Bacterial conjunctivitis is a contagious eye infection in which the conjunctiva of one or both the eyes are infected by bacteria such as Staphylococci, Gonococci, Chlamydia, and Streptococci. The infection caused by Chlamydia trachomatis and Neisseria gonorrhea species are extremely severe. However, there are many antibiotics that help in curing these conditions, thus ensuring quicker clearance of the indications of infection. It has been reported that nearly 5 million bacterial conjunctivitis cases are registered every year. There are many antibiotics currently used for the treatment, which include Besivance, Zymaxid, Maxitrol, and AzaSite. These antibiotics can be administered via oral, transdermal, and otic.

Although, most of the bacterial conjunctivitis are self-limiting, yet topical antibiotics are suggested to cut the duration of the disease and avoid the spreading of infection. A wide range of antibiotics are generally used as a primary treatment option for bacterial conjunctivitis. Topical antibiotics are suggested to deliver the highest dose of the drug straight to the infection site, more than what is usually achieved by oral and other routes. Consequently, the broad spectrum of antibiotic of a single drug is improved.


Market Analysis: The “Global Bacterial Conjunctivitis Drugs Market” is estimated to witness a CAGR of  2.1% during the forecast period 2018–2024. The bacterial conjunctivitis drugs market is analyzed based on two segments – drug class and regions.
Regional Analysis: The regions covered in the report are North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, and Rest of the World (RoW). North America accounts for the largest share of the bacterial conjunctivitis market, followed by Europe, Asia Pacific, and Rest of the World. More than 40% of the market is occupied by North America, with the US being the major contributor to the market growth.

Drug Class Analysis: Based on drug classes, the market is segmented into fluoroquinolones, aminoglycosides, macrolides, and others. Fluoroquinolones have a dominant market share for bacterial conjunctivitis. However, this drug class is likely to reduce its market share by 7.2% by the end of 2024 due to weak research pipeline. The highest growth rate is witnessed by aminoglycosides, followed by macrolides. However, the loss of patent of blockbuster drugs, such as Moxeza, Besivance, Vigamox, and Zymaxid, has hampered the growth of the market.

Competitive Analysis: Many blockbuster drugs are likely to lose their patents in the market, which in turn, has increased the advent of generic drugs with similar efficacy and less cost.  This patent expiry is expected to show a negative impact on the company revenue and its market position. Other strategies used by the market players are acquisitions.

Benefits: The report provides complete details about the usage and adoption rate of bacterial conjunctivitis drugs in various regions. With that, key stakeholders can know about the major trends, drivers, investments, and vertical player’s initiatives. Moreover, the report provides details about the major challenges that are going to impact on the market growth.
