The global infectious disease therapeutics market size valued USD 112.4 billion in 2020 and expected to reach USD 168.8 billion by 2027, at a CAGR of 7.8% during the forecast period 2021-2027. Infectious diseases are caused by organisms, such as bacteria, virus, fungi or parasites. Many organisms live in our body but few of them cause diseases. These infectious diseases transmitted from one individual to other either by direct or indirect contact. The drugs used for the infectious diseases are antibiotics, antiviral, and antiparasitic, among others. Infectious disease therapeutics acts directly on organisms or helps body system to fight infections. Infectious diseases include HIV, malaria, tuberculosis, hepatitis, and influenza, among others. Market players focusing on mergers, acquisitions and collaborations to increase revenue share in the market. For instance, in August 2016, Pfizer acquired AstraZeneca’s late-stage small molecule anti-infectives business for development and commercialization outside the U.S. In addition, market players investing on research and development to introduce new drugs and to strengthen their position in infectious disease therapeutics market. Some of the pipeline anti infectives include avycaz (ceftazidime and avibactam), bictegravir (Anti HIV), cabotegravir (Anti HIV). Patent expiry of blockbuster anti-infectives such as Tamiflu, cubicin and ambisome are expected to negatively effect the infectious disease therapeutics market.
