Global Market Size, Forecast, and Trend Highlights Over 2024-2036

Anthrax Treatment Market size is poised to reach USD 2 Billion by the end of 2036, growing at a CAGR of 8% during the forecast period, i.e., 2024-2036. In the year 2023, the industry size of anthrax treatment was USD 720 Million. The reason behind the growth is impelled by the growing population of animals across the globe owing to immigration and births, seasonal or other environmental changes, or it can be fueled by mechanisms that depend on density. For instance, the number of cattle worldwide increased from roughly 937 million in 2021 to over 920 million in 2022.

The growing awareness is believed to fuel the anthrax treatment market growth. Raising public awareness among households in remote areas has led to an increase in the ability of the workers to receive emergency medical care and recognizing the need for quick medical attention in the event of symptoms critical to the success of the anthrax treatment process.

Anthrax Treatment Market: Growth Drivers and Challenges

Growth Drivers

  • Rising Burden of Zoonotic Disorders – Bacillus anthracis, a gram-positive rod, is the source of the zoonotic infection anthrax, which are facultative anaerobic microbes that produce toxins and are encapsulated. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), zoonoses account for around 60% of newly discovered infectious illnesses that are documented worldwide.
  • Growing Rate of Biological Attacks- One of the most likely agents to be employed in a biological strike is the bacteria that produces anthrax, Bacillus anthracis which has been employed in biowarfare and bioterrorism since 1914, and a tiny quantity is all that is needed to infect a big number of individuals.
  • Increasing Agriculture Industry- Nearly every continent has seen reports of anthrax, and agricultural areas with neutral or alkaline, calcareous soils are the most typical locations for the disease which is acknowledged on a global scale as a significant public health and economic issue. For instance, globally, the agriculture industry is expected to expand by over 5% between 2024 and 2028, reaching a market size of around USD 4 trillion by that year.
  • Surging Prevalence of Rare Diseases- In the industrialized world, anthrax is quite uncommon; it is more prevalent in Africa and central and southern Asia resulting from breathing in bacillus anthracis spores.


  • Lack of Awareness - One of the key elements contributing to the illness outbreaks is cattle owners' ignorance of anthrax which has resulted from inadequate surveillance, monitoring, and disease reporting; lack of public knowledge; unfettered mobility; inefficient management; and vaccine regimens. An inadequate understanding of anthrax and how it spreads is a major contributing factor in human cases which might result from contact with contaminated raw meat or blood and the slaughter of sick animals.
  • Moreover, the recurrence of anthrax outbreaks in various parts of the world calls for increased awareness since it is imperative to remain vigilant to avoid, identify, and contain outbreaks.
  • Complexity of diagnosis may increase the need for specialized laboratory tests causing delays in the treatment
  • Exorbitant cost of treatment is expected to limit its accessibility in lower-economic regions.

Anthrax Treatment Segmentation

Anthrax Type (Cutaneous, Inhalation, Gastrointestinal, Injection)

The Inhalation segment in the anthrax treatment market is estimated to gain a robust revenue share of 44% in the coming years owing to the growing bioterrorism. The infectious condition known as inhalation or respiratory anthrax is brought on by breathing in the bacterium's spores which is the most lethal type of the illness and frequently results in death even with therapy.  Early warning signs and symptoms include Flu-like symptoms, such as sore throat, low temperature, exhaustion, and muscular pains, that last for a few hours or days, and within two to five days, a high fever, a fast heartbeat, and severe dyspnea will manifest. These symptoms could last for two or three days before seemingly disappearing for one or two days, and may then recur, causing severe dyspnea, dyspnea breathing, and shock.

The accumulation of B. anthracis spores in the lung alveoli is caused by inhaling anthrax which is more lethal and challenging to cure owing to these factors, anthrax inhalation is seen as a possible bioterrorism risk since it is the most dangerous kind, and if treatment is delayed, it can be fatal. For instance, the leading cause of death for a population that is exposed and unprotected to anthrax is inhalation, with an untreated mortality rate of more than 95%. Particularly, Inhaling anthrax nearly usually results in death without medical attention, and the mortality rate with current therapy is over 40%.

Distribution Channel (Hospitals Pharmacies, Retail Pharmacies, E-commerce, Drug Stores)

The hospitals pharmacies segment in the anthrax treatment market is set to garner a notable revenue share shortly. The important infrastructure for preventing an anthrax attack includes hospitals and acute care medical institutions since physicians can treat anthrax patients with a variety of treatments, such as antitoxin and antibiotics which is considered important because if one healthcare worker becomes incapacitated, it might have a detrimental effect on the care of dozens or more patients.
