Prophylactic HIV Drugs Market Analysis

The prophylactic human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) drug market is expected to register a CAGR of 4.1% during the forecast period.

  • The novel COVID-19 augmented the need to evaluate the antiretroviral drugs to treat COVID-19 infections. The drugs such as lopinavir and ritonavir, used in combination to treat HIV, were repurposed to treat COVID-19 infections. Several countries have evaluated the potential of these antiretroviral drugs for treating coronavirus infection. For instance, in November 2021, Pfizer reported the submission of an application to the United States Food and Drug Administration (US FDA) for emergency use authorization for its investigational oral drug combination for COVID-19, ritonavir-boosted PF-07321332. 
  • Additionally, according to the study published in the National Library of Medicine in January 2022, between March and April 2020, hospital utilization of ritonavir-boosted lopinavir increased eightfold. As a result, the studied market was significantly impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. However, the market is growing at a stable pace due to a resumption of diagnosis procedures, manufacturing activities, and the availability of products. It is expected to witness a similar trend over the coming years.
  • The major factors driving the market's growth are the high prevalence of HIV globally. For instance, according to the Joint United Nations Programme on HIV/AIDS (UNAIDS) factsheet 2022, in 2021, 38.4 million individuals were living with HIV, and 1.5 million were newly infected with the virus. In 2021, 28.7 million people will have access to antiretroviral medication. As a result of the high prevalence of HIV globally, demand for prophylactic HIV medications is predicted to rise, propelling market growth throughout the forecast period.
  • A large number of non-profit organizations and pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies are investing in HIV clinical research for the development of advanced drugs, which is likely to propel the growth of the market. For instance, in August 2022, US Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Xavier Becerra announced more than USD 20 million in funding to enhance HIV prevention, testing, and treatment services at health centers in the US at the National Ryan White Conference on HIV Care and Treatment. The health centers that receive this grant will use it to increase access to HIV prevention drugs (including pre-exposure prophylaxis, PrEP, and related services).
  • In addition, product launches and approval by the regulatory authority are expected to support market expansion over the forecast period. For instance, in October 2022, Excision reported that the FDA had approved it as Investigational New Drug (IND) as a treatment to prevent HIV, called EBT-101. Thus, such efforts by market participants may result in the launch of advanced preventive therapy, which is expected to boost market growth over the forecast period. However, lower penetration in an underdeveloped market and side effects associated with this drug, such as vomiting, nausea, tiredness, and diarrhea, may restrain the market's growth.

Oral Drug Forms Segment is Expected to Hold a Significant Share Over the Forecast Period

  • The oral drug segment is expected to dominate the global prophylactic HIV drug market over the forecast period. This can be attributed to new product development and the presence of a strong pipeline coupled with rising product approvals. The oral route also has several pharmacokinetic advantages, such as a higher rate of bioavailability, rapid drug delivery, and high efficacy. All these advantages are expected to propel segment growth.
  • The oral route is the most patient-compliant; therefore, it is most widely adopted by patients. Also, the development of promising new drugs and potential clinical pipeline candidates are some of the major factors expected to drive segment growth. 
  • For instance, in March 2022, ViiV Healthcare, a company majority owned by GlaxoSmithKline plc with Pfizer Inc. and Shionogi Limited as shareholders, reported that the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved a label update for Cabenuva (cabotegravir and rilpivirine). Additionally, in June 2022, Cipla Ltd. and its partner Drugs for Neglected Diseases Initiative (DNDi) reported the availability of a 4-in-1 antiretroviral medication for HIV-positive youngsters in South Africa. The South African Health Products Regulatory Authority (SAHPRA) has approved a sweet-tasting, heat-stable, and "4-in-1" fixed-dose combination of four antiretroviral (ARV) medications created specifically for newborns and young children with HIV.
  • The future growth of the market is anticipated to be fueled by the launch of various potential pipeline candidates, such as fostemsavir and PRO 140, and the launch of generic versions of various branded drugs, such as tenofovir disoproxil fumarate tablets. Thus, all the aforementioned factors, such as the launch of an oral drug, are expected to boost segment growth over the forecast period.

North America is Expected to Hold a Significant Market Share Over the Forecast Period

  • North America is one of the strongest regions and is also an important revenue contributor to the global HIV prophylactic drug market. Heightened awareness of disease-remitting therapies among patients, the presence of a technologically advanced healthcare framework, and supportive reimbursement policies are stimulating the growth of the region. 
  • As per the Department of Health and Human Services, in 2020, 30.6 thousand people will receive an HIV diagnosis in the United States and its dependent areas. Similarly, according to the HIV Surveillance Report 2021, over 2,132 HIV diagnoses were reported in Canada, 5.6 per 100,000 population. The age group 30 to 39 years had the highest HIV diagnosis rate at 12.7 per 100,000 population. Thus, the growing prevalence of HIV in the region is expected to propel the growth of the market over the forecast period.
  • In addition, increasing government funding and programs for HIV prevention and treatment are expected to boost the market over the forecast period. For instance, for the fiscal year 2023, the US government's spending on the domestic fight against HIV has increased to more than USD 28 billion annually. This sum includes both discretionary and required spending for Medicare, Medicaid, Social Security payouts, and other required spending. Hence, owing to all the aforementioned factors, the North American region is anticipated to grow at high rates.
