance is also expected to limit growth of the market.
