A peptic ulcer is a sore formed in the inner lining of the stomach, damaging the inner lining of the stomach, esophagus, and duodenum. This condition may be caused due to the excess usage of pain-relieving medicines or the infectious bacterium called helicobacter pylori (H. pylori). This medical condition can further lead to severe problems, such as holes in the stomach, and serious damage to the stomach, the lower part of the esophagus, and the upper part of the duodenum. Thus, drugs are used to treat such conditions to avoid such serious complications.
The global peptic ulcer drugs market revenue is growing at a rapid pace. It is estimated to show significant revenue growth during the projected period. The revenue growth of this market can be attributed to the increasing prevalence of peptic ulcers, the growing aged population, and the rising advancements in the product. Furthermore, the rising R&D activities, development of a strong product pipeline, and growing adoption of triple therapy are also augmenting the market revenue growth. Additionally, increasing government and private initiatives and funding/investments further fuels the expansion of the peptic drug market. However, challenges, such as the adverse effects of peptic ulcer drugs, and fluctuation in prices, can hinder the market revenue growth to some extent.
