Asia and Africa are the largest markets for tuberculosis drugs, as these regions have the highest prevalence of TB.  There are many initiatives taken to control the TB increasing cases. The United Nations’ Millennium Development Goals have framed various strategies to reduce TB prevalence and death rates by 2015, which can be achieved by WHO’s Stop TB Strategy. According World Health Organization, in 2006, 61% out of 2.5 million new smear positive cases with DOTS, and are all the new smear cases on the year, and the treatment was successful in 85% cases. The estimated global incidence rate of tuberculosis shown decline rate by 0.6% in 2005 and 2006. In 2006, the incidence rate of tuberculosis became stable in the Europe and is declining gradually in the other WHO countries. World Health Organization has an approximation that the occurrence of tuberculosis and death rates are declining faster than the incidence rate.

High funding for research and development and clinical trials drugs to boost the tuberculosis drugs market

There was around US$ 6.6 billion revenue accessible for tuberculosis care and prevention in many of the low and middle-income countries in 2016, out of which 84% was from domestic sources. However, national tuberculosis program (NTPs) in low income countries linger to depend on international donors or foreign healthcare agencies to fund them approximately 90%. Investments in low income countries and middle income countries declined by US$ 2 billion to US$ 8.3 billion, which was needed in 2016. There were many enhancements needed in overall healthcare financing to curb new tuberculosis cases proportionally boosting tuberculosis drugs market. Government expenditures on healthcare in specific to tuberculosis in 2014 were less than the World Health Organization set a benchmark of at least 6% of gross domestic product in around 150 countries. Private expenditures surpassed 45% of total healthcare expenditures in tuberculosis in 46 countries, which also includes 11 of the 30 high tuberculosis burden countries. Presently, there are around 13 vaccine candidates in clinical development, which include trial drugs for prevention of tuberculosis infection and trial drugs for prevention of tuberculosis disease in people with Latent Tuberculosis Disease. According to WHO, at least US$ 2 billion investment is needed every year for tuberculosis research and development. In stark contrast, capital investment during 2005–2014 was reported to be US$ 0.7 billion annually. Infusion of investments in research and development would significantly improve the tuberculosis drugs market outlook.
