Ampicillin Market Overview

Ampicillin market size is forecast to reach US$352.3 million by 2027, after growing at a CAGR of 2.3% during 2022-2027. Penicillin antibiotic drug named ampicillin is used mainly to treat endocarditis, pneumonia, intestines, gonorrhea, respiratory tract, stomach, meningitis, bladder infections, salmonellosis, and other infections. Ampicillin is a sub-category drug under aminopenicillins. Aminopenicillins inhibit the synthesis of the bacterial cell wall and hence successfully kills the bacteria. An increase in the incidence of these infectious diseases among individuals is anticipated to drive the demand for ampicillin drugs among individuals in the forecast period. Since ampicillin is also used to treat secondary bacterial infections caused by COVID-19, the ampicillin market is expected to rise. Increasing investments in the healthcare sector are further anticipated to create opportunities for the growth of the ampicillin industry.

Key Takeaways

  • In 2020, the North American region was dominant because of the increasing need for ampicillin with surging gonorrhea cases. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, in 2019, the overall rate of reported gonorrhea increased by 5.7% in the U.S.
  • An increase in the incidence of infectious diseases such as pneumonia, gonorrhea, endocarditis, syphilis, salmonellosis, and others, among individuals, is anticipated to drive the demand for ampicillin drugs in the forecast period.
  • Investments are being made to modernize healthcare infrastructure by the government of developing countries, which is expected to drive the market for ampicillin drugs, globally.
  • Harmful side effects such as nausea, diarrhea, vomiting, and others, caused by the intake of ampicillin can act as the key hindrance in the growth of the ampicillin drug market over the projected period.

Ampicillin sodium for injection held the largest share in the ampicillin drug market. The dosage of ampicillin sodium for injection is given in different amounts such as in grams, milligrams, milliliters, and is also dependent upon the age and body weight of an individual. Ampicillin sodium for injection is increasingly being used only to treat infections that are strongly suspected to be caused by bacteria, to lessen the production of drug-resistant bacteria. With the rise in such bacterial infections every year ampicillin sodium injection consumption is anticipated to rise, driving the growth of the market.

Pneumonia held the largest share by indication in the ampicillin market in 2020. According to UNICEF (United Nations Children’s Emergency Fund), there are 1400 cases of pneumonia per 100,000 children each year. Also, coronavirus has played a major role in the spread of infections such as pneumonia in the year 2020. According to Health, Pharma & Medtech, in the U.S. as of July 2021, the number of deaths due to pneumonia was 543,773 and that with covid positive pneumonia was 296,282. In addition, according to CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention), death rates due to pneumonia increase with age in adults. Thus, pneumonia played a major role in driving the ampicillin market growth. With the increasing pneumonia cases, it is further anticipated that the market for ampicillin would also rise in the forecast period.

The kid's sector held the largest share in the ampicillin market in 2020 and it is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 3.1% in the forecast period (2022-2027). Lack of availability of clean water and hygiene and inadequate infection prevention and control triggers the spread of bacteria among individuals. According to United Nations Children’s Emergency Fund, every 39 seconds, pneumonia causes a child's death. Pneumonia is more fatal to children than any other infectious disease, taking the lives of over 800,000 children, including over 153,000 newborns. As per the report on “Pneumonia and Diarrhea Progress Report 2020”, in India, 233,240 deaths occurred due to pneumonia and diarrhea in children under the age of five, and 24,254 deaths took place in China. Also, the group B streptococcal infection and pneumonia found in newborns are treated by ampicillin. Thus, the rising usage of ampicillin to treat bacterial diseases among kids will drive market growth in the forecast period.

The oral segment held the largest share in the ampicillin market in 2020. Ampicillin is available in the form of a capsule and a suspension to be taken orally. It is the recommended route of administration in kids due to its non-invasiveness and low risk of pain. Antibiotics taken orally for both adults and kids are less expensive and also available with or without prescription. Intake of ampicillin drug orally even reduces the side effects caused by the intravenous route, such as nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea. Acid hydrolysis does not deactivate aminopenicillins, thus, administration of ampicillin through the oral route is possible. The rapidly rising consumption of ampicillin through the oral intake method will drive the growth of the market.

Online pharmacies held the largest share in the ampicillin market in 2020. Currently, due to COVID 19 outbreak, the world has gradually shifted towards digitalization. To follow the government-induced norms the need for buying drugs online rapidly increased in the year 2020. Also, to maintain social distancing the preference towards online pharmacies increased among individuals. Thus, the rising consumer’s preference towards online pharmacies in these tough times has raised the growth of the ampicillin market.

North America region dominated the ampicillin market with a share of 38% in 2020 and is projected to dominate the market during the forecast period (2022-2027). The increase in the incidence of sexually transmitted diseases such as syphilis and gonorrhea in the USA, Canada, and Mexico, has raised the demand for ampicillin in this region. In North America, the ampicillin market is supported by the growing organization sizes and increasing application area of ampicillin. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, in 2019, a total of 616,392 cases of gonorrhea were reported, in the United States. The demand for ampicillin antibiotics is anticipated to rise in the next few years with the increment in incidence and mortality rate of infectious diseases, including pneumonia, STDs, in North America. With favorable government support for raising awareness about infectious diseases among people and a rise in the number of manufacturers of antibiotics in these countries is predicted to boost the market of ampicillin drugs.
