"Designing Growth Strategies is in our DNA"
Gastric ulcer occurs when the ability of mucosal lining of the stomach, small intestine or lower oesophagus, to resist the acidic digestive fluids gets reduced, which result in painful and open sore formation. Gastric ulcer drugs are used to treat the erosion of gastrointestinal lining due to a variety of factors. The most common cause of gastric ulcers is the growing rate of infection by Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) bacteria, which is found in as many as half of us.
Other causes of gastric ulcers are extensive use of non-steroidal and anti-inflammatory drugs, lifestyle changes, and tobacco & alcohol consumption. According to Centre of Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), approximately two-thirds of the world’s population is infected by H. pylori. In the United States, around 500,000 to 850,000 people suffer from gastric ulcers every year. Furthermore, the growing prevalence of stress-induced ulcers due to increasing smoking rate, changing lifestyle and diet, and growing geriatric population are likely to promote the global gastric ulcer market growth during the forecast period.

Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) is a spiral-shaped bacterium that is found in the lining of the stomach and duodenum which produces urease, an enzyme that neutralizes the acid in the stomach by making it less acidic. H. pylori are likely to spread through food and water, and hence a large number of population is affected, leading to an increasing prevalence of H.pylori infections. Also, other major factors responsible for driving the gastric ulcer treatment market is extensive use of non-steroidal and anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) like Aspirin, Ibuprofen.
However, patent expiration of the peptic ulcer drugs and wide generic competition worldwide is declining the gastric ulcer treatment market size.
