Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) also known as acid reflux is a condition wherein the contents from the stomach, or stomach acid flows back into the esophagus, which leads to a series of complications. Symptoms include heartburn, vomiting, chest pain, bad breath etc. Various factors lead to acid reflux such as obesity, smoking, alcohol, and hernia etc. Acid reflux can be managed by lifestyle changes, but some people need medication or surgery. Very often symptoms such as heartburn can diagnose GERD, but additional testing is necessary.
The global reflux testing product market is anticipated to grow significantly during the forecast period. There are many lifestyle related factors such as alcoholism, aerated drinks, consumption of unhealthy food, stress etc that can cause GERD. This is one of the key factors responsible for the growth of the global reflux testing product market. Incidence of acid reflux is projected to grow with increase in geriatric population in regions such as Asia Pacific, Europe, and North America. According to National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases, about 20 percent of people in the United States suffer from GERD. This ever increasing pool of patients is a crucial factor projected to drive the growth of the global reflux testing product market during the forecast period. Limited acceptance of GERD devices and high cost are some of the factors that are likely to restrain the growth of the market
The global reflux testing product market can be segmented into product type, disease indication, end users, and region. Based on product type, the global reflux testing product market is segmented into catheter based testing products, capsule based testing products, reflux testing probes, and others.
