Increase in Reported Cases of Cryptococcosis: A Key Driver

  • HIV positive patients are found to be more prevalent for fungal infection. Around 220,000 cases of cryptococcal meningitis are evident to occur among people with HIV/AIDS worldwide each year, resulting in nearly 181,000 deaths. Most cryptococcal meningitis cases occur in sub-Saharan Africa.
  • According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) of the U.S., the overall incidence of cryptococcosis was 0.4 to 1.3 cases per 100,000 population and annual incidence among persons with AIDS was between 2 and 7 cases per 1,000; the case-fatality ratio was approximately 12%.
  • Prevalence of cryptococosis lied majorly in Sub-Saharan countries. However, in recent years, many cases of HIV related cryptococcosis occurred in developed countries such as Australia, U.S. and Germany. The advanced screening processes available in these nations also improve the rate of diagnosis, thereby driving the Cryptococcosis drugs industry. Increased HIV related cryptococcosis infection along with rising initiatives by government and non-government organizations for awareness of available treatment is the major factor that drives the growth of cryptococcosis market.

Improved access to diagnostic facilities to Augment Global Market

  • Accurate diagnosis of cryptococcosis infection is challenging because of lack of technologies to distinguish C. neoformans and C. gattii infections
  • Currently available diagnostic technologies require use of examination of DNA or isolation of the fungus using customized culture media. These technologies are time consuming, expensive, and require skilled operators.
  • However, new technologies such as biomarker detection in blood using immunoassay platforms are being introduced in the market that offer more efficient results. These new technologies are expected to improve diagnosis of cryptococcosis infection. This in turn is likely to drive the cryptococcosis market.

Patent expiry of key drugs and entry of generics to Hamper Global Cryptococcosis Market

  • The Cryptococcosis market experienced a patent cliff during the last decade. Expiration of patents affects the revenue of pharmaceutical companies. Moreover, generic version of a drug hampers the revenue of branded drug products.
  • This factor is expected to have a profound impact on the cryptococcosis drugs market, causing a decline in market revenue. Moreover, approved ANDAs for most of these molecules will lead to intense generic competition. Increasing number of generic drugs and patent expirations will negatively affect the market. Hence, patent expirations are likely to restrain the Cryptococcosis market.

North America to Account for Major Share of Global Cryptococcosis Market

  • North America leads the global cryptococcosis market commanding more than 40% share in the global cryptococcosis market. Recent advances in cryptococcosis diagnostics with biomarker test, reimbursement for disease screening, and improved access to antifungal drugs such as flucytosine are the major drivers of the cryptococcosis market in North America. U.S. is the major market in North America. The cryptococcosis market in the U.S. is driven by rising prevalence of cryptococcus gattii in the Pacific Northwest Region of the U.S. Moreover, major factors such as HIV population, highly structured health care industry, and availability of well-defined reimbursement policies from public and private health insurance firms fuel the growth of the cryptococcosis market in the U.S.
  • Middle East & Africa is the second leading market due to the major contribution of Sub-Saharan countries where the burden of HIV related cryptococcosis infections are very high. Most of the drugs in the region are distributed by non-government organizations. However, the retail pharmacies segment held significant market share in Middle East & Africa.
