Staphylococcal Infections Therapeutics - Pipeline Assessment and Market Forecasts to 2017

London, United Kingdom (PressExposure) July 27, 2011 -- GlobalData's analysis shows that the Staphylococcal infections therapeutics market grew at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 13.4% from $1.6 billion in 2005 to reach $3.0 billion in 2010. The Staphylococcal infections therapeutics market is set to show moderate growth in the forecast period at a CAGR of 4.2%, from $3.0 billion in 2010 to $4.0 billion in 2017. The moderate growth in the market can be attributed to the increase in the number of immunocompromised patients, along with increased elderly patient population. The entry of new antibiotics with better safety and efficacy than the existing antibiotics to which the patients have developed resistance will also drive the market. The market is expected to witness a slight decline after 2015 due to the patent expiry of major antibiotics, such as Zyvox and Cubicin in late 2014 and mid 2016, respectively. The present marketed products for the treatment ofStaphylococcal infections have significant efficacy and safety standards. However, the segment of the Staphylococcal market comprising of prophylaxis of staphylococcal infections, yet remains an untapped area. Research and development is the key for pharmaceutical companies to bring a novel vaccine to the market to capitalize on this opportunity.

Global Data analysis expects torezolid and cefatroline to receive approval from the US Food and Drug

Administration (FDA) and European Medicines Agency (EMEA) in the near future. These drugs have higher efficacy and safety profiles for the treatment of Staphylococcal infections in comparison with the

currently available drugs in the market, making them promising future players in the Staphylococcal infections therapeutics market. Also, the significant morbidity, mortality and cost aligned with drug resistant Staphylococcal infections will allow the future players in the Staphylococcal infections therapeutics market to justify the relatively premium pricing of the antibiotics in the market.

The current Staphylococcal therapeutics market is strong due to the presence of four branded antibiotics: Zyvox (linezolid), Cubicin (daptomycin), Vibativ (telavancin) and Tygacil (tigecycline). Many generic antibiotics are also present in the Staphylococcal infections therapeutics market, such as Synercid (quinupristin, dalfopristin) and vancomycin. Teflaro, a fifth generation cephalosporin recently launched in the US market is expected to significantly increase the future competition. Pfizer, Theverence, Cubist and Forest pharmaceuticals are the leading players in the global Staphylococcal infections therapeutics market. Zyvox and Cubicin are the current market leaders in the staphylococcal infections therapeutics market and are expected to retain their position for the next three to four years.
