Moreover, increasing prevalence of respiratory syncytial virus (RSV), influenza, and hepatitis are projected to drive increasing demand for antiviral drugs over the forecast period. According to WHO, 887,000 deaths happened in 2015 due to hepatitis B and around 257 million patients were living with the disease in 2015. Moreover, according to the Centre for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), approximately 13 million influenza cases were reported in 2019. High cost involved in drug development, growth in the demand for alternative medicines, including homeopathy and naturopathy, drop in the price of U.S. Medicare, competitive dynamics, increasing awareness about the availability of vaccines, and other preventive measures are projected to restrain growth of the market over the forecast period. Growth opportunities in the emerging economies of Asia-Pacific and Latin America, Middle East & Africa (LAMEA) regions and development of broad-spectrum antibiotics are projected to create growth opportunities for key players in the market over the forecast period.
