The global clostridium difficile diagnostics and treatment market by Product Type (By Drug (Metronidazole, Vancomycin, Fidaxomicin, and Bezlotoxumab), By Diagnostic Test (Enzyme Immunoassays, Real-Time Polymerase Chain Reaction (RT-PCR), Nucleic Amplification Tests (NAAT), and Others)), By Distribution Channel (Hospitals & Clinics, Diagnostic Laboratories, and Pharmacies), and Region (North America, Latin America, Europe, Asia Pacific, the Middle East, and Africa) was valued at US$ 1,272.2 million in 2016 and is projected to exhibit a CAGR of 8.2% over the forecast period (2017–2025).
Clostridium difficile infection diagnostics and treatment market is expected to witness significant growth over the forecast period, due to increased antibiotic consumption resulting in damage to natural flora, which creates a conducive environment for growth of C.difficile bacterium. Furthermore, factors such as presence of sensitive and easily accessible diagnostic tests, and availability of generic antibiotics (metronidazole, and Vancomycin), and is expected to fuel growth of the clostridium difficile diagnostics and treatment market.
Prevalence of clostridium difficile infection is increasing, and it is the most common healthcare-associated infection according to Center for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC), 2015. In order to cater to increasing demand for drugs, generic manufacturers have capitalized on patent losses of standard antibiotics for the treatment of clostridium difficile infection such as metronidazole and vancomycin. Lupin Ltd., Sandoz, Inc., Mylan Laboratories Ltd., and others offer generic version of these antibiotics. Furthermore, manufacturers are developing novel therapies such as monoclonal antibodies for the treatment of this disease. For instance, the U.S. Food & Drug Administration approved Merck & Co., Inc.’s Zinplava (Bezlotoxumab) in 2016, indicated for prevention of recurrence of CDI, and the company launched Zinplava in the U.K. in January 2018. CutisPharma launched FIRVANQ (vancomycin hydrochloride), an oral solution, in April 2018. Increasing research and development of alternative therapies such as microbiome therapeutics and vaccines (by Pfizer, Inc., and Valneva) is expected to positively impact growth of the clostridium difficile treatment market over the forecast period.
