High Awareness Quotient Solidifies Market Prospects
Awareness regarding digestive health is a nascent phenomenon that is expected to be a major driver for the market. Healthcare centers in the developed regions have commenced numerous awareness campaigns to inform and educate people about the importance of digestive health. This factor, along with the amendments made by various governments to include digestive health in its health policies, is projected to uptick demand within the market. The upper-middle class is showing a propensity to resort to better healthcare facilities, which is another important standpoint for market growth. The gastric acid levels maintained in the body due to the intake of digestive healthcare products is conducive to the digestion of food. This has propelled a number of medical practitioners to recommend the usage of digestive healthcare products. Furthermore, the popularity of dietary supplements and a rise in the income levels of the people is expected to collectively fuel the demand for these products.
Regional Disparities Could Disrupt Market Growth
Although, the developed nations have succeeded in establishing a strong customer base for digestive healthcare products, the underdeveloped economies are still deprived of their pros. This poses a threat to the global market by bundling a large customer base away from market players. Moreover, the low awareness quotient in the relatively backward regions could hinder market growth. Nevertheless, the concerted efforts of governments and international healthcare entities would keep soaring the prospects of the market. Furthermore, the increase in disposable income in Japan and APEJ is also expected to offer stupendous growth opportunities.
