DUBLIN, May 10, 2010 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of GlobalData's new report "Candidiasis - Drug Pipeline Analysis and Market Forecasts to 2016" to their offering.

Candidiasis - Drug Pipeline Analysis and Market Forecasts to 2016, which provides the key data, information and analysis on the candidiasis market. The report provides a comprehensive overview of the annualized market data from 2001 to 2009, and forecast seven years to 2016. The research also includes market characterization, opportunities, the unmet needs associated with candidiasis, a competitive assessment, the product profiles of the major marketed products and the promising drugs in the pipeline, an overview of the discontinued projects, the implications for the future market competition, and the key players in the candidiasis market.

The Candidiasis Market is Forecast to Grow at a Moderate Rate Between 2009 and 2016 Author forecasts the global candidiasis market to grow at 5.9% annually for the next seven years to reach $2,386m by 2016. It was valued at $1,592m in 2009.

This moderate growth will primarily be supported by an increase in the disease incidence rate and the launch of two promising pipeline molecules during the forecast period. The growth of the candidiasis market during the forecast period will not be much higher than the rate at which it grew between 2001 and 2009.

This is primarily attributed to two reasons. First, the candidiasis market is dominated by generic products which generate less revenue per unit volume sold.

Second, the pipeline of the candidiasis market is weak with a small number of molecules across different stages of development. However, the continued uptake of the currently marketed products and the launch of some of the late-stage pipeline molecules will sustain market growth during the forecast period.

Current Treatment Options with High Efficacy and Safety are Successful in Meeting Market Demand Author's analysis has found that the current competition in the candidiasis market is strong. The current candidiasis market landscape has more than 10 marketed products. The marketed products fall under three different classes: azoles, polyenes and echinocandins. Polyenes and azoles are some of the oldest classes of drugs being used in the treatment of different types of Candida infection. The drugs from these classes are quite successful in meeting the therapeutic needs of the market and have first rate efficacy and safety profiles. Moreover, these drugs are available in different dosage forms and have high patient compliance rates. Echinocandins are available in an intravenous dosage form and have medium to high efficacy in the treatment of serious Candida infections such as invasive candidiasis, esophageal candidiasis and systemic candidiasis. Furthermore, all the products are able to cure the Candida infection in most of the cases. Because the current treatment options offer high clinical and safety standards and successfully meet the market demands, the unmet need in the candidiasis market is low.
