Global Anti-tuberculosis Therapeutics Market - Segmented by Drug Class, End User, and Geography - Growth, Trends and Forecast (2018 - 2023)
The global anti-tuberculosis Therapeutics market is expected to register a CAGR of 6.0% during the forecast period, 2018 to 2023. North America dominates the market, due to growing awareness regarding tuberculosis among the people.
Rising Prevalence of Tuberculosis (TB)
Rising prevalence of tuberculosis, especially in developing countries, is the major driver for the growth of the global anti-tuberculosis Therapeutics market. According to World Health Organization (WHO), in 2016, 10.4 million new tuberculosis cases were reported. Around 1.7 million TB patients died from the disease (which includes 0.4 million among people with HIV). Over 95% of TB deaths occur in low- and middle-income countries. Growing prevalence of pedriatic tuberculosis and increasing incidence of multi-drug-resistant tuberculosis (MDR TB) and extensively drug-resistant (XDR) TB cases are further driving the growth of the global tuberculosis Therapeutics market.
Also, growing initiative from government organization regarding awareness of tuberculosis, a collaboration between academic and private players for novel antibiotics drug development is another factor driving the growth of the global anti-tuberculosis drugs market.
High Cost of TB Therapeutics and Lack of Insurance Coverage in Low-and Middle-income Countries
Tuberculosis (TB) treatment is done over a long period, and continuous medicine and monitoring is needed during the treatment. This results in overall high treatment costs. According to reseach, on an average, the total cost of TB treatment was equivalent to 58% (5%-306%) of the reported annual individual income, and 39% (4%-148%) of the reported household income. This financial burden varies between countries, owing to varying healthcare settings, TB care models, general health systems, and social protection schemes. The financial burden is on an average more for persons suffering from MDR-TB and for the poorest. However, most of the low- and-middle income countries, such as Asian and African countries, have limited insurance coverage. Thus, high ‘out-of-pocket’ treatment cost, coupled with adverse side effects of anti-tuberculosis drugs, is expected to limit this market, as a large share of the population will not be able to afford the treatment. Factors, such as adverse side effects of anti-tuberculosis drugs, also hinder the market.
Asia-Pacific to Show High Growth Rate
North America dominates the global anti-tuberculosis Therapeutics market, owing to the presence of well-established market players, and raising awareness regarding tuberculosis. Asia-Pacific is expected to grow tremendously during the forecast period, owing to factors, such as high prevalence of tuberculosis and growing government initiative to create awareness regarding tuberculosis.
