Antibacterial Drugs: A Global Strategic Business Report

Antibacterials treat an array of bacterial infections that range from minor to life threatening problems. High market maturity, patent expiries, generic drug penetration, and shortened product lifecycle due to bacterial drug resistance characterize the global market for antibacterial drugs. Patent expiries of several leading drugs in recent years have commoditized the market. In order to remain competitive, many players are extensively engaged in the development of anti-MRSA treatment, which can be used along with conventional antibacterials.

Asia-Pacific dominates the world anti-bacterial drugs market as stated by the new market research report on Anti-bacterial drugs. The region is forecast to also remain the fastest growing market in the coming years. Cephalosporins represents the largest segment in the global anti-bacterial drugs market. Macrolides is expected to be the fastest growing segment, driven by immunomodulatory effects and expanded indications.
