Anti-malarial drugs are medications used for the treatment and prevention of malaria infection. They are also known as anti-malarials. These drugs are used for routine intermittent treatment of specific groups in endemic regions. Anti-malarial drugs are also used for prevention of infection in individuals who travel or visit a malaria-endemic region. Efficacious antimalarial therapy not only reduces the morbidity and mortality of malaria, but also reduces the risk of resistance to antimalarial drugs.
The global anti-malarial drugs market is gradually developing due to the surge in prevalence rate of malaria globally. Favorable government regulations, development of multi-drug resistance (MDR), and increase in research, development, and innovation in terms of anti-malaria therapeutics is anticipated to supplement market growth. However, possible side effects of anti-malaria drugs such as anxiety, dizziness insomnia, and others impede the growth of this market.
The global antimalarial drug market is segmented on the basis of drug type, malaria type, mechanism of action, distribution channel, and geography. Based on drug type, it is divided into quinine, chloroquine, pyrimethamine, amodiaquine, proguanil, mefloquine, sulfonamide, artemisinin & derivatives, atovaquone, primaquine, halofantrine, doxycycline, and clindamycin. On the malaria type, it is classified into plasmodium falciparum, plasmodium vivax, plasmodium malariae and plasmodium ovale. By mechanism of action, it is bifurcated into resistance and prevention. Furthermore, by distribution channel the antimalarial drug market is categorized into hospital pharmacy, retail pharmacy, e-commerce, and others.
