Increase in incidence of chronic diseases of liver, heart, kidneys, and pancreas; and blood disorders have augmented the demand for glucocorticoids such as hydrocortisone.

Patients are more aware and proactive about their health and are willing to seek a physician's advice at an early stage. Increase in per capita disposable income is encouraging people to spend more on healthcare facilities, which in turn fuels the global hydrocortisone market. Advertisements have increased public visibility of new treatments, thereby generating interest among chronic patients.
