Sores that develop on the lining of stomach, esophagus, and intestines are called peptic ulcers. Symptoms of peptic ulcers include vomiting, burning stomach pain, bloating, and food intolerance. These can be of three types: gastric ulcers, duodenal ulcers, and esophageal ulcers. Some of the causes of peptic ulcers are stomach infections caused by H. pylori, alcoholism, stomach cancers, usage of anti-inflammatory drugs such as aspirin, and smoking. Peptic ulcers, if untreated, can cause severe complications such as internal bleeding and perforation in the stomach lining. The global peptic ulcer market is anticipated to grow at a rapid pace during the forecast period. Lifestyle related factors such as aerated drinks, alcoholism, consumption of fatty food, and stress can cause peptic ulcers.
In terms of competitive landscape, the global peptic ulcer drugs market is a highly fragmented one. The fragmentation of the global market is due to the presence of several notable players operating in the market space. Prominent players operating in the global peptic ulcer market are GlaxoSmithKline plc, Pfizer, Inc., and AstraZeneca plc, among others. These players have adopted strategies such as mergers & acquisitions, cost effective products, and collaborative partnerships to maintain a significant position in the global market.
There are several factors that are responsible for the overall development of the global peptic ulcer drugs market. One of the key driving factors for the market growth has been the growing prevalence of the peptic ulcers across the globe. Unhealthy eating and lifestyle habits are the key reasons behind the rising cases of peptic ulcers, and hence the growth of the market. Another important factor driving the development of the global peptic ulcer drugs market has the increasing preference of patients to opt for peptic ulcer curing drugs instead of undergoing surgeries. Moreover, growing focus on research and development activities to find new therapies, primarily sponsored by changing governmental and healthcare policies are also playing an important role in pushing up the growth of the global peptic ulcer drugs market.
However, there are some factors that might impede the growth of the global peptic ulcer drugs market in the coming years of the forecast period ranging from 2020 to 2030. One of the most prominent restraining factor for the market growth is expected to be the side effects caused by these peptic ulcers. In addition to this, the production rate of these drugs have been inefficient. This too may act against the growth of the global peptic ulcer drugs market in coming years of the forecast period. Another important factor that might affect the growth of the market is the changing pricing policies related to these peptic ulcer drugs.
In terms of geographical segmentation, there are five key regions of the global peptic ulcer drugs market. These regions are North America, Latin America, Middle East and Africa, Asia Pacific, and Europe. Of these, currently the global market for global peptic ulcer drugs market has been dominated by the regional segment of North America. The growth of the regional segment is primarily driven by the matured healthcare market in the region. In addition to increased spending on the development of new and innovative therapeutics, research and development activities are also responsible for driving the growth of the North America region. After North America, Europe is the next big regional segment of the global peptic ulcer drugs market. One key reason for the development of the Europe market is the presence of key players in the region along with considerable spending on the development of new drugs.
