Antibiotics Market Reports 2020 by Key Players, Types, Applications, Countries, Market Size, Forecast to 2030 (Based on 2020 COVID-19 Worldwide Spread)

Antibiotics are the antimicrobial substances that are active against bacteria. They help fight bacterial infections and these medications are extensively used in the treatment and preventing infections. Antibiotics either prevent the growth of bacteria in the body or kill the bacteria. But, these medications are not effective against viruses like common cold or influenza. Antibiotics are basically antibacterials that are specially designed to kill the bacterial infections in or within the body. This differentiates antibiotics from other major types of antimicrobials used today. Most antibiotics used widely are produced in laboratories but are based on natural compounds found by scientists. These antibiotics essentially treat the bacteria growth, but few antibiotics are highly specialized to be effective against some specific types of bacteria. Other types of antibiotics, called broad-spectrum antibiotics, kill most of the bacteria, including the ones beneficial to human body.

The ongoing crisis of COVID-19 is increasing the demand for antibiotics. This is expected to ultimately strengthen the bacterial resistance and result in more deaths during pandemic. Increased use of antibiotics will affect the burden of diseases in the ongoing pandemic as well as post pandemic. Besides, the patients who are currently suffering from COVID-19 are given large amounts of antibiotics to prevent secondary bacterial infections.

The market growth of antibiotics can be attributed to factors, such as increasing incidents of infectious diseases such as diarrhea, pneumonia, malaria, tuberculosis, and others. This leads to an increased demand for antibiotics production. According to UNICEF, in 2017, diarrhea accounted for approximately 8 percent of all deaths among children under the age of 5 worldwide. Furthermore, increasing investments in R&D by major biopharmaceutical companies are also leading to market growth.

Other factors, such as supportive government policies, are expected to provide lucrative growth opportunities for the market. For instance, the U.S. government enacted the Generating Antibiotic Incentives Now Act (GAIN Act) of 2012, which provides benefits to manufacturers of Qualified Infectious Disease Products (QIDPs) including 5 years of additional nonpatent exclusivity. Moreover, technological advancements in the development of innovative drugs by the key players will also boost market growth.

However, the development of bacterial resistance is on the rise and renders the antibiotic or its entire class ineffective, which may curb market growth to a certain extent.

Asia Pacific is estimated to be the fast-growing region owing to its large population base, high prevalence of infectious diseases, regulation reforms, and greater utilization of generic medicines in this region. Furthermore, R&D activities by key market players for the development of innovative products are also expected to support growth in the Asia Pacific region. These factors are also key growth contributors across this region.
