Blastomycosis Market Research, 2031

The global blastomycosis market size was valued at $177.2 million in 2021 and is projected to reach $257.7 million by 2031, growing at a CAGR of 3.8% from 2022 to 2031. Blastomycosis is a fungal infection caused by the organism Blastomyces dermatitidis. Blastomyces dermatitidis grows in wood and soil. When inhaled, the spores of Blastomyces enter into the body through the air, primarily affecting the lungs and causing pneumonia. After that, fungi spread to other body parts through the bloodstream. Blastomycosis can affect any host, however, it is more severe in people with impaired immune systems. The two most severe side effects of blastomycosis are central nervous system involvement and acute respiratory distress syndrome.

Blastomycosis Market

Drugs such as azole, allylamines, echinocandins, and polyenes are used for the treatment of blastomycosis. These drugs are used in the form of tablets, ointment, powder, and liquid as per the status of blastomycosis disease and the condition of blastomycosis patients. The blastomycosis market size has witnessed growth, owing to a rise in the prevalence of fungal infection, an increase in immunological diseases such as human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome (AIDS), tuberculosis, pneumonia, a rise in a number of hematological cancers, and surge in demand for amphotericin B therapy. Hence, all such factors boost the growth of the blastomycosis market share.

For instance, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, blastomycosis is an opportunistic infection that happens when a person’s immune system is weakened. These illnesses can be caused by bacteria, viruses, or fungi. Many fungal infections are opportunistic infections. For instance, according to the World Health Organization (WHO), in 2020, Africa displays a higher prevalence of HIV, with an estimated average of 3.9% (anywhere from 3.3-4.5%) of the population living with HIV. According to WHO, 7,800,000 HIV cases were reported in 2020. Therefore, such a rise in immunological diseases has propelled the growth of the blastomycosis market. In addition, the rise in the use of combination therapy of anti-fungal drugs for reducing the emergence of drug-resistant blastomycosis fungal infection, and prevention from relapse of fungal infection drive the growth of the blastomycosis market.

For instance, according to the review article “Pharmacology and Pharmacodynamics of Antifungal Agents” published in January 2020, amphotericin B and flucytosine have both been shown to have a safe and higher potency effect against fungal infection.

Moreover, a rise in diagnostic procedures such as biopsies to detect fungal infection, an increase in bone marrow & organ transplantation procedures, a surge in the trend of camping in forests, and favorable government funds to combat antifungal diseases boost the growth of the blastomycosis market. However, unfavorable reimbursements as well as complications such as growth in population with antifungal drug resistance, the presence of counterfeit drugs, and side effects of blastomycosis drugs are expected to hamper the market growth. On the contrary, unmet medical demands in developing countries and lucrative opportunities in emerging economies are expected to create immense opportunities for blastomycosis manufacturers worldwide in the future.

In addition, technological advancements; the launch of various products, and strategies among key players such as acquisition, collaboration, and agreement drive the growth of the blastomycosis market. For instance, in June 2021, Celon Laboratories Pvt. Ltd. announced the launch of AM FIGHT, an amphotericin B emulsion, used in the treatment of fungal infection. The emulsion-based formulation is an ideal alternative to Liposomal Amphotericin B to combat the Black Fungus. The launch of AM FIGHT helped the company to strengthen its anti-fungal product portfolio. This type of product launch boosts the growth of the blastomycosis market

Analyst Review

This section provides opinions of top level CXOs in the blastomycosis market. The blastomycosis market has witnessed growth, owing to high prevalence of fungal infection, improved diagnostics, and availability of new antifungals, which have revolutionized the field of medical mycology.

Moreover, the continuous R&D in the vaccines and antibody-based immunotherapy provides a steady growth to the pharmaceutical sector. In this regard, many key players have developed novel antifungal therapeutics that provide relief from varied antifungal infections. Dermal infections occur in high number and hence with advertisements and 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 blastomycosis successfully. Many antifungal drugs were outdated or of obsolete technology and patents were expired. However, increase in need for new, highly effective, and superior resistance anti-fungal technologies is the key factor that drives the market growth.

North America is expected to witness highest growth, in terms of revenue, owing to increase in cases of fungal infection, robust healthcare infrastructure, presence of key players, and in rise healthcare expenditure. However, LAMEA is anticipated to witness notable growth, owing to increase in awareness regarding use of combination of drugs against blastomycosis, unmet medical demands, and initiatives by government & non-governmental organization (NGO)s to promote awareness regarding use of anti-fungal medicine for the treatment of blastomycosis and increase in public–private investments in the healthcare sector.
