Drivers and Restraints Impacting the Global Cryptococcosis Treatment Market; CMI Reveals Insights upto 2026

Cryptococcosis is a fungal disease, which in severe cases, could prove to be fatal. It is generally caused by a particular species of the fungus Cryptococcus, called Cryptococcus neoformans. Cryptococcosis is said to be acquired by inhaling contagious propagule, usually present in one’s surroundings. Even though the accurate character of the contagious propagule is not known, the primary theory determines the basidiospore, which is produced in the course of sexual or asexual reproduction, to be the principal cause. Cryptococcosis disease symptoms include fatigue, fever, headache, blurred vision, and dry cough, among others. The onset of the symptoms is often sub-acute, which worsens progressively over a few weeks.

Two of the key complications of the disease are meningitis (brain infection) and pulmonary infection or lung infection. The occurrence of cryptococcosis is steadily increasing for a multitude of reasons, such as rising prevalence of AIDS, extended use of immunosuppressive drugs, etc. These factors are likely to propel the growth of the global cryptococcosis treatment market in the near future.

According to a report issued by the National Centre for Biotechnology Information, illnesses caused due to the Cryptococcus fungi occur on a global scale and in an extensive range of hosts, starting from patients who are strictly immunosuppressed to patients with normal immune systems. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reported that around 1 million cryptococcosis cases arise across the globe, and it is estimated that the number of deaths associated with cryptococcosis is would be around 650,000 each year. Most of the cases are reported among amongst patients with complex HIV disease. However, incidence rate is high amongst the recipients of solid organ transplant and patients getting exogenous immunosuppression. Cryptococcus occurs in those with acquired and innate immunodeficiency as well.

As the AIDS population is rising at a startling rate, the likelihood of occurrence of the disease is rising proportionately. Since cryptococcosis disease is communicable in nature, and it gets transmitted from one affected person to the next, persons suffering from the disease are expected to rise in the near future. Therefore, the cryptococcosis treatment market will also show a considerable growth.
