NEW YORK, March 30 announces that a new market research report is available in its catalogue:

Global Antivirals Market 2010-2025

New report explains how this important anti-infective market will develop

In 2009, the global market for antiviral drugs attained total sales of over $28bn. With hundreds of millions of people worldwide suffering from chronic or acute viral infections, there is enormous need for antiviral drugs. It is only in the past few decades that researchers have begun to find ways of combating viruses. Because viruses mutate rapidly and acquire drug-resistance, the antiviral pipeline needs to be continuously replenished with newer, better therapies, our new market study notes.

Global Antivirals Market 2010-2025 forecasts how the global antivirals market will grow and change over the next 15 years. We predict that the market will continue to expand, driven by significant unmet needs, expanding patient populations, better diagnostics and innovative new drugs, including combination therapies. This report offers detailed and extensive coverage of the principal antiviral drugs, with comprehensive sales forecasting at class and brand levels. We also provide up-to-date assessments of the most-exciting antiviral agents in development.

This new study provides a detailed breakdown of the market by disease area, and forecasts how market shares of the main viral therapy classes will shift from 2010 onwards. More-effective and better-tolerated drugs will bring improved therapies for important diseases, including hepatitis B and C, to many patients in future. How will the global antiviral drug market develop from 2010 onwards? Where will the main revenue gains be made, by market sector and country? What are the most-promising R&D pipeline developments? This new report provides the answers that you require.

Global Antivirals Market 2010-2025 also assesses the leading companies, with their performances in the antivirals market predicted. We cover the leading national markets for antiviral agents separately, with comprehensive forecasts for North America, Europe and Asia. In particular, we examine China and India as expanding antiviral markets with large under-met patient needs at present.

Comprehensive analysis of the antiviral pharmaceuticals market

Global Antivirals Market 2010-2025 critically examines that sector through a comprehensive review of primary and secondary information sources. Our new report provides detailed sales forecasts, market share analyses, discussions of pipeline developments and analyses of commercial drivers and restraints. There are over 75 tables and figures included, as well as two original interviews with relevant experts. The result is a comprehensive market- and industry-centred study, with detailed analyses and informed opinion to benefit your work.

Why you should buy Global Antivirals Market 2010-2025

This report gives you the following benefits in particular:

Our research shows that new antiviral drugs have strong potential for commercial success if they are well-tolerated and more effective than existing products. The commercial potential and therapeutic expectations are high for R&D pipeline agents, with rapid technological advances.
