The fosfomycin market was valued at USD 434.5 Mn by 2019. Rising prevalence of urinary tract infection among the adult population worldwide primarily drives the fosfomycin market growth. The growing incidence of acute prostatitis in the geriatric population throughout the globe further accentuates the fosfomycin market growth.

Fosfomycin Market

Fosfomycin was developed in 1969 from the bacteria Streptomyces fradiae, but now it is developed synthetically by chemical reaction. It has a broad-spectrum activity against both the gram-positive and gram-negative bacteria especially against the E.coli and E. faecalis strain. It needs to be taken under medical supervision in order to prevent the occurrence of multidrug resistance and other side effects such as nausea, vomiting, vaginal yeast infections, etc.

Segment Analysis

Urinary tract infection is presently spearheading the clinical application segment for fosfomycin market. Constant rise in urban industrialization in developing countries has resulted in a significant increase in water and soil pollution. Repeated exposure to causative agents such as E.coli and E. faecalis in slum areas further increases the occurrence of urinary tract infection. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), it is estimated that approximately 50% to 60% of the global women population is subjected to urinary tract infection during their lifetime. Prostatitis is estimated to register rampant market growth in the near future owing to the increasing geriatric population suffering from acute prostatitis due to urine leakage in the prostate gland. 

Hospital pharmacy is currently dominating the distribution channel segment for fosfomycin market. It is imperative to understand that noncompliance with drug posology can cause multidrug resistance to E. coli and E. Faecalis, hence precise compounding by hospital pharmacists in accordance with doctor’s prescription is mandatory. Retail pharmacy is anticipated to be the fastest-growing distribution channel during the forecast period on account of its ability to provide drugs at affordable cost price and increasing demand for generic medicines worldwide. 

North America is currently leading the geography segment for fosfomycin market. The rising prevalence of urinary tract infection in the adult population primarily drives the fosfomycin market growth in the region. According to the latest statistics provided by the National Institute of Health (NIH), approximately 25% of the women population in the United States are suffering from urinary tract infection per year. Additionally, the affordable reimbursement scenario for the fosfomycin drug formulations further bolster the market growth in the region. Europe is the 2nd largest regionals segment for the fosfomycin market. The rising prevalence of prostatitis in the male population in the East European region determines the fosfomycin market growth in the region. As per the latest research citings provided by the European Association of Urology the prevalence rate of chronic prostatitis in the male population ranges from 4.5% to 9% having a recurrent rate of 50% with the increasing age. Asia Pacific is set to be the fastest-growing regional segment for fosfomycin market. Increasing urbanization has led to water and soil pollution thereby increasing the exposure to E.coli and E. faecalis which causes the occurrence of complicated urinary tract infection. Furthermore, the establishment of a flourishing generic drug market further propels the fosfomycin market growth in the Asia Pacific region.
