There are three major types of hepatitis condition – HAV, HBV, and HCV. HCV is a major public health problem that attacks the liver and leads to inflammation. Certain drugs, toxins, heavy alcohol use, bacterial and viral infections can cause hepatitis infection. Hepatitis C infection can bring both acute and chronic hepatitis disease. Approximately, 80% of the patients get chronically infected with Hepatitis C disease. Hepatitis C Virus (HCV) spreads through the blood of an infected individual by the use of shared needles or supplies used to infuse drugs. Vaccines are available only for Hepatitis A and Hepatitis B viruses. Research into the development of a vaccine for Hepatitis C is under way.

    Factors such as rise in injection drug users, increase in awareness, presence of unmet need, and anticipated launch of new drugs are expected to drive the market growth during the forecast period. The market is witnessing the emerging trend of pediatric combination vaccines, which protect against multiple causative agents and thereby reduce the costs gain in packaging and administering individual vaccines. The markets in India, Brazil, China, and Russia are also expected to grow at a rapid pace during the forecast period as the prevalence of hepatitis in these countries is high.

    The major drivers of the hepatitis drugs market include the second generation DAAs of Olysio and Sovaldi. Second generation DAAs are more efficacious and have lesser adverse effects. Currently, the market players are developing IFN therapies for the treatment of Hepatitis C. These therapies are intended to be all-oral regimens. The HCV drugs segment comprised more than 84% of the total market share in 2016. A major focus in this segment is expected to drive the growth of the hepatitis drugs market in the future.
