These are mostly communicable diseases spread from viruses, bacteria, fungi, and other organisms. Such infection causing micro-organisms include viruses, bacteria, fungi, viroid, and macro parasites. Infections thus caused can be classified depending on the type of organism causing infection and the symptoms and medical signs shown by host. High prevalence and incidence rates of infectious diseases, especially viral infection, and newer drug introductions have resulted in increase in growth of global anti-infective drugs market. These factors are projected to drive demand for anti-infective drugs in the near future. There are several global players having well-established R&D with increased focus upon development of innovative drugs against multidrug resistant organisms.
The global anti-infective drugs market market growth is driven by the rise awareness among the population about various infectious diseases and the availability of reimbursements to infection treatment in various countries have played a significant role in driving the market.

On the contrary, ome of the major restraints to this market are high investment costs in R&D, as major importance is given to multi-drug resistant drug, where several companies product fail in the early-stage or clinical stage of development. Also, shortage of resources in healthcare facilities particularly in emerging markets, restricts the growth of this market.
COVID-19 was may have a complex long-term impact on anti-infective resistance. Coordinated strategies at the individual, health-care and policy levels are urgently required to inform necessary actions to reduce the potential longer-term impact on anti-infective and on access to effective antimicrobials.
