Global Candidiasis Drugs Market Highlights over 2022 – 2030

The global candidiasis drugs market is estimated to grow at a CAGR of ~6% over the forecast period, i.e., 2022 – 2030. Candida is a yeast, that causes infection in the mucosal layer. The growth of the market can be attributed to the growing cases of yeast infection across the world, backed by poor immunity, sanitation practices, and others. The increasing health awareness, availability of anti-fungal drugs, and growing investment in development of new drugs, is estimated to boost the market growth. Candida is usually present inside the skin, in parts lined with mucous, such as the mouth, throat, gut, and vagina, without causing any problems. Infections are caused when the yeast grows out of control, due to high amount of sugar in blood, high humidity, or poor hygiene. Diabetes is a major factor for candidiasis infection, as raised blood sugar promotes yeast activation. The growing incidences of diabetes is estimated to boost the market growth over the forecast period. According to the report by the World Health Organization (WHO), 422 million people worldwide suffer from diabetes, in countries of all income levels, and around 1.6 million deaths are directly attributed to it each year.

The market is segmented by disease type into oral, vaginal, cutaneous, invasive, and others, out of which, the vaginal segment is anticipated to hold the notable share in the global candidiasis drugs market over the forecast period on the back of the increasing cases of vaginal candidiasis, backed by lack of sexual health awareness and hygiene amongst individuals, especially in the middle and low-income countries. According to the data by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), about 20% women who have candida in the vagina, do not notice any symptoms.

Vaginal candidiasis is not a sexually transmitted disease. It is caused due to poor hygiene, hot and humid environment around the vulva, sharing toilets, and even due to drinking less amount of water. Mild infections are often overlooked, due to the embarrassment and taboo associated with diseases in the private parts, resulting in severe infection and even hospitalization. This is a major factor expected to drive the segment growth. Pregnancy and hormonal contraceptives are also a major cause of candidiasis in the vagina.
