Global Antibacterial Drugs Market 2015-2019 is a new research report added by under the Pharmaceutical category. The analysts forecast global antibacterial drugs market to grow at a CAGR of 1.06% over the period 2014-2019. Antibacterial drugs are chemical compounds used to treat infections caused by bacteria either by killing or inhibiting the growth of bacteria. The term antibiotic is often used synonymously with an antibacterial. However, antibiotics are agents that work against microorganisms such as bacteria, fungi, and parasites but are not effective against viruses. The term antibiotic was originally coined to refer to any compound of microbial origin, which is antagonistic to the growth of the microbe. Antibacterial acts via various mechanisms such as the inhibition of cell wall synthesis, the inhibition of nucleic acid synthesis, the disruption of the cell membrane, and the inhibition of protein synthesis. They can be bacteriostatic or bactericidal in nature, i.e., they either block vital processes in bacteria, kill the bacteria, or halt them from growing. Antibiotics that affect a wide range of bacteria are called broad-spectrum antibiotics (e.g., amoxicillin and gentamicin). Antibiotics that affect only a few types of bacteria are called narrow spectrum antibiotics (e.g., penicillin).
