Antibacterial Drugs Market – Growth, Trends and Forecasts (2017 – 2025) – Pharmaceuticals and Healthcare Industry


Antibacterial drugs are antibiotics that are used to kill or inhibit the bacterial growth preventing bacterial infections. The secondary product secreted by the single organism is employed in preventing the growth of other microorganism often termed as antibiotic. Antibiotics are chemically relevant and grouped into classes. Despite drugs within same class have similar structural and functional correspondence they often differ in their spectra and pharmacological activity. Antibacterial drugs suppress the growth or might eventually destroy them using various mechanism such as inhibition of cell wall synthesis, interference with protein synthesis and nucleic acid metabolism, increasing cell membrane permeability and interrupting other metabolic process. According to drug disease prevention and control every year near about 2 million people acquires bacterial infections that resistant to drugs.


Market Growth Factors

Unregulated or over prescription of antibacterial drugs has resulted into increased bacterial resistance towards conventional antibiotics. Genetic mutation is another major reason for bacteria to develop resistance against antibiotics which in turn demands for development of next-generation antibiotic having broad spectrum agent that will act against multi-strain bacteria. Growing geriatric population, increased prevalence of infectious disease, surge in demand for efficient and cost effective antibacterial drugs are some another key driving factors leading the antibacterial drugs market growth.
