The demand for new drug candidates for antimicrobial resistant infections is increasing. Antimicrobial resistance is a serious concern to global public health as it resulted in long duration of illness, the requirement of additional tests and use of more expensive drugs. Antimicrobial resistance occurs when microorganisms such as bacteria, viruses, parasites and fungi change and adapted to drugs when they are exposed to antimicrobial drugs such as antibiotics, antivirals, antifungals, anthelmintic and others. According to World Health Organization (WHO), globally 4,80,000 people are developing multi-drug resistant TB each year and drug resistance is starting to complicate the treatment of malaria and HIV as well.  Companies are investing in developing the new drug candidates to treat drug-resistant infections.




North America was the largest region in the anti-infective drugs market in 2017, accounting for almost one-third of the market share. This can be attributed to the presence of established health care networks and high healthcare spending in the region.
