March 28, 2023 | Healthcare

According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled "Peptic Ulcer Drugs Market by Product Type (Proton Pump Inhibitors, Potassium-Competitive Acid Blocker (P-CAB), Antacids, H2-Antagonists, Antibiotics, Ulcer protective), Ulcer Type (Gastric Ulcer, Duodenal Ulcer, and Others), Distribution Channel (Hospital Pharmacies, Retail Pharmacies, Online Pharmacies), and Region 2024-2032," the global peptic ulcer drugs market size reached US$ 4.8 Billion in 2023. A peptic ulcer is an open sore that develops in the lining of the stomach that is caused due to inflammation, radiation therapy, frequent oral and injectable administration of aspirins, and anti-inflammatory drugs. It is associated with abdominal pain, discomfort, nausea, vomiting, weight loss, bloating, belching, and loss of appetite. It is diagnosed through a combination of medical history, physical examination, and diagnostic tests, such as endoscopy, blood and stool tests, and biopsy. It is treated using medications and drugs, such as antibiotics, proton pump inhibitors (PPI), H2 antagonists, antacids, potassium-competitive acid blockers (P-CAB), and ulcer protectives, which aid in reducing the body aches, minimizing acid secretion, and protecting the stomach from digestive juices.

Global Peptic Ulcer Drugs Market Trends:

The surging prevalence of peptic ulcers and the growing geriatric population that is susceptible to developing these medical disorders represent one of the major factors driving the demand for peptic ulcer drugs and treatment around the world. Moreover, the rising number of individuals suffering from obesity, unhealthy lifestyle habits, and increasing instances of stomach cancer are some of the other factors favoring the growth of the market. In addition, governments of numerous countries are initiating campaigns to spread awareness about the benefits of early diagnosis of the disease. This, coupled with the expanding number of clinical studies and trials to develop new treatments for peptic ulcers, is contributing to the market growth. Apart from this, the easy availability of various generic drugs for treating and preventing stomach and intestinal ulcers and gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) via offline and online retail channels is strengthening the growth of the market. Besides this, significant improvements in the healthcare infrastructure and diagnostic technologies are creating a positive outlook for the market. On account of the aforementioned factors, the market is anticipated to reach a value of US$ 6.1 Billion by 2032, exhibiting a CAGR of 2.65% during 2024-2032.
