The Anti-fungal Drugs market is segmented by Drug Type (Echinocandins, Azoles, Polyenes, Allylamines, and Other Drug Types), Indication, Dosage Form, and Geography.
Fastest Growing Market:
The major factors augmenting the growth of the anti-fungal drugs market include increasing awareness about the myriad fungal infections, increasing the number of antifungal drugs available over-the-counter (OTC), and rising consumption of anti-fungal drugs in developing regions for a variety of medical conditions.
As per the scope of this report, anti-fungal drugs refer to the drugs used/prescribed for the treatment of diseases caused by fungi. The report covers (but is not limited to) drugs used/prescribed in aspergillosis, dermatophytosis, and candidiasis. The types of drugs covered (but are not limited to) in this report are echinocandins, azoles, polyenes, and allylamines. The definitions for individual segments have been provided in the respective segments.

Anti-fungal drug research is gaining momentum, owing to the development of new antifungal drugs using the azole group. Azoles are synthetic and semi-synthetic compounds, widely used for superficial and invasive fungal infections. The drugs are used to treat thrush, yeast infection, candidiasis, aspergillosis, tinea versicolor, athlete's foot, jock itch, ringworm, nail fungus, fungal infections, systemic mycosis, and seborrheic dermatitis. The azole anti-fungal group includes two classes, namely the triazoles (fluconazole, itraconazole, voriconazole, posaconazole, and isavuconazole) and the imidazoles (ketoconazole). Triazoles have a broad range of applications in the treatment of superficial and systemic fungal infections. The azoles are currently the most widely used and studied class of antifungal agents. The drugs are available in different formulations (oral tablet, oral capsule, cream, dandruff shampoo, sterile IV solution, lotion, vaginal cream, and tablet). Sales of both the established agents and newly launched anti-fungal agents are significant.
However, there are some issues reported earlier, such as an increased resistance is being observed among the Candida and Aspergillus species, particularly to azoles, which is believed to be driven by the use of azoles in agriculture. Increasing drug resistance is anticipated to provide an opportunity for other drug classes to capture the market.

Fungal diseases in the United States have presented challenges to the healthcare authorities in the country. People across the world, including in the United States, have developed resistance to the available medicines. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), resistance to certain types of Candida (which happens to be the most common cause of healthcare-associated bloodstream infections in the United States) has been noticed. Approximately 7% of all the Candida bloodstream isolates tested at CDC are resistant to fluconazole. This observation has remained fairly constant over the last two decades. However, echinocandin resistance has been on the rise. In addition, the incidences of multi-drug resistance have increased in the country. Moreover, thirteen cases of Candida auris (which can cause invasive infections and is resistant to anti-fungal drugs) have been identified in the United States. The immunocompromised, aged population is on the rise in the United States. The increasing incidences of resistance and immunocompromised population have been a major concern for the government. This provides an opportunity for pharmaceutical players in the country to develop novel and more effective drugs for fungal diseases.
