Market Overview

The candidiasis therapeutics market is expected to witness rapid growth due to the increase in the number of patients affected by candidiasis infection, an increase in the susceptible immune-compromised patient pool, and growing awareness for candidiasis infection.

There has been an increase in the number of patients affected by candidiasis infection in the developing markets, which may boost the overall market growth over the forecast period. The Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates that approximately 46,000 cases of healthcare-associated invasive candidiasis occur each year, in the United States. CDC reports that the 30-day all-cause (crude) mortality among people with candidemia is approximately 30%. However, as people who develop invasive candidiasis typically have pre-medical conditions, it is generally ambiguous to determine the proportion of deaths directly attributable to the infection. This increase in the number of patients has helped in spurring the growth of the overall market. The increasing urbanization and rising hygiene awareness in developing countries may also help in the growth of the market.

Scope of the Report

As per the scope of the report, candidiasis is a fungal infection that affects men and women, both, of all age groups. It is also known as candidosis, moniliasis, and oidiomycosis. The effects of this infection are seen on a dermal, internal, and systemic level, wherein it is known as candidemia or intestinal thrush. The market is dynamic due to the widespread occurrence of this disease. The major drug classes for the treatment include azoles, polyenes, and echinocandins.

Key Market Trends

Systemic Candidiasis under the Anatomy Type Segment is Anticipated to Dominate the Market during the Forecast Period

The market for systemic candidiasis is driven by the increase in the susceptible immune-compromised patient pool. Thrush occurs in approximately 2-5% of healthy newborns and affects them mainly during their first year of life. Over 1 million adult women and adolescent girls in the United States develop vaginal yeast infections each year. Therefore, the high incidence rate of candidiasis is expected to remain a major driver for the growth of the market, during the forecast period.
