Growth of the global antifungal market is majorly driven by rise in incidences of fungal and nosocomial infections. In addition, surge in initiatives by public and private organizations to spread awareness about myriad of fungal infections is expected to expand the antifungal drugs market. Moreover, growth in prevalence of fungal infections such as aspergillosis and candidiasis is one of the key factors that propel the growth of the antifungal market. Fungal infections, both systematic and superficial infections include infection of the skin, eye, and mouth. Antifungal drugs with fungicidal activity are mostly used to treat a wide array of diseases, such as fungal meningitis and ringworm caused by fungal agents. Thus, rise in cases of patients suffering from nosocomial infections and infectious diseases drive the antifungal drugs market growth. According to Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, around 46,000 new cases of invasive candidiasis, a prevalent bloodstream infection in the U.S. arise each year. In addition, according to article published in the National Center for Biotechnology Information in 2019, it is estimated that approximately 1 million cases of cryptococcosis are reported annually resulting in 625,000 deaths globally. Thus, rise in cases of infectious disease patients increase the growth of the market. Furthermore, upsurge in number of drug approvals provide lucrative opportunities for the expansion of the global anti-fungal drugs market during the forecast period.

The antifungal drugs market is segmented into Drug Class, Infection Type, Therapeutic Indications and Dosage Forms. By drug type, it is divided into echinocandins, azoles, polyenes, allylamines, and other drugs. Further, by therapeutic indication, it is classified into aspergillosis, dermatophytosis, candidiasis, and others. By infection type, the market is bifurcated into superficial and systemic antifungals. By dosage form, the market is segmented into oral, topical and others.                                                  

Region wise, the antifungal drugs industry is analyzed across North America (the U.S., Canada, and Mexico), Europe (Germany, France, the UK, Italy, Spain, and rest of Europe), Asia-Pacific (Japan, China, Australia, India, South Korea, and rest of Asia-Pacific), and LAMEA(Brazil, Saudi Arabia, South Africa, and rest of LAMEA).

Analyst Review

In accordance to several interviews conducted, it is stated that since the past few decades, the improved diagnostics and availability of new anti-fungal drugs have revolutionized the field of medical mycology. Moreover, the continuous R&D on vaccines and antibody-based immunotherapy provide a steady growth to the pharmaceutical sector. In addition, high prevalence of fungal infection accelerates the growth of the antifungal drugs market. In this regard, many key players have developed novel antifungal therapeutics that provides relief from varied antifungal infections.

Dermal infections occur in high number and hence with advertisements &endorsements, many pharmaceutical companies promote several OTC drugs in the market to make public aware of the availability of treatments for dermal infections. These drugs are cost-effective and are available in various forms, such as powder, cream, solution, and others. As the topical antifungal drugs such as butenafine, clotrimazole, nitrate, hydrochloride, tolnaftate, and terbinafine are effective in the treatment of fungal skin infections, the coming years are expected to witness an exponential increase in the demand for antifungal medicines. The recent development of novel antifungal agents has significantly contributed to the treatment of fungal diseases successfully. Many antifungal drugs are outdated or of obsolete technology or their patents are expired. However, surgein need for new, highly effective, and superior resistant anti-fungal technologies drives the market growth.
