Antibiotics and Corticosteroids Market — Global Industry Insights, Trends, Outlook, and Opportunity Analysis, 2017–2025

Antibiotics are used to terminate the bacterial growth or bacteria itself in the case of bacterial infection, whereas, corticosteroids are used to treat the allergy and inflammatory condition. There are some functions which corticosteroids can perform while antibiotics cannot perform and vice-versa. At times, the physician prescribes the dose of antibiotics in addition with corticosteroids so that antibiotic will help attack the microorganism cell wall whereas the inflammatory process can be tackled by the corticosteroids. Corticosteroids also decreases the pain related to inflammation by inhibiting chemical mediators. Over dosage or misuse of both  compounds might lead to adverse effects such as failure of immune system.

Efficacy of combine treatment of antibiotics and corticosteroids on several chronic diseases is the major factor for growth of antibiotics and corticosteroids market

 The use of antibiotics with the combination of corticosteroids has proven effective in the treatment of human respiratory syncytial virus (hRSV) infection, Cepacia syndrome, S. Aureus arthritis, pneumonia, Zika Virus, and Ebola.

However, around 3.4 million children are infected with the human Respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) which is associated to acute lower respiratory infections (ALRI). Supportive government activities in the favor of antibiotics and corticosteroids production is helping to boost the antibiotic and corticosteroids market. For instance, introduction of Antibiotics Incentives Now (GAIN) act which has the provisions to facilitate the development of therapy against antigen resistant pathogens is expected to propel the approval for antibiotics.

However, some of the restraints which are likely to hamper the growth of antibiotics and corticosteroids market include the adverse effect on high intake or misuse of both antibiotics and corticosteroids, use in animals which are later consumed by humans, and regulations and policies on use of antibiotics and corticosteroids.
