Antibiotics, medicinal plants, superbugs and the coming antimicrobial resistant drugs pandemic : global markets, competitors and opportuninites - 2014 - 2019 Analysis and Forecasts

An Antibiotic is an agent that either kills or inhibits the growth of a microorganism. The world is now facing a grave situation: it is losing the battle against infectious diseases; bacteria are fighting back and are becoming resistant to modern medicine; in short, pharmaceutical drugs don't work. If resistance is allowed to increase, in a few decades people may start dying from the most commonplace of ailments that today can be treated easily. In fact, the ability of organisms to develop resistance to the effects of antimicrobial therapies developed to kill them is potentially the greatest challenge to healthcare in the 21st century.

Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is a form of drug resistance whereby some sub-populations of a microorganism, usually a bacterial species, are able to survive after exposure to one or more antibiotics. Pathogens resistant to multiple antibiotics are considered multidrug resistant (MDR) or, more colloquially, superbugs.

The US and world are in the beginning of an emerging crisis of Antibiotic resistance for microbial pathogens. Epidemic antibiotic resistance has been described in numerous pathogens in varying contexts, including, but not limited to: MRSA (methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus), common respiratory pathogens, including Streptococcus pneumoniae and Mycobacterium tuberculosis, and epidemic increases in multidrug-resistant and, increasingly, truly pan-resistant, gram-negative bacilli.

Why is the level of concern increasing now? It is because the increase in organisms resistant to multiple therapies is now coinciding with the reduction in new therapies coming to market to replace ineffective ones.

Herbal medicine, including medicinal plants, was the only way people could treat infectious diseases until the early 20th century. Since then, pharmaceutical drugs have become the main method for treating bacterial infections. However, the pharmaceutical drug pipeline is almost dry. At the same time, growing consumer awareness of the benefits of herbal medicine, along with a backlash against the exorbitant prices and dangerous side effects of pharmaceutical drugs, have led to a renaissance in the use of medicinal plants. Consumers are starting to focus on keeping healthy rather than dealing with acute situations that require the use of expensive pharmaceutical drugs. Medicinal plants fit perfectly into this new paradigm. And for this reason, their use is forecast to grow dramatically.

This report looks at the use of medicinal plants, rather than Antibiotics, to both treat and prevent bacterial infections.

Specifically, it provides:

• A detailed look at Antibiotics and Antimicrobial Resistant drugs.
• Analysis of the Antibiotics market.
• In-depth examination of Antibacterial Medicinal Plants.
• Analysis of the Medicinal Plants market.

Additionally, profiles of 127 private and public companies involved in the Antibiotics and Medicinal Plants industries as producers, distributors, and retailers are given. The report also includes 32 tables and 32 figures.
