ALBANY, NY, Dec 12, 2016: Fungal infection afflicts those with a debilitated immune system or those having foreign materials, including medical devices such as an artificial joint or heart valve lodged in their bodies. Fungal infections can be classified as opportunistic and primary. Opportunistic fungal infection targets patients with a weak immune system and spreads like wildfire affecting other organs and often causing death. Primary fungal infection, on the other hand, can affect those with a normal immune system.
There is a gamut of fungicidal preparations available in the market these days in the form of sprays, creams, solutions, tablets designed for vaginal infections (pessaries), oral medicines, shampoos, and injections. They destroy the cell wall of the fungus thereby causing the fungal cell to die. According to the report, one of the primary reasons for the growth in the global antifungal market is the growing instances of fungal infections in patients with weak immune systems.
Other factors contributing to the growth of the market are the growing unhygienic condition in developed cities, alarming increase in the number of AIDS and cancer-afflicted people who are highly susceptible to fungal infections, and a growing pool of geriatric population. Further, the trend of higher spending on medicines by people all over the world and also increasing expenditure on health in almost every nation in the world have boosted growth of the overall market.
