Segment Analysis

Cytomegalovirus (CMV) retinitis is representing the largest market share in the clinical application segment for the ganciclovir market. As per the latest research citings provided by the World Health Organization (WHO), approximately 40% of the people suffering from AIDS worldwide develop CMV retinitis during the later stage of their lives. The effective diagnosis of CMV retinitis can be performed with CD8+ T-lymphocyte count and ophthalmic screening frequency is based on CD4 count etc. It is basically the inflammation of the retina of the eye which if not adequately treated may lead to permanent blindness. Cytomegalovirus (CMV) pneumonitis is expected to be recording comfortable market growth during the forecast period. Patients who have undergone bone marrow transplant or solid organ transplants are at a greater risk of acquiring CMV pneumonitis. The incidence rate of the disease is 35% after allogeneic transplantation and 6% after autologous transplantation respectively.

Hospital pharmacy is presently dominating the distribution channel segment for the ganciclovir market. Judicious use of ganciclovir is imperative as it possesses teratogenicity properties, hence drug compounding needs to be done under the supervision of a trained hospital pharmacist. Retail pharmacy is gaining huge demand in the developing regions of the world primarily due to proactive initiative by government healthcare authorities to provide subsidized antiviral drugs in retail pharmacy at affordable prices and the ability to cater medicinal requirements of patients residing in remote locations.

North America is currently leading the geography segment for the ganciclovir market. The rising prevalence of cytomegalovirus retinitis infection in the immunocompromised patients primarily drives the ganciclovir market growth in the region. As per the statistics provided by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), approximately 1 in 3 children by age 5 are already infected with cytomegalovirus in the United States. Furthermore, affordable reimbursement scenarios associated with the use of ganciclovir drug formulation further consolidate the market growth in the region. Europe is the second-largest regional segment in the ganciclovir market, primarily due to the rising prevalence of cytomegalovirus (CMV) pneumonitis in patients who have recently received a solid organ or bone marrow transplant in the region. Asia Pacific is anticipated to be the fastest-growing regional segment for the ganciclovir market owing to the rising prevalence of CMV infection in people suffering from AIDS and the flourishing generic drugs market.
