Global Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus Aureus Drugs Market Overview


Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus Aureus Drugs Market Size was valued at USD 3.32 Billion in 2023. The Global MRSA Drugs industry is projected to grow from USD 3.45 Billion in 2024 to USD 4.68 Billion by 2032, exhibiting a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 4.10% during the forecast period (2024 - 2032).


Some of the major market drivers propelling the Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus Aureus Drugs market are the increasing number of clinical trials, the growing incidence of antibiotic-resistant strains, and the ongoing exposure to multidrug-resistant organisms in healthcare facilities as a result of prolonged hospital stays.


April 2024: Zevtera (ceftobiprole) from Basilea has been approved by the FDA for the treatment of three distinct types of infections. The nods will be beneficial to patients who have developed resistance to the current stock of antibiotics available in the United States, the majority of which have been on the market for decades. Adults with acute bacterial skin and skin structure infections (ABSSSI) and adults with staphylococcus aureus bacteremia (SAB), a systemic infection that can be fatal, may be administered Zevtera. 


It is also effective in the treatment of community-acquired bacterial pneumonia (CABP) in patients aged three months and older. The approvals will grant Basilea a 10-year exclusivity period in the United States for Zevtera, as it was designated as a Qualified Infectious Disease Product under the Generate Antibiotics Incentives Now Act. Basilea anticipates that it will be possible to secure a partner to market Zevtera in the United States by the "middle of this year." The collaborator will be responsible for determining the price of the product.

Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus Aureus Drugs Market Trends




  • Rise in the prevalence of methicillin-resistant infections is driving the market growth




The market for methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus medications is anticipated to develop in the future due to the rise in the prevalence of methicillin-resistant infections. Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA), which produce infections of the kind that are not responsive to the prescription of at least one of antibiotics, are bacteria which are responsible for MRSA infections. ARBs that intend to kill and make the growth of MRSA bacteria among the mammals and humans are the primary ARBs that have to be administered in the MRSA treatment plan. This could be visualized by Center for Disease Control and Prevention and Prevention or CDC and P, a health agency under the Department of Health and Human Services that reported in November 2022 that hospital acquired Methicillin-resistant S aureus or MRSA infections had increased by 14% in the year. Moreover, the General Institute of Public Health in Denmark reported MRSA disease outbreak among its population in December 2022. The data showed 181 cases of community-acquired infections within the last six months with a history of contact with a hospital or nursing home (higher than 159 of 2020). Consequently a niche market for MRSA drug therapy has emerged with more people affected by such superbug infections reported.


In addition, due to growing aging population, the market of MRSA drugs is expected to grow in the future years. Those who are 65 and over fall into the older people category. To obtain the percentage of dependent population, the number of old and young people is divided into the number of the rest of the population evaluated as a percentage of the total number of people. Consequently, the elderly with weakened immune systems had a tendency of having infections like MRSA. Age causes poor immunity, therefore, the immune system is not the one that it once was and makes them more susceptible to MRSA. A case in point is the UN that forecasts that by October 2022 this group will be one sixth of the global population. This will be the time when the world population would have risen to the 1 billion mark. It will be believed that by 2050 there will be about 1. The UN predicts 5 billion extra older persons over 60 years, versus 1 billion now. An individual 60 years old or above shall be doubled (ii. e. , 2. A number and volume of 33 billion people will be living in the world by 2050. It is predicted that population of 80 years and above will be tripled in the subsequent 30 years and would come to 426 million. Therefore, MRSA drugs are becoming more preferable as the increasing infections among the older number. Thus, driving the Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus Aureus Drugs market revenue.
