Peptic ulcers are ulcers on lining of stomach, lower esophagus, or small intestine causing abdominal discomfort. These are caused due to erosion from stomach acids and inflammation by Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) infection. The symptoms of peptic ulcers include burning, stomach pain, bloating/belching, fatty food intolerance, heart burn and nausea. Increased risk of peptic ulcers is associated with smoking, drinking and stress. Left untreated, peptic ulcers results in internal bleeding, perforation and obstruction of digestive tract passage.

In the United States, peptic ulcer disease (PUD) affects approximately 4.5 million people annually. According to Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), prevalence of H. pylori infection worldwide is approximately 50%, of which around 80%–90% is found in developing countries, and approximately up to 35%–40% in the United States. According to studies highest prevalence of H. pylori infection was observed in Africa (70.1%), South America (69.4%), and Western Asia (66.6%) and regions with the lowest prevalence are Oceana (24.4%), Western Europe (34.3%), and North America (37.1%).

North America accounts for highest market share with high prevalence of ulcers and high treatment cost. Changing life style habits such as untimely meal patterns, chronic acidity, etc. might impact market growth positively in APAC region in forecast period.

Higher incidence rate of peptic ulcers, growing geriatric population, changes in disease management, increased prevalence of stress induced ulcers, increase in smoking rate, easy availability of medicine and availability of affordable therapy, long term treatment duration and increase in the use of NSAID’s are considered as major key drivers for the peptic ulcers treatment market. The major market restraints for treatment of peptic ulcers include poor pipeline productivity, drug resistance, adverse effects caused by drug administration and rise of generics and patent expiry of ulcer drugs.

The major challenge is to develop novel vaccines, advanced technological products with lesser side effects and more efficacy for the treatment of peptic ulcers in the forecast period. Investment in R&D productivity and development of pipeline investigational products and focusing more on development of bismuth-based quadruple therapy might impact the peptic ulcers market growth positively in the forecast period.

Major companies for the Treatment of Peptic Ulcers include Daewoong Pharmaceutical, Abbott Laboratories, AstraZeneca, Takeda Pharmaceutical, Pfizer, Abbott Laboratories, AstraZeneca, Cadila Healthcare, Boehringer Ingelheim, Taiho Pharmaceuticals and GlaxoSmithKline Pharmaceuticals.
