The gastrointestinal disease treatment market is estimated to represent a global market of USD 42.6 billion by 2019 with growth rate of 5.8%.

Market Dynamics

Gastrointestinal disorders are functional disorders that affect the sections of GIT track and its accessory organs such as the pancreas, salivary glands, and liver. This disorder includes chronic, acute, recurrent as well as functional disorders which cover wide range of GIT track diseases. Some of the most common GIT disorders include Crohn’s disease, GIT cancers, inflammatory bowel disease, irritable bowel syndrome, diarrhea, dyspepsia, and others. The continuous increase in the prevalence of these diseases is expected to support the market growth to great extent.

As per the World Health Organizations, colon cancer caused more than 694 000 deaths in 2014. A report published by the American Cancer Society also stated that around 100,000 colon cancer cases were diagnosed in the U.S. alone, which is expected to increase by 62% till 2030. Such high prevalence rate will upsurge the demand for GIT therapeutics, leading to driving the market growth. Additionally, the emergence of novel therapeutics such as biosimilar is considered to be the most important driver for this market. Biosimilar contains identical active pharmaceutical ingredients which offer effective treatment for the GIT disorders such as inflammatory disorders and others. Rise in the usage of biologics for the treatment of GIT disorders is also anticipated to encourage the market growth.

Furthermore, according to the various research studies, the social and economic burden of GIT disorders are enormous. For instance, in December 2015, the article published by an online publication “Gastroenterology” stated that gastrointestinal disease is the source of substantial burden in terms of mortality, morbidity, and cost to the U.S. population. Therefore, various organizations such as the World Journal of Gastrointestinal Pharmacology and Therapeutics (WJGPT) are actively devoted to encouraging scientists to develop novel therapeutics to cure this disease, providing the healthy platform for the market growth.

However, patient expiry for some of the blockbuster therapeutics hampers the market growth to some extent. Humira that accounted for more than 55% share of biologics used for the treatment of gastrointestinal diseases, expired in 2016. This has caused a steep decline in the revenue generated by gastrointestinal therapeutics.

Types Takeaway

The market is majorly categorized as Branded and Generics. The branded segment accounted for the largest share of the total market, captured more than 72.56% share in 2019. Branded segment is further categorized as Proton Pump Inhibitors, Enzyme Replacement Therapies, Amino-salicylates, Antacids, Anti-emetics, Anti-diarrheal, Biologics, and Others. Of these, proton pump inhibitors recorded the highest revenue i.e. USD 4.8 billion in 2019.

However, the segment is projected to grow with the negative growth rate over the forecast period owing to the loss of patent and exclusivity of major drugs, such as Nexium and Prilosec. Among the different drug class, biologics are anticipated to grow with the highest growth rate, i.e. 11.6% over the forecast period. In 2021-2027, this segment is projected to lead the market with more than USD 17.4 billion revenue generation.

COVID-19 Impact & Recovery Analysis

The proposed report from AnalystView Market Insights suggests three possible forecast scenarios (probable, optimistic, and pessimistic) considering the COVID-19 impact. Our ongoing research analysis amplifies our framework to ensure the inclusion of underlying COVID-19 crisis impact and potential paths forward. The designed report is delivering detailed insights on COVID-19 considering the changes in consumer demand, purchasing patterns, re-routing of the supply chain, and the significant interventions of governments. The updated study provides insights, and forecast, considering the COVID-19 impact on the market.

Regional Takeaway

Geographically, North America dominated the global market. In 2019, the region recorded USD 14.48 billion and is projected to dominate the market in future. Favorable government initiatives to increase the uptake of gastrointestinal therapeutics drive the market growth in this region. For instance, the Integrated Global Action Plan for Diarrhoea by UNICEF and WHO aims at minimizing preventable childhood deaths due to diarrhea by providing interventions and services to raise awareness and provide access to treatment and preventive measures. However, Asia Pacific region is expected to grow with the highest CAGR over the forecast period.

Key Vendor Takeaway

The report also discusses the leading players in global gastrointestinal therapeutics market. The report enlists companies such as Abbott, Allergan, GlaxoSmithKline plc, Takeda Pharmaceutical and Pfizer, Inc., among others. Strategic collaboration and new product proliferation have made this market very dynamic. The collaboration of multinational companies with small-scale participants creates rivalry among key players.

For example, in September 2019, Takeda Pharmaceuticals collaborated with Structural Genomics Consortium (SGC) to develop new intervention methods for the treatment of inflammatory bowel disease. This implies that strategic engagement to expand product offering is considered to be one of the most factors.

The market size and forecast for each segment has been provided for the period 2016 to 2027, considering 2019 as the base year. The report also provides the compounded annual growth rate (% CAGR) for the forecast period 2021 to 2027 for every reported segment.

The years considered for the study are:

Historical Year – 2016 to 2018
Base Year – 2019
Estimated Year – 2020
Projected Year – 2027

The proposed reports analyse and evaluates the COVID-19 impact, and anticipated change on the future market scenario on this industry, by taking into the account the economic, political, technological, and social, parameters.
