Global Antibiotics Technologies and Markets Report 2020-2025 with Analysis of Major Players - Abbott, F. Hoffmann-La Roche, GlaxoSmithKline, J&J, Merck & Co., Pfizer and Sanofi -

DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The "Antibiotics: Technologies and Global Markets" report has been added to's offering.

The global market for antibiotics should grow from $44.4 billion in 2020 to reach $65.4 billion by 2025 at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 8.1% during the period of 2020-2025.

The antibiotics market growth outlook is positive with significant growth potential for cell wall inhibitor and protein inhibitor antibiotic drugs. There is pressure on antibiotic drug manufacturers to offer antimicrobial-resistant drugs at affordable prices. At the same time, factors such as rising disposable incomes and increasing spending on healthcare in emerging markets, increasing grants from government agencies for antibiotic drugs research and development, and rising incidence of infectious diseases are contributing to the growth of the market.

Pharmaceutical companies and governments are increasingly working together in partnerships and collaborations to provide funding and implement incentive programs for the research and development (R&D) of antibiotics. These partnerships provide financial and technical assistance across different clinical development phases to the pharmaceutical companies.

Various programs, such as the Joint Programming Initiative on Antimicrobial Resistance (JPIAMR), the Innovative Medicines Initiative's (IMI's) New Drugs for Bad Bugs (ND4BB) program, Biomedical Advanced Research and Development Authority's (BARDA) Broad Spectrum Antimicrobials Program, and Combating Antibiotic Resistant Bacteria Biopharmaceutical Accelerator (CARB-X), have been implemented for the development of novel antibiotics by focusing on R&D gaps.

Additionally, The Davos Declaration was signed in January 2016 by more than 100 companies and trade associations which included Allergan, AstraZeneca, GSK, Pfizer and Sanofi. This declaration focused on investments in R&D to meet public health needs, reducing the development of antimicrobial resistance and improving access to antibiotics.

Pharmaceutical companies are increasingly adopting 3D printing technology for the discovery and development of new antibiotics to reduce manufacturing costs and increase production efficiency. For instance, in 2018, a 3D-printed fluorescence imaging box (PFIbox) was developed by McMaster University's laboratory for antibiotics discovery. This box is capable of analyzing more than 6,000 samples of bacteria at a time and provides vital information on bacterial response.
