Hepatitis C is a liver disease caused by the hepatitis C virus causing both acute and chronic hepatitis; approximately 55–85% of hepatitis C affected persons develop chronic HCV infection. For the purpose of the study hepatitis C treatment market is classified on the basis of drug type such as interferons, ribavirin and direct-acting antivirals (DAA). Interferons and ribavirin are generally given in combination to increase the effectiveness of ribavirin against hepatitis C. It is estimated that DAA class will show the highest market growth during forecast period due to safety and effectiveness over the previous treatment approach. DAA directly act on the virus by inhibiting certain enzymes and proteins which are necessary for replication of the HCV virus and thus cause fewer side effects. Newly approved medications such as zepatier (elbasvir /grazoprevir), Epclusa (sofosbuvir /velpatasvir), Mavyret (glecaprevir and pibrentasvir) and Vosevi (sofosbuvir, velpatasvir and voxilaprevir) are expected to show significant market growth during the forecast period.
