Global Gastrointestinal Drugs Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

Gastrointestinal Drugs are medications that are used to treat disorders of the gastrointestinal system. This includes conditions such as constipation, diarrhea, and nausea. These drugs can help to relieve symptoms and improve quality of life for those affected by these conditions.

Prescription Gastrointestinal Drug:

Prescription gastrointestinal drug is a medication that is given to the patient for treating digestive disorders. The most common types of prescription drugs used to treat digestive diseases are antacids, anti-diarrheal, and anti-gas drugs. Other medications such as Imodium (Imodium AIT) and Kaopectate (Icopec) are also used in some cases.

OTC Gastrointestinal Drug:

OTC gastrointestinal drug is used for the treatment of various stomach disorders such as indigestion, heartburn, and acid reflux. OTC drugs are usually available in tablet or capsule form and can be administered to children as well. The global OTC gastrointestinal drug market was valued at USD 4.5 billion in 2015 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of XX% over the forecast period.

Application Insights:

The chronic gastritis segment dominated the global market in 2017. The growing geriatric population, coupled with increasing cases of lifestyle-induced diseases such as obesity and high blood pressure levels, is expected to be a major driving factor for this segment over the forecast period.

Functional dyspepsia is anticipated to be the fastest-growing application during the forecast period owing to rising awareness about gastroenteric drugs among healthcare professionals and patients. In addition, increasing incidences of Helicobacter pylori infection and nonalcoholic Steatohepatitis (NASH) are likely to contribute towards growth during this period. NASH is characterized by fatty liver degeneration with inflammation present in both alcoholic and nonalcoholic individuals; it has been estimated that up to 80% of patients suffering from diabetes may develop NASH over a span of 10 years.

Regional Analysis:

North America dominated the global market in 2017. The region is expected to maintain its position during the forecast period due to increasing prevalence of chronic diseases, such as functional gastrointestinal disorders and peptic ulcers. In addition, rising adoption of innovative therapies for treatment of these conditions is anticipated to drive regional growth over the forecast period.

Asia Pacific is expected to witness lucrative growth over the coming years owing to improving healthcare infrastructure and economic development in emerging countries like China and India. Furthermore, growing awareness about digestive health among consumers will also support regional market expansion during the same period.

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing incidence of gastrointestinal diseases: The global incidence of gastrointestinal diseases is increasing due to the changing lifestyle and dietary habits. This is expected to drive the demand for gastrointestinal drugs in the coming years.
  • Growing awareness about preventive measures: There is a growing awareness among people about preventive measures for gastrointestinal diseases. This is likely to boost the demand for gastrointestinal drugs in the near future.
  • Technological advancements: The development of new and innovative technologies has led to the introduction of novel and advanced drugs for treating various types of gastrointestinal disorders. This is expected to create opportunities for growth in this market during the forecast period.
