Market Overview

The oseltamivir market is expected to register a CAGR of 3.2% during the forecast period. Oseltamivir is a neuraminidase inhibitor drug approved for the treatment and prophylaxis of influenza A and B. Oseltamivir acts by inhibiting the neuraminidase enzyme, which is expressed on the viral surface. The enzyme promotes the release of virus from infected cells and facilitates viral movement within the respiratory tract. Oseltamivir is licensed for the treatment of uncomplicated, acute influenza infection in patients who are older than 1 year of age infected for no more than 2 days, and the prophylaxis of influenza in persons aged 13 years and older.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), in the year 2018, estimates that influenza has resulted in between 9-45 million illnesses, between 140,000 – 810,000 hospitalizations and between 12,000 – 61,000 deaths annually.

Increasing prevalence of influenza virus infections worldwide, rising awareness regarding influenza virus infections, and growing awareness programs organized by the government are the key driving factors in the oseltamivir market.
