Market Insights

Constipation is one of the most common conditions diagnosed in clinical practice, with up to one-fifth of the general population suffering from chronic constipation. Certain studies have reported 24% to 50% prevalence in older adults. It is also observed that between 10% and 18% geriatrics in community dwellings and 74% residents in nursing homes regularly use laxatives. Constipation can have significant impact on everyday functions and quality of life of patients. Severe cases of constipation may also lead to coronary episodes, cerebral ischemia and syncope. In order to mitigate the complications arising from uncontrolled or un-managed constipation, several types of laxatives are frequently prescribed to such patients, particularly to those belonging to the higher age group.

Among the various types of laxatives, several literatures indicate that osmotic laxatives demonstrate the best benefits to aged patients. Old age patients experience straining as dominant symptom of constipation. This symptom is well managed in majority of cases with administration of osmotic laxatives such as lactulose and polyethylene glycol. the polyethylene glycol laxatives market is expected to reach worth USD 1,271.98 Mn by 2022. The continuing expansion in the pool of geriatric population will increase the need for effective constipation management drugs.
