Market Overview

The anti-viral therapeutics market is expected to register a CAGR of 6.0%, over the forecast period, 2019 - 2024. North America dominates the market, due to the growing prevalence of hepatitis C and HIV infections, coupled with the presence of a huge patient pool suffering from virally infectious diseases.

  • In order to combat drug resistance, the combination of various anti-virals with different mechanisms of action is used. Combination antiviral therapy is the standard of care in HIV and hepatitis C virus infections, and it is likely to become increasingly used in other viral infections.
  • Anti-viral therapeutics are commercially available for diseases, like influenza, hepatitis C, chickenpox, papilloma, and AIDS, among others. Additionally, there is increasing adoption of nucleoside and nucleotide analogues as first-line anti-virals. Based on the current development pipeline, many small molecule-based anti-viral drugs (like interferons and other similar small protein analogues) are expected to receive its marketing approval.

Scope of the Report

The market for antiviral therapeutics has been considered according to the burden of the disease caused by viruses, at the global level. The anti-viral therapeutics market is essentially split into anti-viral drug markets for herpes, hepatitis, HIV, and influenza, among other diseases. The market has also been segmented on the basis of distribution channels into hospital pharmacy, independent pharmacy, and online drug stores.

Key Market Trends

On the basis of Drug Type, HIV Antiviral Drugs Mainly Boost the Global Market

HIV is a major global public health issue. According to the 2018 UNAIDS data, in 2017 approximately 37 million people were living with HIV. The global HIV prevalence among adults was estimated to be 0.8%. The vast majority of people living with HIV are located in low and middle-income countries, with an estimated 66% living in sub-Saharan Africa. However, the majority of HIV anti-viral consumption was exhibited in the North America region. Over the forecast period, the use of anti-virals in African countries is expected to increase multi-fold and propel the market growth.

North America Region Dominated the Market

North America dominated the anti-viral therapeutics market, owing to the presence of well-established market players, and also due to the growing prevalence of HIV and hepatitis C infections. Asia-Pacific is expected to grow tremendously, during the forecast period owing to factors, such as the high prevalence of HIV infection, growing awareness regarding HIV infection, and increasing collaboration between public and private sectors.

The North American market is primarily driven by factors, such as the increasing occurrence of infectious disease, increasing geriatric population base, and growing healthcare awareness coupled with increasing healthcare expenditure in the region. However, there are limitations to market growth in the region, which include generic erosion and patent expiration of anti-viral drugs.
