Report Overview

Global Pneumonia Therapeutics Market – Market Outlook & Trends


The Global PneumoniaTherapeutics Market valued at USD 1.7 billion in 2019, is expected to reach USD 2.84 billion by 2026, at a CAGR of 7.60% during the projection period. The worldwide pneumonia therapeutics market is growing due to rising air pollution and increasing the geriatric population across the world. Numerous environmental wastes like chemicals spread harmful microorganisms such as fungi, viruses, and bacteria, which cause pneumonia. Most of the pharmaceutical companies undertake substantial research activities for the development of novel drugs, enhancing market growth. Besides, rapid urbanization and industrialization, advanced levels of air pollution, unhealthy routine, and growing smoking populace have increased the cases of asthma and pneumonia in urban areas. It leads to the increasing demand for pneumonia therapeutics, thereby fueling the growth of the Global Pneumonia Therapeutics Market. However, the lack of consciousness among the citizens about its drug & cure and traditional treatment for pneumonia may restrain the development of the pneumonia therapeutics market in the prospect.


Global Pneumonia Therapeutics Market – Overview 


Pneumonia is a seditious disorder disturbing the air sacs or alveoli in the lungs, and it may lead to fever, dry cough, chest pain, breathing trouble, etc. It is usually caused by germs and bacteria and mostly afflicts the person suffering from cold and flu. It can be life-threatening for young children, infants, and older adults. It can be detected with the help of blood tests, X-rays, physical examinations, etc. Vaccination helps avoid pneumonia, whereas patients with critical situations, patients need to be hospitalized and help with oxygen therapy. Generally, antibiotics like quinolones, macrolides, etc. are used for treating pneumonia.


Growth Drivers 


Surging Cases of Pneumonia across the Globe


The unhealthy lifestyle and polluted atmosphere enhance the prevalence of pneumonia across different age-groups of population. Besides, Geriatric or senior citizens are vulnerable to pneumonia due to weak immune systems. Heart disease, diabetes, and other serious diseases are very communal in ageing persons, which eventually raises the risk of pneumonia. The geriatric section accounted for around 20% market share in 2019 and is projected to rise over the forecast period. Also, the geriatric population base is prone to get affected by flu and other lung-related disorders that sometimes grow into pneumonia.


Favorable government initiatives in the Asia Pacific Region 


Asia Pacific pneumonia therapeutics market held a substantial revenue share of 34% in 2019 due to growing cases of pneumonia. Governments of various nations are committed to reducing the prevalence of pneumonia with substantial investment outlay and remedial measures, which is anticipated to enhance the market growth for the therapeutics. 


Increasing R&D Outlay for New Product Development 


The private and state players are allocating more and more outlay for R & D, emphasizing effective therapeutics. Currently, the market is witnessing a significant number of new product launches, driving the market growth. The major companies in pneumonia therapeutics market such as Sanofi, Eli Lilly, AstraZeneca, Merck & Co. Novartis, GlaxoSmithKline, Pfizer, and Baxter International Inc. invest substantially in research applications for developing novel drugs and diagnostic methods.


Impact of COVID-19 in industry


The main causes of COVID-19 are cough and sneeze, and people at large want to mitigate these symptoms or causes at the earliest. They tend to consume the remedial drugs to get cured, which again enhances the market for cough or flu subsiding drugs. In the wake of coronavirus, the pharmaceutical industry has received a major boost, assuring the substantial market growth during the forthcoming period.


Global Pneumonia Therapeutics Market: Segmentation


Global Pneumonia Therapeutics Market is segmented on Drug Class (Antibacterial, Antiviral, Antifungal), Age Group (Pediatric, Adult, Geriatric), Infection Type (Hospital-acquired Pneumonia [HAP], Community-acquired Pneumonia [CAP], Ventilator-associated Pneumonia [VAP]), Distribution Channel (Hospital Pharmacies, Retail Pharmacies, Online Pharmacies).


In Drug Class, the Antiviral drugs market segment is anticipated to witness approximately 7.5% CAGR during the forecast period, due to increasing viral pneumonia which spreads from the fluid present in the air dews after distinct coughs or sneezes. Various remedial options, including Oseltamivir and Acyclovir, are available to give the antiviral contamination and diminish the severity of flu viruses into the body. These options are expected to induce market growth.


Based on the infection type, the HAP market accounted for more than USD 352 Million in 2019 and is expected to grow with the rising hospital stays during the forthcoming period. Hospital-acquired pneumonia is a lung contamination that occurs during hospital stays, which leads to serious issues such as renal failure, respiratory failure, and empyema. Increasing incidences of hospital-acquired pneumonia will induce the request for pneumonia therapeutics drugs.


Based on Distribution Channel, the online pharmacies market will display around 8% CAGR throughout the prediction timeframe. Online pharmacies are better than offline stores in terms of low product and transaction costs. Moreover, online pharmacies offer suitability and convenience to persons with restricted mobility. Furthermore, these pharmacies provide doorstep distribution within a short period that surges their fondness. The factors mentioned above are likely to drive growth in the online segment during the projection timeframe.


Based on region, Global Pneumonia Therapeutics Market is segmented by key regions— North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, South America, and the Middle East & Africa.
