Antifungal drug or antimycotic drugs, are pharmaceutical substances that act selectively against a fungal pathogen such as candida, ringworms etc. in the treatment of fungal infection. The major groups of antifungals are the polyenes, the azoles, and the allyamines. These groups are distinguished primarily by their chemical structure and mechanism of action. The demand for fungistatic agents is estimated to remain strong through 2025 due to mounting cases of fungal infections that are difficult to diagnose, yielding high mortality and morbidity rates. Growing incidences of patients suffering from hospital-acquired or nosocomial infections and infectious diseases are expected to drive the market growth over the forecast period.

According to statistics published by the Centers of Disease Control and Prevention in 2017, it has been estimated that every year, nearly 220,000 new individuals are affected by cryptococcal meningitis, which is a brain infection and has resulted in 181,000 deaths per year around the world.Fungal infections include both systemic and superficial infections such as infection of the skin, eye, mouth, and vagina. Antifungal products with fungicidal activity are mostly used to treat a wide array of diseases, such as athlete's foot, ringworm, and fungal meningitis, caused by fungal agents.As aged people are more prone to infectious diseases and chronic conditions, including HIV and cancer, rise in geriatric population worldwide is likely to stir up the demand for antifungals to treat opportunistic fungal infections. The demand for fungistatic agents is estimated to remain strong through 2025 due to mounting cases of fungal infections that are difficult to diagnose, yielding high mortality and morbidity rates.Fungal diseases are a public health problem as they can affect any individual. However, there is severe threat of fungal infections to people with weak immune response such as patients with AIDS. There is a high possibility of development of opportunistic fungal infections in these patients

Some of the impact factors:

  • Increasing incidence of fungal infections worldwide is the key factor stoking the growth of the market.
  • Rise in adoption of immunosuppressive and antineoplastic agents, prosthetic devices and grafts, and broad-spectrum antibiotics has resulted in increased incidence of fungal infections in recent years.
  • Several types of fungicidal preparations, such as creams, sprays, tablets, & injections, are available. Increasing adoption of these products is anticipated to drive the market during the forecast period
