Increasing Number of Anti-fungal Drugs as Over-The-Counter (OTC)
With rising popularity of over-the-counter (OTC) drugs, many patients prefer them to obtaining a prescription from a healthcare professional. Numerous common and harmless fungal infections are left untreated by patients, owing to medical costs and logistical constraints. These have directly contributed to the rise in the usage of OTC drugs, as these infections can be treated by OTC drugs, owing to their ease of availability.
Increasing awareness about myriad fungal infections and increasing government and corporate funding are some other drivers of the market.
Presence of Generics and Government Regulations in the Pharmaceutical Industry
Although there is an increase in the sales of anti-fungal generic drugs, the market value of these drugs has decreased, as the price of generics is almost 20 to 50% of the branded drugs. To meet the market value, the sales of generics must be increased by at least four times to that of branded drugs. Even with the increasing volume of generic anti-fungal drug sales, the overall market value of anti-fungal drugs has reduced.
Additionally, high penetration of conventional drugs used for treatment and allergic reaction to some types of anti-fungal drugs are also restraining the market growth.
