Dexamethasone has been identified as a “Major Breakthrough” and a possible treatment for COVID-19. A U.K based trial investigating potential Covid-19 treatments illustrated that dexamethasone can be lifesaving for patients who are critically ill and can also reduce death rates. This has led to precipitous demand of dexamethasone as a preventive measure against COVID-19. Government bodies across the globe are adopting several initiatives/strategies to fast-track the development of such products & therapies by providing the necessary funding, grants, permissions, clearances & approvals to meet the needs of the healthcare sector. For instance, in Jun 2020, the U.K government granted world-first approval to dexamethasone for COVID-19 application, hours after groundbreaking data released showcased that dexamethasone can reduce COVID-19 deaths among hospitalized patients requiring oxygen.
However, quality issues in supply chain are one of the major factors hampering the market growth. For instance, Cadila Healthcare a major Indian manufacturer of intravenous dexamethasone has repeatedly landed in trouble with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for serious problems in its production process. According to a letter from the agency, the company said in October 2019 that it would stop producing injectable drugs for the United States. Furthermore, shortage of the product is also expected to hamper the growth of market to certain extent. According to an independent shortage tracking tool run by the American Society of Health-System Pharmacists, intravenous dexamethasone was already in short supply in the U.S. before the recovery results came out. FDA has also listed the drug as “In Shortage”.
