Antibiotics Market: Key Drivers, Trends, and Challenges

Based on our research output, there has been a neutral impact on the market growth during and post COVID-19 era. The rising prevalence of infectious diseases is notably driving the global antibiotics market growth, although factors such as development of antibiotic-resistant strains may impede market growth. Our research analysts have studied the historical data and deduced the key market drivers and the COVID-19 pandemic impact on the global antibiotics industry. The holistic analysis of the drivers will help in deducing end goals and refining marketing strategies to gain a competitive edge.

Key Antibiotics Market Driver

The rising prevalence of infectious diseases are one of the key factors driving the growth of the global antibiotics market. Demographic changes caused by increased globalization and urbanization are major factors leading to the global emergence of infectious diseases. Urbanization has led to the overcrowding of human inhabitants. High population densities in these areas favor the colonization of disease pathogens and their persistence in human populations. The expansion of human cities has negatively affected our ecosystems and natural landscapes. For instance, deforestation destroys the natural habitats of animals, which now localize near human habitats. Often these animals are vectors for pathogen transmission and, thus, their movement near human habitats also poses a risk of infection transmission to humans. The growing number of dams, poor living conditions, lack of sanitation, and inadequate waste management systems are some of the other factors that have increased the incidence and prevalence of diseases. In addition, the changes in environmental conditions and the growing trade and travel are contributing to the increase in the occurrence of infectious diseases among people.

Key Antibiotics Market Trend

The strategic alliances and mergers and acquisitions will fuel the global antibiotics market. The formation of strategic alliances, in terms of licensing and collaboration, helps in the co-development and commercialization of drugs in different regions. Co-development agreements between different companies enable the use of technical expertise from both companies. These agreements also allow the use of regulatory and development experience gained by one company for the support of pipeline candidates of another company. Such agreements ensure the inflow of adequate funds from both the companies and help to reduce liability costs for individual companies in case of failures and attract more venture investments. M&A is usually intended to increase the market penetration of the acquirer or to enhance the product portfolio of the parent company. Such a deal agreement allows the greater exposure of the drug in different regions. Also, smaller companies that are running short of revenue for the development of their drugs, often go for the M&A. Such agreements enable the complete development of the drugs and provide co-development and commercialization rights for the drugs in different regions.

Key Antibiotics Market Challenge

The development of antibiotic-resistant strains are a major challenge for the global antibiotics market growth. The development of multidrug-resistant microbes is one of the major threats to human health in the present day. The microbe changes itself to protect against the antimicrobial agent used and thereby develops resistance to the drug. Antibiotic resistance usually develops due to the irrational use of these drugs. The wrong prescription of the drugs by the physicians or the incorrect dosing or course taken by the individual due to lack of awareness along with the rampant use of these drugs in livestock, poultry, and other animal husbandry industries have led to the development of antibiotic-resistant strains of microorganism. This occurs because of the increased accumulation of drugs in the body. The commonly used antibiotic drugs thus become ineffective against the microbes, leading to aggravation of the disease in the body. The development of multidrug-resistant variants is acting as a challenge to the market growth, as the drugs available in the market do not show any efficacy in the treatment of these infections, thus decreasing the acceptance of these antibiotics.

This global antibiotics market analysis report also provides detailed information on other upcoming trends and challenges that will have a far-reaching effect on the market growth. The actionable insights on the trends and challenges will help companies evaluate and develop growth strategies for 2020-2024.

COVID Impact and Recovery Analysis

In 2020, the outbreak of COVID-19 compelled governments of various countries to impose lockdowns in the region for several months. This affected the business and economic activities in countries like India, Pakistan, and Bangladesh. Although the pharmaceutical industry, inclusive of antibiotics, operated with limited capacity during this period under the safety guidelines laid down by the governments in this region, the imposition of lockdowns disrupted the supply chains of raw materials used for manufacturing antibiotics. This impacted the growth of the market to a certain extent. However, growing concern for health diseases among the people is expected to drive the growth of the market in the region during the forecast period.

The antibiotics market share growth by the broad-spectrum antibiotics segment will be significant during the forecast period. Broad-spectrum antibiotics are agents that are effective against a wide range of microorganisms, including Gram-positive and Gram-negative agents. These agents can be used in cases where bacteria do not respond to narrow-spectrum drugs, in cases of serious illness where the infecting agent is not identified, or in cases where multiple bacteria are resulting in the infection. However, the increased use of these agents leads to the development of resistance. Such factors will increase the market in focus during the forecast period.
