Prime determinants of growth
Increase in demand for HCQ as a potential treatment option amidst the Covid-19 pandemic and surge in cases of malaria drive the growth of the global hydroxychloroquine market. However, ban in several countries due to lack of study data and fatal side-effects of the medicine hinder the market growth. On the other hand, repurposing of HCQ as an anti-cancer drug creates new opportunities in the coming years.

The API segment to maintain its leadership status during the forecast period
Based on product type, the API segment accounted for the highest market share in 2019, contributing to more than half of the global hydroxychloroquine market, and is estimated to maintain its leadership status during the forecast period. This is due to its efficacy in diagnosis, prevention, cure, treatment, and mitigation purposes. However, the tablet segment is projected to manifest the fastest CAGR of 8.4% from 2020 to 2027, owing to ease in availability and cost-effectiveness.
The malaria segment to maintain its highest contribution throughout the forecast period
Based on disease, the malaria segment held more than two-fifths of the total market share of the global hydroxychloroquine market in 2019, and is estimated to maintain its highest contribution throughout the forecast period. Moreover, this segment is expected to witness the fastest CAGR of 29.8% from 2020 to 2027. This is attributed to rise in prevalence of malaria in the African region and widespread usage as an anti-malarial drug. The report also analyzes segments including rheumatoid arthritis, lupus erythematosus, coronavirus, and others.
Asia-Pacific to offer lucrative opportunities, North America to grow steadily

Moreover, this region is expected to register the highest CAGR of 8.2% from 2020 to 2027. This is due to presence of major market players in countries such as India and China and increase in demand for the medication with high incidence of malaria in South-east Asian countries. However, North America would grow at a CAGR of 4.4% during the forecast period.
