Remdesivir, a drug originally developed by Gilead Sciences, Inc. for the treatment of Ebola, is an antiviral medication belonging to the drug class of protease inhibitors.

Remdesivir is a nucleotide analog particularly of adenosine, which shuts down the viral replication process by inhibiting the activity of an important viral enzyme RNA-dependent RNA polymerase. The drug basically causes mutation in viral genome and blocks polymerase enzymes function, which brings about premature termination of viral replication.

The Global Remdesivir Market is driven by the increasing prevalence of COVID-19 pandemic across different parts of the globe. Remdesivir has been found to be effective in treating novel coronavirus disease patients across different parts of the globe. The Chinese have also been using the drug on compassionate use basis.

Additionally, the drug was also used on the very first COVID-19 patient in the US, a young man in Snohomish country in Washington. He was given the drug when his condition worsened, and signs of improvement were observed on the very next day in his condition after the drug administration.

Promising results were also observed in Japan on 14 patients. After such cases and evidences, the US Food and Drug Administration granted approval to Remdesivir in Oct 2020 and the world is hoping that it will emerge out as a successful coronavirus treatment in coming years as well.

Based on dosage form, the market can be categorized into frozen solution, and lyophilized solution.
