- Sexually transmitted diseases are the most common infectious diseases in the U.S. More than 20 STDs have been identified, affecting more than 13 million men and women each year. The annual comprehensive cost of STDs in the U.S. is estimated to be well in excess of $10 to $18 billion.
- The total current U.S. market for new therapeutics and diagnostics for sexually transmitted diseases in 2000 reached $6.5 billion at the manufacturers' level. The growing numbers of sexually active teenagers and young adults of baby boomers has driven growth in this market. By 2005, it is anticipated that revenues will likely reach $9.4 billion, growing at an average annual growth rate of 7.8%. The total market for therapeutics and diagnostics for sexually transmitted diseases was dominated by the HIV/AIDS in 2000 with 37.1%.
- The products used in diagnosis and treatments of STDs are of extreme importance. Some STDs are declining in occurrence, while a number of fatal and highly uncomfortable diseases are proliferating. In the early to mid 1990s demographics helped cause decreasing incidence of some of these diseases. But the latter part of the century, when the children of baby boomers became sexually active has influenced the pendulum in the other direction.
