A comprehensive study on the antibiotics market. Rise in the prevalence of infectious diseases to elicit the antibiotics research.

Fort Collins, Colorado, Oct. 10, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — According to DataHorizzon Research, the antibiotics market size was valued at USD 42.1 Billion in 2022 and is expected to have a market size of USD 71.5 Billion by 2032 with a CAGR of 5.5%. 

Antibiotics are chemicals or drugs (secondary metabolites) used to treat an infectious disease, either by inhibiting or killing the growth of pathogens in vivo at low concentrations. Antibiotics can eliminate the disease-causing microbes in a host’s body in the right amounts. Antibiotics should be taken only when necessary, as overuse or misuse can lead to antibiotic resistance. Antibiotic resistance means bacteria gain the ability to resist the ability of antibiotics to kill pathogens. Antibacterial-resistant illnesses can be hazardous and even fatal.


Diseases such as the plague, whooping cough, diphtheria, and leprosy can be effectively treated with antibiotics, saving countless lives globally. Antibiotics are widely used in healthcare and are considered essential medicines. Moreover, antibiotics are effective only in treating bacterial infections and ineffective against viral infections; therefore should be used under the guidance of healthcare professionals. 

The increasing prevalence of bacterial infections plays a crucial role in boosting the growth of the antibiotics market. Bacterial infections such as skin infections, urinary tract infections, gastrointestinal infections, and others can be easily treated with the help of antibiotics. Additionally, antibiotic resistance is one of the major concerns, as more bacteria develop resistance to the medicine. Therefore, there is a dire need for new formulations of antibiotics to combat drug-resistant strains.
