 Hepatitis B Therapeutics Market Size to grow by USD 469.5 million between 2024-2028

According to a research report “ Hepatitis B Therapeutics Market” by Application (Drugs, Vaccines) Geography (North America, Europe, Asia, Rest of World (ROW))- Global Forecast to 2028 published by Technavio, the market size is estimated to grow by USD 469.5 million, at a CAGR of  3.27% during the forecast period. In the realm of public health, the prevalence and manifestation of Hepatitis B (HBV) infection exhibit significant age-related variations. Infants below the age of 5 and immunosuppressed adults typically exhibit no symptoms, with approximately 90% of infected infants developing chronic infections. Conversely, 30%-50% of individuals older than 5 years present with specific symptoms. Notably, the risk of chronic infection escalates with age at infection. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), 90% of infected infants become chronically infected, compared to a mere 2%-6% of adults. Tragically, up to 1 out of 4 of these chronically infected infants succumb to the disease within a short timeframe. Moreover, HBV-infected pregnant women can transmit the virus to their infants at birth, emphasizing the importance of vaccination for newborns to mitigate this risk.

Research Analysis Overview

The Hepatitis B therapeutics market encompasses vaccination services for hepatitis B prevention, drugs for treating chronic infections, and diagnostic services for detection and follow-up of the disease. Hepatitis B is a viral liver infection caused by the Hepatitis B virus (HBV), which can lead to chronic diseases such as cirrhosis and hepatocellular carcinoma. Transmission occurs through poor sanitation conditions, infected mothers during childbirth, and contact with infected body fluids, including those from infected needles, infected sexual partners, and illicit drugs. Hepatitis B can also co-exist with hepatitis C, and both viruses can cause liver damage and drug resistance. Diagnosis involves clinical trials, laboratory testing expenses, and biomarker-based testing. Recombinant vaccines are available for newborns and infected mothers to prevent prenatal transmission. Chronic hepatitis B can lead to liver damage and cirrhosis, making early diagnosis and treatment crucial. Drug resistance and co-infection with other factors like alcohol can complicate treatment. The market for Hepatitis B therapeutics is expected to grow due to the increasing burden of chronic diseases and the need for effective treatments.

Market Research Overview

The Hepatitis B and C therapeutics market encompasses the development and commercialization of effective drugs for the treatment and prevention of these deadly liver diseases. Hepatitis B and C are major global health concerns, particularly in areas with unsafe health care and unsafe injections, which are common sources of infection from blood-borne pathogens like the hepatitis B virus (HBV) and hepatitis C virus (HCV). Hepatitis B can lead to chronic infection, prenatal transmission, and even hepatocellular carcinoma, while acute and chronic hepatitis C can cause inflammation, liver damage, and cirrhosis. Effective drugs for hepatitis B include nucleoside analogue therapies, immunosuppressant therapy, and chemotherapy. For hepatitis C, antivirals such as direct-acting antivirals (DAAs) are the primary treatment. Prevention measures include vaccination services, clean syringes, and counseling for medical conditions like alcohol consumption and illicit drug use. Dicerna Pharmaceuticals is a leading player in the hepatitis therapeutics market, developing RNA therapeutics for the treatment of chronic hepatitis B. The burden of these diseases is significant, with an estimated 257 million people living with chronic hepatitis B and C worldwide. Newly infected individuals and chronically infected patients require ongoing follow-up, diagnosis, and treatment, which can be expensive due to laboratory testing and drug resistance. Awareness regarding hepatitis is crucial for prevention, with vaccination services like the 3 antigen HBV vaccine and combination vaccines like HEPLISAV B playing a vital role. Prevention measures also include avoiding risk factors like poor sanitation conditions and unsafe injections. Pharmacy professionals and online, retail, and hospital pharmacies play a critical role in ensuring access to these essential drugs and vaccines. Biomarker-based testing and liver infection screening are also important for early diagnosis and effective treatment.
