Fungi are quite different from bacteria in physical characteristics like size, cellular structure, and chemical composition. Fungi are considered as a "higher beings" when it is compared with bacteria, viruses, and another small micro-organism. It may contain one nucleus or multiple nuclei surrounded by a specific cell wall. However, fungi life cycle may vary from simple to complex and it may reproduce by both asexual and sexual reproduction. Because of the distinct feature, fungi are considered to be much more complex than bacteria. Fungi are also able to adjust and reproduce in abnormal environments such as mammalian tissue. In particular, yeasts is a class of fungi which readily adapts to the human environment and organisms such as Candida species are normal inhabitants of the skin, gastrointestinal tract, female genital tract and urine.

The antifungal drug market is majorly driven by increasing the prevalence of fungal infection across the globe. Furthermore, increasing awareness is a major key factor which is expected to promote the growth of antifungal drug market. Moreover, torpid lifestyle and the compromised immune system can affect antifungal drug market. However, huge penetration of conventional medication coupled with the traditional approach of treatment is the key restraining factor for the growth of anti-fungal drug market. Nonetheless, ongoing research and development in developing anti fungal drugs are likely to bring growth avenues in the future market.

Based on drug type, the global market of the antifungal drug is segmented into five types: echinocandins, azoles, ployenes, allylamines and others. The echinocandins represent the first new class of antifungal drug which was introduced for more than 15 years. This drug acts by inhibiting the cell wall synthesis of fungi (by inhibiting ?-D-glucan). Their potency includes low toxicity, rapid fungicidal activity against most isolates of Candida spp. and predictable constructive kinetics allowing once a day dosing. The first licensed echinocandin product is caspofungin acetate. In terms of revenue, Azole derivatives were the leading drug type segment in antifungal drug market in 2015.
