Segment Analysis

Influenza is reigning the treatment segment for the favipiravir market. According to the latest research citings presented by the World Health Organization (WHO), influenza affects approximately 5 to 10% of the global population. In countries having temperate climates influenza, viral infection is at its peak during the winter season, the majority of cases are influenza B, viral infection. Tropical climate supports the spread of influenza A viral infection. Poor vaccination programs and lack of self-hygiene are the primary factors for the repeated occurrence of influenza infection in the developing countries. Ebola is a viral infectious disease which affects humans and non-human primates, the four species which are known for its infections in humans are Sudan, Zaire, Bundibugyo and Taï of which the Zaire species is the most lethal. The fatality rate associate with ebola is 70% and a single patient has the capacity to infect 1.5-2.5 people. Currently the whole world is suffering from COVID-19 infection, China being the epicenter, large fatality rate, and lack of vaccine increases the demand for favipiravir as a promising drug for the treatment of COVID-19 infection in the near future.

Hospital pharmacy is dominating the distribution channel segment for the favipiravir market. Favipiravir is a potent antiviral drug showing therapeutic efficacy against RNA viral infections hence accurate dose compounding needs to be done by the hospital pharmacist in order to prevent the occurrence of potential toxicity and side effects associated with the drug. The retail pharmacy will be gaining strong market growth during the forecast period on account of the rising prevalence of viral infection and the ability to cater to the medicinal requirement of patients residing in remote locations.

Asia Pacific is the clear leader in the geography segment for the favipiravir market. The major contributing factor responsible for its market dominance is the rising incidence of influenza A. viral infection in South East Asian region. The tropical climate, high humidity, and monsoon climate are the favorable breeding grounds for seasonal influenza in the Asia Pacific infecting patients across all age groups. Furthermore the presence of key players such as Fujifilm Toyama Chemical Co., Ltd, Zhejiang Hisun Pharmaceutical Co., Ltd., Cipla Limited, Beximco Pharmaceuticals Limited, etc further accentuate the market growth in the region. Europe is in the Northern Hemisphere with a cool temperate climate which is teeming grounds for the rampant spread of influenza B. viral infection during the autumn season. Central Africa has the most reported cases of Ebola infection in the world which increases the demand for the favipiravir market in the region. North America will be the fastest-growing segment during the forecast period on account of the rising incidence of seasonal influenza infection and the constant rise in the number of people suffering from COVID-19 infection.
