Growth Factors

 This is owing to the loss of patent protection of drugs and the high R&D investment required for developing antiviral drugs. However, the rising prevalence of viral infections and the presence of a potential pipeline for the treatment of HIV infection are expected to fuel the growth over the forecast period.

The increasing prevalence of influenza with other complications such as viral pneumonia, obesity, and the rising geriatric population drives the market growth. Moreover, pneumonia is one of the major causes of death in children worldwide. According to the WHO, Pneumonia causes 808,694 children’s deaths in 2017, accounting for 15.0% of all deaths of children under 5 years old. It is most prevalent in South Asia and the sub-Saharan African region.

Report Highlights

The reverse transcriptase inhibitors segment dominated the market for antiviral drugs and accounted for the largest revenue share of 51.0% in 2020. The segment is anticipated to maintain its dominance over the forecast period.

The high share of reverse transcriptase inhibitors can be attributed to the increasing diagnosis and treatment rate of HIV, as these medicines are mainly used to treat HIV infection and the high effectiveness of these drugs against viral infections. The protease inhibitors segment held the second-largest revenue share in 2020 and is anticipated to witness a CAGR of -1.5% over the forecast period.

The branded segment dominated the market and accounted for the largest revenue share of 59.2% in 2020. The segment is expected to maintain its dominance over the forecast period. Branded antiviral medicines such as Biktarvy, Genvoya, Triumeq, Mavyret, and Prezista hold a significant share of the market. Increasing demand for the generic version of antiviral drugs in developing countries due to its cost-effectiveness is driving the generics segment.

The HIV segment dominated the market and held the largest revenue share of 46.1% in 2020. The segment is expected to witness the fastest growth rate over the forecast period. The high prevalence of HIV infection coupled with a high treatment rate, presence of branded drugs, and government initiatives to increase the treatment rate is estimated to drive the market at a higher growth rate.

North America dominated the market and accounted for the largest revenue share in 2020. The region is expected to witness a CAGR of -1.9% over the forecast period. The market decline can be attributed to the loss of market exclusivity of branded drugs, increasing vaccination rate against viral infections, and government initiatives to reduce the incidence of viral infections.
