Market Scenario

Yeast infection is also known as candidiasis. Candidiasis is an infection caused by numerous types of yeast called Candida. The most common type of yeast causing infection is Candida albicans. This yeast is normally present on the skin, in the intestines and vagina, but under normal conditions it doesn’t cause infection. However, sometimes it can develop into an infection of the mouth, vagina or skin due to weak immune response, unhygienic conditions, and other factors.

Yeast infection can occur due to many reasons such as weak immunity, unhygienic conditions, and presence of a conducive environment for the growth of the associated microbes. In addition to infants, people suffering from diabetes, obesity, hypothyroidism, inflammatory disorders are also prone to catching yeast infection. The global yeast infection market is majorly driven by increasing prevalence of autoimmune diseases, continuously increasing geriatric population, and increasing number of patients suffering from HIV. According to the Joint United Nations Programme on HIV and AIDS (UNAIDS), by the end of 2015, approximately 36.7 million people worldwide were suffering from HIV/AIDS , out of which 1.8 million were children below 15 years. Moreover, rising demand for antifungal drugs and government support for research & development have fuelled the market growth. However, side effects of the treatment may hinder the growth of the market. The global yeast infection market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.2% during the forecasted period.
