Market Overview

Antiretroviral are the drugs that treat HIV. Factors contributing to the growth of the market includes rising burden of HIV, increasing investment in R&D and increase in availability of novel drugs with better efficacy. According to the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services, there were approximately 37.9 million people worldwide that were living with HIV/AIDS. An estimated 1.7 million individuals worldwide became newly infected with HIV in 2018. Anti-retrovirals (ARVs) are the foundation of HIV/AIDS management, as currently there is no cure or vaccine available for HIV. In individuals with a non-resistant strain of HIV, the antiretroviral treatment can suppress the replication of HIV in about 80% of cases. This huge patient pool shows that the market for anti-retroviral drugs is expected to grow in the forecast period.

Scope of the Report

As per the scope of the report, Anti-retroviral drugs are medications for the treatment of infection by retroviruses, primarily HIV. A retrovirus is a group of virus that belongs to the family Retroviridae and they characteristically carry their genetic blueprint in the form of ribonucleic acid (RNA). The anti-retroviral drugs hinder the multiplication of these viruses rather than killing them.
