Systemic Antibiotics Market - Introduction

Antibiotics are indispensable medicines for the treatment of life-threatening disorders and infections. Systemic antibiotics are antibiotics used in the treatment of bacterial infections, administered orally or intravenously i.e., directly into the blood stream of patients. Systemic antibiotics work throughout the body and help in resolution of infections.

Systemic antibiotics are used to treat urinary tract infections, skin infections, dental diseases, and other bacterial infections. Amoxicillin, cephalosporin, macrolide, tetracycline, and metronidazole are major systemic antibiotics used for the treatment of dental disorders including periodontal and endodontic diseases. Moreover, tetracycline class of antibiotics are considered first-line therapy for severe acne which work by inhibiting the protein synthesis by binding the 30S subunit of the bacterial ribosome. Furthermore, macrolides such as azithromycin and erythromycin are used for the treatment of acne.

Systemic Antibiotics Market - Dynamics

Rise in Prevalence of Chronic Diseases Globally Drives Market

Increase in incidence of infectious and chronic diseases and rise in prevalence of dental disorders are the major factors driving the global systemic antibiotics market. Periodontal diseases and tooth loss and decay are highly common dental disorders across the globe. For instance, it is estimated that periodontal disease is highly prevalent in the geriatric population and affects 20% to 50% of the population globally. Moreover, diabetic mellitus leading to diabetic foot infections, urinary tract infections, and other contagious diseases is rising across the globe. This is projected to fuel the demand for systemic antibiotics in the next few years. Rise in skin infections and other chronic wounds is likely to boost demand for systemic antibiotics during the forecast period.

Favorable Government Initiatives and Increase in Investment in R&D Propels Market

Increase in investment in research and development for new drug development is anticipated to augment the global systemic antibiotics market during the forecast period. For instance, the U.S. invested US$ 260 Mn and US$ 410 Mn in antibiotic R&D activities in 2015 and 2016, respectively.

Moreover, launch and implementation of various government initiatives such as antibiotic stewardship by CDC to promote the appropriate use of antibiotics and reduce antimicrobial resistance is expected to augment the global systemic antibiotics market during the forecast period.

Adverse Reactions and Antibiotic Resistance to Impede the Systemic Antibiotics Market

Emergence of antibiotic resistance by various species of bacteria and adverse reactions including allergic reactions, hypersensitivity reactions, anaphylaxis, and rashes associated with intake of systemic antibiotics are expected to restrain the global market in the near future. For instance, tinnitus, dizziness, pigment deposition of skin, pharyngitis, gastrointestinal disturbances, C. difficile infection, photosensitivity caused due to tetracycline, and macrolides during acne treatment are anticipated to hamper the growth of the global systemic antibiotics market in the next few years.

North America to Dominate the Systemic Antibiotics Market

Increase in incidence of diabetes mellitus leading to diabetic foot infections in the U.S. is a major factor contributing to the dominant share of North America during the forecast period. Based on National Diabetes Statistics Report 2017 by CDC, 30.3 million people in the U.S. have diabetes. According to the American Diabetes Association (ADA), annual incidence of foot ulcers in diabetes patients ranges from 2% to 8% in the U.S. Furthermore, strong pipeline of antibiotics is anticipated to drive the market in the U.S. in the next few years. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), there were around 39 systemic antibiotics in varying clinical development phases in the U.S. in 2015. All these factors are anticipated to drive the market in North America.
