The top three emerging trends driving the global tinea pedis treatment
market according to Technavio healthcare
and life sciences
research analysts are:

  • Increased funding for antifungal research
  • Increased focus on combination therapies
  • Advent of novel therapies

Increased funding for antifungal research

The growing cases of infectious diseases such as bacterial infection,
fungal infection, and viral infection are encouraging vendors in the
market to enhance their R&D efforts in this therapy area. As drug
development is a cost-intensive process, various government and
non-governmental institutes are providing financial assistance in the
development of antifungal drugs.

Institutions such as Generating Antibiotics Incentives Now and
Qualified Infectious Disease Product are providing funding for the
development of novel antifungal drugs. Such funding encourages the
research institutes and companies to invest more in antifungal drug
research, leading to market growth
says Sapna Jha, a lead
analyst at Technavio for infectious
and rare diseases

Increased focus on combination therapies

A current trend in the global tinea pedis treatment market is the use of
combination therapies for treating foot related fungal infections. It is
observed that a combination of systemic and topical treatment increases
the chances of removing the fungus when compared with single therapies.

For instance, the combination of oral terbinafine with topical
terbinafine and 10% urea ointment has proven to be the most successful
method of treating tinea pedis. Often, the combination of topical and
systemic therapies and surgery is used in treatment. Also,
non-pharmacological approaches such as laser treatment or mechanical
treatment are used in combination with topical and systemic therapy.

Advent of novel therapies

The global tinea pedis treatment market lacks effective and approved
drugs that can eliminate side effects related to foot fungal infections.
The absence of an effective treatment for onychomycosis, a fungal
infection that involves the nail matrix, nail bed, and nail plate can
hinder the market. The limited availability of current therapies coupled
with large patient pool can provide significant opportunities for
vendors to discover new drugs for the market.

For instance, Viamet Pharmaceuticals’ VT-1161 is a novel oral
agent formulated for the treatment of onychomycosis. The drug is
currently in phase II and has shown high potency in in vitro studies.
The approval for new drugs will overcome the side effects that limit the
use of current antifungals such as terbinafine and fluconazole
