Streptococcus infections are the kind of bacterial infections that are caused by various strains of Streptococci bacteria. Numerous strains of streptococci can cause different types of infectious diseases such as strep throat, tonsillitis, blood infections, scarlet fever, pneumonia and others
Global Streptococcus Infection Market Dynamics
- Rising Adoption of Antibiotics
Clostridium difficile infection is primarily associated with long-term antibiotic use. Increased antibiotic consumption changes the colon bacteria, allowing clostridium difficile bacteria to grow. Antibiotics such as penicillin or amoxicillin are more likely to cause streptococcus infection. The higher use of these antibiotics is increasing the prevalence of clostridium difficile infection, which is most likely to boost the demand for its treatments. Therefore, the more and more consumption of antibiotics acts as a major driver of growth in the global streptococcus infection market.
- Prevalence of streptococcus diseases
The rising incidence of this infection is boosting the growth of the market. For instance, a study by the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine projected that out of 410,000 group B streptococcus cases each year, at least 147,000 stillbirths and infant deaths are projected to occur worldwide. Africa had the highest burden, with 54% of estimated cases and 65% of stillbirths and infant deaths. An increase in the prevalence of group B streptococcus infections and the rate of new infections is possible to drive the global streptococcus infection market.
- Rising Drug Development Activities
Higher drug development activities for developing and launching several new drugs are projected to create market opportunities for growth in the market by providing doctors with an alternate treatment option. Additionally, the development of a new class of non-antibiotic drugs and vaccines is most likely to open up a large number of opportunities for major market players while also increasing the competition for manufacturing better treatment options. Therefore, increased drug development activities for developing novel drugs for better treatment and prevention are anticipated to create market growth in the near future. For instance, in 2017, Pfizer started phase I/II trial of its group B streptococcus conjugate vaccine named PF-06760805, which incorporates at least five serotypes of group B streptococcus and could prevent around 95% of group B streptococcus disease in infants through maternal immunization.
- Increasing Demand for Retail Pharmacies
The rise in the number of these infectious therapeutics being delivered through retail pharmacies and the surge in the number of retail pharmacies in highly developed countries create much opportunities for the market growth. In addition, patients elect retail pharmacies to purchase drugs, as these are easily feasible.
- Lack of skilled professionals
The lack of trained who cannot treat the patients with appropriate treatments could limit the growth of the global streptococcus infection market during a forecast period.
- High Cost For Drug Development
The current treatment options for streptococcus infection are limited to antibiotics, and numerous pharmaceutical companies are presently focusing on developing non-antibiotic alternatives. Developing a new class of drugs will offer many growth opportunities for key players, but it will also essentially require major investments in R&D activities of novel therapies. The significantly high investment requirements may act as an obstacle to market growth.
