Key Market Trends

Aminopenicillin Segment is Expected to Exibhit a Steady Growth in the Pneumonia Treatment Market

  • Aminopenicillin is a group of antibiotics that are usually used for the treatment of upper and lower respiratory tract infections. Amoxicillin, penicillin-like drug is the first-line treatment of community-acquired pneumonia infection according to the Infectious Disease Society of America. Amoxicillin binds to penicillin-binding proteins that activates an autolytic enzyme which destroys the bacterial cell wall and thereby kills the bacterial cell.
  • Furthermore, the number of hospital stays is higher in the case of adults which makes them at a greater risk of hospital-acquired pneumonia, according to the study published in 2017 in the Journal of Infection.
  • Also, according to the study published in Age and Ageing in 2017, approximately 1.5% of people are diagnosed with hospital-acquired pneumonia. Thereby, the growing burden of pneumonia in geriatric population and the development of products is expected to drive the market in this segment

Moreover, in 2019, Nabriva Therapeutics plc received an US FDA approval for Xenleta for treatment of adults with community-acquired pneumonia infection. Thus, such factors are expected to influence positively on the pneumonia treatment market.
