The disorders include constipation, irritable bowel, ulcerative colitis, and peptic ulcer diseases.

Western countries, such as the US, Canada, and the UK, are witnessing a high GI incidence rate due to increasing obesity in the adult population and less consumption of dietary fibers. As per the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, in 2018, the number of visits to physician offices with the digestive system's diseases as the primary diagnosis was 22.4 million in the US. The incidence and prevalence of GI disorders are higher in the adult and elderly population. As the population ages, the disease burden is expected to increase. The GI disorders, such as inflammatory bowel diseases, Crohn’s disease, and ulcerative colitis, are common, chronic inflammatory conditions that affect a vast population worldwide. This is due to a sedentary lifestyle, changing dietary habits, stress, and other factors. The incidence and prevalence of IBS have increased in the last few decades worldwide. As per the International Foundation for Gastrointestinal Disorders, Inc., IBS is the most common functional GI disorder with a prevalence rate of 10–15% globally. Also, it is one of the most common conditions for a visit to a doctor. There are around 2.4–3.5 million physician visits for IBS annually in the US. The cost of direct medical expenses and indirect costs associated with loss of productivity and work absenteeism due to IBS is estimated to be around US$ 21 billion annually.

Moreover, in the last few years, the cases of IBD have increased worldwide. IBD is a chronic inflammation of the digestive tract and is of two types: Ulcerative colitis and Crohn's disease. As per the Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation of America, IBD affects approximately 1.6 million Americans. Around 70,000 new cases of IBD are diagnosed every year in the US. Apart from the US, Europe is also witnessing increasing burden of chronic digestive diseases due to the aging population and lifestyle factors such as rising obesity and heavy alcohol consumption. For instance, as per the EFCCA, around 3.4 million people in Europe are living with IBD. Thus, the factors mentioned above are driving the adoption of GI drugs during the forecast period.
