    Market Drivers

    The cryptococcosis market is mainly spurred by an increasing number of HIV patients across the globe. Also, it has been deduced that the death of 15% of HIV patients is mainly due to cryptococcosis. HIV patients are immunocompromised and possess a weak immune system, which offers an easy entry for such fungus. In underdeveloped countries, people are not diagnosed with HIV early owing to a lack of diagnostic tests, although efforts are being made by several government agencies to eliminate HIV. Furthermore, the rising prevalence of cryptococcosis, availability of advanced treatment, and developments in diagnosis & treatment of cryptococcosis bolster the market growth in the coming years.

    Covid-19 Impact Analysis

    The outbreak of COVID-19 moderately affected the cryptococcosis industry as the pandemic resulted in a surge in the number of patients. This resulted in shift of healthcare facilities mainly towards COVID-19 care as well as lesser funds for HIV care, thereby affecting the market growth.

    Segments' Analysis

    Treatment Trends

    Based on treatment, the cryptococcosis market has been divided into amphotericin B, flucytosine, fluconazole, and others. The flucytosine segment held a significant market share in 2020. Flucytosine is a water-soluble, small molecule that is a nucleoside analog antifungal drug that acts by disrupting pyrimidine metabolism in the fungal cell nucleus. It is primarily administered as the first-line treatment in combination with other antifungal medications, thereby augmenting the market growth.

    Regional Trends

    By region, the North American Cryptococcosis market accounted for the largest share in 2020 and is expected to grow at a significant CAGR during the review period. The cryptococcosis market growth can be ascribed to increasing HIV cases, well-established healthcare infrastructure, growing medical spending, strong funds for R&D to eradicate HIV, the surging prevalence of cryptococcosis, and rising technological advancements in the region.

    The Asia-Pacific Cryptococcosis market is expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the review on account of the growth of the major end-use industries. This growth is mainly attributed to the rapid growth of the pharmaceutical & biotechnological sectors, the presence of a large number of HIV patients, increasing awareness regarding AIDS, and the strong proliferation of healthcare infrastructure.
