The global peptic ulcer drugs market size reached US$ 4.63 Billion in 2022. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the market to reach US$ 5.96 Billion by 2028, exhibiting a growth rate (CAGR) of 3.03% during 2023-2028. The increasing prevalence of peptic ulcers, especially amongst the geriatric population and shifting consumer inclination toward various medications over invasive surgeries represent some of the key factors driving the market.
Peptic ulcers, or duodenal ulcers, are open sore that gradually develops and triggers defects in the lining of the stomach, small intestine, and lower esophagus. They are usually caused due to inflammation, radiation therapy, frequent oral and injectable administration of aspirins, and anti-inflammatory drugs. If peptic ulcers are left untreated, they might initiate severe pain in the mid- or upper-body parts, weight loss, internal bleeding, and severe blood loss, which require hospitalization. Currently, they can be treated with various drug types, including proton pump inhibitors (PPI), H2 antagonists, antibiotics, potassium-competitive acid blockers (P-CAB), antacids, and ulcer protectives. These medications reduce body aches, provide more time to heal, minimize acid secretion, offer resistance against bacterial infections, and protect the stomach from digestive juices. As a result, peptic ulcer drugs are extensively utilized by healthcare practitioners for the treatment of gastritis, gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), and duodenal ulcers.
Peptic Ulcer Drugs Market Trends:
The increasing prevalence of peptic ulcers, especially amongst the geriatric population, represents one of the key factors driving the market growth. Moreover, unhealthy lifestyle habits and rising instances of stomach cancer, is resulting in the growing number of individuals suffering from peptic ulcers. This, along with the shifting consumer inclination towards various peptic ulcer-curing drugs over invasive surgeries, which, in turn, is contributing to the market growth. In line with this, as compared to surgical procedures, several steroidal anti-inflammatory medications are minimally invasive, more affordable, and enable faster recovery while ensuring reduced blood loss. Additionally, the ongoing approvals of peptic ulcer drugs and several government investments in pharmaceutical companies for the formulation of medications are supporting the market growth. This is further influenced by the continuous conduction of clinical trials for new drug formation to overcome complications and the ineffectiveness of present drugs in the market. Moreover, the increasing consumer awareness regarding the benefits of cost-effective peptic ulcer drugs and their easy availability across multiple distribution channels is favoring the market growth. The advent of artificial intelligence (AI)-based pathology testing technology to perform diagnostic and forensic operations is also propelling the market growth. Other factors, such as extensive research and development (R&D) activities to enhance product efficacy and the increasing investments in the development of the over the counter (OTC) medications for treating peptic ulcers, are positively impacting the market growth.
