Pneumonia Therapeutics - Pipeline Assessment and Market Forecasts to 2018


Naperville, IL -- (SBWIRE) -- 07/10/2012 -- Pneumonia Therapeutics - Pipeline Assessment and Market Forecasts to 2018 report is an essential source of information and analysis on the global pneumonia therapeutics market, identifying the key trends shaping and driving the market. The report also provides insights on the prevalent competitive landscape and the emerging players expected to significantly alter the market positioning of the current market leaders. Most importantly, the report provides valuable insights on the pipeline products in the global pneumonia therapeutics sector.

GlobalData estimated the pneumonia therapeutics market to be worth $1,988m in 2010. It is forecast to decline at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 1.1% to reach $1,815m by 2018. The market deteriorated during 2005-2010 owing to the patent expiries of major drugs such as Zithromax (azithromycin), Zosyn (piperacillin-tazobactam) and Levaquin (levofloxacin) in 2005, 2007 and 2010 respectively. The decline during the forecast period can be attributed to the expected patent expiry of Avelox (moxifloxacin), Tygacil (tigecycline) in 2014 and 2016 respectively. Zyvox (linezolid) will also lose its patent protection in 2015 in the US and 2016 in Europe and Japan. The late stage pipeline lacks molecules that act against antibiotic-resistant bacterial strains and is therefore unlikely to have a significant impact on the market.
