Rising Prevalence of HIV Infection
According to the World Health Organization (WHO), it is estimated that in 2015, nearly 36.7 million individuals had HIV. It has been identified that most of this prevalence is in low and middle-income countries. According to UNAIDS in 2016, around 1.8 million people with new HIV infection were reported worldwide. In 2017, 20.9 million people were accessing antiretroviral therapy, globally. The huge patient pool indicates high demand for anti-viral drugs, which will likely drive the market growth during the forecast period.
Other factors that drive the market include increasing initiatives by public and private companies, advancements in molecular biology promoting drug development, and a strong pipeline for antiviral drugs.
Therapeutics Going Off-patent
Therapeutics losing patent exclusivity affects the market largely. Along with the innovator company, there are many regional/local players in the market. Due to this, the prices of the Therapeutics come down rapidly and the overall market gets affected. In the year 2016 itself, quite a few HIV Therapeutics had gone off-patent. Epzicom, Trizivir, Norvir, and Kaletra lost patent exclusivity in 2016. Abbott’s Kaletra has more than 8% share in the HIV anti-virals market. This will greatly affect the market for anti-viral drugs. The high cost of anti-viral drug treatment also hinders the growth of the market.
North America to Dominate the Market
North America dominates the global anti-viral Therapeutics market owing to the presence of well-established market players, and growing prevalence of HIV and Hepatitis C infections. Asia-Pacific is expected to grow tremendously during the forecast period owing to factors, such as high prevalence of HIV infection, growing awareness regarding HIV infection, and increasing collaboration between public and private sectors to provide affordable treatment to the low and middle-income countries.
