Dual Therapy Gaining Traction as Gonorrhea Therapeutics of Choice, Accounting for Around 90% Demand

Quest for FDA Approval to Make Gonorrhea Therapeutics Landscape Highly Competitive Globally

In its latest study on the gonorrhea therapeutics market, Fact.MR provides insights into factors propelling the demand across key segments in terms of drug type, route of administration, and therapy type. The report also sheds light on latest trends and opportunities shaping the growth of the gonorrhea therapeutics market for the assessment period 2019-2029

Fact.MR – A Market Research and Competitive Intelligence Provider: As per the survey conduction by Fact.MR, the global gonorrhea therapeutics market is expected to reach US$ 970 million by 2019. Increasing demand for novel therapeutics such as third-generation cephalosporin and macrolide antibiotics for the treatment of gonorrhea is anticipated to drive the market at a CAGR of 4% between 2019 and 2029.

The market is primarily driven by the increasing incidence of sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) such as gonorrhea, syphilis, HIV-AIDS, and hepatitis B among others, globally. According to a study by the World Health Organization (WHO), nearly 376 million new infections are registered around the world every year, out of which 1 in 4 STIs is gonorrhea, syphilis, chlamydia, and trichomoniasis. This has necessitated research into novel therapeutics.

Increasing number of campaigns, missions, and programs launched by governments of various nations are expected to facilitate market growth. For instance, as per a report by the National AIDS Control Organization, the Government of India has launched programs such as the National Reproductive and Child Health and National AIDS Control Programme (NACP) to spread awareness regarding STIs and curb their incidence across the country. Such initiatives are projected to drive the growth of the market.
