Global Multi Drug Resistant Antibiotics Market is expected to reach USD 9.20 Billion in 2020 to USD 14.17 Billion by 2027 at a CAGR of 7.2% from 2021 to 2027. Multi drug resistant antibiotics market is driven by the increase in prevalence of the drug resistant bacterial infections such as multi drug resistant TB. In addition, increase in R&D activities to develop the new generation multi drug resistant antibiotics by the marketers coupled with the government and non-government organization's initiatives and fundings are expected to boost the market growth over the forecast period. Furthermore, recent drug resistance antibiotic approvals and promising pipeline drugs are expected to bolster the antibiotic resistance market over the forecast period. However, high cost of R&D and lack of effective antibiotics are expected to hamper the market multi drug resistance antibiotics market during the forecast period. Since the discovery of the penicillin in 1928, large amount of antibiotics are used for human therapy, as well as for farm animals and even for fish in aquaculture, resulted in the selection of pathogenic bacteria resistant to multiple drugs. This multidrug-resistant may be generated by two mechanisms. One is bacteria may accumulate multiple genes, each coding for resistant to the single drug, within a single cell. Another mechanism is increased gene expressions that code for multidrug efflux pumps, effects a wide range of drugs. Multi drug resistant bacteria are formed due to the excessive use of antibiotics in various applications such as prophylactic use for surgery, or immunocompromised patients and other applications. Multi drug resistant antibiotics are the new generation antibiotics that fight against the drug resistant bacteria. In August 2017, U.S. FDA approved The Medicines Company’s Vabomere (meropenem and vaborbactam) for adult patients with urinary tract infections, including pyelonephritis. Vabomere also inhibits certain types of resistance mechanisms used by bacteria. In May 2014, U.S. FDA approved Durata Therapeutic’s (acquired by Actavis) Dalvance (dalbavancin), new anti-bacterial drug for the methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) infections

Multi Drug Resistant Antibiotics Market Dynamics

Emergence of antimicrobial resistance is a major concern, particularly in low and middle-income countries. Multi drug resistance antibiotics market is at growing stage owing to the availability of limited drug resistant antibiotics and there is a huge development need for the novel drugs. The market has many players who are actively participating in the development of the new treatment for multi drug resistant bacterial diseases. For instance, in February 2017, Discuva Ltd., drug discovery company expanded its collaboration with F. Hoffmann-La Roche AG in development of new antibiotic for the life-threatening infections caused by multi drug resistant bacteria and collaboration was originally initiated in February 2014. Furthermore, government and non-government organizations are funding in R&D and spreading awareness related to multi drug resistant antibiotics. Development of novel antibiotics such as plazomicin (in Phase III CL) by Achaogen, Cadazolid (in Phase III CL) by Acetlion Pharmaceuticals and many other companies and their expected commercialization in coming years may drive the market growth furthermore.
