HIV Drugs Market Research, 2032

The global HIV drugs market Size was valued at $32.8 billion in 2022, and is projected to reach $51.1 billion by 2032, growing at a CAGR of 4.5% from 2023 to 2032. The growth of the HIV drugs market share is driven by the rise in demand of HIV drugs, increase in initiatives taken by various government associations to raise awareness about diagnosis and management of HIV and rise in cases of HIV. For instance, according to the Joint United Nations Program on HIV and AIDS (UNAIDS), 39 million [33.1 million–45.7 million] people globally were living with HIV in 2022. As per the same source, 1.3 million [1 million–1.7 million] people became newly infected with HIV in 2022. And 630,000 [480 000–880 000] people died from AIDS-related illnesses in 2022.

HIV Drugs Market

Key Takeaways:

  • The multi-class combination drugs segment held the largest share in the HIV drugs market in 2022.
  • The hospital pharmacies dominated the market in 2022.
  • North America was the major shareholder in 2022. However, Asia-Pacific is expected to witness the highest CAGR during the forecast period.

Human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) is a chronic and life-threatening disease, which can be transferred from one person to another through blood-to-blood and sexual contact. It is a virus, which attacks immune cells known as CD-4 cells, making the body susceptible to infections and other diseases. Over the years, the rise in prevalence of HIV disease worldwide has positively influenced the demand for HIV drugs. HIV drugs help to prevent the multiplication of HIV virus, thereby reducing the risk of its transmission.

Market Dynamics

The pharmaceutical industry continues to invest in research and development efforts to better understand the underlying mechanisms of HIV and develop innovative therapies. This includes exploring new drug targets, conducting clinical trials, and investigating combination therapies. Therefore, the rise in research and development in drug discovery drives the growth of HIV drugs market size during the forecast period. For instance, in February 2023, Merck & Co., Inc., known as MSD, outside of the U.S. and Canada, announced that the company has opened enrollment in its new Phase 3 clinical program with investigational once-daily islatravir 0.25 mg in combination with doravirine 100 mg (DOR/ISL) for the treatment of HIV-1 infection.

Furthermore, the rise in awareness about HIV leads to more individuals seeking testing and diagnosis. This results in the identification of previously undiagnosed cases, subsequently increasing the demand for HIV drugs to initiate treatment. Thus, the rise in awareness about HIV can significantly drive the growth of the HIV drugs market. For instance, the U.S. Agency for International Development and various associations across the globe have introduced many initiatives and education campaigns for community awareness to address HIV prevention, treatment, and care. 

The rise in funding for raising awareness and reducing the burden of HIV by various international programs and organizations drives the growth of HIV drugs market. Hence, such factors drive the growth of the HIV drugs therapeutics market.

Recession 2023 impact analysis on HIV Drugs Market

The recession can present challenges for the HIV drugs market, particularly for pharmaceutical companies engaged in R&D efforts. During economic downturns, funding constraints and reduced return on investment in pharma R&D may impede the progress of introducing new and innovative HIV drugs to the market. For instance, Deloitte's report in January 2023 showed that the projected return on investment in pharma R&D fell to 1.2%, the lowest in 13 years. In addition, the average cost of developing a new drug rose significantly, reaching $2.3 billion in 2022. This financial pressure may lead to slower development timelines and reduced focus on researching new drug for HIV and drug resistant HIV. 

Despite these challenges, the overall demand for therapeutic drugs, including HIV drugs, remains relatively stable during economic downturns due to their essential role in treating health conditions. Moreover, the prevalence of HIV infections contributes to sustained demand for therapeutic drugs, in the face of a recession and is expected to drive the HIV drugs market growth.
