August 30, 2021

According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled "Antibiotics Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2022-2027," the global antibiotics market reached a value of US$ 47.4 Billion in 2021. Antibiotics refer to antimicrobial substances that assist in combating bacterial and protozoan infections. They include a group of medicines that inhibit the growth of microorganisms in order to prevent the replication of parasites. Generally administered orally in the form of pills, tablets, liquids, and capsules, there are numerous classes of antibiotics that are based on their mode of action, chemical structures and spectrum of activity. They can also be available as creams, ointments, sprays, and lotions that are commonly applied on the skin for treating acne and related skin conditions. Some of the widely prescribed antibiotics include penicillin, cephalosporin and fluoroquinolone that can be used in the treatment of sinus infections, pneumonia, urinary tract infections, skin infections and ear infections.

We are regularly tracking the direct effect of COVID-19 on the market, along with the indirect influence of associated industries. These observations will be integrated into the report.
