Market Overview:

The global oral rehydration salt market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.5% during the forecast period from 2018 to 2030.

Global Oral Rehydration Salt Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

Oral rehydration salt is a mixture of sodium chloride, potassium chloride, and glucose. It is used to prevent and treat dehydration caused by diarrhea.


Tablets are small pieces of material made up of gelatine, starch, and calcium carbonate. They can be used as a drug or supplement in the form of multivitamin tablets, herbal supplements or mineral supplements. The most common types of tablets used by consumers include effervescent (baking soda) and non-effervescent (immodium) tablets.


Powders are dehydrated food products that have a high content of minerals and vitamins. They are used in oral rehydration salts to enhance their absorption properties. Powdered foods and beverages can be easily consumed by the geriatric population as well as patients suffering from chronic illnesses such as cancer, malaria, etc., thereby increasing its application scope in the market for oral rehydration salt over the forecast period.

Application Insights:

Based on the application, the global market has been segmented into adult diarrhea treatment, childhood diarrhea treatment, and others. The other applications include acute kidney failure (AKF) management and sea sickness prevention. In 2017, the adult diarrhea treatment segment dominated the overall market with a revenue share of over 60%. This is due to a large patient base suffering from chronic diseases such as diabetes that require oral rehydration therapy for effective management.

The AKF management segment is expected to witness significant growth during forecast years owing to an increase in number of patients suffering from acute kidney failure across the globe. Moreover, increasing awareness about this disorder among healthcare professionals will boost product demand during estimated period.

The other segments including sea sickness prevention.

Regional Analysis:

Asia Pacific dominated the global oral rehydration salt market in 2017, accounting for a share of over 40.0%. Increasing prevalence of diarrhea-related disorders and rising awareness about oral rehydration therapy are some factors expected to drive the regional market growth. According to WHO, every year around 39 million children under 5 years of age suffer from diarrhea worldwide. In addition, increasing healthcare expenditure by governments and private agencies is also anticipated to boost the demand for ORS in this region. For instance, according to data published by World Vision International’s annual survey in 2017; every year it costs USD X billion globally just on diarrheal diseases alone that impacts both child and adult population across all regions including developed countries like U.K., U.S.

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing awareness about the benefits of Oral Rehydration Salts (ORS) among people, especially in developing countries, is expected to drive the market growth.
  • Rising prevalence of diarrhea and other waterborne diseases is also anticipated to fuel demand for ORS products over the forecast period.
  • Growing number of research studies highlighting the advantages of ORS over intravenous therapy is likely to boost adoption rates across regions.
  • Introduction of new and innovative products by key players is projected to create opportunities for market growth during the forecast period.
