Executive Summary

Antifungal agents are drugs used for the treatment of fungal infections that can infect almost any part of the body including skin, nails, respiratory tract, urogenital tract and alimentary tract. Treatment of fungal infections currently available in the market can be broadly classified into four major classes of antifungal drugs – Polyenes, Azoles, Allylamines and Echinocandins. Global antifungal market is dominated by systemic antifungal infection.


Over the past several years, there have been high incidences of invasive fungal infections around the globe. In response to this, various antifungal agents with novel action mechanisms, broader action spectrum and fewer side effects have emerged. Growth within Global Antifungal Therapeutics Market is driven by high number of cases of fungal infections, rise in number of immune-compromised aged population and various government initiatives in this field. Some of the restraints to market’s growth are growing resistance to antifungal drugs, limitations with antifungal drugs, presence of generics and government regulations in pharmaceutical industry. Major trends prevailing in the industry includes growth in resistant strains and Candida & Aspergillus causing maximum fungal infections.
