Anti-infective drugs or agents are capable of acting against an infection, by inhibiting the spread of an infectious agent or by killing the infectious agent. The infection causing agents include fungi, virus, bacteria, and macro parasites. Factors such as increase in the number of patients suffering from infectious diseases, extensive research and development efforts pertaining to the development of new drugs, rise in the new drug approvals, and growing awareness among the individuals related to the infectious diseases are expected to accentuate the market growth during the forecast period.
