Bacteriophage Market projected to expand at a CAGR of over 4% throughout the forecast period of 2021-2030

Award winning market research company Fact.MR has published the global bacteriophage market research report. According to the study, the market exhibits high growth potential, expected to yield credible gains through 2021. Long-term prospects also appear positive, with a predicted CAGR exceeding 4% through 2031.

The market was valued at approximately US$ 39 million in 2019, with surging applications in gastroenterology underpinning growth. A study conducted by the University of Gothenburg has established that nearly 40% of adults suffer from at least one functional gastrointestinal disorder, with disorders such as inflammatory bowel diseases being highly prevalent. Excessive reliance on antibiotics has led to a surge in antimicrobial resistance, causing numerous GI problems.

According to the World Health Organization, the rate of resistance such as ciprofloxacin ranges between 8.4% and 92.9% for E. coli, and from 4.1% to 79.4% for K. Pneumoniae. Hence, the medical fraternity is investigating alternative treatment approaches, leading to heightened prospects for bacteriophage based supplements. Manufacturers are augmenting their research capacities, increasing the frequency of clinical trials and funding studies by establishing international level coalitions.

“Growing emphasis on maintaining gut microbiome health is prompting increased consumption of bacteriophage infused supplements and medicines. Recent government legislations such as the emergency investigational new drug (eIND) pathway by the US FDA have enabled healthcare settings to incorporate bacteriophage products in their diagnostics and treatment procedures,” remarks a Fact.MR analyst.
