Global Herpes Zoste Drug Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

Herpes Zoste Drug is a prescription medication used to treat shingles (herpes zoster), a viral infection that causes a rash. Herpes Zoste Drug is also used to prevent recurrent herpes zoster infections.


Acyclovir is a medication used for the treatment of viral infections such as chickenpox, measles, and shingles. It’s most commonly prescribed to people suffering from cold sores or fever blisters. The drug is also used in the treatment of Herpes Zoster (HZ), commonly known as shingles. Acyclovir speeds healing by reducing pain and itching associated with HZ lesions along with decreasing inflammation & swelling caused by them.


Amenamevir is a new drug developed to treat patients infected with Herpes Zoster (shingles), which is also used as a preventive measure. It works by decreasing the ability of virus-specific immune cells, known as T cells, to respond to viral infections. Amenamevir was granted fast track and breakthrough therapy approval by the FDA in 2015 and 2016 respectively for shingles and postherpetic neuralgia treatment.

Application Insights:

Based on the application, the global market is segmented into a clinic, hospital and others. The clinic application segment dominated the overall market in 2017 owing to increasing awareness about availability of effective drugs for treatment of diseases such as chickenpox and herpes. Moreover, introduction of new products with fewer side effects is also expected to fuel product demand in this segment over the forecast period.

The hospital application segment was estimated to be one of the largest revenue-generating segments owing to rising prevalence rates of chronic diseases such as HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis and cancer that increase patient admissions in hospitals worldwide. In addition, an increase in number of research studies evaluating these drugs efficacy against various cancers will also boost product demand within this segment over next eight years or so.

Regional Analysis:

North America dominated the global market in 2017. The presence of a large number of manufacturers and suppliers coupled with high awareness levels among people about zoste drugs are some factors driving the market in this region. In addition, increasing prevalence of target diseases is also expected to drive demand for these drugs over the forecast period. For instance, according to CDC estimates published in 2016, around 6 million people suffer from genital herpes in U.S.

Asia Pacific is expected to be fastest growing region during the forecast period owing to rising healthcare expenditure.
