Demand of Anti-infective Agents to Reach US$ 195.8 Billion by 2032: Fact.MR Report


The Anti-infective Agents Market Will Rise As A Result of Factors Including the Rising Prevalence of Infectious Disorders and Antimicrobial Resistance to Already Available Anti-Infective Drugs

Rockville, Feb. 03, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- In fiscal year 2022, the market for anti-infective drugs is projected to be valued at US$ 141 Billion, up from US$ 136 Billion in fiscal year 2021. The market is anticipated to increase at a 3.3% CAGR from 2022 to 2032, reaching a value of US$ 195.8 Billion by the end of 2033.

The approval of new medications is also projected to spur market expansion throughout the forecast period. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA), for instance, approved drugs like Zepatier by Merck, which treats adult patients with chronic Hepatitis C virus (HCV) genotypes 1 or 4 infections, and Descovy by Gilead, which treats HIV-1 infection, in 2016. These developments will lead to a larger need for anti-infective drugs from 2022 to 2032.

Fact.MR estimates predict that the market will grow as a consequence of factors such the increased prevalence of infectious diseases and antimicrobial resistance to anti-infective medications that are currently on the market. A few other factors that are projected to assist development include growing health consciousness, knowledge of the accessibility of diagnostics for infectious diseases, and preventive hazards associated with early identification.

However, the prospective growth of the study market is constrained by the emergence of anti-infective drug resistance and its detrimental consequences, as well as a shortage of resources in healthcare facilities, particularly in emerging nations. Due to the high price of anti-infective treatments, the demand for the items in this market is also decreasing. Additionally, inconsistent reimbursement policies in different nations are preventing a smooth global expansion of the anti-infective business.
