Key Drivers and Restraints of Global Hydroxychloroquine & Chloroquine Market

  • Increase in the export and import of hydroxychloroquine and chloroquine across regions, especially due to COVID-19 pandemic, rise in prevalence of malaria, rheumatoid arthritis, and other autoimmune diseases is projected to drive the global hydroxychloroquine & chloroquine market. Import of hydroxychloroquine & chloroquine drugs in the U.S., Germany, Italy, Spain and other countries in Europe is likely to propel the global market. Increase in incidence of COVID-19 since December 2019 across the globe is a major factor boosting the demand for hydroxychloroquine & chloroquine. According to statistics, there were around 3.45 million confirmed cases of COVID-19 globally as of April 2020, which drives the demand for hydroxychloroquine and chloroquine. On March 28, 2020, the FDA issued emergency use authorization for distribution of hydroxychloroquine and chloroquine to patients suffering from COVID-19 who could not be part of clinical trials.
  • According to HHS, Sandoz donated 30 million doses of hydroxychloroquine sulfate to the Strategic National Stockpile and Bayer donated 1 million doses of chloroquine phosphate for patients to manage COVID-19 condition. These are considered potential drugs in treating COVID-19 patients. All the above factors are likely to propel the global hydroxychloroquine & chloroquine market. However, shortage of supply of hydroxychloroquine and chloroquine is projected to restrain the demand for the drugs across the globe.
