Increasing Prevalence of Irritable Bowel Syndrome and Associated Conditions

Irritable bowel syndrome is a majorly observed chronic gastrointestinal condition that is caused due to disturbances in bowel habits and abdominal pain. The disease is also known as spastic colon, irritable colon, mucous colitis, and spastic colitis. Irritable bowel syndrome shows symptoms such as abdominal pain, constipation, diarrhea, and cramping. Health systems across the regions are witnessing considerable growth in the incidence of irritable bowel syndrome. A data published by International Foundation for Gastrointestinal Disorders states that among all IBS patients, about 40% patients have mild IBS, around 35% have moderate IBS, and an estimated 25% suffer from severe IBS. Many people don't recognize IBS symptoms.

Certain factors such as food allergies, developing stages of gastroenteritis, sporadic movements of colon, abnormal composition of serotonin in colon, and mild celiac disease are among the risk factors that can cause IBS. These factors are projected to accelerate the rate of IBS prevalence across the world. For instance, according to a study published on NCBI in 2018, IBS is estimated to affect around 10% to 16% of the US population each year. Such staggering prevalence of IBS is likely to boost the irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) treatment market during the forecast period.

Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) Treatment Market: Segmental Overview

Based on type, the irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) treatment market is segmented into mixed IBS (IBS-M), IBS with diarrhea (IBS-D), and IBS with constipation (IBS-C). The mixed IBS (IBS-M) segment held the largest share of the market in 2020. Also, the same segment is expected to register the highest CAGR during 2021–2028. In the coming years, the rising prevalence of IBS among women and men is anticipated to propel the demand for the medicines that can treat combined symptoms of constipation and diarrhea. According to updated Rome IV criteria, the reverse condition of IBS-M is described as a model of hard or irregular stools in more than 25% of bowel movements. The prevalence is higher in the geriatric population. Therefore, the demand for medicines to treat mixed IBS is likely to grow significantly during the forecast period.

The linaclotide segment held the largest share of the market in 2020.
