Global Inhaled Antibiotics Market, by Product Type (Aerosol, Dry Powder Formulation, and Spray), by Application (Pneumonia, Asthma, Bronchitis, and Others), by Distribution Channel (Hospital Pharmacies, Retail Pharmacies, and Online Pharmacies), and by Region (North America, Latin America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Middle East, and Africa), is estimated to be valued at US$ 1,160.69 million in 2020 and is projected to exhibit a CAGR of 6.3% over the forecast period (2020–2027), as highlighted in a new report published by Coherent Market Insights.
Key players operating in the global market are focused on adoption of inorganic growth strategies such as acquisition and collaboration, in order to expand its product portfolio and presence in the global market.
For instance, in April 2020, Savara Inc., a clinical-stage pharmaceutical company, entered into an exclusive license and collaboration agreement with Grifols S.A., a Spanish multinational pharmaceutical and chemical manufacturer company, to develop and commercialize Apulmiq (inhaled liposomal ciprofloxacin), also known as Linhaliq, in Europe. Apulmiq is a late-stage investigational inhaled antibiotic in phase 3 development for the treatment of non-cystic fibrosis bronchiectasis (NCFB).
Moreover, in February 2020, Grifols S.A., a Spanish multinational pharmaceutical and chemical manufacturer company, acquired Aradigm Corporation, a specialty pharmaceutical company. As a result of this acquisition, Grifols S.A. purchased Lipoquin, Free Ciprofloxacin, Apulmiq, and other antibiotic portfolio of Aradigm Corporation.
Furthermore, increasing research and development activities for the development of novel products is expected to drive the market growth over the forecast period.
For instance, in September 2019, Portugal-based Hovione Technology, a company developing inhalation devices, entered into a collaboration agreement with the Kiel University’s Institute of Pharmacy in Germany. As a result of this agreement, the institution utilized Hovione’s portfolio of large dose dry-powder inhalers (DPIs) to conduct research on advanced formulation approaches for high-dose inhalation applications.
Global Inhaled Antibiotics Market - Impact of Coronavirus (Covid-19) Pandemic
Players operating in the inhaled antibiotics market are facing major challenges on a number of fronts due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The major challenges include supply of raw materials such as APIs for antibiotics manufacturing due to irregularities in transportation facility, which will affect the global distribution channel. Moreover, patients are experiencing varying levels of demand due to increasing patient population suffering from respiratory diseases such as asthma, COPD, and novel COVID-19. Moreover, patients with pre-existing medical history such as diabetes, severe asthma, and heart diseases are more vulnerable to COVID-19. There is concern that severe asthmatic patients with COVID 19 may have a worse outcome, however, there is no conclusive evidence to support this. Thus, high impact of coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic globally is expected to limit growth of the global inhaled antibiotics market in the near future.
