Over the Counter (OTC) Drugs Market Trends and Drivers:
The global over-the-counter drugs market is primarily driven by the increasing product usage for treating minor ailments. Besides this, the rising adoption of OTC drugs, such as proton pump inhibitors (PPIs), antacids, and histamine-2 (H2) blockers, to relieve and prevent acid indigestion or heartburn is another major growth-inducing factor.
Moreover, with the growing consciousness among individuals regarding the significance of self-care and surging healthcare costs, there has been a shift toward self-medication to treat minor symptoms and illnesses before seeking professional help. In line with this, the rising sales of painkillers and nutritional supplements amid the recent coronavirus disease (COVID-19) outbreak has augmented the demand for OTC drugs.
Additionally, key market players are expanding their customer base and geographical presence by expanding their product portfolio. Other factors, including the increasing approvals from regulatory bodies to switch prescription medicines to OTC drugs, expanding pharmaceutical industry, aging population, and easy product availability via online channels, are also anticipated to propel market growth.
