An antibiotic is a compound or a substance that fights bacterial infections and kills or slow down their growth. The
antibiotic market is witnessing high growth due new product innovations and higher investment in R & D activity.
Moreover, the other regulatory concerns to control the antibiotic resistance problem are also expected to drive the
antibiotics market.
The demand for antibiotics is expected to reach USD 44.68 billion by 2016. Since, 2005 this market is seen to grow
at an annual rate of 6.6% until 2011. There are many companies manufacturing antibiotic these days and there are
many other antibiotics present in the market such as aminoglycoside antibiotics and it covers about 79% of the global
demand. Moreover, the other antibiotics such as penicillin has 8%, tetracyclines 4%, erythromycin 7%, streptomycin
1% and chloramnphenicol has 1 % market share in the global antibiotic market.
There are two factors that would play an important role in the growth of the antibiotic market in the near future, i.e.,
generic competition and antibiotic resistance. The antibacterial drugs market is expected to witness restricted growth
as the patent of the major players will expire. This is the reason they are engaged in the development of anti-MRSA
treatment. Thus, new drugs are also expected to emerge in the market as a result of this. Secondly, antiobiotic
resistance is one of the major factors diminishing the popularity of these drugs and reducing its demand continuously.

About Antibiotics
Antibacterial drugs are chemical compounds used to kill or inhibit the growth of bacteria. The term
"antibiotic" is often used synonymously with antibacterial; however, the term "antibiotic" was originally
coined to refer to the antibacterial compounds of microbial origin. Antibacterial acts via various mechanisms
such as the inhibition of cell wall synthesis, the inhibition of nucleic acid synthesis, the disruption of the cell
membrane, and the inhibition of protein synthesis. It can be bacteriostatic or bactericidal in nature.
Antibiotics are medicines that are used to treat infections caused by bacteria (e.g., respiratory tract
infections). Antibiotics work against microorganisms such as bacteria, fungi, and parasites but are not
effective against viruses. Antibiotics either block vital processes in bacteria, kill the bacteria, or halt them
from growing. Antibiotics that affect a wide range of bacteria are called broad spectrum antibiotics (e.g.,
amoxicillin and gentamicin). Antibiotics that affect only a few types of bacteria are called narrow spectrum
antibiotics (e.g., penicillin).
