Hepatitis C virus is a small positive-strand RNA virus. This virus is a leading cause of liver diseases such as hepatocellular carcinoma and liver cirrhosis. Globally direct-acting antivirals (DAAs) have been proven to be safe and effective medicine against hepatitis C virus. DAAs helps to prevent life threatening complications, that are generates after hepatitis C virus attack on human body.
Increasing product development and launch of new direct-acting antiviral medicines across the globe is a major factor driving growth of the global direct-acting antiviral medicines market. For example, AbbVie Inc. is developing ABT-493 (a protease inhibitor) and ABT-530 (an NS5A inhibitor). Also, Gilead Sciences, Inc. is engaged in clinical trial and it FDC of sofosbuvir and GS-5816 (an NS5A inhibitor) are in phase III clinical trial.
Moreover, increasing prevalence and incidence of hepatocellular carcinoma and liver cirrhosis is another factor supporting growth of the target market. According to World Health Organization (WHO), in 2015, viral hepatitis resulted in an around 1.34 million deaths globally, of which 400,000 were due to cirrhosis and liver cancer caused by chronic hepatitis C infection.
Furthermore, increasing support from government authorities as well as from social healthcare associations to spread awareness about hepatitis C virus and treatments to cure it is expected to propel growth of the global direct-acting antiviral medicines market in the forecast period. For instance, in 2016, World Health Assembly endorsed the Global Health Sector Strategy on viral hepatitis 2016–2021 for elimination of hepatitis B and hepatitis C by 2030.
However, poor access to direct-acting antiviral medicines for individuals who are suffering from chronic infection in emerging countries is a major factor restraining growth of the target market. Also, side effects of DAAs is expected to hamper growth of the global direct-acting antiviral medicines market up to a certain extent.
North America market dominates the global direct-acting antiviral medicines market in terms of revenue contribution as compared to that of markets in other regions.
