Future of Global Penicillin and Streptomycin Market 2016 - 2024

Press Release   •   Feb 07, 2017 00:48 EST

Penicillin and streptomycin market is witnessing high growth due to increased investment in research & development activity with new product innovations. Moreover, the other regulatory initiatives and creating awareness by various government and non-government organizations to control the bacterial infectious disease among people are also expected to drive the growth of the global penicillin and streptomycin market. However, the biggest challenge faced by the penicillin and streptomycin market is the development of antibiotic resistance in many bacteria. Mutation in bacteria provides immune resistance to antibiotics such as penicillin and streptomycin. Bacteria such as Enterobacteriacea, Gram-negative bacteria, and various Staphylococcus strains are resistant to penicillin. For instance, according to CDC, it is estimated that every year 2 Mn illnesses and 23,000 deaths are caused due to antibiotic resistance. Over consumption, incomplete or improper use of antibiotics lead to resistance to antibacterials. Increasing resistance to antibiotics is the major public health problem worldwide which is the major restraining factor for the growth of the global penicillin and streptomycin market.
