The global Antivirals market shows a moderate growth in the pharmaceutical market and is expected to increase further due to increase in the diseased population, increase in awareness level and launch of new drugs with better efficacy. Some major patent expiries are expected during the forecast period, such as for Sustiva, Combivir, Tenofovir, Telbivudine, Tamiflu and Relenza (by 2017). The patent expiries of these blockbuster drugs will trigger generic competition in the antivirals therapeutics market, making it more competitive. The late stage pipeline drugs such as Rilpivirine, Vicriviroc, Elvitegravir, Inavir and Rapiacta are expected to enter the market, which will positively impact the market.
