This Kalorama Information report – The World Market for Anti-Infectives - focuses on three key segments of treatment:
The report covers both currently marketed and late stage development products. Revenues for each segment were generated using dollar and unit sales for each product.
A novel approach in this report is that it provides revenue by product type but also the 'market' for treatments by type of infection, enabling marketers to research the best markets where a variety of products may be implemented.
The report includes statistical information for infections by type worldwide, with special emphasis on the U.S. and Europe. The market segments provide an overview, description of products on the market, description of products in development, market estimates and forecasts, and competitive analysis of leading providers.
The area of anti-infectives represents an exciting frontier for development of potential life-saving products. However, there are a number of issues and trends that have a direct influence on this market and manufacturers' ability to successfully operate in the market. The issues and trends affecting this market include:
All market data pertains to the world market at the manufacturers’ level. The base year for data was 2011. Historical data was provided for the years 2007 through 2010, with forecast data provided for 2012 through 2015. Compound annual growth rates (CAGRs) are provided for the 2007-2011, 2011-2015 and 2007-2015 periods for each industry segment covered. Competitive analysis is provided for the years 2007 through 2011 with a special focus on 2011. The forecasted market analysis for 2011-2015 was based on probability of approval and sales of products in late stage development, future trends in current product demand, generic penetration, product marketing, and relevant demographic trends.
Companies profiled in this report include:
With combined sales from the top HIV treatment on the market and several other drugs, Gilead Sciences leads the antiviral market, according to healthcare market research publisher Kalorama Information, closely followed by Bristol-Myers Squibb, Roche and Merck. Led by growth in antivirals, the market for all anti-infectives reached $53 billion in 2011, according to Kalorama Information's new report, World Market for Anti-Infectives (Antifungals, Antibacterials and Antivirals).
Atripla is the company's newest antiviral product, launched in July 2006, and it's the leading treatment for HIV. It is a nucleoside analog, part of a highly active antiretroviral therapy (HAART) regimen or "cocktail" that under best conditions can reduce the presence of HIV RNA in the patient's plasma to undetectable levels, thus prolonging survival. Kalorama estimated the product's sales to be $3.2 billion in 2011. Truvada, Viread, Hepsera are the company's other antiviral drugs. However, the report finds this is a highly competitive market and other brands are competing for market leadership.
"Gilead Sciences will likely remain strong in the market, but other companies are gaining," said Melissa Elder, the report's author. "Baraclude, for instance, has quadrupled in revenues in the past four years."
Bristol-Myers Squibb holds second place in the antiviral drug market, according to Kalorama Information. The company's Baraclude nucleoside analog has grown from $257 million in sales in 2007 to $1.1 billion today. The company's other leading antiviral drugs are Sustiva and Reyataz. Roche holds the third market position overall; the company's key antivirals include Pegasys, Valcyte, and Tamiflu.
GlaxoSmithKline alone accounted for 25% of the antiviral market in 2009, but has since declined due to patent expirations on key products. The company is not inactive, however. In November 2009, GlaxoSmithKline and Pfizer launched ViiV Healthcare, a new company focusing on HIV treatment that combines the strength of both companies' product and development pipelines in the HIV treatment area. For 2011, the new company accounted for one tenth of the antiviral drug market, according to Kalorama.
Of all the anti-infective drug markets that Kalorama has researched in its report, antivirals presented the most growth and competitive activity. This trend is expected to continue for 2011 with half year sales for key products already showing similar increases. Kalorama's report, World Market for Anti-Infectives (Antifungals, Antibacterials and Antivirals), contains more segment market estimates, estimates for revenues by infection treated, and profiles of key companies in the market.
