Global Antifungal Drugs Market Research Report Report 2021 Featuring Major Players - Dr. Reddy's Laboratories, Merck & Co, Sanofi, Pfizer, Bayer and Perrigo Co


Dublin, Nov. 10, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Antifungal Drugs: Technologies and Global Markets 2021-2026" report has been added to's offering.

The global market for antifungal drugs, as defined in the market segmentation described and divided into prescription and over-the-counter (OTC) medications, was valued at $13.9 billion in 2020.

The value of the global market increased to an estimated $14.5 billion by 2021 and by the end of the forecast period is predicted to reach $17.9 billion, growing at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 4.4%.

This report covers approved human therapeutics, with a heavy focus on therapeutics in early development. In the last five years, there has been a decrease in the number of patent applications filed in this area. Between 1990 and 1999, there were six U.S. patents granted - evidence of the evolution of drug resistance and an increased mortality rate.

These new molecular and biological entities are from traditional pharmaceutical sources, naturally derived synthetic chemicals and biological sources, as well as the "herbal natural folk medicine" marketplace. If an approved or well-known medicine is being studied in combination with another molecular entity, it is considered a new therapy and often has been included for review. New drug and patent applications are presented as the study focuses on new methods of drug administration, drug clinical trials, and discovery and development.

It should be noted that there is a strong emphasis on early research due to the critical need for new and more effective medicines; hence, the publisher is including a section of medicines intended for human utilization that are in clinical testing, as well as information on new and novel in vitro therapies. More than 98% of medicines at the preclinical level are terminated prior to their utilization in humans, and the research in this area is vast.

The report is limiting this research to therapies that depict a positive result or that represent a rare and novel approach worthy of further review from R&D groups.

The aim of this report is to initially conduct a review of the antifungal drugs currently available; explore the issues facing the use of antifungal drugs; and review some of the latest developments of new and innovative antifungal drugs, their technologies, and their intended clinical applications.

The key objective is also to conduct and provide an analysis of the market value, growth rates, market shares and market development, and examine the market dynamics and market factors influencing the growth and development of this market.

This report also looks at the challenges and potential threats facing the industry and the factors influencing the market shares of the major market suppliers as well as smaller manufacturers in local markets.
