Bacteriophage Therapy Market

Phage therapy or bacteriophage therapy uses viruses to treat pathogenic infections. A virus is also known as phages or bacteria eaters. In phage therapy, the virus only attacks the bacteria and is harmless to the host human, plant, or animals. In simple terms, bacteriophages are the natural enemies of bacteria and the virus kills the target bacteria by injecting its genes into the DNA or RNA of the bacteria, causing no harm to other bacteria. Bacteriophages are the most common biological entities of nature and are quite efficient at fighting & destroying drug-resistant bacteria.

Human Phage Therapy Diseases and Bacteria by Region

Increasing antimicrobial & antibiotic resistance globally, hike in the application of phage therapy among industries such as the food & beverage industry, upsurge in the foodborne diseases globally, and the ongoing extensive R&D are driving the global market of phage therapy. However, phage therapy is still under clinical trials, significant risk of product failure, and company pipelines coupled with the absence of skilled experts, specialists, and professionals are thereby hampering the market growth. In addition, the high cost of bacteriophage therapy is also one of the major factors limiting the worldwide bacteriophage therapy market's growth.

  • Currently, bacteriophage therapy is undergoing clinical trials for the treatment of diseases such as Urinary Tract Infection Bacterial, HIV Infection, Prostate Cancer, Acute Tonsillitis, Primary Immune Deficiency Diseases, Wound Infections, Mild Gastrointestinal, Venous Leg Ulcers, Covid19, Tuberculosis, Cystic Fibrosis, Bacterial Infections, and others, thereby paving ways for phage therapy to replace antibiotics in upcoming years.
  • WHO states that almost 420,000 die every year due to food-borne diseases, and approx. 600 million people (almost 1 in 10 people) fall sick as a result of contaminated food globally.
  • Bacteriophages are proving to be a new frontier in molecular biology owing to their efficiency in treating targeted pathogens without causing much harm to other cells.
  • In 2019, FDA accepted the New Drug Application presented by the physician-scientists of the University of California San Diego School of Medicine who collaborated with AmpliPhi Biosciences Corporation, a biotechnology company, and conducted the first U.S. clinical trial of intravenous bacteriophage-based therapy.

By Region, the global bacteriophage therapy market is segmented into North America, Latin America, Europe, Asia Pacific, and the Rest of the World. Among all the geographies, North America is dominating the market in terms of share owing to factors such as early adoption of new & emerging technologies coupled with expanding volumes of data. However, Asia Pacific is anticipated to witness the highest CAGR During forecast period owing to the increasing patient population and government initiatives to boost the healthcare sector in the region.
