Favipiravir is an anti-viral medication, which is a pyrazine carboxamide derivative. Chemically, 6-fluoro-3hydroxy-2-pyrazine carboxamide is an anti-viral agent, which selectively and potentially inhibits the activity of RNA dependent RNA polymerase enzyme in the virus. This prevents the viral replication process and hence, the virus is unable to replicate inside the host. The drug is sold under the trade name of Avigan and was originally developed by the Japanese company Fujifilm Toyoma Chemicals Co. Ltd., for the treatment of influenza.

Asia Pacific favipiravir market is expected to grow at an impressive rate during the forecast period. The Asia Pacific favipiravir market is driven by the extensive use of this drug in the treatment of COVID-19 disease as it has similar mechanism of action against the COVID-19 virus it has against the influenza virus. The drug inhibits the activity of RNA polymerase and COVID-19 is unable to replicate. At present, there is no drug available for the treatment of novel coronavirus and it has been identified that favipiravir is helpful in its treatment. The drug is being extensively used in China and Japan in the Asia Pacific region for treatment of COVID-19. A study was conducted in China on 80 people to study the effect of the drug. There was also a control group which was administered lopinavir/ritonavir, the HIV inhibiting drugs which are also being recognized as a potential treatment for novel coronavirus disease. It was observed that viral clearance time was reduced in people who were given Favipiravir and 91% of them had witnessed improved CT scans. Another study conducted in Wuhan illustrated that the drug is effective in shortening the fever duration from an average of 4.2 days to 2.5 days. One more such study was conducted in China wherein 340 COVID-19 infected patients were administered with favipiravir, where they recovered quickly and showed greater lung improvement with no obvious side effects. After such evidence from various studies, China approved the use of favipiravir for the treatment of COVID-19 disease. After this, in March 2021, Italy also started the use of this drug for treating novel coronavirus disease and has started clinical trials also. Additionally, the clinical trials are going on in the U.S., Italy and Japan and as of now it is believed that the drug could come out as a potential treatment for COVID-19. This is expected to positively influence the market growth during forecast period.
