Worldwide Oral Antibiotics Industry to 2027 - Featuring Mylan, Pfizer & Sanofi Among Others -

The "Oral Antibiotics Market, by Class, Application, Drug Origin, Spectrum of Activity and Drug Type: Global Opportunity Analysis and Industry Forecast, 2020-2027" report has been added to's offering.

The global oral antibiotics market generated $18,365.80 million in 2018, and is projected to reach $23,306.10 million by 2027, growing at a CAGR of 2.7% from 2019 to 2027.

Antibiotic is an antimicrobial substance or a compound that fights against bacterial infections and sometimes with protozoan infections, but not viral infections. These are medications that either stop bacteria from growing or kill bacteria directly, referred as bacteriostatic and bactericidal antibiotics, respectively. There are several types of antibiotics easily available at drug stores and in hospitals with a prescription or without a prescription in most of countries. Antibiotics are mostly used during transplants, dialysis, suppressed immune system, and joint replacement.

There is an increase in demand for antibiotics, owing to an increased consumption in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs) and a rise in the prevalence of infectious diseases. In addition, development of novel approaches for new antibiotics to treat bacterial infections and large number of clinical trials further drive market growth. However, development of antibiotic resistance, driven by misuse of antibiotics and time taken for regulatory approvals are projected to impede market growth. On the contrary, discovery of advanced prospect molecules and novel combination therapies to treat antibiotic-resistant microbial infections are expected to offer significant profitable opportunities for the market players.

The global oral antibiotics market is segmented on the basis of class, application drug origin, spectrum of activity, application, and region. On the basis of class, the market is classified into beta lactam & beta lactamase inhibitors, quinolones, macrolides, and others. Beta lactam & beta lactamase inhibitors is further segmented into Penicillin, Cephalosporin, and others. By application, the market is divided into community- respiratory tract infections (CARTIS), urinary acquired tract infections (UTIS), dental, and others. Depending on drug origin, it is categorized into natural, semisynthetic, and synthetic.
