Candidiasis Market – Global Industry Insights, Trends, Outlook, and Opportunity Analysis, 2016–2024

Candidiasis is a type of infection caused due to candida—an yeast and also classified as fungus, which is present in the human body. It is usually present in places like mouth, belly, and on the skin. The overgrowth of these leads to an infection.

There are various types of infections caused due to candidiasis, such as thrush/ oropharyngeal candidiasis, genital yeast infection/ invasive infection, and cutaneous candidiasis. Thrush/ oropharyngeal candidiasis affects the mouth or throat; genital yeast infection affects the vagina; and cutaneous candidiasis is the infection of the skin. When the infection enters into the blood stream, the condition is called Candidemia. Candidiasis can be diagnosed by physical observation. These conditions are usually treated using over-the-counter antifungal medicines and also specific prescription-based antifungal medicines.

Increasing consumer awareness about candidiasis and growing number of treatment options are major factors fueling growth of the candidiasis market. Conversely, dearth of R&D activities, low product availability, and easy access to alternative treatment methods such as use of herbal medicines inhibits growth of the candidiasis market.
