Antifungal drugs are used to treat fungal infections, which occur due to unclean, humid, and unhygienic environments. These infections are caused by organisms, which live by feeding on living tissue and are commonly known as dermatophytes that are responsible for the infection of hair, skin and nail as they can utilize keratin. In addition, fungal infections can cause harm to superficial (skin, mouth, and vagina) and systemic parts of the body (lungs, bones, brain, eyes, and others) Some of the common fungal infections such as athlete’s foot, fungal meningitis, ringworm and other infections can be treated by antifungal drugs that work by killing of the fungal cell breaking the contents of the cell. These cells eventually leak out and results in the death of the cell, which also prevents the cell to grow further, thus preventing the infection. The global antifungal drugs market was valued at $13,719 million in 2016, and is expected to reach at $17,718 million by 2023, registering a CAGR of 3.7% from 2017 to 2023.
There are various modes of anti-fungal drug delivery that increases adoption of this products leading to high growth of this market. In addition, absorption of drugs works differently for each individual. Hence, advancement in drug delivery technology is expected to boost the growth of the global antifungal drug market. Further, growing incidence and prevalence rate of infectious diseases and growth in population of immunocompromised (prone to infectious diseases) individuals enhance the growth of this market. Furthermore, presence of alternative therapies and slow growth of medical infrastructure in emerging economies, such as China and India, hinder the market growth during the forecast period.
The global antifungal drugs market is segmented based on drug type, therapeutic indications, infection type, and geography. Based on drug type, the market is divided into echinocandins, azoles, polyenes, allylamines, and other drugs. Further, based on therapeutic indications, it is classified into aspergillosis, dermatophytosis, candidiasis, others. Based on infection type, the market is bifurcated into superficial and systemic antifungals.
Geographically, it is analyzed across North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and LAMEA. North America accounted for the highest market share in 2016, and is expected to maintain the dominance throughout the forecast period. This is attributed to the increase in prevalence of fungal infections and growth in development of antifungal biopharmaceuticals, However, Asia-Pacific is expected to emerge as a lucrative area with maximum growth potential, due to the improvement in healthcare facilities, available disposable income, and rapid development of economic conditions.

Gene synthesis refers to chemically synthesizing a strand of DNA base-by-base. Unlike DNA replication that occurs in cells or by Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR), gene synthesis does not require a template strand. Rather, gene synthesis involves the step-wise addition of nucleotides to a single-stranded molecule, which then serves as a ...
