Type Insights

Based on type, the market is classified into allergic, chronic, and invasive aspergillosis. The allergic segment dominated the market with a share of over 49.07% in 2022. The allergic segment's dominance in the aspergillosis treatment market can be attributed to its higher prevalence and milder disease presentation compared to other types. Conditions such as ABPA, affecting asthma, and cystic fibrosis patients, result from an allergic reaction to aspergillus antigens in the lungs, leading to respiratory symptoms and inflammation.

Studies indicate ABPA likely affects 1% to 15% of cystic fibrosis patients and about 2.5% of adults with asthma, with an estimated 4.8 million people worldwide affected. A significant proportion of ABPA cases may progress to chronic pulmonary aspergillosis (CPA), estimated to be approximately 400,000 cases. Heightened awareness and early detection of allergic respiratory diseases have further bolstered the prominence of this segment in the market.

The CPA segment is anticipated to witness the highest CAGR of 4.74% during the forecast period. This growth can be attributed to several factors, such as an increasing prevalence of chronic aspergillosis cases, advancements in diagnostic techniques leading to early detection, and the development of targeted therapies to address this persistent form of fungal infection.

Drug Class Insights

Based on drug class, the market is classified into antifungal drugs and others. The antifungal drug segment dominated the market with a share of over 79.52% in 2022 and is anticipated to witness the highest CAGR of 4.44% during the forecast period. The dominance of antifungal drugs in the market can be attributed to their effectiveness against infections and widespread utilization as a primary treatment option. Healthcare providers' focus on developing improved and targeted antifungal therapies is expected to sustain the segment's prominence, driving overall market growth. F2G, a key player in the market, has achieved a significant milestone with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration's acceptance of its New Drug Application (NDA) for Olorofim in December 2022, a groundbreaking antifungal drug tailored for invasive fungal infections, including aspergillosis. This development marks a significant advancement in antifungal therapies and offers promising prospects for patients battling life-threatening fungal infections in the market.

The antifungal drug segment is sub-segmented into azoles, echinocandins, polyenes, allylamines, and others. The azoles sub-segment dominated the market in 2022, it is a class of antifungal medications, exhibiting broad-spectrum activity against aspergillus species, making them effective for various aspergillosis infections. Their efficacy and relatively low toxicity have established them as a first-line therapy for both invasive and non-invasive cases. With good tolerability and ease of administration, azoles are preferred by healthcare providers and patients alike, especially due to their oral formulations, enabling convenient self-administration at home, and reducing the burden on patients and healthcare facilities during prolonged treatment.
