The Advancements and Impact of Antibiotics: Technologies and Global Markets

Jul 1,2023 | Pharmaceutical

Antibiotics, also known as anti-bacterial, are used to treat or prevent some types of bacterial infection. They work by killing the bacteria or by making it hard for the bacteria to grow and multiply.

Growth in the Antibiotics Market is mainly driven by the growth of the ageing population, rising technical advancements and increasing awareness of infectious diseases in the global platform. Also, growing awareness, as well as investments in the development of new antibiotics in the market, is pushing the research and development as well as clinical trials in the world.

Antibiotics are available in different forms like pills, capsules, syrups or injections. The increasing investments in research and development of new antibiotic drugs, increasing growth in the incidences of infection and chronic diseases and constant support from the governments for the development of antibacterial drugs have been driving the global market across the forecast period. There have been continuous efforts of pharmaceutical companies in development of new antibiotics which are more susceptible in nature.

With the outbreak of the virus, as much as 95% of the people were prescribed antibiotics for their treatment. These included azithromycin, hydroxychloroquine (a chloroquine derivative of antimalarial drug) among others which proved successful for the treatment of virus during uncertain times. Many people avoided staying in the hospitals for a longer duration during the pandemic, thus prescribing antibiotics seemed the only way out. With more patients getting prescribed antibiotics, there was an increase in the demand for the same and the antibiotics market faced supply chain shortages.

The Antibiotics: Technologies and Global Markets business study offered on Bharatbook is focused on newer drugs and innovations in chemical compounds, recently launched or in development. Specifically excluded from the scope of research are vector or mosquito control, drugs used for symptomatic treatment and not for the elimination of the virus from the host and details on manufacturers and suppliers of non-branded generics.
