Antibacterial drugs are categorized into eight major classes: tetracyclines, β-Lactams, phenicols, macrolides, quinolones, aminoglycosides, sulfonamides, and miscellaneous antibacterials. Accounting for a 58% share in 2014, β-Lactams dominated the overall antibacterial drugs market. While quinolones held a 17% share that same year, this class of drugs is anticipated to register negative CAGR by the end of 2023. Growing geriatric population and rising demand for therapies against bacterial infections is likely to boost the miscellaneous antibacterials segment.

The strong pipeline in the antibacterial drugs market comprises Omadacycline (PTK-0796), SYM-1219, Zempia (E-101), Delamanid, Ozenoxacin, SPL7013, Eravacycline, Actoxumab / Aezlotoxumab (MK-3415A), Solithromycin (CEM-101), Ciprofloxacin/Fluocinolone Acetonide, Arikace, Carbavance (meropenem/RPX7009), RHB-105, Delafloxacin, Surotomycin (MK-4261), Cadazolid, and Plazomycin. Future commercialization of these antibacterial drugs is projected to boost the global market.

Geographically, the global antibacterial drugs market is divided into North America, Latin America, Europe, Asia Pacific, and Rest of the World. In terms of revenue, Asia Pacific dominates the antibacterial drugs market and is projected to also be the fastest developing regional segment by 2023. The growth in this region can be attributed to a number of factors including rising incidence of bacterial infections such as TB and MRSA, strong presence of generic and active pharmaceutical ingredient (API) manufacturers, growing purchasing power of the population, rise in geriatric population, developing healthcare infrastructure, and expanding population base.
