Antibiotic Resistance Market To Advance At CAGR Of 5.6% By 2025

Posted by rahul nikade on August 4th, 2022

Antibiotic Resistance Industry Overview

The global antibiotic resistance market size is estimated to reach USD 12.07 billion by 2025. According to a new report by Grand View Research, Inc., it is anticipated to post a CAGR of 5.6% during the forecast period. Rising burden of antibiotic-resistant infections and emergence of multi-drug resistant pathogens has been driving the market.

Antibiotic Resistance Market Segmentation

Grand View Research has segmented the global antibiotic resistance market on the basis of disease, pathogen type, drug class, and region:

Based on the Disease Insights, the market is segmented into Complicated Urinary Tract Infection (cUTI), Complicated Intra-Abdominal Infections (cIAI), Blood Stream Infections (BSI), Clostridium difficile infections (CDI), Acute Bacterial Skin and Skin Structure Infections (ABSSSI), Hospital Acquired Bacterial Pneumonia/Ventilator (HABP/VABP)   , Community Acquired Bacterial Pneumonia (CABP).

  • The market has been categorized into cUTI, cIAI, BSI, CDI, ABSSSI, HABP/VABP, and CABP. cUTI represented the largest segment in the market in 2017 owing to high overall treatment cost and limited treatment alternatives for Gram-negative pathogens, which account for majority of infection cases.
  • Antibiotic-resistant Gram-positive bacteria account for a larger number of infections by volume. However, due to availability of multiple treatment options including branded and generics drugs, the overall cost of therapy remains lower when compared with Gram-negative infections.
  • Among gram-positive infections, MRSA accounted for the highest market share, being the primary causative pathogen for growing ABSSSI burden across the globe. The ABSSSI segment is projected to command a sizeable share in the antibiotic resistance market throughout the forecast period.

Based on the Pathogen Insights, the market is segmented into Acinetobacter baumannii (Carbapenem-Resistant), Pseudomonas aeruginosa (Carbapenem-Resistant), Staphylococcus Aureus, E. coli/K. pneumoniae (Carbapenem-Resistant), Streptococcus pneumoniae (Penicillin-Non-Susceptible), Clostridium difficile (Cephalosporin-Resistant, Tetracycline-Resistant), Enterococcus faecium (Vancomycin-Resistant), Haemophilus Influenzae (Ampicillin-Resistant).

  • Infections due to K. pneumoniae pathogens that are carbapenem-resistant and ESBL-producing held the largest share in 2017. These infections pose treatment challenges for physicians due to high resistance to current treatment alternatives.
  • These infections although fewer in terms of number of cases in comparison to Gram positive pathogens, they impose a high cost burden as physicians are increasingly shifting towards novel antibiotics such as Allergan’s Avycaz and Melinta Therapeutics’ Vabomere. CDI, on the other hand, is anticipated to register the highest CAGR during the forecast period.

Based on the Drug Class Insights, the market is segmented into Oxazolidinones, Lipoglycopeptides, Tetracyclines, Cephalosporins, Combination, Others.

  • Lipoglycopeptides are likely to command 17.0% of the overall market revenue by 2025.
  • The combination therapies segment, which comprises fixed dose combinations of beta lactams and beta lactamase inhibitors, is poised to experience the highest growth during the forecast period. High use of these therapies for gram negative infections that have limited treatment options is contributing to the growth of the segment.
