Respiratory Antiviral Drugs Market Dynamics
- Rise in the prevalence of respiratory viral diseases
The surging prevalence of respiratory viral illnesses such as influenza, bronchiolitis, and others is a major factor driving the respiratory antiviral drugs market's growth rate during the forecast period of 2022-2029. Flu incidence and prevalence are steadily rising over the world. Every year, the flu affects between 5% and 20% of the population in the United States, according to the CDC. In addition, an estimated 200,000 persons are hospitalized in the United States each year owing to flu illness, with 36,000 of them succumbing to flu complications.
- Increasing investment for healthcare infrastructure
Another significant factor influencing the growth rate of respiratory antiviral drugs market is the rising healthcare expenditure which helps in improving its infrastructure. Also, various government organizations aims to improve the healthcare infrastructure by increasing funding and this will further influence the market dynamics.
- Increase in the prevalence rate of viral infections and respiratory syncytial virus epidemics
Virus infections and respiratory syncytial virus outbreaks have increased dramatically in recent years, which can be ascribed to changing environmental conditions. Antiviral drugs diminish the capacity of viruses to transmit from cell to cell or person to person while also reducing the length of flu symptoms. Antiviral drugs are prescribed to treat and prevent influenza-like symptoms, viral pneumonia, and respiratory problems. Oseltamivir phosphate (Tamiflu), zanamivir (Relenza), and baloxavir are three of the most commonly prescribed antiviral medications by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to treat seasonal flu. Hence, the rising prevalence rate of viral infections and respiratory syncytial virus epidemics is expected to enhance the market's growth rate.
Furthermore, the surging geriatric population and sedentary lifestyle of people, including high addiction of smoking will result in the expansion of respiratory antiviral drugs market. Along with this, favorable reimbursement policies will enhance the market's growth rate.
- Increasing number of research and development activities
The market's growth is fueled by an increase in the number of research and development activities. Treatments for respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) infection have shown to be beneficial in the treatment of bronchiolitis. For instance, Ark Biosciences, a biotech company focusing on therapies for viral infections and respiratory disorders, recently announced the phase 2 proof-of-concept study for Ziresovir (AK0529), an antiviral drug, was completed successfully. Bronchiolitis has killed hundreds of thousands of people globally, mostly children under the age of five. As a result, businesses in the respiratory antiviral treatment market are bolstering their research capacity in order to create treatments for infant bronchiolitis. This will provide beneficial opportunities for the respiratory antiviral drugs market growth.
Moreover, the market's growth is fueled by an increase in the number of product launches and emerging new markets. These factors will provide beneficial opportunities for the respiratory antiviral drugs market growth.
On the other hand, the high cost associated with drug development and distribution will obstruct the market's growth rate. The shortage of healthcare infrastructure in developing economies and the dearth of skilled professionals will challenge the respiratory antiviral drugs market. Additionally, a lack of awareness among people and the availability of generic medications will restrain and further impede the growth rate of the market during the forecast period of 2022-2029.
