Abstract, Snapshot, Market Analysis & Market Definition: Global Irritable Bowel Syndrome Treatment Market

The global Irritable Bowel Syndrome Treatment market size is projected to reach US$ 3.24 billion by 2026, from US$ 1.82 billion in 2020, at a CAGR of 10.1% during 2021-2026. Rising prevalence of target disease, coupled with increasing uptake of drugs for the same, is driving the market.

Furthermore, rising commercialization of existing products in different regions is expected to accelerate growth over the forecast period. Increasing adoption of Linzess in U.S., Europe, and Japan has been significantly contributing to revenue growth. Linzess was approved in China in January 2019, which is further expected to give the market a boost.

The market mostly remains underserved, with a considerable number of opportunities for pharmaceutical companies to address several unmet needs in this therapy area. There are a few promising products currently under clinical trials, which can further accelerate growth. Product sales are projected to grow significantly over the forecast period, mainly due to increasing prevalent population and commercialization of novel drugs to treat Constipation-predominant irritable bowel syndrome (IBS).

Irritable bowel syndrome is one of the most common functional gastrointestinal disorders, with an estimated global prevalence rate of 10-15%. According to the International Foundation for Gastrointestinal Disorders (IFFGD) in 2016, it was estimated that IBS affects around 25-45 million in the U.S. About 2 in 3 IBS patients are female and most people with this condition are under the age of 50.

The exact cause of symptoms is unknown and symptoms may result from a disturbance in the way the brain, nervous system, and gut interact. This can lead to changes in normal bowel sensation and movement. According to a survey by IFFGD, approximately 2,000 patients with IBS reported that diagnosis of their conditions was typically made 6.6 years after their symptoms began.

Approximately 20-40% of all patient visits to gastroenterologists are due to symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome. Yet numerous people remain unaware and undiagnosed that their symptoms indicate a medically recognized disorder. As a result of this, numerous awareness campaigns are being organized to raise awareness about the condition.

For instance, The IBS Network in U.K. ran several activities throughout April in 2018, to overcome the stigma surrounding the illness. The campaign was targeted at people living with IBS and physicians who work to help those fighting the symptoms. These campaigns and initiatives are expected to raise awareness about the disorder and encourage patients to seek treatment for their conditions. This, in turn, is expected to accelerate IBS treatment market growth.
