Antibiotics are also known as antibacterial or antimicrobials. It is defined as a group of medicines used in the treatment of infections caused by germs-bacteria and certain parasites by inhibiting the growth of microorganisms or killing them.The antibiotics market is segmented on the basis of action, drug class, spectrum of activity, and route of administration.The action segment is segmented into cell wall synthesis inhibitors, protein synthesis inhibitors, DNA synthesis inhibitors, RNA synthesis inhibitors and mycolic acid inhibitors. RNA synthesis inhibitors segment is growing with the highest CAGR of 6.1% in the forecast period. Adoption of several antiviral drugs inhibiting transcription and reverse transcription process are expected to promote the growth of the market. The drug class segment is segmented into cephalosporin, penicillin, fluoroquinolone, macrolides, carbapenem, aminoglycosides, sulfonamides and other.
