COVID-19 is an infectious disease that originated in Hubei province of the Wuhan city in China in late December. This highly contagious disease, caused by a virus, is a severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2)that  is transmitted from one person to another. Since the outbreak in December 2019, the disease has spread to almost 213 countries around the globe with the World Health Organization declaring it a pandemic on March 11, 2020.

Pharmaceutical and biotech companies together with governments all across the  globe are working to address the COVID-19 outbreak, from supporting the development of vaccines to planning for medicine supply chain challenges. Currently, around 115 vaccine candidates and 155 molecules are in the R&D pipeline. Moreover, commonly used drugs such as Hydroxychloroquine have witnessed a dramatic surge in demand for the management of COVID-19. Such high demand for these drugs has presented huge opportunities for manufacturers of COVID-19 management drugs, as many developed countries are facing shortage of these drugs. Thus, the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industry is expected to witness a significant growth in the future owing to the demand for vaccine and treatment drugs for COVID-19. This in turn is expected to have a significant impact on the glutethimide market.
