The "Anti-infective Drugs Market Global Briefing 2017" report has been added to Research and Markets' offering.

The global anti-infective drugs market is expected to reach over $125 billion in 2020

This growth is mainly due to the growing infectious diseases caused by bacteria, viruses, fungi and the expected increase in global healthcare expenditure.

Infectious diseases are disorders caused by several pathogenic organisms such as bacteria, viruses, fungi or parasites. These diseases can be transmitted or spread from one person to another through direct contact or indirect contact. Anti-infective drugs are used to treat or prevent these infectious diseases by inhibiting the spread of an infectious agent (static) or by killing the infectious agent (cidal).

Strategic Collaborations And Agreements - Companies in this market are active with multiple strategic collaborations and agreements. Top companies in the anti-infective drug market are strategically partnering and collaborating with other companies to broaden their products and services.

For instance, in May 2015, Janssen Pharmaceuticals, Inc., subsidiary of Johnson & Johnson has entered into an exclusive worldwide license and collaboration arrangement with Achillion Pharmaceuticals, Inc. to develop and commercialize one or more of Achillion's lead hepatitis C virus (HCV) assets which include ACH-3102, ACH-3422 and sovaprevir.

Also in December 2016, Evotec AG was in a strategic alliance with Forge Therapeutics, Inc. to advance its novel Gram-negative antibiotic programme targeting 'LpxC' for the treatment of bacterial infections.
