Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) Drugs Market Forecast:

Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) Drugs Market size is expected to cross USD 33.7 Million by 2025 at a CAGR of 5% during the forecast period.

Market Synopsis

Human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) spreads through body fluids, such as blood and seminal fluid, and attacks the human immune system, especially CD4 cells (often called T cells). The weakening of the immune system results in the occurrence of opportunistic infections and results in acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS).

HIV infection cannot be cured completely. Hence, administering HIV drugs is necessary for controlling its spread and progression to AIDS.

Market Influencer

Increasing awareness about HIV treatment, extensive research & development for new drugs, and a large number of patients diagnosed with HIV annually are impacting the market.

Market Drivers

  • Increasing prevalence of HIV infection

The number of individuals diagnosed with HIV has grown exponentially over the years. For instance, in 2018, the number of individuals infected by HIV worldwide was reportedly 1.7 million.

  • Rising awareness about HIV treatment

Due to the rising awareness of HIV infection and its treatment options, the number of individuals undergoing HIV treatment is increasing. For instance, in 2018, 23.3 million HIV patients were undergoing antiretroviral therapy (ART) globally. The number has increased by 1.6 million as compared to 2017 and 8 million as compared to 2010.

  • Launch of innovative drugs for the effective treatment of HIV

  • Increase in government initiatives to create awareness regarding HIV and its treatment

  • Research and development to launch more effective drugs

Market Restraints

  • Stringent regulatory policies

  • Product recalls


By Type

  • Nucleoside/Nucleotide Reverse Transcriptase Inhibitors (NRTIs): NRTIs are retroviral drugs that prevent HIV’s reverse transcriptase from appropriately copying its RNA into DNA. The segment growth is due to the launch of generic drugs. For instance, in March 2017, Lupin launched generic abacavir and lamivudine tablets in the American market.

  • Non-Nucleoside Reverse Transcriptase Inhibitors (NNRTIs): Innovative product launch is driving the growth of this segment. For instance, Merck Co. & Inc., in November 2018, received approval for doravirine from the European Commission (EC) for the treatment of adults infected with HIV-1.

  • Protease Inhibitors (PIs): This class of drugs prevents HIV from maturing and infecting other healthy cells. Increased awareness regarding HIV treatment has resulted in an increase in demand for drugs. For instance, in 2018, Johnson & Johnson’s Prezista (darunavir) reported a 7.4% increase in its sales as compared to 2017.

  • Integrase Inhibitors: Drugs in this segment are under clinical trials. For instance, ViiV Healthcare, in April 2019, submitted a new drug application to the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for the two-drug regimen of cabotegravir and rilpivirine.

  • Fusion Inhibitors: Includes drugs that prevent the virus from entering healthy cells, thereby avoiding the onset of infection.

  • CCR5 Antagonist: This is a comparatively new class of antiretroviral drugs, prevent HIV from infecting CD4 T cells of the immune system. SELZENTRY (maraviroc) received approval from the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) exclusively for the treatment of CCR5-tropic HIV-1 infection.

  • Post-Attachment Inhibitor or Monoclonal Antibody: The drugs in this category prevent the entry of the virus into the host cell. Currently, Trogarzo is the only approved drug in categorized in this segment.

By End-User

  • Hospitals & Clinics: The largest segment, as hospitals and clinics are usually the primary places for the treatment of any disease.

  • Specialty Centers: Specialty centers are focused on providing treatment for a specific disease/ disorder. Increasing prevalence and awareness regarding HIV treatment is expected to drive the growth of this segment during the forecast period.

By Region

  • Americas: Holds the largest market share due to the presence of key market players and high healthcare expenditure.

  • Europe: The second-largest regional market due to factors such as product launches by key players.

  • Asia-Pacific: The fastest-growing regional market, due to increasing awareness regarding the use of HIV drugs and a significant section of the population affected by HIV.

  • Middle East & Africa: The smallest market due to limited healthcare infrastructure.
