E-Pharmacies Emerging as Full-fledged Distribution Channel for Antibacterial Drugs

The antibacterial drugs market is witnessing sluggish movement, with a relatively slim drug pipeline further dampening market prospects. However, conscientious efforts taken by the governments of numerous countries, especially in Europe and North America, are projected to lead to an upsurge in the development of branded drugs. For instance, the U.S. FDA created the CDER Antibacterial Drug Development Task Force to underpin the development of novel antibacterial drugs.

Also, e-pharmacies will be a full-fledged distribution channel in the future, which will enable next day/same day delivery, and help validate the credibility of prescriptions. E-retailers will need to conform to government regulations, which will further increase the reliance of patients on e-pharmacies. Given the rise of this new revenue stream, the antibacterial drugs market will register a revival, albeit at a slow pace. As per a recently published Fact.MR study, the antibacterial drugs market is expected to surge to ~US$ 51 Bn by the end of the year 2025.

β-lactam to Remain the Drug Class of Choice; Macrolides to Follow

There has been a marked uptake in the sales of β-lactam, as these are indicated for the prevention and treatment of bacterial infections. Continuous progression in the development of effective β-lactam is deemed as a primary growth indicator of this drug class. For example, initially, β-lactam drugs were active only against gram-positive bacteria. However, in recent times, these are showing resistance against gram-negative organisms as well, which is expected to further drive their popularity. Besides this, macrolides are fast-replacing quinolones drug class, and emerging as a relatively effective drug class, which will create significant commercial opportunities for this drug class in the antibacterial drugs market during the forecast period.

Low Returns on Investment on Branded Drugs Providing Edge to Generic Drugs

There are numerous dynamics that hold potential to derail the growth of the antibacterial drugs market, out of which, the low RoI potential of branded drugs is projected to adversely impact future investments. Discovery and development of antibacterial drugs have become scientifically complex and cost-intensive in nature. In addition, time-consuming approval processes further reflect on the shrinking sales prospects due to extended time-to-market. This is leading to a weak pipeline of antibacterial drugs, which is being further aggravated by numerous branded drugs that are nearing patent expirations. This, however, creates a highly conducive environment for the growth of regional and local players who vying for market share through the introduction of affordable generic drugs, which could further weaken the sales prospects of branded drugs.

Key Winning Imperatives to Succeed in Antibacterial Drugs Market

Besides the development of novel drugs, market players are experimenting with new routes of administration to increase the efficiency of existing administration drugs. For instance, the availability of the Amikacin inhaler as a liposomal formulation is promising positive results in treating chronic lung infections in cystic fibrosis. In addition, pharmaceutical companies are exploring various means to develop advanced and highly-effective antibacterial drugs.

Manufacturers can also seek partnerships with government organizations to gain financial support for the development of drugs, and, in turn, position themselves as distinguished players in the antibacterial drugs market.

Manufacturers Earmark Asia Pacific for Expansion in Antibacterial Drugs Market

The Middle East and Africa antibacterial drugs market is sizeably held by leading players in Europe. Though free access to healthcare exists in countries of MEA, the demand for novel and effective drugs, on account of progressive acceptance of the out-of-pocket payment model, is projected to draw high sales possibilities. Low cost of generic drugs will continue to fuel market growth in the region during the forecast period. The Latin America antibacterial drugs market witnesses the high imports of drugs from India, Mexico, Italy, China, and Spain. A marked increase in the consumption of drugs, especially β-lactams, is projected to drive growth of the antibacterial drugs market.

Japan holds significant opportunities for players in the antibacterial drugs market, on the back of a large patient pool that includes the geriatric population, coupled with a well-established distribution network. Besides this, given the technological advancements in Japan, e-pharmacies will remain an integral sales channel in the future. Numerous companies such as Aspen Pharma Holdings, Sun Pharmaceuticals, and Lupin continue to invest in Japan to cash in on the profitable opportunities available in this market. Besides this, rise in skin diseases and bacterial infections, on account of high population density in China and India, is projected to turn Asia Pacific into a conducive antibacterial drugs market for expansion purposes.
