Published on Feb 22, 2021

According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled "Gastrointestinal Therapeutics Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2021-2026," the global gastrointestinal therapeutics market size grew at a CAGR of around 7% during 2015-2020. Gastrointestinal disorders refer to medical conditions that are related to the gastrointestinal tract and the functioning of accessory digestive organs, such as the pancreas, stomach, small and large intestines, gall bladder and rectum. Some of the most common gastrointestinal disorders may include indigestion, constipation, peptic ulcer diseases, and irritable bowel syndrome, which are usually characterized by heartburn, stomachache, bloating, vomiting, and nausea. Gastrointestinal therapeutics is a branch of medicine that aids in the treatment of such ailments by reducing gastric acidity, improving digestion and properly regulating water flow in the gastrointestinal tract. These therapeutics include various over-the-counter (OTC) and prescription drugs, such as laxatives, antacids, antiemetics, antidiarrheal agents, and antiulcer agents.

We are regularly tracking the direct effect of COVID-19 on the market, along with the indirect influence of associated industries. These observations will be integrated into the report.

Global Gastrointestinal Therapeutics Market Trends:

The global market is primarily driven by the rising prevalence of gastrointestinal diseases across the globe. Several ailments, such as constipation, diarrhea and gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), are commonly caused due to the shifting lifestyle preferences and the changing dietary patterns of the masses that have led to an increase in the consumption of unhealthy food. This, along with the rising healthcare expenditure, is providing a boost to the uptake of gastrointestinal therapeutics on the global level. Moreover, there has been a considerable rise in the geriatric population that is more prone to develop these gastrointestinal conditions. This, coupled with the easy availability of OTC gastrointestinal drugs through organized online and offline pharmacies, is expected to create a positive outlook for the market. The increasing usage of biosimilars and cellular therapies for the treatment of gastrointestinal disorders that offer personalized and targeted treatment to the patients is also creating a positive outlook for the market. Some of the other factors contributing to the market growth include the rising utilization of regenerative medicines, extensive research and development (R&D) activities, increasing numbers of clinical trials with accurate results to offer innovative therapies to the patients, and the significant developments in the overall healthcare infrastructure. On account of the aforementioned factors, the market is expected to witness moderate growth during 2021-2026.
