Global Anti-Infectives Market

Infectious diseases are one of the leading causes of morbidity and mortality throughout the world. The global market for all infectious diseases is expected to be ~$100 billion dollars by 2022, and is expanding at least 8% per year for the foreseeable future.

The antibiotic market is ~$20B and growing, but antibiotic resistance is a growing threat that will eventually undermine the treatment advancements that have been made since antibiotics first widely became used in the 1940’s. In the US alone, there are approximately 2 million antibiotic-resistant infections each year leading to 23,000 deaths (CDC).
