Antimalarial Drugs Market Significant Growth, In-depth Analysis, Future Trends and Forecast 2030

The demand for antimalarial drugs is on rise, owing to surge in malaria across the globe.

Malaria is a deadly infectious disease, which is transmitted through the bite of female Anopheles mosquito. The infection spreads to liver cells where the parasites multiply at a fast rate to invade red blood cells. These parasites further grow and mature in red blood cells to form merozoites, which are released upon the rupture of red blood cells to invade other blood cells. This leads to fever, tiredness, vomiting, headaches, impaired consciousness, multiple convulsions, and abnormal bleeding. Hence, the drugs which are employed in the treatment of malarial infection are called as antimalarial drugs. There are different types of antimalarial drugs such as quinine, chloroquine, proguanil, mefloquine, pyrimethamine, and others available in the market.

The global antimalarial drugs market was valued at $711,360 thousand in 2018, and is expected to reach $1,019,396 thousand by 2026, registering a CAGR of 4.6% from 2019 to 2026.
