Global Infectious Disease Therapeutics Market Size (2024 to 2029)

The global infectious disease therapeutics market is predicted to grow at a CAGR of 7.96% from 2024 to 2029. The market is forecasted to grow to USD 193.96 billion by 2029 from USD 132.25 billion in 2024.

Infectious diseases are caused by pathogens such as bacteria, viruses, fungi, and parasites. These diseases can be transmitted from one another by direct contact or indirect contact, and Anti-infective drugs are used to inhibit the disease's growth. These drugs can act through the host defense system and directly target the causative agent. Globally, significant problems to public health are posed by infectious diseases such as malaria, HIV, tuberculosis, influenza, hepatitis A, and hepatitis C. In addition, these diseases are the primary cause of death in the world.

MARKET DRIVERS

The growing incidence of infectious diseases is majorly propelling the infectious disease therapeutics market growth.

The population suffering from infectious diseases is growing consistently worldwide. According to the statistics published by the Centers for Disease Prevention and Control (CDC), 8916 people from tuberculosis, 58,371 people from salmonella, 34,945 people from Lyme, and 371 from meningococcal diseases suffered in the United States in 2021. COVID-19, caused by the coronavirus, is the latest infectious disease and spread throughout the world and resulted in a pandemic. Such instances are further propelling the infectious disease therapeutics market.

The growing use of direct-acting antivirals, increasing healthcare expenditure, the growing geriatric population, rising healthcare awareness, and increasing government funding in developing countries are contributing to the global infectious disease therapeutics market growth.

Furthermore, the growing prevalence of the acceptance of advanced technological developments in healthcare centers is ascribed to bolstering the market's demand. Furthermore, increasing disposable income in developed and developing countries also outshines the growth rate of this market. Moreover, raising awareness of various diseases and knowing the benefits of early diagnosis among individuals is lucrative to surge growth opportunities for the infectious disease therapeutics market. Also, introducing reimbursement schemes in favor of ordinary people is lavishing this market's demand.

Furthermore, the rising advancements in the drugs for treating infectious diseases by pharmaceuticals are also supporting the expansion of the market. In addition, the continuous research and development of advanced treatment methods and the need to curb the death toll associated with infectious diseases are pushing the market's growth. According to WHO reports, communicable diseases, including infectious conditions, were a significant cause of death and, therefore, needed constant monitoring.

MARKET RESTRAINTS

The lack of skilled persons in manufacturing effective drugs is hindering the growth of the infectious disease therapeutics market.

Rapid changes in economic strategies may also negatively impact the development of the infectious therapeutics market. The availability of alternative methods at a lower cost and less knowledge of generic erosion are significant challenges to the market participants. On the other hand, the primary factors restraining the market's growth are generic erosion and patent expiration of infectious disease drugs.

Impact Of COVID-19 On The Global Infectious Disease Therapeutics Market

The outbreak of COVID-19 is unexpectedly affecting many countries. The virus affects vast numbers of people, especially patients with infectious diseases. The rising cases of COVID-19 everywhere escalated the growth rate of the infectious disease therapeutics market. Many key players are racing to find a vaccine or drugs for the novel coronavirus. Meanwhile, infectious disease therapeutics are the only way to control the spread of infectious diseases. Therefore, the market's growth is expected to accelerate slowly during the forecast period.

SEGMENTAL ANALYSIS

Global Infectious Disease Therapeutics Market Analysis By Mode of Treatment

The drug mode of treatment is predicted to register the largest share of the global market during the forecast period. The rising elderly population worldwide and an increase in spending on healthcare, especially in well-developed countries, are promoting the market's growth rate.

However, the vaccine segment is also expected to grow significantly during the forecast period as all children from birth to a particular age must take certain essential vaccines. Moreover, with the increasing number of diseases, essential vaccines keep increasing. For example, the recent COVID-19 pandemic has made it essential for everyone to get two doses of vaccines against COVID-19 for disease prevention.

Global Infectious Disease Therapeutics Market Analysis By Target Organism

The antibacterial segment accounted for a significant share of the global market in 2023 and is estimated to continue its dominance during the forecast period. A rise in the number of people suffering from various infectious diseases like HIV, tuberculosis, influenza, hepatitis A, and hepatitis C increases market demand. In addition, growing disposable income in urban areas is further favoring the market's growth rate.

However, the antifungal and antiviral segments are also expected to account for a notable share of the global market during the forecast period owing to the growing cases of viral and fungal infections needing treatments. For instance, conditions such as AIDS, Common cold, Ebola, Genital herpes, Influenza, Measles, Chickenpox and shingles, Coronavirus disease, and others are all viral. In addition, Aspergillosis, Aspergillosis, Blastomycosis, Blastomycosis, Candidiasis, Coccidioidomycosis, C. neoformans Infection, C. gattii Infection, and Fungal Eye Infections are all fungal diseases.

Global Infectious Disease Therapeutics Market Analysis By Infection Type

The bacterial infection segment has been growing faster over the past few years and is also anticipated to reach the highest CAGR. Introducing innovative products manufactured with advanced technology boosts the market's growth rate.

However, as viral and fungal conditions become more common, the segments are expected to gain traction during the forecast period.

Global Infectious Disease Therapeutics Market Analysis By Distribution Channel

The hospital segment is forecasted to lead among all during the forecast period. A rise in hospitals' construction with the latest equipment is fuelling the growth rate of the infectious disease therapeutics market.

However, the clinics segment is expected to grow considerably during the forecast period due to the rising establishment of individual clinics worldwide.
