Growth Strategies by the Key Players Operating in the Malaria Treatment Market:

Sept-2022: GSK plc announced that the World Health Organization (WHO) has awarded prequalification to Mosquirix (also known as RTS,S/AS01), GSK’s groundbreaking malaria vaccine. This is the first prequalification for a malaria vaccine and is an important step in rolling out the vaccine in countries with moderate to high P. falciparum malaria transmission.

Jun-2022: In June 2022, at the Kigali Summit on Malaria and Neglected Tropical Diseases (NTDs), Novartis announced a five-year (2021-2025) financial commitment of USD 250 million to advance R&D of new treatments to combat malaria and NTDs. This includes USD 150 million to advance the clinical development programs of its three novel malaria drug candidates to combat the emerging resistance to artemisinin. The company will also continue with activities to support the development of an optimized formulation for neonates and infants under 5kg, for whom no treatment currently exists.

Dec-2021: Drug maker Cadila Healthcare (Zydus Cadila), announced its antimalarial drug ZY19489 (MMV253), currently in development together with Medicines for Malaria Venture (MMV), received orphan drug designation from the USFDA.

Jan-2021: GSK, PATH, and Bharat Biotech (BBIL) announced the signing of a product transfer agreement for the malaria vaccine, RTS,S/AS01E. The agreement includes the transfer of manufacturing of the RTS,S antigen part of the vaccine and the grant of a license on all rights pertaining to the RTS,S/AS01 malaria vaccine to BBIL. GSK will retain the production of the adjuvant of the vaccine (AS01E) and will supply it to BBIL.

Jan-2021: GSK and Medicines for Malaria Venture (MMV) announced that the Australian Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) accepted the submission of a Category 1 application to extend the indication of single-dose Kozenis (tafenoquine) to pediatric populations for the radical cure (prevention of relapse) of Plasmodium vivax (P. vivax) malaria.

Impact of COVID-19 on Global Malaria Treatment Market Growth:

According to the World Health Organization (WHO) report, there were an estimated 241 million cases of malaria and 627,000 malarial deaths globally in 2020. Additionally, two-thirds of these additional deaths (47,000) were linked to disruptions in the provision of malaria prevention, diagnosis, and treatment during the COVID-19 pandemic. Also, during the initial days of the pandemic, severe service disruptions caused malarial deaths in Sub-Saharan Africa. As Sub-Saharan Africa continues to carry the heaviest malaria burden accounting for ~95% of all malaria cases and 96% of all deaths in 2020 as per the estimates provided by WHO. Therefore, WHO and its partners recognize the need to ensure better and more equitable access to all health services involving malaria prevention, diagnosis, and treatment. Moreover, innovative tools also played a vital role in the treatment of malaria during the pandemic. For example, "RTS,S/AS01 (RTS,S)" is a new malaria prevention tool. Further, the WHO recommended that children living in Sub-Saharan Africa must be screened for moderate to high infection of P. falciparum


Rapid Diagnostic Tests (RDTs) to Bolster Global Malaria Treatment Market Growth:

RDTs for malaria can improve the quality of management of the disease. RDTs are proven to be highly affordable and effective for public health programs implemented in low-resource settings. RDTs are widely used in remote areas with limited access to microscopy services. As a result, there has been a rapid rise in the demand for RDTs for malaria. Several RDTs have been developed to test the presence of malaria parasites in blood samples. Identifying and successfully treating malaria in low transmission areas is critical to reduce transmission and achieve complete elimination of the disease. According to the WHO, more than 70% of malaria diagnostic testing is performed using RDTs in Africa. Many companies are engaged in developing a wide range of RDTs with high sensitivities. A few of these developments are mentioned below.


Speak To Analyst:


In November 2020, researchers from Rice University developed a simple microneedle patch similar to a bandage to detect malaria. With this development, the researchers have stepped on the path of reducing the burden of disease in countries struggling with poor health infrastructure. The microneedles loaded on the patch collect interstitial fluid, which contains several biomarkers that help in detecting malaria.

In June 2020, the Foundation for Innovative New Diagnostics (FIND) and Scanwell Health, a US-based company, partnered to develop a smartphone app that uses machine learning to read RDTs for malaria. This app would help healthcare professionals to interpret and record test results. With the expected compatibility with RDT kits and mobile devices, the app is likely to receive significant attention in low- and middle-income countries.
