Aminoglycosides and macrolides together will be the fastest growing segment throughout the forecast period 2017-2025.
Factors contributing to the growth of this segment are increasing incidences of antibiotics related drug resistance in bacterial conjunctivitis patients and technological advancement with effective clinical trials conducted analyzing the safety and efficacy of the antibiotic drug formulations at different concentrations resulting in immediate relief due to immediate onset of action.
In 2016, North America held the largest revenue share mainly due to factors such as rising prevalence of bacterial conjunctivitis, affordable reimbursement scenario and presence of developed research and healthcare institutions. Asia Pacific will be the fastest growing market throughout the forecast period 2017-2025, majorly due to factors such as high competition due to presence of existing and budding biopharmaceutical manufacturers involved in producing products for bacterial conjunctivitis treatment in this regions and supportive regulatory environment for bacterial conjunctivitis products and increasing disposable incomes.
