SAN FRANCISCO, November 24, 2016 /PRNewswire/ --

The global antifungal drugs market was

valued at USD 10.7 billion in 2015 and is expected to reach a value of USD 12.6 billion by 2025. The increasing incidence of fungal infections worldwide is the key contributing factor for the
growth of the antifungal drugs market in the coming years. Rising adoption of immunosuppressive and antineoplastic agents, prosthetic devices and grafts, and broad-spectrum antibiotics have resulted in the increasing incidence of fungal infections in the recent years.

The growing geriatric population prone to infectious diseases and higher prevalence of chronic conditions, including HIV and cancer, are further contributing toward the rising demand for antifungals to treat opportunistic fungal infections over the forecast period. The large demand for these fungistatic agents is due to the nature of fungal infections, which are difficult to diagnose, yielding high mortality and morbidity rates.
