Market Drivers

The global peptic ulcer drug market is driven by the increasing prevalence of peptic ulcers worldwide. An ulcer is developed when the gastric acid in the stomach damages the stomach’s protective lining. This leads to open sores on the stomach resulting in bleeding and causing severe and intolerable pain. Drugs that aids in the reduction of gastric secretion, such as PPIs, H2 receptor antagonists, antibiotics against H. pylori infection, and acid neutralization agents, such as antacid, are preowned for treating peptic ulcers. However, these medicines are frequently administered in combination to acquire a greater effect. Moreover, the demand for peptic ulcer drugs is rising due to the increase in the usage of NSAIDs.

Market Restraints

The numerous ADRS associated with using peptic ulcer drugs, such as PPIs, are expected to restrict the market growth during the forecast period. It includes the increased risk of gastroenteritis, nutritional deficiencies (vitamin B12, magnesium), bowel upset, gastric ulcers, and diarrhea. The side effects of using anticholinergic drugs include dry mouth, urine retention, and constipation. Moreover, patent expiration and strict government regulations are responsible factors that are anticipated to restrict the growth of the global market for peptic ulcer drugs during the forecast period.

Market Opportunities

An increase in the strong pipeline of new drugs and rising R&D activities is estimated to boost market growth, creating numerous opportunities in the global market. The increasing prevalence of peptic ulcers worldwide is propelling the major market players to invest more in research & development activities. This involves the launch of a new drug for peptic ulcer treatment. These strategies are expected to impact the peptic ulcer drugs market’s expansion positively.

Additionally, conducting clinical trials for investigational drugs to overcome the complications associated with the existing drugs in the market is another significant factor expected to boost market growth over the forecast period.
